Denver Style Magazine: Where did Brilliant Bridal originate, and how did it expand to Denver?
Malea Hutt: “Brilliant Bridal started in Mesa, Arizona and has expanded to four bridal boutiques across Arizona, Southern California and Denver. The Denver location is locally owned and operated. The Denver bridal market was in need of a new, fresh concept that was accessible to so many brides.”
DSM: What do you hope Brilliant Bridal will bring to the Denver community?
MH: “We offer Denver brides a great bridal shopping experience through friendly and experienced staff, a beautifully modern store that is fun to be in and amazing dresses at unbelievable prices. We think brides should try us first because we might just have exactly what you are looking for at a price point you can’t find anywhere else.”
DSM: Could you explain how the experience at Brilliant Bridal differs from other bridal boutiques in Denver?
MH: “Our modern boutiques specialize in selling designer overstock and closeout wedding gowns ‘off-the-rack.’ We carry dresses from the designers brides know, love and want to wear on their wedding day at prices that are always 30 to 80 percent off retail. Because all of our wedding dresses are sold off-the-rack with no ordering and no long waiting period, you can take your dress home the same day you find it! In addition to wedding dresses, we sell unique bridal accessories and jewelry. We carry over 300 dresses sizes 0-30, so brides can try on dresses in their size. Out stock of dresses changes daily and we have new dresses arriving every week to give Denver brides a ton of variety.”
DSM: Tell us about your new space! How you hope to utilize it and create a unique experience for Denver brides?
MH: “We fell in love with our space when we first saw it! First of all, we love being on S. Broadway. Our space has large skylights throughout that bring in ton of natural light. The light, along with our high ceilings gives the whole space an open, beautiful feel.”
