Ryann, Bridal Consultant

What is your favorite part about helping brides and working for Charlotte’s Weddings? How long have you worked here?Ryann

I’ve been working at Charlotte’s since July 2015. There are a lot of things I love about working at Charlotte’s!  I really love being able to be a part of such a special and important day for my brides and having the chance to help them feel and look their absolute best. I also love the people that I work with, and being surrounded by such awesome and fun women all day is great!

Do you have a favorite moment/story from working at Charlotte’s?

I’ve met so many amazing brides and had so much fun working with so many women!  I think my favorite experience though was getting to help my best friend find her wedding dress!  It was so fun to be her consultant and be such a big piece of her experience.  Having all my friends in the store and giving them a chance to see what I get to do everyday was really great! Seeing my friends all cheer for my best friend as she said yes to the dress was a moment I will never forget!

What kind of advice would you give your brides about dress shopping?

To come with an open mind, and to not be afraid to try something on that you might not have originally picked for yourself!  Be sure to bring people whose opinions you trust, but know that in the end the most important opinion is your own.  Finding your wedding gown doesn’t have to be a stressful experience, so just enjoy the experience and really take it all in.

What do you like to do when you aren’t working at Charlotte’s?

I love movies and reading Harry Potter, going out to new restaurants and continuing my search for the best tacos in Portland!
