Kirstie Kelly's showroom in El Segundo, California provides the brides with a safe and comfortable place where women find fantastic service without the pressure.  Kirstie talks about her next collection, with her signature quiet details - more texture, hand-made flowers, pleating and draping.  The style is contemporary, architectural, yet romantic with fine beading and lace details. 

Kirstie Kelly has created wedding gowns in royal blue, misty green and pale pink.  But most brides prefer soft white.  For those that want to accent their look with a favorite color, Kirstie recommends color beading, sashes and fabulous shoes, such as Jimmy Choo's in gold.

Kirstie Kelly's wedding words of wisdom - Be true to yourself.  Don't worry about what others say.  If you love it, then it's the right gown.

Kirstie Kelly believes that the single most important factor in selecting the perfect wedding gown is to establish a connection with the gown designer and sales staff.  What sets Kirstie and her team apart is that they take the time to get to know the bride and understand the vision and the type of wedding that the bride has in mind.  Listening carefully, they select only the most fitting gowns.  At Kirstie Kelly's salon, brides are often surprised to find their dream wedding gown on the first try.

Kirstie reminds the bride to consider the type of gown that her groom would enjoy seeing her in.  After all, every bride would like to hear that gasp when her groom sees her for the first time on their wedding day.

Kirstie Kelly prides herself at designing the perfect gown for each body style and budget, with each gown being of uncompromising quality.  The Kirstie Kelly collection has sizes ranging from 0 to 36, with pricing from $1,000 to $15,000.

Kirstie Kelly is masterful at dressing the supporting actresses, the mother of the bride and groom.  Her designs give these important ladies the confidence to be the elegant and gracious hostesses on this most important occasion.
