Meet the Team Behind the Seams: Ariana!

Meet the Team Behind the Seams: Ariana!

Ariana joined Mignonette Bridal as a fitter and seamstress after pestering Kpoene for months to hire her, in 2013. In 2018 she worked with Kpoene to launch the alterations side of Mignonette as its own business—Ette: The Wedding Tailor. On any given day she can be found doing fittings, sewing, answering phones, or keeping up with paperwork—all with the goal to do whatever she can to help brides feel their most beautiful.

Ask an Ette Bride: Taylor!

As one of our very first Ette brides, who even attended our opening launch party, Taylor truly is the quintessential Ette bride—sentimental but a little nontraditional, interested in standing out, supporting small women-owned businesses, and above all FUN as is clear from the photos of her jumping into the pool at her reception in her gown!! Her gorgeous Costa Rican wedding to her lovely husband Luke is truly the stuff of dreams, and we are so grateful she shared her gorgeous photos from Sylvia Guardia of their big day! Scroll through to read about Taylor’s experiences with planning her wedding, and see photos of the fitting to real wedding process!
