Paige, Essense of Australia, Allure Bridals and Pronovias. Dubasik says she selects her collection from designers all over the world. Each year, she attends bridal fash- ion events where each gown is hand- selected. “I love featuring gowns that aren’t seen everywhere because every bride wants to be an individual and be unique on her wedding day,” she says.
According to Dubasik, phenomenal service and knowledgeable style consult- ants set Evaline’s Bridal apart from other boutiques. Style consultants are trained on what silhouettes best compliment dif- ferent body types. They are also knowl- edgeable on the wide variety of designer gowns. “Brides are often unsure of the styles and silhouettes that best compli- ment them, and we have the expertise and knowledge to educate them,” Dubasik says. “The comfort level offered by our style consultants makes a bride’s journey so much more pleasurable.”
Every year, Dubasik produces Evaline’s Bridal Show held at the Covelli Centre in Youngstown. The event gives brides the chance to meet with local wedding profes- sionals and see a fashion show featuring the latest bridal gown trends. “We bring together leading bridal professionals in our area to create a one-of-a-kind experi- ence for brides,” Dubasik explains. “We select the most reputable vendors to be part of this event.” In addition, Evaline’s Bridal is participating in the National Bridal Sale Day held the third Saturday in July where brides can take advantage of special savings.
A visit to Evaline’s Bridal has become a tradition for many local families. In fact, many former brides return with their daughters or granddaughters who are now getting married. “We’ve cried with our brides. We’ve laughed with them. We’ve taught girls how to walk in high heels and carry their gowns,” Dubasik says.
