Suite Bridal opened in June of 2014 in the heart of the Virginia Highlands. The boutique was opened by La Raine Devenie who was the founder of our sister store, La Raine’s Bridal. La Raine wanted a boutique that had a fun and quirky atmosphere that could showcase her New Zealand background. While building the boutique, she began with a lofty feel by keeping the original exposed brick and adding in pops of turquoise. After each visit to New Zealand, La Raine would bring back antiques to decorate the boutique. When you look around you will see a bird in every room!
Once Suite opened, La Raine discovered that the magical price point for Suite brides was under $2,000. That’s’ when we went to work to make sure all gowns that were brought into the boutique remained under $2k. We believe at Suite you don’t have to spend a fortune on your gown! We also believe that there should be multiple samples in multiple sizes so every bride can try on the gown of their dreams. Our gowns range from size 6 to size 26!
At our boutique, we have a ton of energy! We like to say that we aren’t your average bridal boutique. We believe that trying on wedding dresses is the best part of planning a wedding (besides the wedding of course!). Our consultants strive to give brides the best experience possible by creating a zero-pressure atmosphere plus all the Disney princess vibes. When you step into Suite, you become our bestie, our sister, our family, our Suite bride!
