Perfect Poffie Moments with Real Bride Jordan…
Jordan and her hubby just celebrated a stunningly beautiful wedding day this past June and we were just busting with excitement to share some insight into her day, the process and those fabulous Mikaella wedding dress photos!
Poffe: Ok Jordan, Let’s start from the beginning – How did you know your fiancé was the one?
Jordan: “Because on our first date I felt like I have known him my whole life… he was the guy I’ve prayed for my whole life.”
Poffie: Wedding planning and can be overwhelming and fun. What is one tip you would give a bride to be?
Jordan: “Enjoy every moment of your engagement and wedding day because it’s the only day that’s all about you!”
Poffie: There are so many dress boutiques and options. Can you share a little about why you chose Poffie and what your experience at Poffie Girls was like?
Jordan: “Poffie girls was an awesome experience from the very beginning! I tried on about 5 dresses and liked them but, I knew none of them were the “one.” The 6th dress I tried on was the “One!” I felt like a princess in it and I couldn’t wait to wear it on my big day!”
Poffie: YES! We are so happy that sixth one was IT! Plus we thank you for finding your YES at Poffie Girls. Tell us all, what was your favorite part of the dress?
Jordan: “My favorite part of my dress was the back of my dress. I loved the straps and how low it was. Just stunning.”
Poffie: Ok we all know girls hate taking that dress off for the last time! What are your plans for your dress now?
Jordan: “I plan on having my dress preserved in case one day someone in my family may want to wear it.”
Poffie: So if you could only pick one memory or moment from your wedding day what would be your favorite?
Jordan: “My favorite memory of my wedding day is when I walked down the stairs and met Blake at the alter.”
Poffie: Well what does life look like now…after wedding day?
Jordan: “We honeymooned in Negril, Jamaica at The Caves and currently living in Cramerton, NC!”
♥Congratulations Blake and Jordan♥

Who is a Madi Lane Bride?
It is easier to describe who Madi Lane is by describing who she is not. She is not the observation of monotonous traditions. She is not a part of the pack. She is not a face in the crowd. She is not one in the same… she is everything that is ‘woman’. Madi Lane offers an opportunity to find the bridal ‘self ’, an offer extended to everyone regardless of status, shape, size and stature. She embraces the superego and flirts with her identity to reflect the essence of who she is. She is a champion of women and their individual distinctions. She is the brainchild of modern romantic.
Reservations for appointments will go crazy fast with this launch so don’t delay and book your time quickly.
September 26 – 29, 2019
Six Sunday appointments will also be made available for this event with a reservation fee of $25 (will apply towards your purchase).

Tips for Shopping NATIONAL BRIDAL SALES EVENT…
When Poffie Girls is having their BIGGEST sale of the year…here are some tips to make it even BETTER ♥
1. BOOK YOUR APPOINTMENT…LIKE NOW.
2. START EARLY
Check store hours, and plan to be at the store when it opens. By starting early, you’ll ensure you are arriving before the rest of the brides-to-be and getting the best of the best from the assortment. Be rested, hydrated and not hungry. You want the focus to be on how you feel in your dress and not that your tummy is growling.
If you are not all about the crowds, try to shop the sale on a weekday instead of waiting for the weekend. The store will likely be less busy, and you’ll be able to try on more gowns and ask more questions.
4. DO YOUR HOMEWORK
Browse the store website or designers sites in advance to try to identify your favorite styles and details so you know what to look for as you’re sorting through racks of sale dresses.
5. KEEP AN OPEN MIND
If you’re after a true steal, don’t place too much emphasis on a few missing beads, a small spot or loose thread. With a major clearance sale, not all dresses will be in perfect condition, but it’s nothing some vision and a great seamstress can’t perfect for you.
6. DRESS THE PART
You are on the hunt for the wedding dress of your dreams at a great value, and so are other fellow brides-to-be. Dressing appropriately will make the process a lot smother! Opt for comfortable shoes, clothes you can easily slip into and out of, wear nude undergarments, and bring along a pair of high heels similar to what you plan to wear on the big day.
7. LIMIT YOUR ENTOURAGE
If you are shopping a major bridal sale, try to limit your entourage to one or two people max. Although it’s a special moment you want to share with those closest to you, having too many opinions in this scenario can obstruct you from the task at hand.
8. DON’T BE AFRAID TO COMMIT
Go into the sale knowing that you may or may not walk out of the store with your dream dress at a great value. If you find it, don’t be afraid to commit. Realize if you walk out…it might be someone else’s dream dress TOMORROW!
Some say the dress picks you… When you know, you’ll know!.
Get ready to say…YES to the DRESS at Poffie Girls during our biggest sale of the year!
