CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Alright ladies, one of the best parts about being a bride is saying 'yes to the the dress,' right?
Well, a couple of Charlotteans are changing the game when it comes to the second most important dress of the day: Your bridesmaids!
Now, the movie "Bridesmaids" is easily a fan-favorite, but let's be real, the last thing you want to do is argue with your besties! Especially when it comes to which bridesmaids dress looks best. Luckily, there are some ladies in town to help.
Co-founder of Brideside Sonali Lamba says, "What was most important was that we made whatever company we started - a piece of cake."
And let them eat cake, at Brideside! Right now, there are only two showrooms in the country and one is right here is in the Queen City.
Co-founder Nicole Staple says, "Charlotte is a bit of a homecoming for Sonali and I. I am from North Carolina and Sonali went to college here."
So what is their company exactly? Well, depending on your schedule and availability, a group of stylists allows women to shop online, shop through a try at home program or head into a showroom. They set up a "closet" for the bridal party and take care of all the hard work.
Lamba says, "So that our brides and bridesmaids could focus on celebrating their friendships and celebrating one another." After all, this is supposed to be the best time of your life, right?
The dynamic duo is wasting no time cashing in on wedding season here in the south. In 2016, the average North Carolinian couple spent more than $24,000 on their special day according to theweddingreport.com. Not to mention, the days of putting your best gals in a less than best dress are over!
Chances are, you remember the moment Pippa Middleton narrowly stole the show from the Duchess on her big day, by wearing that flattering silhouette dress.
"Brides are very very conscientious of their bridesmaids now because it's cool bridesmaids are now an extension of the decor," Lamba said.
The flagship location is in Chicago, but the ladies headed back home and packed their beautiful dresses ranging in price, size, style and designer to Atherton Mill.
Whether there's two or 22 in your party, at Brideside, there's no such thing as too many. The ladies say they their record right now, is 23 bridesmaids.
Ah, the more the merrier!
