The Elegant Occasions Experience
A note from our owner:
“As we near our 20 year anniversary, I find myself reflecting back on why we started the journey to open Elegant Occasions. Back in the year 2000, I wrote a mission statement that I have never shared publicly. You see, the experience that we provide to the bride and the way she feels was on my mind and of utmost importance even way back then – before we even selected our location.
Over the past 20 years, I wish I could say that at all times our mission statement was accomplished. But like any business, we have hit bumps in the road along our path and have had experiences that have lead to us learning and growing and evolving to who we are today. Fortunately those moments have been few and far between and the amazing celebrations with our customers have reinforced our love for this business.
Today, as in the past couple of decades, when we fall down, we learn from it. When we succeed, we celebrate with one another. When we provide a moment in someone’s life that we know will become a milestone, we embrace the joy that surrounds that moment. We shed tears of happiness along with brides’ families. We share the pain of frustration when things don’t go as planned. We hi-5 and hug when things go perfectly and we rejoice! We become best friends with co-workers, and create a chosen family within our team and even with customers. There have been so many emotions, so many celebrations, so many memories that have and continue to happen.
Today more than ever, the words I wrote in our mission statement ring true. What it means to me and to our team holds a dear place in our hearts. We talk about it, we interpret it, and we share how we can keep it strong. So as we approach our 20 year anniversary, during the crazy year of 2020, I would like to share it with you today.
This is a renewal of our commitment to provide an experience to our brides like none other. Finding your dress is a major moment in life. It’s a moment to celebrate and forget about all other stresses in your life. It’s a time to connect with those most important to you. It’s the most important garment you are ever going to wear and we are honored that you are sharing that moment with us.
Everything we do from the layout of our store providing you your own private bridal suite to the last moment we see you before you walk down the aisle is done with this mission statement in mind. This is our promise to you:
Our Mission Statement
Elegant Occasions is a full service bridal and formalwear retail store specializing in personal, quality service for our customers.
We understand that whatever the occasion, our customer deserves to be treated with respect and grace.
Our goal is to provide an environment that fosters feeling of comfort and trust toward our customers, and from our customers.
We believe it is important to take the time to get to know what type of person our customer is. And, therefore, be able to better assist him or her in selecting styles to complement and enhance that person’s identity.
Thank you for sharing in the last 20 years with us. Thank you for bearing with us through growing pains and teachable moments. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your lives and memories. We humbly look forward to sharing the emotion of many more moments with our customers and treasure the experiences we will continue to have with you!” ~Greta Wood
