A Bride's Design

A Bride's Design is owned by Laura Smith.  She received her BA in Fashion Design at Kent State University in 2002. Immediately following, in 2003, she opened A Bride’s Design, a chic bridal boutique.  Laura has a passion for classic elegance, sophisticated styles and exquisite knowledge of fabrics and laces.

For the past 18 years she has had the pleasure of assisting thousands of brides in discovering their dream wedding gown. By providing exceptional service and designing with a personal touch, Laura ensures that every bride has a charming and unique experience. She specializes in custom bridal wear and freelance design, thus providing a couture look for an affordable price.

A Bride's design is located in a historic, storefront home that was built in 1850 by the Hasley Garfeild family.  Laura is very excited to embrace the historic quality of the house as weddings, in essence, signify an era of glamor, elegance, and formality.
