Small Beginnings


We've been working in the bridal industry since 1998. We started out of our home, as a part time business, as wedding decorators. Which quickly turned into a full time business, decorating 100's of wedding and events each year. We worked with many brides and we quickly started to realize that central southern Minnesota needed a one stop shopping experience for all their wedding needs. We started a plan and we’ve never looked back. In 2005 with all of our hard work and determanation we were lucky enough to finally open up our first storefront, Valerie's Bridal, in Mankato, Minnesota. We seriously thought our dreams had come true. And since then, that dream has grown to New Ulm, MN, with the opening of Ashlee Bridal, Prom & Tuxedos, in March of 2014. Each store has unique dress styles and designers to enhance each shopping experience... From those small beginnings, our dreams have become our reality. And we LOVE it!
