I grew up in Monroe WI and followed my passion for fashion and pursued a degree in Fashion Merchandising and Design at Illinois State University.
Upon graduation I moved to New York City and had a wonderful internship with Kenneth Cole where I learned so much! After a while I accepted a position with Macy’s West Corporate Offices in San Francisco, CA. I loved learning more about fashion and living in San Francisco with all the wonderful things there were to offer. But I missed the Midwest and moved back to WI.
I wanted to wake up every morning and do something I loved, so I opened Brandi’s Bridal Galleria, Etc. in 2003. Customer service I felt lacked in the bridal market in Southern WI, and I wanted to make people feel special and important through their entire bridal shopping experience.
My dream was to bring fashion forward gowns to WI and very good prices. I felt there was a need for fashion forward trends to be brought to southern WI.
With pricing in mind, I searched market after market in the US and Spain to find the most cutting edge styles at good price points to bring to WI. We offer many Designers that you cannot find in WI or Northern IL, so you will be an individual on your wedding day.
I live in New Glarus with my husband and two children.
