On September 22, Bridal Elegance held the Bridal Elegance Pageant Prep and welcomed Miss USA 2012, Olivia Culpo,as a featured speaker to Bridal Elegance, the Midwest’s largest pageant retailer! Olivia spoke about her experiences in preparation for Miss Rhode Island and for Miss USA, as well as her current preparations for the Miss Universe pageant which will be held in December. Olivia was a very down to
earth girl with a great personality that everyone enjoyed, and Olivia was gracious enough to take photos and sign autographs with her fans. She was in awe at the hundreds of pageant gowns Bridal Elegance has to offer and tried on a few exclusive Mac Duggal pageant dresses to get ideas for Miss Universe. We were very blessed to have her at our store and hope to work with her and the organization in the future as they were all very wonderful guests
Our other featured speakers were Don Baker on Interview, Stephanie Piller on Walking and Image, Donna Donovan on Fitness, Dr. Michael Piller on Nutrition and the Soderstrom Institute on skincare/makeup/ and Plastic surgery, Allyce King Swimwear, and MacDuggal for their trunk show and their reps. We were also so pleased that Tim Kretschmann from the Pageant Cast was here for the entire weekend. Our pageant prep featured trunk shows from MacDuggal, Sherri Hill, the Lenz Collection and Tony Bowls, and a fashion show by Bridal Elegance and our great models- all visting queens!
Bridal Elegance wanted to thank all the visiting queens and contestants that attended and hoped
everyone had a great time! We look forward to watching all of you competing!!
