Wow, what a year it has been at Miss Ruby! 2022 has a been a year of growth, learning and so much happiness for both our team and our brides! From empowering guests while finding the dress of their dreams, showcasing inclusion, diversity and empowerment at our annual bridal fashion show, to building connections with our community, local vendors and beautiful brides, there's truly so much to be grateful for!
Thank you to our Milwaukee community, to our brides, to our team. Thank you for the best year yet!
Enjoy a brief recap of all the exciting moments of 2022!
We hosted our 3rd annual RISE: a bridal fashion show in April! With a focus on inclusion, diversity and empowerment, this show truly made an impact on each individual who participated and attended. We showcased 100+ gowns and worked with the most incredible team of local vendors and models! The best part, we were able to donate over $3,000 to the Milwaukee LGBT Community Center!
Over 600 bride-to-be's said YES to the dress of their dreams! It truly was an honor to be a part of so many special moments and we couldn't be more grateful. We love our jobs and love to see the smile on our brides faces when they say yes to their dream dress!
It wouldn't have been the amazing year it was without our incredible Miss Ruby Team! We hosted a team bonfire, celebrated lots of birthdays and anniversaries, got ready for busy Saturday's with yoga and wore lots of coordinating outfits!
In March and August, our management team headed to Chicago to meet with our designers and select new gowns to bring to the boutique! You all loved following along and getting a sneak peek at what will be arriving soon!
We celebrated our 15th Anniversary in September with month long specials, a team dinner and tons of photos reminscing the past 15 years as a boutique!
Our team prioritized diversity and inclusion education this year to ensure EVERY person who walks through our doors feels welcomed, loved, confident and included. The Milwaukee LGBT Community Center, Married in Milwaukee and UWM LGBTQ+ Resource Center hosted trainings for our team and we are so grateful for all the knowledge they shared!
We tried on countless gowns as a team and filmed so much exciting content! When we aren't helping customers find their dream dress, you can probably find us wearing our favorite gowns while answering the phone and responding to emails!
We hosted 4 photo shoots with 2 exclusively curvy focused shoots! Working with local photographers and models brings us so much joy and the amount of empowerment behind the scenes always leaves us feeling so inspired. Each photo shoot helps us diversify our images to ensure all brides feel represented!
2022 was one of the best years yet and we could not be more excited for all that is to come in 2023! Thank you for following along on this journey with us and thank you for your endless support!
