Olivia Duran’s dream of owning her own bridal boutique evolved when she tagged along with a friend who was having difficulty finding a wedding dress. “We had a hard time finding a place that offered her a unique and satisfying experience,” Olivia says. “Every bridal shop we visited left her feeling frustrated.” Having watched her friend’s frustration and disappointment firsthand, Olivia knew she had to change the game for others. “I wanted to offer brides a richer, more unique experience with a bridal store that was going to be different.”
With a background in small business and a passion for weddings, Olivia turned her dream into a reality and opened the doors of Liv & Love Bridal in February 2016. The full-service bridal salon, just south of Boerne, has since become a destination for brides from all over Texas and beyond. “It always amazes me when I get so many brides from out of town,” Olivia says. “We’ve even had brides travel all the way from Mexico and Canada, and I am beyond grateful to help each of them find her dream dress.”
The one-stop bridal boutique is designed specifically with today’s bride in mind, offering a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere to shop for gowns spanning both classic and contemporary looks as well as one-of-a-kind custom styles. “We are here not only to help you find your dream wedding gown, but to provide you with the experience you have always dreamed of,” Olivia says. “We keep a curated collection of dresses we love, but we can work with you to build a custom look.”
The fashion-savvy shop owner often goes to bridal markets in search of new and unique trends to offer her clients. “Fashion is constantly evolving, and it is amazing to see all the new styles emerge season after season. It gives me such a drive to bring more distinct styles to my store, and picking them myself makes is that much more special. It defines our one-of-a-kind style.”
Whether brides are looking for something simple or fashion forward, Liv & Love Bridal has it all. “We have dresses that seem to never go out of style, chic trendy gowns that turn heads as the bride walks down the aisle, and even stunning custom gowns that truly enhance a bride’s beauty in a magical way,” Olivia describes. The boutique’s catalog also features a wide range of sizes and designs for all tastes. “We celebrate the diversity of every Liv & Love bride.”
More than just a dress shop, one can find an array of accessories here, too—from shoes to jewelry. Liv & Love Bridal is dedicated to assisting brides in the hunt for the perfect wedding accessories and even offers customization for that one-of-a-kind touch the store is known for. “We work with many great designers and can customize an accessory if you are searching for just the right piece to complement your dress or if you’re looking for a wonderful gift,” Olivia explains.
The shop also has an assortment of picture-perfect bridesmaid dresses, beautiful flower girl attire, and of course, gorgeous ensembles for mothers of the bride and groom. And to top it all off, men can rent their tuxedoes there, as well.
Beyond gowns and fashion sense, Olivia’s passion for her customers is what truly makes Liv & Love Bridal stand out. Her and her staff’s commitment ensures impeccable quality and service, and that commitment is something brides can feel the minute they step into the store. Olivia’s motto is simple: “Every bride deserves an unforgettable gown shopping experience, and at Liv & Love Bridal, we offer that experience. There is truly something here for everyone.”
