I’ve Been “Bridalized”

It’s with great pleasure and honor that I announce that Mark Hayes Photography has joined up with one of Denver’s best and most unique wedding planning boutique’s, Bridalize.

Bridalize describes itself as “a unique planning boutique and web destination where brides research and meet an exclusive collection of Colorado’s top wedding vendors.

With BRIDALIZE, brides will enjoy planning their weddings in comfort, convenience and with confidence knowing our chosen vendors are the best in the industry. We are truly a one-stop-shop for dream weddings, and best of all it is a complimentary service to brides and their parties.”

While the idea of a collection of vendors working together in a collective is not totally unique in Denver, there are others, some web based and some with physical locations, it is a few things about mix of Bridalize that is unique.

Bridalize not only has a physical boutique but the staff of Bridalize are independent of the various wedding vendors they represent.   Since they are not themselves wedding vendors (for instance wedding planners or wedding photographers) they can assist the bride in finding the right planner or photographer amongst all they represent without a conflict in interest.   In addition the staff, Jessica, Shauna and Emily are all wonderful people to work with for a bride looking for either a specific vendor or a bit of everything for an upcomming wedding.

The Bridalize boutique is in the Village Shops at The Landmark right off I-25 and Belleview.
5370 Greenwood Plaza Blvd, Suite 109
Greenwood Village, CO 80111

Hours of Operation
Tuesday and Thursday: 11-8
Wednesday and Friday: 11-6
Saturday: 10-6

With the wonderful restaurants in the Village Shops  it makes a great place for a couple to go have lunch then drop in for some ideas for their wedding.

The other wonderful benefit for the bride is using Bridalize doesn’t cost her anything.   Since Bridalize is funded by the vendors they represent the bride can freely come in and browse around and get their assistance.

Bridalize also offers wedding vendors some significant advantages that made it a pretty easy decision for me when I was invited to join.

For starters as a Denver Wedding Photographer I have a section of wall space in the boutique set aside to show of my work, in my case since I love canvas my space is filled with some wonderful gallery wraps.   So if a bride drops in and is drawn to my work from the display the ladies at Bridalize can tell her a bit about my style and either get her in touch with me or setup a meeting.

Speaking of meetings the other benefit of being listed here is being able to use the ample space they have for client meetings.   I’ve already used the meeting space on several occasions this month for meeting not only with potential clients but also for current clients meeting to discuss their timeline a week or two before their wedding.

It also gives me a great chance to network with some other wonderful Denver area wedding vendors.

One such vendor whose display area I love is  It’s a Gift by Lisa.  You can explore Lisa’s extensive wedding gift collections. Not only does she offer elegant and memorable gifts for the bride, groom, wedding party, and guests, but also features accessories for the wedding ceremony and reception. Many of the products can be personalized with engraving, embroidery or imprinting.

Here’s a few more shots from around the boutique, hope to see you down there sometime.

  • Congrats, Mark! Jessica and everyone at Bridalize are great!
