Retailer Spotlight: Blush Bridal Couture
A young and stylish retailer owned by passionate Amy and Anna in sunny California
13 Feb 2014
Brides and their entourages are greeted by flutes of champagne and bite sized desserts. It's no wonder business is booming at Blush Bridal Couture! The upscale gem is tucked away among other quaint small businesses and has quickly become a popular go-to boutique for Orange County brides. The interior design is just fabulous and credit is given to co-owner Anna Gonzalez for her use of bold black and white patterns and girly accents of color. Blush Bridal Couture is an Enzoani Platinum retailer graciously offering up their aesthetically pleasing space for many of Enoani's projects. You might recognize their shop in the Timeless video and most recently in a fun shoot highlighting the 7th Annual Fashion Event hostess, Lindsay Yenter from The Bachelor! Co-owner Amy Kretschmer gives us insight on how things got started at Blush and their experience as an authorized Enzoani retailer.

Q: What was the motivation/inspiration to open a bridal store? How did it all start?
A: Our passion for fashion was the foremost motivation for opening Blush. Also, when Anna got married a few years ago we were shocked at the lack of the “bridal experience” that the boutiques in Orange County had to offer. She told her mom in the dressing room of one store, “I’m gonna open a bridal boutique!” Amy was looking for a career change and has aways been drawn to fashion and retail. As best friends, the decision to open a store together was natural for us and just made sense. A year later Blush Bridal Couture was open!
Q: Who makes up the Blush Bridal Couture staff?
A: A group of young, energetic, and stylish girls. We have been very blessed with an amazing staff that are inspired (as we are!) to create a memorable experience for each and every bride.
Q: What makes Blush Bridal Couture unique?
A: We really pay attention to detail. I think incredible customer service is the element that we really strive for the most.
Q: To what do you owe your success?

A: At the Fashion Event this year we are hoping to see some pieces that are a little more out-of-the-box. Plunging back-lines, maybe a little bit of color!!
