Build-A-Bride Huntsville is officially open in the historic Five Points district of Huntsville, Alabama! Our Huntsville bridal boutique is the third location opened by wedding dress designer Heidi Elnora from Project Runway and TLC's Bride By Design.

The Huntsville bridal shop officially opened on February 2, 2022, with our grand opening taking place on February 20, 2022. We welcomed old friends, new neighbors, Huntsville brides, and some of our beloved Huntsville wedding vendors to preview our bridal shop in Huntsville and our collection of timeless wedding dresses.

Heidi Elnora has been creating customized designer wedding dresses for brides in Alabama and across the globe for the past 16 years from her atelier in Birmingham, Alabama. After opening her second location, Build-A-Bride Auburn, she recognized a need for a high-quality bridal shop in Huntsville and set her sights on the Rocket City.

With the opening of Build-a-Bride Huntsville, brides in North Alabama can now access classic wedding dresses and a luxury bridal experience without traveling out of town. All of our wedding dresses are designed by Heidi Elnora and can be mix-and-matched, embellished, and accessorized to fit each bride's exact style and budget. Our modern minimalist wedding gowns range in price from $1,800 - 4,000 and are available in sample sizes ranging from size 6 - 22 and beyond. 

Our grand opening welcomed all to visit our new bridal shop in Huntsville and featured sweet treats from a couple of our favorite Huntsville bakeries: Edgar's Bakery and Maddie's Cookie Company. The floral bouquets by our friends at In Bloom tied in the shades of blush pink and green throughout our shop and looked absolutely gorgeous! 

Guests especially loved the Noella's Flower Truck parked outside our shop, which invited guests to build their own bouquet from a variety of colorfully fresh florals. We are so appreciative to Noella's owner Erica for making our grand opening event extra special!

Photographer Grant Benton captured beautiful photos of our shop and event, and we are thrilled to share some highlights with you below! Thank you to everyone who joined us and continues to support us--we already feel at home in Huntsville thanks to all of our neighbors, vendors, and brides we have connected with.
