All Kinds of Dresses for All Kinds of Brides


Co-owner Megan Williams.


Trousseau Bridal offers veils, shoes and accessories in addition to couture bridal gowns as well as a one-on-one experience with several bridal stylists for help on providing the bride with the perfect dress. Co-owner Megan Williams was inspired to open the shop after seeing there was little opportunity for women of all sizes to enter a salon and try on gowns. Coupled with friends’ anxiety about dress shopping, Williams wanted to encourage a comfortable atmosphere where women would feel satisfied with the experience and their bodies. It’s intimate, it’s comfortable, and there’s no waiting to stand by a mirror or waiting to try on a gown another bride had on,” says Williams. “Whether you’re a size 0 or 22, you don’t have to worry about being on display either.”


The boutique offers all kinds of gowns by designers exclusive to Columbus from Sareh Nouri to Rivini to Palazzo by Jane White. They are currently in the process of picking up two additional lines that will be affordable for more brides. Williams encourages women to feel confident about their choice no matter what. “You should love the dress you choose, and you should definitely feel confident, whether you’re a romantic, modern or a classic kind of bride,” explains Williams. “Also ignore bridal gown sizing during the shopping experience.”


Williams is a big proponent of confidence in women no matter their dress size. She feels this is what gives Trousseau Bridal an edge. “Whether you’re a size 0 or 22, you don’t have to worry about being on display,” she says. “We know a lot of brides have anxiety over trying on gowns, especially couture.”


Williams relishes her job in the wedding industry because of the satisfaction she receives from being part of one of the happiest times a woman can go through. “We help a vision come to fruition—from the bride who dreamt of ‘that day,’ her whole life to the more mature bride walking down the aisle maybe a second time,” explains Williams.


The biggest advice she offers for future brides on their wedding days is to delegate. It is okay to hand out wedding day duties as well as wait to take care of the small things. “No wedding is perfect,” she says. “Once you come to grips with that, everything will turn out beautifully.” Another piece of advice she offers is for brides to be practical. “If you’re wearing a lace gown, a crystal bracelet is going to snag,” says Williams. “Heavy earrings are not going to stay on all night, so budget for two pairs. Finally, accessories are the icing. They should help tell the story of your wedding and accent the look and your beauty.”


Williams is looking forward to the future by hoping to continue her success by helping brides find the perfect Trousseau as well as expanding their work with different designers. They also hope to continue establishing their network within the bridal community and the local area as well.


“We get to be part of one of the happiest times a woman can go through. Seeing the families light up and be part of the experience is also a special moment.”


Trousseau Bridal is located at 5 N Liberty Street Powell, Ohio
