Ultimate Bride has been a landmark on Oak Street for over 30 years and continues to made headway in terms of bridal couture, thanks to Elena Grapsas, our buyer! With over 20 years in the industry, Elena has a vast knowledge of not only bridal but the fashion world!
In 1992, Elena started doing paperwork in the office of Ultimate Bride but it wasn’t long before her predecessor took her under her wing! Elena quickly went from the office, to a manager, then eventually buying the store in 1997!
Since then, she maintains strong relationships with our exclusive designers, such as Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera, never missing a bridal market! Elena has an eye for what’s trending in bridal but knows how to keep things classic!
She was recently featured in an article in Brides Magazine so take a look below for some of her excellent advice on bridal gown shopping!
