Getting To Know Your Handpicked Vendors | Team Bride Apparel

The Who: Sarah Tharp

The Deets: A chic online boutique carrying bridal clothing & accessories along with wedding paper goods!

At Team Bride Apparel, we are passionate about fun, fresh designs and ensuring that every bride-to-be and her team have the perfect outfit for the bachelorette party, getting ready day-of-wedding, and for those memorable wedding photographs!

The inspiration for Team Bride Apparel came from the frustration experienced trying to find high-quality, yet affordable bachelorette party, bridal party, and wedding day apparel. We strive to provide the alternative to ribbed-tank 'wife-beaters' and rhinestones that currently saturate the market.

Our mission is simple: to provide every bride and her team with their version of picture perfect.
