Founded in 2008, Avenía Bridal was created specifically for those brides looking for fashion-forward yet customizable wedding gowns for their personal or religious preferences. Come to us for the couture “Avenía experience“, which consists of warm and attentive service, impeccable attention to detail, and the reputation of Artistic Director, Nancy Barrus and her design staff. Our brides trust us to help them create a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we make every effort to make them smile each time they remember their special day.

Nancy Barrus, Owner and In-house Designer, may be barely 5’0″, but don’t let her size fool you. She races back and forth between the Boutique–where her expert eye of 35+ years in the business is always appreciated–to the Design Studio, where she supervises and advises her staff of seamstresses customizing designer gowns to meet a bride’s wishes and creating one-of-a-kind gowns.

Nancy earned a B.A. degree in Design from Brigham Young University gaining bridal experience by altering and tailoring  wedding dresses in local bridal shops and then designing and creating hundreds of custom bridal gowns. Apart from sewing, Nancy loves interior decorating, gardening, and singing. As an accomplished Operatic singer (part of her emphasis in Theatre and Film), Nancy has spent quite a bit of time onstage.

Our consultants are some of the best! Not only are our bridal consultants trained to assist you in the design, selection and customization of your wedding gown, their personalities will make you feel at ease during this exciting time!
