Anna Christine Bridal

For the Love of Bridal

By Anna Teal


It’s the day many women dream about from a young age, one of life's most special days – their wedding day.

Once a young lady has found her spouse-to-be, it’s time to select the perfect gown that accentuates all the right features. Anna Christine Ward, owner of Anna Christine Bridal in Canton, is no stranger to beholding these beautiful moments with brides in her shop who are searching for the perfect wedding dress.


Born Into Bridal

There’s no better person to entrust a bridal gown wish list to than Anna Christine. After all, she was born into the business. Her father, Bill Perrett, was a sales rep for Justin Alexander; her uncle, Mike Perrett, was a rep for Morilee; and her cousins are reps for Morilee as well.

“My dad was one of the first bridal sales reps to work with companies to bring imported gowns to the U.S. in the early 1980s. He was very well known and connected in the bridal industry,” explains Anna.

Growing up, Anna found herself captivated by beautiful dresses, sparkling jewelry, and that ever-so-special moment when a bride finds the perfect dress.


Entrepreneurial Spirit

Anna’s father’s bridal business quickly became a family affair. Before Anna graduated from Sequoyah HS, her mother, Russelyn, joined her father by handling customer-service-related matters. After graduating from Auburn University with a business degree, Anna found herself helping her father with his territory, which had grown exponentially larger than he could handle alone.

“Looking back, my extensive exposure to all things bridal built the foundation that would later serve me well when opening my own bridal business. My light-bulb moment came at a time when my career took me away from the bridal industry. At the time, I was working for a friend who had a lip balm business, and I wasn’t as happy as I wanted to be in that role. I found myself scrolling bridal gowns in my spare time, still captivated by their beauty. I realized at that moment that bridal was my passion. I had the idea to open my own bridal store,” says Anna.

After consulting with her father and husband, she decided to open Anna Christine Bridal. Anna and her family are Cherokee County natives, so it was important to select a location in Canton.

With the help of her entire family, Anna started the journey to open her store. Her husband, Kevin, was especially instrumental in building out the store and printing materials via his local print business, Sull Graphics.

“If it were not for my husband, I wouldn’t be where I am today,” says Anna.


Blissful Bridal Moments

When entering Anna Christine Bridal, guests experience an onslaught of beautiful light pink hues peppered with soft grays and neutral whites. Even more welcoming than the decor is Anna and her team’s approach to making every bride’s gown selection process as special as possible.

“We relish in the incredible tender moments that ladies have with the people they love. It’s absolutely magical. There’s nothing like it,” says Anna.

One lovely touch is every bride receives a goodie bag when purchasing a gown.

“If you’re spending over $1,000 for a wedding dress that will take some time to arrive in-store, it’s important to walk away with something to celebrate the occasion,” says Anna.

Brides are also gifted a personalized wedding cup and free goodies from other local vendors in the area.

“We have businesses that will drop off items for us to give away to brides. We love our Cherokee County community and that our local partners can be part of our bridal business,” Anna says.

“These big life moments are so memorable and deserve to be cherished,” says Anna. She realizes this now more than ever since her mom’s diagnosis with early-onset Alzheimer’s.

“My team and I love to be part of these special life moments. I’ve come to realize how important they are because life is fleeting,” explains Anna.


Still Love at First Sight After Three Years

Anna Christine Bridal serendipitously opened on Valentine’s Day 2019, and it’s now the fastest growing bridal store in the state of Georgia. Unsurprisingly, her collection features dazzling dresses from Justin Alexander, among others such as Lillian West, Morilee, and Maggie Sottero, in addition to beautiful bridal accessories to complete the look.

Anna and her team offer a wide variety of bridesmaid dresses, flower girl dresses, and fun bridal gifts.

“We work with local master seamstresses to provide alteration contacts for our brides. We suggest calling them ASAP, even if a wedding is a year out, due to the increase in demand,” explains Anna.

Anna Christine Bridal is celebrating three blissful years in business this month.

“We just completed a remodel to accommodate the growing bridal demand. We now have three fitting and viewing spaces. We can take up to three appointments at a time, and we can accommodate up to 15 appointments a day,” says Anna.

And the surge in wedding gown demand isn’t just from local brides.

“We get people from as far as California and all over the United States,” explains Anna.


Experience Anna Christine Bridal

For those looking to peruse the enchanting inventory that Anna Christine Bridal has to offer, it’s best to book an appointment online or call the store. Anna and her team prefer to keep appointments to three to four people, but for those wishing to bring more guests, they must call ahead of time.

One thing is for sure — for those seeking the perfect wedding dress, it’s likely they’ll find it at Anna Christine Bridal as well as a very special experience made memorable by the entire staff.

“I want everyone who walks into our store to feel beautiful and loved,” says Anna.

With that goal in mind, she and her team are looking forward to many more years serving their beloved brides and community.
