Marie Crawford's Bridal Wins 2012 Wedding Industry Experts Award for Best Bridal Retailer in Maryland
Frederick, MD September 19, 2012 – Marie Crawford’s Bridal, a couture bridal shop and boutique in Frederick, Maryland providing exceptional fashions and service to women and wedding parties from suburban Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia and Pennsylvania, proudly announces it has been named the 2012 Winner Best Bridal Retailer – Frederick, 2012 Winner Best Bridal Retailer – Maryland, and 2012 Finalist Top 100 Best Bridal Retailer – Worldwide, ranking 16th out of 100. The hope of the Wedding Industry Experts Award is to unite the wedding industry by recognizing vendors who excel in their fields in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States. Instead of appointing an arbitrary panel of judges to pick winners, the Wedding Industry Experts Awards is a true people's choice Awards. Anyone can vote for the vendors they love. The results will show who is the most popular choice in each category by city, state/providence, country and internationally. A full list of the 2012 awardee can be found at http://www.weddingindustryexperts.com/awards.html
The shop carries designers that include Mori Lee, Allure, Eden and DaVinci bridal gowns, and an inventory of special occasion attire from Faviana, Pretty Maids, After Six and more. Owner Marie Earlington-Crawford, who has been in the Frederick area for a number of years, was thrilled at the announcement and noted, "We are humbled with this honor and couldn't be happier with the outcome of each category. When we received the notification that we had been nominated in the categories, we were honored and then finding out the news we won in two categories just put us over the moon with delight."
As a full-service bridal and special occasion attire source, the shop has an intimate setting without the hustle and bustle of the big stores and offers a variety of gown selections at affordable prices coupled with the pampering every bride deserves. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, Crawford also noted that throughout the month of October, the shop will host various events entitled Fashion Unscripted: Think Pink! to remember breast cancer survivors and those angels who left far too soon, with a portion of the store proceeds donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. These special events will be a part of their Wedding Wednesday series and will feature special sales, free bridal items and more. The Wedding Wednesday series will continue through the holiday season and into 2013, featuring a variety of specials, themes and opportunities for brides to obtain fabulous fashions for their weddings without blowing their budgets. Crawford went on to note, “at Marie Crawford’s Bridal, we know your wedding is the event of a lifetime. And we have one goal: providing the best beautifully made wedding gowns for brides and fashions for the entire bridal party, from each bridesmaid dress to the mother of the bride dress and flower girl dress."
