Hello and Welcome to Weddings by Design. Please allow me a moment to tell you a little about myself.
I was born and raised in West Des Moines, IA. I love this city and can’t imagine living anywhere else. My Mother and I bought this store in 2003 and both of my sisters work with me. Family is the number one thing in my life.
Let me introduce you to my family. My husband Jeff and I just celebrated our 10 year anniversary with all of our family and friends in Miami, FL at the hotel where were married. My son Ashton is 8 years old. He has a sweet soul and a great imagination. He is really into sports and very active. My daughter Dylan is 6 years old and keeps me on my toes. She is full of life and energy and is always making me laugh. Nya, our white Labrador Retreiver, joined our family in July when she was 6 weeks old. I forgot how much work a puppy can be but the companionship is so worth it.
My children keep me busy with basketball, soccer, gymnastics, football, swim lessons, softball , etc. My husband loves to golf and I join him every chance I get. We are huge Iowa State fans and attend every game we can.
Weddings by Design has a private collection of weddings gowns called “Dylan Rae Collection” named after my daughter. Click HERE for more information about these beautiful gowns.
I feel so fortunate to be able to help a bride prepare for the most important day in her life. I love my job and look forward to coming to work every day. I have met so many great people and friends. I am so passionate about the bridal industry and proud to be a small business owner in West Des Moines.
I look forward to meeting you soon, be sure to ask for me when you come to visit Weddings by Design so I can come say hello! – Melissa Alger
