Small Business Development Center at KCC Meet our client Wedding Belles Consignment Boutique As a young couple planning their wedding, Melanie and Casey Devore saw that the Kankakee area needed more wedding resources – from the dress to the decor and rentals. They started a linen and wedding decoration business in 2010. Then, in late 2012, they opened Wedding Belles Consignment Boutique, 368 S. Schuyler Ave. in Bradley. “We are currently the top seller locally for young girls coming from Bradley, Bourbonnais, Manteno, Peotone, Herscher, Clifton and many other schools,” Melanie said. In January 2014, Melanie and Casey accepted an offer for Wedding Belles to join with The Wedding Center. One large shop will now offer new and “once loved” and sample gowns. In June, Wedding Belles will permanently move to The Wedding Center's location at 165 E. Bethel Drive in Bourbonnais. “I believe that by being in the wedding business and the reputation we have in the community will aid us in growing The Wedding Center as a business and another great resource for brides,” Melanie said. “The current owners are equally excited to bring us in as a new point of view with fresh ideas and an updated business sense. “We would like to extend a special thank you to Ken Crite at the Small Business Development Center at KCC for his help and guidance to grow our business,” Melanie continued. “Ken was patient and helpful during the entire process and had extra resources that we would have never thought of. The SBDC not only helped with finding us a bank to finance our dream but also helped us find an accountant to assist with our business plan and Ken was there every step of the way during the application process. We are excited to see what comes next for us!”
