Engage Ida Lou as your mobile dressing suite! Our perfectly appointed vintage Airstream provides a glamorous and private location for hair, makeup, and dress prep.

PREP FOR YOUR WEDDING IN STYLE AND ON-THE-GO If you get married at a church, you’ll have plenty of spaces to prepare. However, many couples are choosing nontraditional venues for their wedding ceremonies, such as gardens, farms, lakes, and beaches. While these may offer a unique backdrop for your nuptials, they also don’t typically come with a big room for you and your party to get ready. Ida Lou Weddings provides a relaxing space for brides to get ready at any venue with their unique, vintage Airstream that has been fully outfitted with everything they need – gown racks, velvet seating, a full-length mirror, surfaces for accessories, and more. “Ida Lou marries the concept of providing specialized services in a ‘go anywhere’ place,” says owner Ashley L. Morra. “The mobile dressing room allows the bride to prepare for her wedding with an experienced bridal

consultant and a private, accessorized dressing room.” Morra explains that the concept for her business arose out of her experience as a bridal consultant and her love for helping brides find the perfect dress. Over time, she had brides say they wish she could also help them prep for the wedding since she helped them select her dress. And so her business was born. Morra combines her love of fashion with skills such as being able to take accurate measurements, properly press and prepare a gown and interacting with family and friends to manage potentially stressful dynamics to help make the preparation process easier for brides. The bridal party is greeted with a champagne toast, and stylists press and prepare the gowns while the bridal party gets ready and snacks on a pre-selected menu. wm 2017
