Princess For a Day

We believe that finding your dream dress is a moment in time that you will never forget. It isn’t to be rushed. It is to be savored, shared and celebrated.

And while no experience at Ava Laurenne Bride is anything less than extraordinary, we will always be searching for new ways to create and capture every amazing moment for Brides as they find their gown.
Our “Princess for a Day” is our latest creation, for those Brides that want to celebrate this magical moment all day long! It is an experience that shows you how much we believe that your moment is a forever-moment, and that the journey to find your gown doesn’t end when you say “yes” - it begins!

We are already in love with this concept, and And now, in partnership with even more incredible local small businesses, we have upgraded some aspects of this amazing appointment again! And we can't wait to share it with you!!

All our Princess-for-a-Day brides start off at a local eatery (Morgan got to experience high tea at The Freedom Society!) ( for her breakfast and drink (with discounts for any of her party that want to join!) 

The trolley experience option (pictured) with our beloved Fredericksburg Trolley will be available again in the coming months, but for now, (and we are excited to tell you!),  that the princess and her party will be transported to Ava Laurenne in an amazing limo from the fabulous Fredericksburg Limo!

Fredericksburg Limo

The Bride’s 3 hour gown experience in our beautiful 1920’s era building, begins with an oppulent charcuterie board, (like this one by the talented creator, Amazing Graze ( ) served from inside our sandstone Vault, followed by the Princess’ choice of beverage.

Elegant custom desserts are created by one of our “Magic Maker” bakers, based on the Bride’s personal style, like these by the amazing Wholly Sweet Bakeshop (

And an absolutely magical custom projection o the back wall of the vault by Luminuss Productions! (

And while the Bride’s party enjoys the show of all of the gowns she will try on, they can enjoy personalized, gourmet popcorn from our friends at The Popcorn Bag VA (

And then, the Bride finds her dream gown,

....and now it's not the end of the day! It's when the next level celebration begins! You get another limo ride back to where your day began, and to your cars, so you can all go out to King George VA to The Estate at White Hall Vineyard together where the bride will get a wine tasting and supper from the fab food truck!! And the rest of the party enjoys a discounted rate for both too! Enjoy celebrating, dancing, and eating at this gorgeous Virginia Farm Winery! We couldn't think of a better way to end this epic day!

And all of this is captured by one or more of our ALB Photography Partners!! Like these Images by the talented "Images By Geneva" ( of our gorgeous real Princess Bride, Morgan!)

You will love being able to have these images and enjoy the moments that happen during your special day for years to come!
