Melissa Bucci- Owner

Hi everyone, I'm Melissa, owner of Bucci's Bridal. I opened my store four years ago and to say it has evolved over the years is an understatement! My intentions were to offer an experience to brides that would exceed all expectations through a curated collection of wedding dresses that were unique, yet affordable while receiving personalized customer service of a high-end boutique.

I am constantly looking for new ways to improve the bridal dress shopping experience and become the leader in the bridal boutique standard. I believe in keeping it simple, easy, and relaxed. I am pleased to offer our Bucci's Brides a fun and stress-free experience that ends with her confidently saying "yes" to her dress.

When I'm not at the store, you'll find me working on all of our social media so you can see what we are doing around here! Outside of all things bridal, I like to go to the gym (usually wearing a Piece of Cake! 5K t-shirt), wander the aisles of Costco, read, or watch 90's TV shows on Netflix. I usually always have a giant bottle of water nearby, a forgotten cup of cold coffee and sometimes kombucha tea. My family means the world to me and I'm always spoiled with Italian food when I visit my Nonno and Nonna. 

Ask me about: our exclusive dress lines, where I see the bridal industry in the future, and why I chose Pewaukee for our location


Maggie- Store Manager

Hi I'm Maggie. I specialize in wedding dress selection. Give me your list of "must-have's" and style of wedding, and I will help you pick out your perfect dress efficiently. I believe in the "less is more" lifestyle, even though my fashion sense tends to be a little extra most days. ;)  Finding your dress is like falling in love; when it happens, it's time to stop looking for something better. That's why I've had my dream wedding dress picked out since Fall of 2016. Yes, I'm not kidding!

At any given moment you can find me with a coffee in my hand, scrolling through Instagram, watching a James Charles makeup tutorial or Clevver Style videos on YouTube, and probably shopping online. My go-to restaurant of choice is Bel Air Cantina, though I'm always down for eating sushi. My signature look is a white sweater, skinny jeans, tan boots or booties, and pearl earrings. (Bonus points if I can incorporate a bow into my outfit.) My favorite show to watch, hands down, has to be Parks & Recreation. If you don't like that show, you're lying.

Ask me about: creating your perfect dress with the Lis Simon collection, mistakes brides make while shopping, or how I got into the bridal biz.


Krista- Stylist

Hi, I'm Krista. I've been working in the wedding biz for over six years, as a wedding planner and a bridal stylist. My favorite part about styling a bride is experiencing the moment when she realizes she has found her dream wedding dress. I'd be lying if I said I have never shed a tear along with the rest of the group. My personal bridal look would be super simple and classic with a touch of sparkle. I'd love to hear about your love story and all of the details you have planned for your special day.

I love all things girly and I find a way to wear pink almost every day. A classic Krista look would be my hair in a bun and a polished french manicure. My favorite things to shop for are crafts, decor, and organizing. Most of my free time these days is spent decorating my new house. If you're trying to make plans with me in the summer, don't count on it, because I'm busy planning my clients' weddings. #tooblessedtobestressed

Janelle- Stylist

Hey there! I’m Janelle and I most recently got my feet wet in the bridal biz and have not turned back. I have always sought creative outlets in my life and I’m so thankful I stumbled upon this field. Being able to create an experience and exact look that a bride has dreamt of leading up to her saying yes moment has become my primary desire and goal.

When I’m not at the store, you can either find me eating Mexican food somewhere, running, or binging Friends for the 17th time. (I don’t love Chandler, you do.) My siblings are my absolute best friends and favorite people in the world and couldn’t imagine living my life without them. My go-to outfit on the daily is yoga pants, a sweatshirt and a pair of kicks. If it was socially acceptable, I would bring my heated blanket with me everywhere. I also wouldn’t be here today without my better half, my dog Milo. Most of my free time lately has been used to write a personal piece on the side.
