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
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.
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

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.
Ask me about: my favorite dress designer, how to match veils and hairpieces, why I started at Bucci's
Do not be surprised to fall in love with a dress right away, it happens all the time (and usually the first dress!). We ask you come prepared by bringing the most important person during this experience, whether it's your mom or someone else. Also be financially prepared as we have incentives for your first appointment.
After your schedule your appointment online, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to our website, so you can browse our designers online.
You will receive a confirmation text before your appointment, so our bridal stylist team can learn more about your personal style and hand pick wedding dresses for you. This is a good opportunity to share any pictures or specific details with us.
We suggest bringing no more than 3 people to your appointment, since we are a smaller boutique and space is limited. We can always set up another appointment to show people the dress you have chosen.
No need to bring heels, because we have a pedestal for you to stand on in front of the mirror.
Bring either a strapless and/or nude bra for trying on dresses. Keep in mind to wear neutral underwear. A hair tie can be helpful for trying on veils and hairpieces.
Please refrain from wearing self tanner or heavy makeup to keep our dresses in pristine condition.
When you arrive your bridal stylist will have pre-selected wedding dresses based off of your style and price range, so you can begin trying on dresses immediately and make the most of your appointment.
Your bridal stylist will observe what you are loving about the dresses you try on and will suggest similar styles until you find your dress!
Yes, it is that easy! You can expect to find THE dress with us in your first appointment.
Be prepared to say “YES!” same day to receive your FREE bridal accessory (or two) to compliment your wedding dress.
**Not ready to choose between your favorites? No problem! With a small deposit in your first appointment, you will still receive your free accessory upon making your final decision.
We recommend a bride orders her dress at least 8 months before the wedding to feel comfortable. Some dresses can take up to 6 months to come in depending on how much handwork goes into making it since everything is made to order. Many brides purchase their dress a year ahead of time, just to make wedding planning easier, since the focus and theme is around YOU!
Plus we want to make sure there is enough time for alterations once the dress arrives, which we recommend starting two months before the wedding to cover at least a few fittings with your bridal seamstress.
Our dresses range from $1000-$2000, but the average is $1500. We also carry some exclusive designers above $2000.
We carry sizes 8-26, with many being a 12 (think street size 6-8). How a dress fits depends on the manufacturer and their size chart, which may run smaller or true to size.
Yes we do, as long as it allows a bridal stylist to stay on track with the appointment so the bride receives full attention for any questions and options. We are also happy to take a group picture once the bride finds her dream dress!
Yes, we have two private dressing rooms with comfortable guest seating areas (up to 3 guests per bride) to make your experience personalized with a bridal stylist to guide you along the way. Weekends are our busiest time so we ask you schedule your appointment at least one to two weeks in advance.
Yes we do! All special orders come to the store for delivery and upon confirming your order is complete, we can ship a dress anywhere in the US.
Bucci’s Bridal orders your wedding dress to your closest size as possible, according to the dress manufacturer’s size chart. Almost always a bride will need some alterations to make the dress fit as best as possible.
We do not do in house alterations, but we have a list of highly recommended bridal seamstresses! We also encourage the first fitting be made before picking up the gown to avoid any delays before the wedding.
Once a wedding dress is special ordered or sold off the rack it is yours. Dresses sold off the rack are a final sale, but if you choose to not take your special order dress, you will lose your deposit since we cannot return dresses back to the manufacturer.
No we only carry wedding dresses and bridal accessories. With being a boutique, we want to focus all of our attention on our brides and their guests to keep our atmosphere comfortable and intimate.
