Erin Cole has been styling brides for over 20 years and has both sides to the business; designer and bridal stylist.

I had the pleasure of speaking with Erin myself to get more information on her experience as well as her newest addition to the Erin Cole brand, wedding gowns.
When did Erin start designing?
20 years ago Erin launched her bridal accessory empire. Over time, Erin has created timeless pieces including bridal earrings, bracelets, hairpieces, and veils. Each piece made with Swarovski and handmade in California. Erin is not only a jewelry designer but also owned a bridal salon, Erin Cole Couture Bridal. As a bridal salon owner and jewelry designer, Erin was ready to expand her brand by designing wedding gowns.
Why did Erin decide to launch her bridal collection?
With 20 years of accessory designing as well as experience as a bridal salon owner, Erin Cole, knew she wanted to launch her own bridal gown collection. Erin Cole Couture Bridal carried designers much like Solutions Bridal including Oscar de la Renta and Monique Lhuillier. Erin has always worked in retail and bridal has always been Erin’s passion. As the owner of a bridal salon, Erin new there what was missing in the bridal market. Erin’s collection is one of a kind and even has custom change options. Brides are going to love the custom options in Erin Cole’s collection.
How does Erin relate to Solutions Bridal as a brand as well as our clients?
Because Erin also owned a bridal shop that was very much like Solutions Bridal with their luxury designers, Erin knows both sides to the industry. Erin’s bridal collection is at an identical quality and price point to other designers carried at Solutions Bridal, so our brides are going to love the fit, fabric, and price point. From a bridal salon owner’s side, Erin knows what brides are requesting as well as knows what the industry is missing from the designer’s side.
How does Erin stay motivated not only as a bridal accessory designer but also as a bridal gown designer?
With a love of everyday wear, ready to wear, and Haute couture, Erin inquires these elements into her bridal collection. Today, bridal is full of trends that were not even thought of before, so applying her love for everyday wear keeps her collections fresh and current.
What are you most excited about during your trip to Solutions Bridal?
It’s always an amazing experience when we get to meet and work closely with our designers. Working with our designers helps us as professionals because they always teach us something new, whether it is styling ideas or product knowledge. According to Erin, “I am excited to meet the Solutions Bridal staff, see the store, as well as work with brides.”
