Wedding gowns galore

From page D9 | February 03, 2012 |

Take a drive down Main Street in Placerville and there’s no chance you will miss the Renfro’s display window. The most beautiful wedding gowns overlooking the sidewalk in historic Hangtown are the same gowns so many brides spent their childhood dreaming of.

In 1978, owner Margaret Renfro and her family moved from England to Missouri where she started her first bridal shop. After 11 years of a very successful business, her husband decided to relocate to El Dorado County.

She once again decided to get back into the bridal business and in 1987 opened Renfro’s.

Despite having a small space to work with, the atmosphere and selection Renfro’s, 414 Main St., has to offer is anything but lacking. Every year, several hundred brides come to Renfro’s in search of their dream dress … and most find it.

The store has around 300 dresses. Dresses range in price from $198 and up.

The shop carries Jaclyn’s Bridal, Christina Wu and many more designers.

Renfro and her team attend the New York Bridal Show and also travel to Chicago to ensure the best selection for their brides.

Not only do local brides frequent Renfro’s, the shop sees customers from San Francisco, Reno, San Jose and other places around California. The brides love the selection of gowns and they enjoy the ambiance of the store and customer service offered by Renfro and her highly skilled team.

Along with everything the bride needs to complete her own ensemble (veil, shoes, etc.) Renfro’s also carries outfits for the bridesmaids, something stunning for the mother of the bride and can also take care of the tuxedos for the groom and groomsmen.

Renfro’s passion for her bridal shop translates to her excellent customer service and attention to detail.

“I never feel like I’m coming to work because I enjoy it so much,” she said. “My customers are fun and I love dealing in their celebrations.”

Brides interested in trying on those beautiful gowns can make an appointment by calling 530-626-6919. Appointments are available on Saturdays only.

Brides are also encouraged to check Renfro’s out on Yelp to see what other brides have to say about the excellent selection and customer service.
