Lawton Ginn Yon wants every woman to experience their dream wedding day within a budget they can afford. That is where the concept for Magnolia Bride was born.

Featuring the most elegant, well-known, and high-end designers in the bridal industry, this bridal haven is truly made for every budget.

“With dresses right from the runway, our brides have the opportunity to find their perfect gown and take it home that very same day,” says Lawton Ginn Yon.

Although the cost is less than you would expect from this stunning, upscale boutique the quality is exceptional. “Weddings are expensive, and our ability to alleviate the sticker-shock associated with the dress, without sacrificing style or quality, is a blessing,” says Lawton Ginn Yon.
