What great jobs we have! What could be more fun than working with families during one of the happiest times of their lives?! We could not have dreamed for more when as lifelong best friends and business partners we started StarDust Celebrations in September 1999, as a privately owned wedding planning firm and full-service wedding department store. Our modest beginning started in a lovely turn-of-the-century Victorian cottage in Uptown Dallas. Our vision was to not only become a one-stop shopping experience for brides and their families, but to also become known as a company that provided the prettiest wedding attire, with the best bridal salon services and the most respected wedding planning throughout Dallas and Fort Worth.
By 2000, expansion was necessary; a second location was opened in Plano, and the Dallas salon was renamed LuLu’s Bridal Boutique. The name “LuLu’s” was selected to honor our mothers, who are both forever with us in spirit. Jenny’s mom’s name was Lucille; my mom’s name was Ludie. The darling color palette of yellow and blue on the exterior of LuLu’s is a nod to our moms’ favorite colors. In 2005 we built an 18,000 square foot wedding department store including a beautiful bridal salon. In 2010, we opened an outlet store, A Bridal Closet, to offer overstocks, samples and discontinued gowns at a fraction of retail cost. Our three locations provide very distinctive experiences as each offers different gowns and accessories at different price ranges in three unique settings.
Throughout the journey, our business remains focused on brides and their families. We believe that a wedding is not just about selecting a perfect gown, but also about helping a family with any and sometimes all of the details surrounding the wedding. At all three of our salons, the staff of well trained individuals are dedicated to helping the bride and her family have fun and avoid stress throughout the wedding planning process. Our staff has been educated in all things bridal and keeps up with the nuances of the modern wedding, particularly when it comes to “styling” your wedding overall. They have pledged to serve our clients with excellence, and you are welcome to ask any question. Even if they don’t immediately know the answer, they will find out for you!
Jenny and I invite your comments and suggestions to make our business your most treasured resource in planning your wedding. We wish you the very best in your new married life.

Little LuLu is our cute pug, who just waits to run out and greet our guests. Jake is rarely seen since his manners are not yet honed. It is doubtful unless you request a meeting that you’ll get to visit with this hound dog. As you can see, we love our pets.
