What began in 2002 as a dream to open a store called “Everything But The Dress”, Marcy Hudson began a career in the bridal industry. Marcy grew up on a farm in Ashtabula County and spent her summers raising beef cattle and sewing for 4-H projects. Taught by her mother, a lifelong seamstress, Marcy had been sewing ever since her legs were long enough to reach the sewing machine peddle. After high school, Marcy put herself through college at The Ohio Sate University. She waitressed, bartended, and eventually managed restaurants. Her dream was to open her own someday. But that dream changed when she was planning her own wedding. Instead of a restaurant, she opted to open a store that sold all the accessories you need at the wedding. She had grown away from her sewing roots and quite frankly, didn’t want much to do with dresses. However, when the landlord of her current building approached her and ask her to sell wedding gowns instead of accessories, it seemed like a natural fit.
Entering year number 15, it has seemed to be the right fit. Marcy, alongside her daughters and in incredible management team run Expressions Bridal. In 2017, the name was changed to CLE bride in an effort to embrace all that is CLE and Marcy and her daughter’s love for this great city. Feeling more and more blessed every year, Marcy and her girls hope they can help you find the perfect gown.
