Herndon ties the knot with opening of new bridal shop

While the COVID-19 pandemic has made wedding planning an especially turbulent affair in recent months, couples in Herndon at least have a new option for getting outfitted for their walk down the aisle.

The bridal and event planning shop Lulu’s Bridal and Global Events is holding its grand opening today (Friday) with an official ribbon-cutting at 1 p.m. The store is located in Suite 202 at 731 Elden Street, right across from Herndon’s Old Town Hall.

Founder and owner Luzette “Lulu” Njweipi has dreamed about dresses she’s wanted to design her whole life.

“Since about the age of 16 I have always wanted my outfits to be unique and standout,” Njweipi says on her website.

She started designing and making wedding dresses officially in 2019, but she was designing dresses before then.

“I have a love for love, and weddings and everything dresses,” Njeweipi. “So I’ve always wanted to have my own bridal shop.”

Lulu’s Bridal and Global Events doesn’t just make dresses, though. They also help plan events, put together accessories and decor, and do make-up.

While there are some dresses that can be bought off the rack, Njeweipi specializes in making unique gowns that fit the vision of each individual customer.

“If you have a unique style that you want, we are able to kind of work with you to bring it to life,” she said.

Information on booking consultations and images of some of the looks Lulu’s Bridal has can be found on their website. Custom pieces and designs need to be ordered with plenty of advanced notice so the designers have time to make the items.

Lulu’s will be doing a bridal show in September to showcase some of its designs. More information will posted to the store’s Instagram and Facebook pages when it becomes available.

“We’re excited about the grand opening and we hope we will be able to serve the community as a whole,” Njeweipi said.
