Amanda Alger

Owner & Stylist

Amanda was born and raised in the bridal fashion world! Her parents, Fred and Karen, owned and operated a successful bridal retail operation in the Reading area in the early 90s, where Amanda spent most of her childhood. From a young age, Amanda loved “helping” brides pick out gowns and accessories in her parents’ store.

Fast forward a few (or a lot) of years, to the present day – Amanda currently works as an Account Executive for one of the bridal industry’s leading wedding gown designers, Paloma Blanca! She gets to work with some of the top bridal stores (just like Dressed in Love) across the country, assisting them with selecting sample gowns from Paloma Blanca for their stores. That’s when she had an idea – What if she could take the best parts of all of her favorite bridal shops, and create the ultimate wedding dress shopping experience for brides right here in Reading, PA?!

The idea for Dressed in Love came about it 2016, when she started compiling thoughts and ideas, but was waiting patiently for the right location. She was thrilled to find the perfect “home” for her dream in the heart of downtown West Reading. Amanda can’t wait to share her wealth of knowledge for bridal fashion and the wedding industry with her Dressed in Love brides!

Kyle Harder

Stylist

Kyle is our new stylist who relocated from NYC to start a family in a more close-knit environment. After a decade’s worth of hustle and bustle, working as a Commercial and Editorial costume designer and wardrobe stylist it was time to get back to her roots. While attending the Fashion Institute of Technology as a Design major, one of Kyle’s earliest internships was with Kleinfeld Bridal, where she was able to rotate through each department and gain a greater understanding and appreciation for the bridal industry. Here, she learned the magic of just how special the day you find your dress is.

In the years that followed Kyle continued her education by attending The Makeup For Ever Academy Master Program and Cosmetology school to earn her license as a makeup artist and hairstylist. With a creative eye for silhouette, color, and design Kyle launched her Bridal makeup company, the Makeup Alliance, and now with hundreds of weddings under her belt, including the experience of her own wedding day magic, she hopes to deliver that same special feeling of excitement to each of our DIL soon to be Brides as we find the perfect dress for you!

Katie Sutton

Social Media Manager

Katie has been in the bridal world for over a decade – designing invitations and other wedding stationary for brides-to-be! Not only is she our preferred Wedding Invitation Designer (through her business Creations by KK), Katie is also our Marketing & Social Media Manager. Katie has been in this field for just as long as she has been in the bridal industry. She graduated from Temple University with a degree in Advertising, and has been in love with all things design ever since. She has been part of Dressed in Love since its fruition back in 2019.

Katie is the brains behind our social media posts, events, promotional materials and more! She works a lot behind the scenes, rather than up in front of the brides when they come into our suite. If you see something online relating to our store, it is because of Katie! She is passionate about the DIL brand, and knows the ins and outs of what makes our business successful. She has an eye for what looks good, what is stylish, what sells and how to make brides happy!

When Katie is not indulging in all things marketing, you can find her planning her upcoming wedding or hanging out with her fiance and puppy. Her favorite pastimes include shopping… and napping!

Customer Feedback

We can sit here and tell you how great we are, but we’ll let our LOVELY brides tell you for themselves. We LOVE our brides and it shows!

Amanda was amazing! At the start of my appointment, she sat me down, asked about me and my fiancé, our venue, plans for the wedding, and what I envisioned for my dress. She told me she had a couple of dresses that came to mind and the first dress I tried on was the one I fell in love with! (And then we popped the champagne!) Amanda was so personable, her love and knowledge for wedding gowns really showed. Not to mention, her boutique is beautiful with the floral wall and cutest little details. My mom, sister, and I had the best experience. I highly recommend checking out her bridal boutique, you will not be disappointed!

Sommer Wike

I had the perfect bridal experience at Dressed In Love. The shop was beautiful and clean. Amanda was knowledgeable, sweet, and most importantly, honest. She made me feel comfortable and beautiful from the beginning to the end of my appointment. I would highly recommend Dressed In Love to any new bride!
