Wedding season is ramping up, which means big business for a decades-old family business working to dress brides and anyone planning a formal event.

Bridal Elegance not only carries gowns for brides, bridesmaids and moms but also accessories.

Formal and cocktail dresses are always coming in for any dressy event.

Current owner Chris Wells said the business started with her mom, Mary Bello, back in 1981.

"We never sold our first gown until after Christmas," said Wells. "My dad looked at my mom and I and said, 'I think you're in the wrong business,' because we sold nothing for two months. The day after Christmas, we got busy, and we've never looked back since then."

"They go above and beyond," said Catelynn Batts, abride-to-be from Harborcreek. "[It's] clearly not what I was expecting, and they just surpassed my expectations by like a mile."

Cuffs Tuxedo is located within Bridal Elegance. It services bridal parties and also sells retail suits.

Online services for both Cuffs Tuxedo and Bridal Elegance are available.
