Hi Friends! I'm Tanya...

Love Tanya's founder and designer, meaning I've poured my heart and soul into every aspect of my business in order to provide you with the most beautiful dresses for your wedding. Love Tanya is my fresh, feminine take on bridesmaid dresses and separates for truly wear-again styles that makes it easy for busy bridal parties to shop online and sample in the convenience of their own home (great for out of town bridesmaids!).

How I got started in the wedding industry

My family started a bridesmaid dress company when I was only 7 years old. Growing up in the industry, I was exposed to the design process, production, photoshoots and even attending bridal market in New York! My high school was across the street from their office so I spent most afternoons hanging out in each department. I even worked in the shipping department for a little while! Even with all that exposure, I never in a million years thought I would have my own bridesmaid collection one day. I was working in the finance industry in New York City, feeling uninspired and wanting a change. Several years ago I decided to move back to Dallas to work with my family. 

My best friend got engaged and asked where her bridesmaids (who live all over the U.S.) could try on our dresses. It turns out this was a much harder task than I realized. I noticed there were dresses from previous trade shows sitting in the warehouse and thought "wouldn't it be great if I could put these dresses to good use and send them around to my friend's bridesmaids?" That's when the Try-At-Home program was born.  So last year, I decided to launch my own bridesmaid collection and change the way bridesmaids shop!

Why I adore weddings

Weddings are great because it's one of the few times in your life that everyone you love will be together to see the amazing life you've created for yourself. It's truly a celebration of love and life.
