An Affair of the Heart wedding shop was established in 2002 by my daughter in Denver, CO the first year of her marriage. After a few months I joined her in the business in the Colorado Springs area. From there, the business grew to offer more wedding dresses, veils and invitations. Our purpose is to help engaged couples save on the cost of their wedding. We offer beautiful designer gowns that have been discontinued yet still in style for a fraction of the retail cost so you are able to save hundreds of dollars on your wedding gown. Quality veils by Illusions bridal, AA Bridal, Ansonia and more are priced at great prices. Invitations are 15% off your total order when ordered on-line or in the shop. Call now for your personal appointment.

My Best to You,

Patricia (owner of An Affair of the Heart)

Patsy was amazing! We shopped our options, all over Denver and finally David's Bridal walking away with some experience and a few extremely colorful customer service anecdotes but no dress. Patsy was extremely flexible, fitting us in a moments notice. She took care of us with kindness, care and no rush. One and a half hours later she set aside two dresses for me until my mom could come back and help me make the final choice. The dress was a steal, almost exactly what I wanted topped off by a recommendation to an expert seamstress to make it just so. I recommend her constantly now. Thank you, Patsy!

Patricia was the sweetest lady ever! She had a great selection of dresses and sizes. And the prices are extremely affordable! Saved so much money on my dress that I had money to rent a photo booth for the wedding!! Very patient with us as we were looking around. She even referred us to a site to get our invitations, she had some jewelry, bridesmaid dresses, beautiful veils, and mother of the bride dresses. She did not pressure me to buy any dress, very relaxing environment to try dresses on and she did not double book her self so you get the satisfaction of having her there with you the full time to assist with the dress unlike bridal stores. Thanks for having my dream dress at a really great price!
