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)

I first made an appointment with Patricia to see and try on dresses when I first got engaged. Patricia welcomed me to try on dresses with her even though I wasn’t quite ready to purchase a dress, I just wanted to have fun and try on wedding gowns. She was so sweet and knew a lot about the designer gowns I was trying on.

Almost one-year later, I was finally ready to purchase my wedding dress. I went to David’s Bridal and Danelle's Bridal, both low quality dresses, especially for the price, and not a great experience. I went back to Patricia and I was welcomed with a smile and her memory of what dresses I loved one-year ago was amazing, she knew exactly what looked good on my and I loved. Her inventory is incredible, she carries so many jaw-dropping designer gowns for a tearfully pleasant price. It was hard to pick just one dress, as many of her gowns we “the one”! After her patiently and pleasantly putting the same dresses on me again and again so I could compare, I finally purchased an Enzoani Gown for a MASSIVE discount compared to what the designer regularly charged.

I had so much fun with Patricia, her wisdom, patience, personality, inventory and knowledge made for an outstanding experience. I highly recommend An Affair of the Heart.

I wanted an elegant dress for my granddaughter's wedding. The majority of dresses for this special occasion are not appropriate for an 82 year old grandmother. A description of a silky suit dress on An Affair of the Heart site caught my attention. I called and spoke to Patricia Roth, owner. Patricia is very professional and cheerfully answered my questions. She invited me to come in and try the dress on. Since I live in New Jersey, that was not an option. Patricia gave me a detailed description of the dress and jacket, fabric and beading. My main concern was the length of the jacket sleeve which Patricia measured. I purchased the dress (very good price) and am thrilled with the style and fit. Thank you, Patricia.

Patty Roth was amazing! I had contacted her at a spur of the moment, because one of my bridesmaid told me her niece had just purchased her gown from An Affair of the Heart and it was very affordable. So we found her contact number and I made a call since we were in the area and Patty graciously agreed to let us come and try on and look at her gowns. 15 mins later we were at her location and she pulled many gowns for me to try on. I found one I really liked, but had an appointment later that afternoon with another bridal store, so I wanted to wait and see what I found there. Needless to say I found nice gowns, but the customer service was awful. We decided to leave and I wanted to try on the gown again at An Affair of the Heart one last time, so I called Patty again and once again, she let us all (4 of us) come back and try on the gowns. It was late in the evening, but she was more than helpful and didn't mind that we were keeping her. She was wonderful! I am so blessed to have found my gown and I'm so glad she was so gracious with her store hours! Can't wait for my wedding day!! Nickki

Affair of the Heart provided the perfect wedding dress shopping experience. She was attentive to my desires, and I felt absolutely no pressure to make a decision or buy that day (though I did any way!) She let me take all the time I needed and try on all the dresses I wanted as many times as I wanted. A very personal and professional interaction to ensure that I found the dress that was right for me. Thank you so much! I can't look at my dress without glowing inside :) ALSO, GREAT PRICES!

I had been looking all over for the perfect wedding dress at an affordable price. I felt I was never going to find the dress, until I went to Affair of the Heart. I was a little bit iffy about going to a small place at someone's home address, but when I got inside I was AMAZED at all the dresses! She had more desirable dresses in that one room than I had seen in the past 3 shops I had been to. Also, there's no beating the price! I definitely recommend Affair of the Heart.
