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)

Patty at An Affair of the Heart provided the most incredible customer service I've experienced during the wedding planning process. I'm pretty sure she works 24/7. I'm located at a different time zone but she always immediately responded to all my emails and phone calls.

What an amazing experience!!! I felt very comfortable around Patty and did not feel pressured into anything. After looking at so many other dresses and feeling like I could not/will not find my dress, I found THE dress. The one i now love and did not want to take off! She has a kind of warmth to her that you will not find going to an ordinary bridal shop. She is also very understanding and patient. My family and I asked her an overwhelming amount of questions (some even unrelated to the matter at hand), but she managed to stay on track with us and answer all of them. She has a big variety of dresses, veils, and other wedding essentials. They are all tremendously discounted and of HIGH quality. I love my dress, veil, and favors I purchased from her so far and plan on returning to purchase my invitations and more!! Thank you so much once again Patty!!

Such a great experience, Patricia was so friendly and helpful and I am so glad I purchased my dress from a little shop like this rather than the big chains. So much more personal.

I was very pleased with the service we had while I was trying on dresses. What I loved the most was I did not feel pressured into settling for just some dress. I went to another store after and was so overwhelmed and unhappy. I came back and bought the dress of my dreams!

The selection was a lot more than I expected and I was able to look through the dresses she had.

Thank you SO SO much for a wonderful memory.

Patty was great! She was very friendly and extremely professional - very refreshing. Don't be swayed because she doesn't sell out of an office!!! It was so easy to make an appointment with her, and the dress selection she has is equal to the other boutiques I had been too. Not only that, but the quality of the dresses are fantasitic and about half the price as they would be elsewhere. I would and did recommend her to every woman I know that is in the position to get a fabulous wedding dress!!!
