After managing the iconic Suky Rosan bridal salon (under the iconic Suky Rosan herself) for 25 years, Pattie Lamantia purchased the Wedding Shoppe in Wayne’s Eagle Village Shops in 2005, bringing her illustrious career in Philly’s bridal biz to three decades-plus. (Safe to say, she knows a thing or two about helping a bride find the dress of her dreams.)

Here, a snapshot of what she’s into right now …

Favorite bridal designer right now Naeem Khan—loving the new bling-yet-sophisticated look.

Favorite color for a summer bridesmaid dress Pink! It looks great on all skin tones.


Favorite hair adornment for a bride Jeweled hair combs.

Favorite nearby spot for brides and their entourage to grab lunch after a shopping trip or fitting Silver Spoon right here in Eagle Village Shops—or, if you want to have a drink to celebrate, White Dog Cafe.

Favorite part of your job Making a personal connection with both the bride and her family.
