After dreaming about owning a bridal store since childhood, Denice followed her passion and opened Grand Bridal in March of 2021.
Denice began sewing at age 8 by constructing her first dirndl skirt as a 4-H project. During the summer months she would take sewing lessons and increase her skill set all the way to sewing and modeling her prom dress to tailoring a wool coat.
Denice capped off her competitive sewing and modeling career by winning a Bernina sewing machine in the Make It Yourself with Wool Contest with a wool coat.
Through her college years in Ames, Denice worked in alterations at the bridal store gaining a vast skill set which she has used for the past 25 years. She put her dream on hold to raise her family of 4 children with her husband on his family farm. While her children are growing up fast, Denice has decided it is time to share her talents with Northwest Iowa and is thrilled to bring Grand Bridal to downtown Spencer!
