About Us

You may have seen us on the new hit TLC series, ‘I Found the Gown’. It’s hard to believe that when my husband and I started VOWS over 2 decades ago, that our business would expand far beyond the Boston area and touch so many brides from across the country and even around the world!

People always ask us how we came up with the idea of VOWS…

Well, I had always wanted to wear a designer gown for my own wedding but unfortunately Rick and I didn’t have a designer budget. Some of you already know how Rick likes to stick with a budget so needless to say, I didn’t wear a designer dress. Rick however, has always been very entrepreneurial and he saw that there was something missing in the wedding industry. We decided to to do something about it and six months later we opened our designer bridal outlet store offering designer wedding gowns to Boston brides on a budget…and that’s how VOWS was born.

VOWS was the first bridal outlet in the country to offer high-end designer wedding gown samples and overstocks from famous designers like Vera Wang, Reem Acra, Amsale, Monique Lhuillier, Jenny Packham, Oscar de la Renta, Lazaro, Marchesa, Badgley Mischka Paloma Blanca, and many more. All of these can be viewed on our award winning website, bridepower.com.

Over the years, VOWS has received many accolades including the coveted Best of Boston award from Boston Magazine for eight years running

In 2005, we launched our own bridal line called Liv Harris Designs named after our two kids, Olivia Rose and Adam Harris. These gowns are made from luxurious silks and exquisite laces. They come in all sizes and are offered at extremely reasonable prices.

We are conveniently located in Watertown, MA just 8 miles outside of Boston and Logan International Airport and have lots of parking! Tune in to TLC’s, “I Found the Gown” to learn more about our store.

Happy shopping and hope to see you soon!
