We have a long-standing relationship with Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo, a local boutique for wedding, prom, and special occasion attire. A decade after our initial redesign, owners Franco and Wendy Salerno felt it was time to refresh their website. While the previous site served them well, technological advancements and changing customer expectations called for a modern update. The old content management system’s limitations and a growing inventory of designer collections also highlighted the need for a significant revamp. The Salernos wanted a new, user-friendly platform that would capture the spirit of their original site but with enhanced functionality and aesthetics. Engaged for the website redesign on a time-and-materials basis, our goal was to get the new site up and running before the busy prom and wedding seasons to capitalize on peak customer engagement.

Darianna Bridal’s website was vast, hosting numerous pages, articles, and an extensive library of images. This complexity presented a significant challenge, with the potential to delay the redesign process. Additionally, the site’s images were too small and lacked clarity, preventing visitors from fully appreciating the boutique’s offerings. The outdated platform exacerbated these issues, offering limited capabilities for updates and making it challenging to add new designer collections vital for the boutique’s growth. In the highly competitive special occasion apparel market, there was a clear need for strategic improvements to the boutique’s online presence, particularly to enhance local visibility and secure the company’s long-term success.


Addressing Darianna Bridal’s website’s complexities and challenges required a multifaceted strategy focused on aesthetic enhancements and functional improvements. Our solutions were designed to be both timely and impactful:

  • Visual enhancements: Recognizing the importance of visual appeal, we curated and optimized 600 images from 30 designers. This effort ensured that every gown, tuxedo, and suit was showcased vividly, allowing site visitors to appreciate the details of Darianna Bridal’s collections.
  • Cohesive user experience: To maintain a cohesive user experience across the site, we standardized the design and functionality of the Tuxedos and Suits, Mothers, and Prom sections to align with the Wedding Dress pages. This uniformity provided a seamless browsing experience, reflecting the boutique’s high standards of elegance and style.
  • Engagement features: Understanding the need to engage more deeply with the boutique’s site visitors, we integrated various interactive elements. From quizzes and live Google reviews to a text messaging feature and an updated chatbot, each addition was carefully selected to enrich the user’s journey. We also introduced a color filter for tuxedos, adding a layer of convenience and customization to the attire selection process.
  • Content management flexibility: To empower Darianna Bridal with greater control over its website, we implemented a user-friendly content management system. This upgrade allows effortless updates to their product listings and news, ensuring the site remains current and reflects the boutique’s evolving offerings.
  • SEO strategy: In a competitive market, visibility is key. Our comprehensive SEO strategy aimed to boost Darianna Bridal’s local presence in a highly competitive market. We focused on fine-tuning critical SEO components such as meta descriptions and title tags, enhancing the site’s performance and reach.
Through these strategic solutions, we addressed the immediate challenges while laying a foundation for Darianna Bridal’s continued digital success and growth.

Client Feedback

The Salernos were ecstatic with the outcome, expressing their appreciation through numerous compliments and positive feedback along the way:

“I just wanted to let you know that we are LOVING the look and feel of the site. Your hard work is not going un-noticed. I just wanted to thank you!”

“I just wanted to let you know that we couldn’t be happier on how the website is turning out. Tammy and Amy have been wonderful. We think the website, with the addition of the ongoing SEO work that IQnection will be doing, will be killer.”

“LOVE LOVE this [color selection] section with the colors of the suits and tuxedos.”

Franco also expressed his appreciation in an article submitted to the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce:

“Recently, we hired IQnection to rebuild our website. Remember when we said we loved our original website that IQnection built? It served us well for about 10 years but we agreed it was time to update the look and feel. The new website is even more beautiful, and more functional. We know we have a ways to go to get the new site perfect, but we are well on our way.

For the new website, we have to thank Tammy Wilson, Amy Lewis, and Tom Robbins. And please do not let us forget Randi Lindsay for her expert work on SEO.

You are all amazing, and being a member of the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce has truly made it worth it. Thank you for what you have done for us!”
