One of America’s oldest bridal stores, Becker’s Bridal in Fowler, MI, wrote to the Bulk Bookstore team about a beloved book close to their hearts -- 'The Magic Room' by Jeffrey Zaslow. Based in the very real Magic Room within the Becker’s salon, Zaslow’s novel is the ideal gift for each and every bride that passes through their doors in search of the wedding dress of her dreams.
Since 1934, business has been booming for Becker’s Bridal! This small-town store has a larger than life history, with more than 100,000 blushing brides flocking from all over the country to the celebrated salon to purchase the perfect gown for their special day.
What really makes the Becker’s experience unique is the Magic Room -- a private, softly lit room where lucky brides can twirl and pose amongst endless mirrors, transforming like magic before their own eyes into real life princesses.
Through true stories of brides-to-be at Becker’s, Jeffrey Zaslow’s The Magic Room dives deeper into the emotional, life-changing journey of women on the brink of commitment, and the hopes and dreams that parents have for their daughters.
An Author’s Legacy
“The author, Jeffrey Zaslow, stole a special place on our hearts, and a room in our store, when he based The Magic Room here at Becker's Bridal,” writes Alyssa of Becker’s Bridal. Sadly, Zaslow passed away in 2012 while promoting the release of this book that would be his last.
In honor of Zaslow, Becker’s Bridal now gifts each bride that joins the Becker’s family with a copy of The Magic Room. “We believe that not only does it represent a beautiful bond and history that has been growing here for over 80 years, but more importantly pays homage to the life, work and impact that Jeff left with this world,” says Alyssa.
“More than 2,000 brides receive a copy of the book each year after standing in the powerful Magic Room, and as often as they continue to come, we will continue to share the love and legacy.”
The incredible bond between Becker’s Bridal and writer Jeffrey Zaslow has tied these two together forever. Perhaps brides and books were meant to be.
Celebrate Important Moments
Just as Becker’s Bridal hands out The Magic Room as meaningful tokens to their brides, companies and organizations both large and small can say ‘thank you’ by distributing books to their customers, clients, and employees.
Becker’s Bridal could have chosen to hand out glasses of champagne, a bouquet of flowers, or any other wedding related gift to their clients but instead, they chose a book -- not just any book, but one that means something to them, that offers a personal touch.
The Magic Room is the perfect takeaway for brides who not only want to remember their own experience, but learn from the experiences of others. The Bulk Bookstore team is always thrilled to hear from businesses like Becker’s Bridal that find a book they believe in and share it with others in new, exciting ways.
Why Bulk Bookstore?
Buying books in bulk and handing them out is a fantastic way to communicate your business or company’s message, especially when you’re working with a large quantity of people.
Becker’s Bridal is a prime example of how a business can use books to celebrate important moments, like a bride finding that perfect gown and seeing herself in the sparkling mirrors of the real Magic Room, while providing their clients with a memorable gift.
