I have the best job in the world! There is nothing better then working with a bride to find her perfect dress for the  best day of her life. To see her eyes sparkling with love as she talks about her fiancé and then seeing that same sparkle when she puts on the perfect dress.

I also love , when a girl is looking for the perfect dress for a prom, pageant, quinceanera, bridesmaid, mother of the bride or groom, or a fun cocktail dress. These are fun and exciting times of life and I feel so blessed to have some small part in their special day.

Hi, my name is Nicole Strand. I have owned Celebrate the Occasions  for 10 years. It's a family run and operated business. I love Cedar City and was born and raised here. I believe that Cedar needs great retail shops.


I know that most brides only have a few months to plan their perfect day, so I choose to have a large inventory to choose from. I love my job! Getting to go to market and select gowns that fit all the needs of my brides is amazing, but I have to say my favorite part of the day is watching my bride's eyes light up when she finds the perfect dress.

Working at Celebrate the Occasions is a joy. I love serving our customers with whatever they are looking for- from tuxes to prom dresses, to wedding dresses for our brides!


I love experiencing the fun and joy that comes when our customers are served and satisfied. We all love our jobs here.

Come in and let us serve you!

"I wasn't pressured to buy a dress that I didn't like or that was more expensive.  Nicole was so helpful & not to mention patient!  I know that I can come back with questions or if I need help & I will receive it.  Everyone was so helpful & fun!"
