Inspiration behind your store:
There are a lot of things that inspired the creation of Bride Boutique. From the sustainability of wearing a vintage gowns, to the supporting indie-designers, Bride is continually inspired by a need for alternative options to mainstream wedding gowns and bridal salons. We really focus on making Bride a comfortable and stress-free shopping experience while doing something good for the environment and small businesses around the world.
What you look for when curating your store:
We look for gowns that stand out in design, quality, and fit.
Best advice for brides:
Don't be afraid of being a bride. Because we cater toward the alternative bride, we tend to get a lot women who are scared of becoming a "conventional" bride, or worse a "bridezilla." They either focus too much of finding something "unique" or easily give in to the options of others, rather than going what they truly feel physically and emotionally good in. If you like the big princess strapless gown, thats ok! Its your wedding day. (And, if you like the polka dot black dress thats ok too!)
Top music for trying on gowns:
This is a hard one, I think it all depends on the client, season, even day of the week. When its my day to choose the music for the store, I'm a bit of an old lady-odd ball; I usually go with The Supremes, Patsy Cline, or David Bowie. All very different, but all classics that no one can deny. They always seem to put guests in a good relaxed mood - perfect for wedding dress shopping.
