Tip of the Day #32: Take Off Your Princess Crown

Tip of the Day #32: Take Off Your Princess Crown Okay, ladies.  I totally, totally get the idea of having one chance in your life to plan a wedding, particularly an opportunity to shop for fabulous wedding fashion.  Although the pomp and circumstance surrounding wedding dress shopping at gown meccas like Kleinfeld's and Bridals by Lori seem exciting (Hello Friday night entertainment on Say Yes to the Dress!), the process is often, in actuality, overwhelming and stressful.

I recently stumbled upon a Manhattan-based wedding dress boutique that takes the stress and frustration out of standard wedding dress shopping.  Lovely Bride features a series of about fifteen gown designers and has been described as "A bridal shop that feels like your best friend.  You'll feel cozy and at home, play dress up, and leave feeling like you had the best time and bought the best dress."

If the photo below doesn't sell you on booking an appointment at Lovely, I don't know what will.  Check out Lovely's Blog as well for some fantastic wedding design inspiration and get to shoppin'!
