Oh, the wedding dress. Once wedding plans are underway, who doesn’t dream of “The Dress?” Sure, for many brides it makes them feel like a princess, but it’s more than that. It’s in every picture and every memory…and it’s likely the most expensive item of clothing you will ever buy! With such an important decision to make, having access to an amazing selection and supportive experts is key!
Traditions by Anna Bridal Boutique is known for having high-quality, princess-worthy bridal gowns as well as amazing customer service. They feature designers from fashion capitals all over the world, and each gown is expertly made by hand. While a gown typically takes 4-6 months to be made, rushes are available for some designers. For brides who can’t wait 4-6 months, they offer “Ready to Wed” dresses that can be bought off the rack.
Usually, however, wedding plans take at least a year and the gowns Traditions offers are well worth the wait. Some featured designers like Carolina Herrera and Lea-Ann Belter have been creating exceptional gowns for generations of brides. Some designer lines, like “Hello Darling by Heidi Elnora” and “Gala by Galia Lahav” are more contemporary. What all the gowns have in common is artistry and exquisite details. Brides who range in style from bohemian to classic elegance will find the picture-perfect wedding dress of their dreams.
With such an abundance of gorgeous gowns, finding “the one” could be overwhelming. Luckily, the boutique is as well-known for its service as it is for its selection. Brides visit the store by appointment to ensure that they get the attention they need while making their selection. Staff help brides bring their visions to life while narrowing down their choices by taking many details into consideration.
Initial bridal appointments typically take an hour and a half and include one-on-one attention from a senior bridal stylist. Additional visits may include assistance finding accessories or fittings/alterations. There are special appointments for selecting bridesmaid dresses that can be part of a “girl’s day” with your attendants. Brides seeking an exclusive, memorable experience may select a private “White Carpet” appointment, which may take up to 3 hours.
If you have a dream-dress by a featured designer in mind that is not available to try on, fear not. The boutique will have the gown flown in just for you to try on. Alteration services are offered in the store. Once alterations are complete, they can press and steam the gown prior to portraits or the event. After your wedding, you may return to the boutique to have your gown preserved.
Occasionally, the boutique has special events. There are two coming up in September. The first event is September 14-15, where they are featuring a designer that’s new to their selection. That designer is Marchesa, and the gowns at the event are from the Spring 2019 collection.
