There's shopping for your dress and then there's the dress shopping experience. I've always been a big believer that the search for "the one" should be one of the most memorable parts of your wedding plans, so if it's the latter you seek, there's a new bridal boutique you've got to see.
bridal shop pulled out all the stops for its grand opening last week. With florals from renowned Munster Rose (they were last year's Diamond Award winner in Outstanding Floral), sweets from Patisserie 46, and Canary Grey snapping photos, the Denver-based owners showed Minneapolitans that they're already well versed in our bridal landscape.
But the best part about the new addition is the boutique's focus on an intimate shopping experience. Owners Anna Walsh and Breanna Doll clearly understand the recipe for a successful bridal shopping experience. The welcoming staff, the bright and airy space across from the Basilica of St. Mary, and the unique assortment of swoon-worthy gowns (think Bohemian chic, laidback Californian, and a few traditional pieces for good measure) all make this a must-stop shop on your search. It's an experience you won't forget!
