The only place to buy a Wedding gown
This store is amazing, I stumbled upon it when I was out last summer getting a gelato. Recently engaged, I was in the market for "the one," by that, I mean dress of course! I was instantly greeted and surprised that an appointment wasn't necessary (which, after being at other boutiques was such a relief, jumping through hoops to try on a dress is not my style). After buzzing around the store I was informed that the dresses are all made of hand done silk imported from a free-trade/ livable wages Indian mill that employees all adult men and the dresses are actually put together using local seamstresses, the dresses are designed by the owner. To me it was really important to find a timeless dress that I not only loved for the look and feel, but as the sales associate put it, had "good kharma" from the beginning.

As for the selection, they are completely breathtaking and the amazing dress you wished that your mother had passed down to you. The pricing is completely reasonable and the store is not pretentious, I felt at home and comfortable thanks to the wonderful team of girls. They go the extra mile for their customers and I can not say enough good things about my experience. I'm dissapointed to see that there is a negative review, but unhappy, grumpy brides can find something wrong with even the best situation apparently.
Also, they have another store just across the street, I will be purchasing all of my bridesmaid, mother of bride/groom and rehearsal dresses from them for sure!
