17 Nov Charleston’s Top Bridal Boutiques
We don’t know about you all, but when the weather’s chilly and with the holidays are right around the corner, there’s nothing we want to do more than pop inside the most hoppin’ boutiques around town. Holiday shopping, you know? So what if we end up with a few things for ourselves? ‘Tis the season of giving, after all. Sit back, relax, and get ready for some fashion, ladies, because we’ve highlighted the crème de la crème stylish spots in Charleston.
(left) Long sleeves and lace make for a dreamy combination–not to mention the pistachio sash. Talk about #GownGoals. (right) This silk embroidered gown will certainly fulfill the “something blue” requirement. (Also, take a look at the cape!) But, if blue isn’t for you, your bridal party will definitely love the idea of wearing this contemporary piece.
(left) Since it’s finally jacket weather, this ultra chic Zadig & Voltaire jacket will keep you looking in vogue wherever you go, whatever you do. Trust us. Glasses: Tom Ford (right) If traditional just isn’t your taste, this Marchesa tulle and floral embroidered ball gown is the love match for you.
