The following international ‘it girl’ bridal boutiques are a celebration of innovation. Envisioned and brought to life by young entrepreneurs who were inspired one way or another by their own personal pre-wedding journeys.
As little as a year ago, there were very few brick and mortar locations that burgeoned this unassailable ‘it-ness’. From northern California to the canals and tulip fields of northwestern Europe, these boutiques have earned the ‘it girl’ trophy title from their myriad creative collaborations, revered labels and attractive online existence.
Extending beyond the ephemeral cool-girl nature that they have recently procured on social media, these boutiques offer an opportunity to try on gowns in conceived spaces that reflect stylistic nuances akin to a repurposed industrial Melbourne café or New York City loft. Let’s get you dressed.
