Liberty & Lace
Searching for a wedding dress can be tough, stressful, and a roller coaster of emotions. When I was shopping for my own wedding dress about 3 years ago stores, I couldn’t help but be frustrated by old dingy carpets, outdated styles, terrible lighting, racks upon racks of dresses with too many choices, and bridal attendants rushing you in and out of dresses to meet their next appointments. Liberty and Lace has flipped the idea of a traditional bridal boutique on it’s head!
We had the pleasure of photographing the brand photos for Liberty and Lace as they launched their website and it was such a joy to capture! Their white-washed intimate Main Street storefront has the most beautiful diffused natural lighting which makes dress shopping BEAUTIFUL and easy(and not to mention instagramable with their large antique mirror!) You can actually tell how the dress will look in photos on your wedding day instead of lit by overhead florescent lights. Another thing that makes their shop so unique is that their shop is small- so you get the boutique all to yourself for your appointment! This makes your wedding dress experience intimate and relaxed and tailored to you!
At the moment, Liberty and Lace sells wedding dress designs from Kelly Faetanini and are the only boutique in the Philadelphia area selling her dresses! Many of their gowns feature customizable beading, detachable necklines, and removable sleeves, making each dress that much more unique. They worked with Kelly's team to carefully select elegant wedding dresses that feature various silhouettes, necklines, fabrics (think lace, tulle, crepe, and Mikado), and colors (blush, blue, and ivory dresses!), so no two dresses are the same.
So how soon is too soon to go wedding dress shopping? We get this question so frequently since we usually book with couples right after they book their venue. But we suggest 12-8 months before your wedding date is the perfect time to book! If you’re around that point or are nearing, we highly suggest adding Liberty and Lace to places to shop for your dress! Liberty and Lace Bridal is located at 4390 Main Street in Manayunk.
