For the Austin Bride in search of her perfect wedding dress, we at Awe Events want to make your life a little easier by suggesting some great Austin bridal boutiques we know! To do that, we sent Awe Events Social Media Manager, Anna, to photograph and get the scoop on the Austin bridal boutique scene! We hope you enjoy the blog and love these boutiques as much as we do.
Located just off of Lamar, this unique boutique is true to its motto of being “the cure for the uncommon bride!” There I found a wide assortment of gowns ranging from traditional to boho styles. Unbridaled has a super friendly staff and beautiful dresses that properly reflect the uniqueness of their brides. And the boutique itself also carries a special aura to it that you will feel the moment you walk in, with its colorful and quirky ceiling décor, blue walls and plenty of natural light pouring in through its tall windows. There's no denying this boutique has style. Visit Unbridaled at 701 S Lamar Blvd. ($$).
Blush Bridal Lounge
Blush Bridal Lounge was an amazing experience from the moment I stepped out of my car and saw their adorable store sign leading up to an even more adorable pale yellow boutique. Inside I was greeted by the super sweet store manager, Kristin, as I took a look around at their assortment of elegant and vintage designer dresses and accessories. Specializing in made-to-order designer dresses, Blush Bridal Lounge is definitely a shop to check out in the earlier months of your engagement in order to have your dress ordered and made in time for your wedding! However, Kristin was happy to tell me that for brides with less time that are looking to purchase at sample sales or directly off the rack, Blush Bridal Lounge also has an economic-chic and sassy sister store: Second Summer Bride in North Austin! You can find Blush at 1815 W 35th St. ($$$). Second Summer is located at 1308 W Anderson Lane. ($$).
Blue Bridal Boutique
This lovely boutique is “by appointment only,” but an employee kindly allowed me to take a look around the Blue Bridal Boutique for our blog! This boutique has a beautiful selection of elegant gowns from simple and traditional to detailed and extravagant. Though Blue Bridal did not allow photos, I leave you with a picture of the outside of this South Congress Ave boutique and the recommendation of making an appointment to see these beautiful dresses for yourself! Located at 1007 South Congress Avenue. ($$)
Once Upon a Bride Wedding Resale Boutique
I had an especially pleasant experience at the Once Upon a Bride Wedding Resale Boutique! Upon arriving I was greeted by two friendly employees and enjoyed a nice conversation about Zac Efron and the movie Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (because that's what you do when you're in the wedding industry, right?) while we waited for the approval of the boutique owner to feature Once Upon a Bride in our blog. Once we got the "ok!," I went right to exploring this neat wedding resale boutique. They have a great variety of wedding items for rent and purchase- chandeliers, shoes, vases, décor, you name it! This boutique is also an excellent option for brides that are looking to save money on their dress. (There is even a dress section dedicated to dresses that are under $200!) Once Upon a Bride has a generous selection and variety of dresses amongst many other wedding items, so be sure to give them a visit at 1931 E Ben White Blvd! ($).
Alexia Gavela Bridal
Though Alexia Gavela Bridal may be known for its more formal-style designer gowns (such as those of designer Calla Blanche), this quaint bridal boutique carries a little bit of everything from simple and elegant to quite detailed! The very personable staff at Alexia Gavela Bridal are more than ready to help, and according to the AG website, one can expect to enjoy "free wine with grapes or cheese and crackers" at their appointment, which is a definite bonus in my book! Check out this adorable and classy boutique for yourself at 3704 Crawford Street. ($$$).
Serendipity Bridal had one of the larger wedding dress selections that I came across in my exploration of bridal shops! A very open layout, there were many racks of gorgeous gowns for me to peruse through and admire as I photographed the shop. Like most of the shops I visited, Serendipity carries a little bit of everything for the Austin bride! Meet their friendly staff and see their lovely selection of dresses at 2438 W Anderson Lane. ($$$).
