WHY WE LOVE THEM
Wedding dress shopping should be fun and a special experience but too often we hear from brides that it was one of the most stressful things on their wedding to-do list. An overwhelming amount of places to choose from, extremely expensive gowns, pushy sales people and dress burnout- dress shopping is no walk in the park.
We like to meet with local vendors and showcase the ones that will make your life way less stressful as you prep for your wedding. We recently met Garnet & Grace Bridal boutique at their store in Hayward and fell in love with it’s romantic and unique gowns, and their bright and airy store. The reason we love them so much is they cater to all brides whether you are a size 0 or 20- all brides are beautiful and they have a gown for every body shape and every budget. Gorgeous dress for $500? Yes please!
I’ve been to my fair share of bridal boutiques as a photographer, friend, bridesmaid and bride and I can say that there is a short list of those that I would recommend and Garnet & Grace is one of them. They are a great blend of friendly, talented and most importantly- truthful. They won’t force the most expensive gown in the store on you, especially if it doesn’t fit your body shape. They will help you find the dress that will make you feel great on the day of your wedding and keep the experience of dress shopping fun. If you go, be sure to ask for Megan, the manager. She is an absolute doll and will treat you like a friend.
And if they weren’t already awesome enough, they are having special celebrations every Friday of this month. Brides and their ladies are treated to champagne! I’ll be joining them on Friday May 12th to photograph all the lucky brides finding the gown of their dreams and having a blast with their ladies. Pop the bubbly and mark your calendars and we’ll see you there!
