Where Should I Buy My Wedding Dress? The Long Island/NYC Brides Guide

Lovely Bride NYC 

Your wedding dress is one of the most important and spoken about aspects of your wedding day. Finding the right wedding dress can be one of the most exciting purchases you will ever make, of course besides your house. 

To help you navigate through the hundreds of bridal boutiques you will find, I have done the research for you and found you some pretty amazing places to say yes to your dress! 


The Mews

I personally love The Mews. If you’re looking for glamorous dresses that are not huge poofy Cinderella gowns, The Mews will have your dress. 

With sleek, clean designs and simple but elegant accents this boutique is perfect for the rustic bride, the glam bride and the bride that wants something simple but very very beautiful.

Lovely Bride NYC

You are going to fall in love with this bridal shop as soon as you walk in. Pastel colored walls and a chic modern design sets the mood for your shopping experience. 

Much like The Mews, Lovely Bride has modern dresses with intricate details that will have you salivating. Form fitting silhouettes is a running theme at Lovely, but they do also have some stunning A-line dresses as well. 


Gabriella NYC

Before I describe the shop and the gowns, I would like you to know that Gabriella NYC participates in the charity “Brides for a Cause.” Gabriella NYC donates the dresses that are coming off of display to this organization that resells them to brides that can not afford wedding dresses. This really pulls at my heart strings because I am always looking at companies that give back. 

At Gabriella NYC you will find dresses that belong on the runway. Each gown gives off that high fashion feel and will surely having you feeling like a million bucks on your wedding day. 

You will also find more traditional dresses with a Couture twist here. 


Also great!
