Let’s Find Your Dream Gown Today

The nature of our boutique is 80% considered “Off-The-Rack” meaning you fall in love with the gown you try on and you get to take that beautiful gown home for LESS than it originally retailed… an amazing deal! However, we do carry 3 Made-To-Order Lines:  Rebecca Ingram, Maggie Sottero, & Sottero & Midgley. These lines can be ordered in the closest bridal size and other colorways, however, most of our off-the-rack gowns fit just as beautifully. Overall, whether a brand new gown or off-the-rack, alterations will be required, so definitely don’t let that deter you!

All of our gowns are of a high quality designer name and are in peak condition. We work very hard to find vendors, designers, and styles that we know our brides will love! 99% of the time you would not be able to tell the difference between one of our off-the-rack gowns and a gown that came out of our manufacturers box. We keep our gowns in the best condition!

Our Off-The-Rack gowns can range from $750 – $3,000 (usually fall between $899 – $1,500 — during sample sales we bring out $500 gowns (Typically March/April & November) and can be taken home the same day. Our ordered gowns range from $1,300 – $3,000 (usually fall between $1,399 – $2,650) and usually have a 4 – 7 month waiting period. However, SELECT gowns can be in as soon as 4 weeks!

Paul Reitano Photography

Paul Reitano is is a portrait/wedding/anything you want photographer. His sparkling personality puts people at ease and he gets the absolute best shots. He’s based out of New England, but no worries. He will travel all through New England, the Mid-Atlantic, and as he phrases it, “and the rest of the Universe.”

I have had the pleasure of working with Paul. I highly recommend him for any photo shoot you need. He not only works with digital photography, but is one of a dying breed of photographers who believes vintage film cameras still get the best shot. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind photographer to capture that one-of-a-kind photo, check out paulreitano.com, or reach out to him at paul@paulreitano.com

“New England based wedding photographer working with vintage film cameras as well as digital.”

“Seeking couples who appreciate an expressive and sublime aesthetic.”
