SHOP TALK: Inside the Boutique
Running a bridal boutique is one of the most fun, exciting and challenging experiences. Beyond that, the most rewarding part about doing it yourself is having complete freedom to do it however you want... and so here's a little bit into how we decided to do it... (oh and of course some pretty pictures along the way of our new dresses and some inside the boutique pictures!)
Our mission: to bring stylish and fashionable designer bridal gowns to Savannah brides that are affordable and high quality but not cheap to the everyday bride while offering a laid-back relaxed bridal boutique environment and experience.
What does this mean? We hand-pick each designer that we have in Ivory & Beau and we hand-pick each and every dress that is available. Our designers are not made in factories in China but rather are made in the United States and Australia with fabrics that are high quality. Our wedding dresses range from $1,000 to $3,500 with the average price being between $1,200 and $2,500.
About the dresses: with over 100 dresses we have many options and styles to choose from. Whether you're looking for a poofy romantic ballgown, a bohemian chic style dress, a fitted lace gown with or without some drama at the bottom, a traditional Southern bridal look, a sexy chic sheath, or maybe even a lil bit of blush... we have it. Our current designers include Nicole Miller, Anna Campbell, Sarah Seven, Daughters of Simone, Blush by Hayley Paige and Ti Adora and we are always getting in new styles from these collections. (Follow us on Snapchat & Instagram - ivoryandbeau for behind the scenes when we get new stuff in!) All in all, we have dresses that are stylish, fashionable designer gowns that are affordable high-quality dresses.
The Boutique: Our shop is not like every single other ordinary bridal boutique that exists. Nope, we don't have all white chairs, only blush accents, boring elevator music, stuffy mcstuffystuff, etc. We want brides to walk into our shop and feel at home. The shop is filled with funky antique furniture, bright colors, wedding decor accents, fun happy music (that usually includes some Selena Gomez, JBiebs and Hotline Bling), and unique displays such as our antler rack with sashes, or our antique shelf with birdcages. We wanted our shop to be laid-back, fun and comforting and I think we did just that. I mean, when you have to come to the place everyday it only makes sense to try and make it feel as comfortable as possible, right?
About the accessories: Looking for a bridal veil, headpiece, sash, jewelry, garter or birdcage? We have basically a million options for you to choose from. We work with a local designer, Adele Amelia, who not only drops off a ton of new options but she can also work one-on-one with you to design the bridal accessory that completes your look. And the best part? Our accessories are affordable too. Our sashes are mostly all under $200, veils vary based on length but still are not crazy expensive, and our headpieces are also affordable. We are all about style, fashion, sparkle and good quality for less.
