Is the Barn Wedding on the Way Out?

We all love the beautiful and rustic barn weddings that we see all over Pinterest, but are they on the way out for 2018? Here at Boulevard Bride, we think the next big trend in wedding themes in “Garden Glam.”  Garden Glam takes the vintage/rustic look of a barn wedding to a different level.  Think brushed gold or brushed silver accented with earthy colors. Think chandeliers hanging from trees, jewels scattered on the tables, and lace table runners

Want to get a head start on the Garden Glam wedding theme? Take a look through the pictures below for some great ideas and inspiration!

Wedding Dress Shopping FAQs

The Holiday Season is upon us and you know what that means . . . it’s officially ENGAGEMENT SEASON!

Are you newly engaged or getting engaged soon? Shopping for a wedding dress should be a fun and exciting experience. Let us take the stress out of shopping by answering some of our most asked questions!


are-appointments-required

Appointments are required for bridal and bridesmaids in order to deliver the best service possible. Due to us being a smaller boutique, we may not be able to assist you if an appointment is not made. Appointments are always required on Saturdays.

Appointments can be made on our website at www.boulevardbride.com/about


how-far-in-advance-do-i-need-to-order-my-dress

We recommend that you order your dress a year in advance to avoid any stress. Wedding dresses can take 6-9 months to make and then you will need time for any alterations that need to be done. If you have a quickly approaching date, we will try to help you in any way that we can.


what-is-the-price-range-for-bridal-gowns

We try our best to have gowns in everyone’s price range. Our dresses can range between $500-$3,000. Before beginning to shop we will ask you your price range and will make sure that we only pull dresses in your price range.


what-size-are-your-gowns

Our gowns run from size 10 to size 22. Bridal gowns are sized by pattern sizes so our sizes are about 2-4 sizes up from your jean size. If a dress is too small or too big we have ways to make them fit.


Who-should-I-bring

We recommend bringing only family and friends whose opinions you value. With larger groups it is easy to feel overwhelmed by all of the different opinions. We notice that the appointments seem to go smoother if there are 2-3 people who come along. Since we are a smaller store though, we ask that you bring no more than 5 people with you.


what-should-i-bring-to-my-appointment

Less is more when it comes to what you should bring! We recommend wearing spanx or a bra and panties that you are comfortable in. When choosing a bra to wear for the try-on session, opt for a strapless bra so that the straps do not take away from the dress.


is-photography-allowed

Photography is allowed for bridal and bridesmaid appointments. You may take pictures of the dress, of the details of the dress, and of course of you in the dress. We do not allow any pictures of tags, style numbers, or prices.


how-do-i-pay-for-my-gown

We make paying for your gown simple and painless! If you are buying an off-the-rack gown the full amount must be paid when purchasing the gown.  If you are buying a gown that needs to be ordered in (most of the gowns), we require a 60% down payment. The rest of the payment may be paid in installations or all at once. The remaining balance must be fully paid when you come in to pick up your dress once it arrives at our store.


We hope that this helped to make you feel less stressed and more excited about wedding dress shopping!

If you have any other questions about shopping for a wedding dress and everything that it entails, feel free to call us at 636-561-4030 or email us at boulevardbridal@gmail.com

Color Blocking

Do you like to stand out in a crowd?  Color blocking is one of our favorite trends this season!  Color blocking is when contrasting colors are used to provide a eye catching and unique look.  Don’t worry, we didn’t go too crazy with the colors. . .

Off-the-Shoulder

The off-the-shoulder dress is a new trend that we are so excited for! We saw a few dresses with off-the-shoulder straps during homecoming season, but now they’re back in full force for prom!  The off-the-shoulder look is the perfect mix of elegance and sexy for your 2018 prom!

Embroidery

We all love the embroidery trend going on right now in bodysuits, t-shirts, and shoes … get ready to see it  in full swing for Prom 2018!  The added embroidery gives each dress just a little extra glam without being too much.

Bell Sleeves

The 1970’s called and they love that the bell sleeve is back! Exaggerated sleeves have been all the rage this fall season and we are loving seeing them in prom dresses!  Go all out with a big bell sleeve or stay more conservative with smaller ruffle sleeves.

Wedding Gown Preservation

Why Should You Preserve Your Wedding Dress?

Your wedding is an extremely special and monumental day.  You spent months, and sometimes even years, planning everything from the location and the food to the bridesmaids dresses and most importantly, your wedding dress.  Preserving your wedding dress gives you a living memory of the magical day.  Wedding gown preservation not only protects your dress from yellowing with age, but you also get your dress professionally cleaned so that all stains that were acquired during the wedding are removed.

Who is Wedding Gown Preservation Co.?

“Wedding Gown Preservation Company was founded in 1913 by Sara and Joseph Schapiro in Endicott, New York. Sara and Joseph specialized in the preservation and alteration of wedding gowns. Together, they created the family formula which is still in use today. They are now a third generation family-owned business operated by the Schapiro family. They have had generations of brides preserve their gowns with them.”

100 Year Guarantee

“All wedding gowns are professionally cleaned and preserved by our certified specialists. In very rare instances, a gown will yellow over a period of time. In the unlikely event this occurs, we are happy to reprocess the gown at no charge. Should we be unable to remove the yellow, our bride’s preservation cost will be refunded. Beads and sequins are excluded. Improper handling of the gown may cause damage and compromise the true preservation of the gown.”

How Do I Preserve My Gown?

Call Boulevard Bride at 636-578-8770 to schedule an appointment to drop your dress and veil off at the store.  When you arrive, a trained staff member will take your dress and check it for stains. We will place “stain here” stickers on the dress to alert Wedding Gown Preservation Co. staff of the stains that need to be cleaned. Once we have checked the dress for stains we will place it into a special bag with the veil and cleaning instructions. This then gets sealed into a Wedding Gown Preservation Co. box that is shipped to the cleaning and preservation facility.
