If you're getting married in the City of Angels and are on the hunt for the perfect wedding dress, we've got you covered — these are our favorite local bridal boutiques.
Filled with dreamy wedding gowns, vintage-inspired jewelry, and boho-chic wedding decor, Anthropologie's bridal boutique BHLDN has a charming shop-within-a-shop on the mezzanine level of Beverly Hills' Anthropologie location. You'll find gowns from designers like Tracey Reese, Catherine Dean, Anna Sui, Badgley Mischka, and more, plus gowns from their own in-house brands. Brides can also book a one-hour private appointment with a stylist for the complete head-to-toe experience. Read real brides' reviews here!
The store for the anti-bride, Reformation uses recycled fabrics and eco-friendly practices to create their modern, streamlined gowns that err on the side of sexy (expect plenty of cutouts and plunging backs). Plus, you're sure to find a superflattering silhouette in their Melrose Avenue shop for under $600.
If you'd prefer to exchange vows wearing something completely one-of-a-kind, check out this charming Echo Park bridal shop specializing in affordably priced vintage dresses, gowns by indie designers like Daughters of Simone and Truvelle, and custom-made designs by owner Maria Luciana Diaz.
Designer Claire Pettibone is known for her fairytale wedding gowns and silhouettes that channel bygone eras, so it makes complete sense that her flagship salon is located in a 1928 castle-like historic landmark in West Hollywood. Her gowns embody the perfect mix of vintage romance and bohemian spirit with subtle couture details, feminine embroidery and charming flourishes; think beautiful, one-of-a-kind heirlooms and sumptuous garden parties.

If any dress designer is known for being iconically classic, it's Carolina Herrera. Her Melrose Place salon is stocked with the latest from her bridal collection — gowns with everything from sheer illusion detailing and fitted bustiers to sleek mermaid silhouettes in silk mikado, Chantilly lace, and organza.
