Ready to dive in? Here are the top bridal flagship stores that New York City has to offer.
Tucked away in a quiet corner of SoHo, you’ll find Australian-made brand Grace Loves Lace’s flagship storefront. From the moment you enter, you are transported into a dream-like world of pearlescent, lacey gowns. The experience begins with a greeting from your personal stylist, and your choice of a glass of black rose tea, a crisp glass of bubbles—adorned with rose petals—or sparkling rose water. From there, stylists will assist you with finding the perfect gown that fits your bridal style. Along with Grace Loves Lace’s wedding dresses, the store also carries the brand’s ready-to-wear line, accessories (jewelry, shoes, veils), occasion wear, and flower girl dresses that are sustainably made from previously unused fabric.

To note, made-to-order BERTA wedding dresses are not available for purchase at this location. Berta.com

As stated on the website, you can expect “a playground of headpieces, a gallery of veils, [and] a generous display of fashion-forward dresses."
