History

Established in 2010.

We opened Lovely Bride as a haven for brides who wanted a wedding dress shopping experience that felt fun and laid-back, while showcasing the coolest indie designers that weren't so 'available'. Fashion industry veteran, Lanie List, had experience building lifestyle brands, so she set out to create that Lovely Life, with Instagram-worthy shops, a blog about wedding fashion, and a loyal following of brides and brand fans we call #ourlovelies. Word spread about the new way we were doing bridal, which brought us a lot of attention, including love from smart women around the country who wanted a Lovely in their town. So Lanie decided to franchise Lovely, since she loved the idea of helping women get into business. Today, Lovely is a collective of 18 individually-owned bridal shops, run by entrepreneurial, hardworking women who care deeply about offering a personalized and locally-focused experience. By shopping at Lovely, you shop local, independent and women-owned. Good on you!

    Stress-free and Excellent Experience!

    wonderful and stress-free experience at Lovely Bride. The process begins before your day trying on gowns. I made a wish-list of dresses I like from the website, then a week later I had a phone call with my consultant to talk through the gowns, my wedding vision, my body type, ect. I arrived at Lovely Bride for my appointment and my consultant had strategically picked the order of my gowns based on our conversations. I only tried on 5 dresses, which I credit to my consultant being great at her job and the conversations we had before I arrived. I loved the whole process, and thought the pre-try on process made the actual try on day go extremely smooth. Big shout out to Lindsay for being so wonderful to work with, super helpful and making the day be stress free!

    PS he store made my mother and I feel very safe with their COVID protocol (masks on, limited appointments, wash hands upon arrival, ect).

    Easy and Professional

    I loved my dress! The experience I had (both the initial and follow up with my bridal party) was perfect. I would absolutely recommend going here, ESPECIALLY if you don’t know what you’re looking for (I didn’t!)
