About

2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner

Located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Lovely Bride Philly is a wedding dress boutique that serves clients throughout Philadelphia, central Pennsylvania, South Jersey, and Delaware. This professional salon has been part of the industry since 2009, specializing in modern and alternative gowns.

This spirited approach is still at the core of Lanie鈥檚 shops today as she prioritizes indie dressmakers and the unique vision of each client.

    LOVE The Lovely Bride Philly

    I cannot say enough about this place! My sister found her dream dress here and when I got engaged I knew this was the one and only place that I wanted to go for my dress. Being a plus size bride, I wanted to make sure I felt comfortable and confident and this plays continues to blow my mind. They are just amazing and gave me some perfect options to try on without completely overwhelming me. They never pushed me towards a style or made me feel uncomfortable. We ended up combining details from a few dress to make my dream dress (which was their suggestion) and I couldn鈥檛 have been happier. If you live in the Philly area please make sure to visit The Lovely Bride, you will not be disappointed!!

    Simply the best!

    Lovely Bride Philadelphia, you will forever have a very special place in my heart. Thank you for making the dress shopping experience what it was. Ivy, thank YOU for being YOU. You were such a pleasure to work with and made the process so easy and enjoyable. Lovely Bride is a beautiful store with an amazing selection of absolutely gorgeous dresses.

    The first time I tried on my dress, I was pretty sure it was the one, but I left that day without buying it and came back a week or two later. I also appreciated this because Lovely did not pressure me into making a commitment and when I came back to try it on again (and this time buy it), Ivy spent extra time with me to accessorize and pick the most BEAUTIFUL veil to go with it.

    I was a COVID Bride and for the longest time, I clung to the dress shopping experience. It was one of the only moments that I truly felt like a bride. The fact that I had such a wonderful experience at Lovely really helped me to bottle up the joy of this time and treasure that moment.

    Anddddd one the silving lining of COVID is that I got to wear my dress twice !!

    Lovely Bride's reply:

    Jackie,

Visiting Ivy and her team is one of my favorite things to do! The wedding gown selection at Lovely Bride Philly compares to no where else. Everything is so unique and never-seen-before. That is so hard to do with wedding gowns! Of course, as a hairstylist, one of my favorite sections of the store are all the breathtaking head pieces to accompany the gowns. At Janelle on Location, we love Lovely Bride!
