I was over 2 months in to my dress search and getting frustrated with the big bridal shops. My mother in law suggested I check out Nan's boutique in Petaluma. I was worried that the price would be out of my budget, because the shop is darling and has beautiful vintage and unique designs. I was going for a classic hollywood look and something simple and comfortable without all of the corsetting, petticoats and lace that come on oh so many typical wedding dresses. I also didn't want a strapless dress which siginficantly shrunk my selection at most of the shops or I had to use my imagination to picture an added piece of satin on my shoulders that may or may not add any support...I was thrilled to finally find exactly what I was looking for for only $700! The dress is a Selena ivory satin sheath with a cowel neck front and back and gathering across the mid-section toward covered buttons on the left side. It is so elegant and flattering and very well made. I absolutely attribute my success to Nan hand picking the designs that she chooses to buy for her shop from the shows she attends herself. She is also a wonderful help while you are shopping in her boutique, making you feel special while also providing honest feedback and helping you find just the right look. I also bought earrings there to wear on my wedding day that were a very delicate gold hood with gold webbing and tiny pearls weaved in. She has a lot of really lovely jewelry made by local designers.

This little dress shop in downtown Petaluma is a diamond in the rough. It specializes in classic and simple bridal gowns. Nan was so easy to work with and went out of her way to make us feel comfortable. We outfitted the bride and bridesmaids with her help.
