I had come across a great resource years ago for Brides called The Bridal Bar. This boutique shop can be found in Los Angeles, San Diego and Atlanta (hopefully more will pop up near your area). The flagship store in LA opened over 6 years ago and has helped A-list celebrities like Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Katherine Heigel, and more plan their weddings.
The concept is unique: They help Brides plan their wedding for free. As a bride you are offered champagne, and have all the wedding resources available to you in one area. They have books, videos, photos, and expert advice all at your fingertips and in a chic setting. The girls help you with all of your questions and guide you towards the best vendors in the industry. It’s an incredible idea and a bride’s best friend.
