For those of you keeping score at home, it's bridal and engagement season. Yes, you've survived the holidays, and Valentine's Day is coming up, but if you are now engaged to be married, you've got other purchases on your mind and a lot of the planning and giving is about YOU. That's a good thing.
There are so many items to consider, but there are also fun items - GIFTS, GIFTS, WE SAY!!! - and we have them in our boutique's Gift Corner. While you're thinking about all the things for you to wear, consider all of the items you may want to ask for, purchase for your reception or give away.
We give you permission to share this with those around you. When you come looking for a gown, bridesmaids dresses, tuxes, veils, etc. check out the gifts we stock as well.
ABOVE: Reception games, like Cornhole, are a big hit. at bachelor and bachelorette parties, rehearsal dinners and receptions.
BELOW: Need a drinking cup, mug, wine glass, mug or mason jar? You're covered! These are not only fun, but they are useful for getting the bride ready with her closest friends and maids on the day and great gifts for the couple to use for their first year or forever.
We love helping brides choose not just their gowns and key pieces for their day, but making the company they keep happy as well. BT sells gorgeous robes for the wedding day or to take on the honeymoon or - if you're a bridesmaid - to keep. [ASIDE: Kelly has a friend in Asheville who is not married or getting married and she loves these robes. They are like kimonos and intrinsically comfortable and elegant. Mother's Day? HELLO!! But we digress........]
Our shop, by definition, is for brides and those surrounding them on their big day, but we've worked hard to curate a gift corner that is thoughtful, fun and has a selection of things newlyweds will love and those nearest and dearest will appreciate. COME SEE US!!

She is a certified wedding planner (no, she does not plan weddings), and everything she knows about bridal and formal wear has come from, gut instinct, trial and error, and watching LOTS of What Not to Wear.
