Congratulations! You’re getting married!

Your wedding should be, and likely will be, a joyous day of celebration, but often enough, all the days leading up to the wedding are not. One of the most stressful pieces of the wedding equation is the dress — it’s the main focus of the entire ceremony, so it must be perfect. It’s hard to know where to begin when facing that much pressure. Never fear — we have your back. With these bridal salons, you’ll have your perfect dress before you can say “wedding.”


If you know a bride in distress, why not help her relax by giving her a GiftYa to one of these bridal shops? That way, she doesn’t even have the stress of choosing one for herself — and she won’t have the stress of a physical gift card either, as the gift certificate would transfer directly to her debit card.

They also offer quite an extensive list of designers, such as Allure, Hayley Paige, Lazaro, and Paloma Blanca, to name a few. Plus, not only will they find the perfect dress for any bride, they also have options for bridesmaids and mothers of the bride or groom.


“I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to the staff at Bridal Beginning for making my gown experience wonderful from start to finish. Everything went wonderfully and I never once second-guessed whether my gown was in good hands. Each time I went in, the staff was welcoming and friendly.” - Ellen R. on Yelp

Previously Glitter & Grit, the relatively new Luna Boutique offers gowns with a bit more funk, spunk, and pizzazz. Their dresses tend to be on the less expensive side, as compared to Bridal Beginning, but they still have an impressive lineup of designers: Tara la Tour, Anais Anette, Dan Jones, Daalarna Couture, and more. Every dress is curated with care, and the service is low-pressure to help reduce the inevitable stress of choosing a dress.


“The intimacy of the space is like nowhere else I have been. I did not feel pressured to move fast or uncomfortable as I have felt in many other spaces. On top of it being beautiful, the staff is amazing. They were all very kind, thoughtful & gave their opinions but in such a thoughtful way. They cried with my mom, my mother in law & I when I found my dress. They are also hilarious and have incredible personalities. The gowns are elegant & gorgeous. I wish I could go here all the time!!” - Elissa E. on Yelp

Every appointment is personalized, and dresses are moderately priced because you shouldn’t have to break the bank just to find the perfect plus-size dress.


“I had the best shopping experience in my life! They were wonderful! Being a plus size bride is hard enough, so going to a store that caters to the plus size bride is amazing. I felt beautiful in almost every dress I put on. If you are a plus size bride, don't hesitate to take a trip to Koda Bridal. I drove two hours and it was completely worth it! Also, they wasn't pressure to buy anything! I cannot give enough praise to them.” - Michelle D. on Yelp

Located on the second floor of a converted firehouse, not only is the space of Blanc de Blanc Bridal stunning, so are its dresses. The owner, Angelea, is a Pittsburgh native who founded this boutique to encourage her fellow women to follow their own sense of style when choosing the perfect dress. She herself is a designer who studied in Europe, and to fulfill her mission, her boutique displays the creations of other indie designers such as Alexandra Grecco, Divine Atelier, Emma Katzka, and others. If you want a truly unique dress that reflects your sense of style, Blanc de Blanc is for you.


“This was my first time ever trying on wedding dresses, and it turns out my ONLY! I was so nervous going in, I had no idea what to expect. Angelea was so sweet from the moment we walked in. I tried on 10 dresses before I even knew she was the owner. She was so patient, so kind and could tell I was self conscious- but still managed to make me feel beautiful! Her store is absolutely stunning. She helped me try on almost 20 dresses, and not once seemed irritated or annoyed.” - Ashley S. on Yelp


No need to stress about your dress — whether your price point is low or high, your size is big or small, or your taste is traditional or funky, these shops have it all. Choose the one that you believe is right for you, and you should have a great time. It’s your special day, so don’t let a bad dress shopping experience ruin it!
