Guide To Boston Wedding Dress Shops

Common, Harbor Islands, Faneuil Hall, the Fens, the Museum of Fine Arts, the New England Aquarium, Old North Church. Boston surely offers many places for your picture-perfect wedding. Tie the knot at a beautiful church, then move on to an evergreen park to snap a few – or many – photos and finally, to a venue by the waterfront for a reception right under the skyline of Boston.

For most brides, however, the months leading up to the wedding are sometimes even more exciting. Especially, trying on bridal gowns and picking out that one perfect dress that makes you feel and look like a princess. Luckily, downtown Boston is home to many bridal salons that offer a wide selection of dresses. Stroll down Newbury St. to start your journey and walk down narrow side streets to Boylston Street to find your dress.
