New Concepts in Shopping for a Wedding Dress

The last couple years we've been hearing about the new concept out there, In Home Boutiques, offering everything from sportswear to lingerie. Defined, they are just that: A clothing store in a private residence allowing for that one-on-one shopping experience by appointment only.

As of Febuary 5, Bride, an 'in home bridal boutique' in Los Angeles is open for brides wanting something a little different. Owned and run by designer, Maria Diaz, Bride carries pieces from independent designers such as Peppermint Pretty, Holly Stalder, and Ktjean. Maria explains what inspired her to open Bride: "As a formal wear tailor and seamstress I started to realize that there were a lot of women who wanted vintage or independent designer wedding dresses, but they were limited to online sources such as Etsy, which didn’t give them the opportunity to try the dresses on. At Bride, women would have a chance to try on these kinds of dresses, while the 'at-home' and 'by appointment only' setting boutique would keep with the personalized traditions of independent and DIY weddings."

With an eclectic collection of vintage and salvaged materials, Maria can also work with guests to create the perfect custom piece or help you on your search for a specific piece if she doesn't carry it. "It's is all about creating a very personalized and intimate shopping experience for my guest" says Maria. "I want it to feel like your visiting a friend who just happens to have lots of wedding dresses and accessories." Women interested in visiting Bride can make an appointment by contacting Maria at or calling 909-684-6451. Bride is located just outside of downtown Los Angeles, at 728 Hartford Ave, 90017, visit for more info.
