Philadelphia Wedding Spotlight | Lovely Bride

Wedding

Walk inside of the doors of this Old City gem and you’ll have your eyes full of some of the most beautiful frocks this side of the catwalk. This new bridal boutique is absolutely hopping after opening its doors in 2013 with the charismatic and stylish Ivy Kaplin at the helm.  Lovely couldn’t be a more fitting name.

I stopped by the shop to indulge in the soft frillies – lace, tulle, illusion backs, non-whites, short, feathered, beaded, organza, silk… I could go on and on but that’s not my job. It’s Ivy’s.

I asked Ivy if she still gets excited about the dresses and tries them on when the shop is closed. I know I absolutely would. She confessed that she does and that she has nicknames for a good few of the dresses. That’s my kinda girl!

Make an appointment at Lovely Bride and take advantage of the biggest dressing rooms I’ve ever seen at a wedding dress shop (and I went to 6 of them myself).

Then indulge in the luxe gowns yourself. Oh, and check out the selection of veils, belts, jewelry, and other accessories. There was this ridiculously gorgeous delicate garter that was to die for!

Give Ivy a hello from me and be sure to tell me which one you pick!

Laura and Ed’s wedding day couldn’t have gone more smoothly. The weather was perfect and it was just gorgeous at the William Penn Inn out in Montgomery County. The ladies in guava gathered in one of the suites as Laura got ready. Her Maggie Sottero wedding gown was a vision! It was about the third dress she tried on. I can totally understand why she’d stop looking after this! I loved the millions of billowing layers of tulle.The bracelet she wore was borrowed from her mother and she had her new initials monogramed in blue onto an old lace handkerchief.We grabbed a few of Ed’s formals before the ceremony as the guests started to arr ...

Rachel and Jon had a beautiful daytime wedding at the Wallingford Community Arts Center in Media, PA. This place is such a hidden gem.

Unfortunately, the grounds were too muddy to have the ceremony outdoors as o ...
