We are so excited to announce our expansion! We love our consignment gowns and will continue to offer only the best pre-loved and discontinued sample gowns we can find. But we are happy to announce that we now carry order-able brand new gowns from Sweetheart Designs, Rosa Clara, and Allure Romance. That's right! Our brides get the best of both bridal worlds - choose from a beautiful selection of designer consignment gowns or have the option to order a brand new designer gown in your size and color. We are working on building our order-able stock and have a couple in stock to choose from. Please Note - Ordering a new gown from any designer takes between 5-6 months to arrive.

Recently Meghan from Meghan Rose Photography interviewed Cindy, the boutiques owner. Below is the interview. 

"I met up with Cindy at her shop a few weeks back and was so impressed with her knowledge of not only dresses, but the bridal industry in general. She shares some awesome tips with me for this feature, keep reading to hear more from her!

How did you get started in your business?

My first job in bridals was at the age of 16. I worked part time at a bridal shop in Glen Burnie while finishing up high school. Then over the next several years I found myself in about 5 other bridal shops around Maryland. I left the industry for a while to pursue another career but always knew that the next time I worked in a bridal boutique it would be my own.

How you would describe your style? What is your favorite type of bride?

I would describe my personal bridal style as...Bridal! My 2014 wedding dress was full of beads and lace. I had a cathedral veil and I think I really played the bridal role. As far as my favorite type of bride, I would say a confidant bride. A bride who knows what she likes and is confidant enough to wear what she wants even if it isn't a crowd favorite. I often seen brides who are eager to please the her loved ones and to some extent I understand that desire but sometimes a brides feelings get lost in the crowd and I love when a bride takes control of her bridal appointment and is able to express her feelings about a style or a gown regardless of what others think. After-all it's her special day!

What is your favorite part about your work?

From a business stand point, my favorite part about my work is that it's mine - I enjoy picking my inventory, I enjoy pricing it my way and being able to control my business. As a bridal consultant I enjoy the special bond that myself and a few of my brides form. Its great to be able to be a small part of this special time and when a bride finds her gown at my shop it's just as special to me as it is for the bride and her family. These moments can not be faked - and the emotions are very real for everyone involved in the bridal journey.

How do you love to serve your clients?

As someone who worked in bridal for a long time before owning one of my own and also being a newlywed I understand what my brides are searching for - it's more than just a gown. Its an experience. Its a shop that they can be confidant in and a sales person who can answer the questions they have - truthfully. And I think that's the best way I can serve my brides - by being honest and sincere in every aspect of my business.

If you had one tip for a bride, what would it be?
I can't narrow it done to just one tip so here's a short list.

-Shop small and local - the experience is usually better than the big box bridal shops.
-Go with your gut and don't over think the purchase.

-Be confidant in your instincts and stop shopping after you find the gown.

-Ask questions - if your consultant can't answer them or they aren't confidant in the answers - move along.

-Bring only the people who's opinions you truly value.

-Try everything. Even if it's a style you're unsure about - you could be very surprised by a silhouette you may pass over several times.

-Trust your consultant to help you find the dress. It's our job to dress brides and most of us are really good at it!"

Why us?

Love & Lace is the only bridal boutique in our area that exclusively focuses on the Bride. We take purchasing a bridal gown very seriously and know that the day you decide to go gown shopping is a special day and we want all of our brides to feel like she's the only bride in town! That's why we work by appointment only to try on wedding gowns. Bring all your loved ones - there is plenty of room and we will have a great time! 

Your appointment will begin with a brief consultation. This will allow the consultant to get to know a little about the bride, her wedding day and her style. If you have references please feel free to bring them. After our consultation we will head to the racks and begin pulling dresses to try on. The average appointment time runs about 1.5 hours. So please come with time to enjoy this experience! You deserve it!

We do not offer Bridesmaids dresses, Mother of the Bride gowns, Flower Girls or any other special occasions gowns. Just bridals, veils and other bridal accessories. This leaves 100% of the attention on the bride while she is shopping for her dream dress.
