These bridal salons are for the rebels, the dreamers, the beat-to-your-own-drumm-ers and the all around no-fuss-chic girl who is just looking to have a romantic good-old time.

Newly engaged? Feast your eyes on these white show-stoppers.

LOHO literally means “League Of Her Own” – perfect for the high fashion girl that wants a dress like no other. This bridal shop’s niche is set “for women who don’t identify with the mainstream aesthetic” – and that they accomplish. With dress designers such as Houghton NYC, Odylyne: The Ceremony, Cortana and A La Robe to name a few, you can expect architectural silhouttes, dreamy fabrics and a guaranteed cool girl look from this salon.

Located in both Los Angeles and San Francisco, LOHO Bride is the anti-bride’s mecca.

If you aren’t following The Dress Theory’s Instagram, it’s definitely time to do so.

Settled in an old craftman-meets-cottage house, the whimsical decorations with Mid Century Modern accents will make you want to curl up with a good novel surrounded by romantic dresses.

Designers include Sarah Seven, Rue de Seine and Blush by Hayley Paige, among many others. Perfect for the bride that loves a classic twist with a contemporary design.

What makes this Netherlands boutique special is their curated collection with designers from Rime Arodaky to Alexandra Grecco. This bridal salon caters to the bohemian bride that also wants that hint of modernity. Their Instagram proclaims, “For the bride who will always be wild at heart.”

We couldn’t agree more.


5. La Bespoke Bride

La Bespoke gives us our dream girl: a hippy at heart that throws a mean house party. This curated collection located in Worcestershire, UK is bringing “the new cool for bridal.”

Carrying designers like Daughters of Simone and Anais Anette, we are 100% digging it.
