Gables Style: More Than the Dress


More Than The Dress

By Patricia Guarch Wise, www.miaminicemag.com x www.shopcoralgables.com

For more than fifty years, Coral Gables has been Miami’s neighborhood for brides-to-be and one of the world’s bridal shopping capitals. Yes really, Miracle Mile is a world-renowned bridal shopping area.

Local bridal businesses will tell you that about half of their sales are to international brides who’ve heard the decades-long buzz about Coral Gables’ wealth of bridal shopping boutiques. Brides are flying in with their entourage in tow ready to find the dress for their big day at one of The Gables’ bridal stores.

You’ve seen the dresses in the windows, admit it, you’ve stopped to pick your favorites, at least I have, but did you know that there’s more than just the dress that a bride can check off her to-do list while shopping in Coral Gables?

Oftentimes, it’s even more stressful to shop for bridesmaids dresses than it is to find the perfect wedding dress. Picking your dress should be fun and easy, there’s only one body type to take into consideration, one person’s taste – yours! But it can be tough to get everyone on board with bridesmaids dresses. That’s why it’s great to shop on The Mile where you have a bunch of stores to choose from; Alfred Angelo Bridal, David’s Bridal, Leggenda Bridal, Merlili Bridal Boutique, Bijou Bridal & Special Occasion, J Del Olmo and more of the area’s bridal stores also carry special occasion and bridesmaids dresses. Why not make a day out of it? Bring your gals and start at Bulla for brunch and then head down the Mile.

Your beauty look on your wedding day is just as important as your dress. Don’t skip the details, let the experts at Flirt & Flutter or Nerio Camargo help you with eyebrows, eyelashes, makeup and more.

After the wedding, you’ll want to have your dress dry cleaned and preserved. It’s safe to say the sign of a fun time is always a little sweat. Coral Gables La Salle Cleaners and Society Cleaners are experts in cleaning and keeping your wedding dress sparkling white.
