GOWN BOUTIQUE of Charleston

When it comes to beautiful wedding gowns and bridal attire, there is a buzz in the air about the regal treatment and knowledgeable consultants at The Gown Boutique of Charleston. Our own wedding specialist, Christy found her dream gown there and received the royal treatment herself, so it is no wonder why we would still be singing their praises. Check out the helpful tips on their BLOG and call for an appointment if you are truly looking for that one-of-a-kind wedding gown and exceptional customer service.

At the Gown Boutique of Charleston we offer private appointments in which brides can peruse every style of dress imaginable. We stock one of the state’s largest collections of gowns that can be found in a privately owned bridal shop. Because of that, we have become a shopping destination for brides across the South. We also have a wide range of price points with gowns from approximately $1,200 to $6,000.

“We offer a very individualized, and special experience for each bride," says Terri Espy, who owns the Gown Boutique along with her daughter Krista Roach. With Terri’s talent for sewing and her background in design, along with Krista’s fashion and retail experience, opening a bridal boutique was the perfect balance of their talents. “We have been open since October 2006, and each year keeps getting better!”

Together as a mother and daughter team, we bring years of business acumen, excellent standards of service, intimate knowledge of fashion and fabrics, and a passion for weddings. We love getting to know our brides, and our relationship with each one extends beyond the gown purchase. It is important to us that each of our brides has her gown fitted properly and that she finds the perfect accessories to accent her gown. We are also here for each of our brides to provide any advice or help that we can give.

You have found the perfect wedding gown with a gorgeous train. You have envisioned your entrance into the ceremony and the walk down the aisle. However, you may not have thought about what you’ll do with those extra yards of lace, satin and taffeta during your wedding festivities. This is where a bustle comes into play!

You may be surprised to find that most wedding gowns do not come with bustles in place. Not all brides are the same height or size. For this reason, bustles are added during alterations and customized to your gown design and liking.

Keep in mind that your bustle should lift the back of your gown so that it is about the same length as your hem.

It is important to find a seamstress you trust to do the alterations and a bustling. But look no further ladies…the Gown Boutique of Charleston does all bustles and alterations In-House! We take pride in doing custom bustles, and it is important to choose a fabulous way to bustle your gown because your gown will be seen more often with the bustle than without. We work to enhance the design of your gown with the bustle arrangement so that it looks just as beautiful bustled as with the train spread out.
