Looking for the perfect bridal shops and wedding dresses is a challenge, but luckily Portland, Oregon has many professionals ready to help. Whether you're having a funky wedding at one of Portland's many microbreweries, or you've rented out the Portland Art Museum for 500 guests, you'll need the perfect dress to match.
Every bride wants to look her best on her big day. It's understandable; not only will all your friends and family be there, but the whole event will be immortalized in photos and video. As you visit Portland bridal boutiques, keep an open mind and try on wedding gowns in multiple styles. Bridal shops are a great opportunity to experiment with different looks. Even if you see wedding dresses that aren’t the exact type you were picturing, you might change your mind when you see yourself in the mirror.
Shopping for bridesmaid dresses can be a chore if your bridesmaids all have different ideas of the perfect dress. If you can't get your whole wedding party to agree on one style (it is your wedding, after all) try giving them free reign in Portland's bridal shops to find flattering dresses for themselves to match your wedding colors.
Are you tempted to look for wedding dresses online? Be cautious, and make sure you fully understand the online bridal shop's return policy. When you can't deal with a store in person, you're at a higher risk of being shipped a gown that doesn't exactly match the wedding dresses you were shopping for.
Portland has many styles of bridal shops. Where you choose to shop for wedding dresses depends on the type of experience you want to have. Large warehouse stores will have a larger selection of less expensive wedding dresses, but you'll miss the personalized attention of a smaller boutique. Look for wedding dresses in a variety of bridal shops to make the most of your experience.
