The Benefits of Shopping Local for your Wedding

Shopping at one of your local bridal boutiques benefits you as the bride and your community as a whole. As a bride, you will be able to go to your local bridal boutique and experience your vision morph to reality and have a positive economic impact on your community.

Before we jump into where spending your dollar matters to your community; let’s talk about how this exchange works in your favor. After all, finding the perfect wedding gown is a fundamental element to your special day.

Online shopping cannot compare to the experience of walking into a bridal shop and knowing exactly what you are buying. We have all seen those distressing articles floating around social media telling a bride’s story of shopping online for her wedding dress. These articles usually begin with a bride who seen a beautiful dress online, ordered the dress, and expected to receive the dress modeled in the photo. The dress arrives in the wrong size, made with a difference material, or does not fit how she imagined. Now comes the stress of returning this gown to a company that is out of state or country.

At your local bridal shop you get the opportunity to try on every style of dress you desire, find the perfect fit, have confidence in the quality of the dress, get your concerns addressed in person, and the experience is shared with others. A local bridal boutique, Renaissance Bridal in York, PA, stated the following statement when asked: Why do you do all of this?

“We care about you and your shopping experience. You are important to us and providing you with the best customer service is what we are all about. It is our sincere pleasure to share this special occasion with you, and our greatest joy is watching your face light up when the perfect gown has been selected.” (http://www.renaissancebridalsandprom.com/)

Shopping local does not end with your wedding gown. You may reap these benefits from attire to your flowers. We have researched and found one of Pennsylvania’s local florist. Butera the Florist is known to cater to their clients and be ahead of latest wedding trends.

“We feel every bride has a different vision and goal as to how her day should look. Her flower choices should not come out of a catalog and be the same as a bride the month before. We want to achieve a stunning look that is of each bride’s personal and individual style. My advice is to come to the consultation with photos of your floral dreams…types of flowers, color options, possibly some design concepts. Then as your wedding stylist, I connect the dots …what is it about the various photos you like? We will discuss the detail options available to achieve the foundation of your dreams…such as flower types best suited to your look, season, and budget. Once we have the vision for your special day’s dreams…we can fulfill the look with a multitude of flower types that would be suitable, usually ones you have not thought about. That is the benefit of choosing a floral design professional!”

Shopping local benefits the bride and the community because a dollar spent in your city means a dollar generated to strengthen your community’s economic foundation. The tax dollars generated in your community fund your child’s school, fixing the road you drive down every day, and grandma’s social security.

Do not sell yourself short of that magical experience of trying on wedding gowns and seeing your face light up when you finally put on the one.
