7 Things a Bride Should Know Before Shopping at Grace Loves Lace

By Hollywood Gossi... on October 5, 2022

Not even five minutes into my visit at the new Grace Loves Lace boutique in Washington DC, I was already fantasizing about ways I could repurpose a wedding gown that don't involve actually getting married.

I walked down the aisle nearly three years ago, so my bridal-attire needs are squarely behind me. Even so, it's hard to resist the romantic allure of a champagne-colored, brightly lit room filled with racks of silky white gowns. Set in the District's trendy Union Market neighborhood, this shop is among the brand's most recently opened brick-and-mortars, and the ambience alone is enough to get your heart fluttering.

Along one wall, exposed brick creates a charming, homey atmosphere. Meanwhile, the gold, oversize, floor-length mirror in the boutique's main room provides the perfect place to snap a few photos for Instagram - with huge windows that look out onto the street, the space is flooded with gorgeous natural light all day long.

At first, I didn't think I'd fall in love with anything I tried on. I was here on assignment, after all, and as a Very Professional Fashion Editor, I had a job to do. But as I started sifting through dresses to try on, that familiar high began to set in. I remember it well - when I was dress shopping for my own wedding a couple years ago, every bridal appointment left me feeling completely blissed out. There's just something about being surrounded by beautiful gowns that conveys a sense of calmness and ease, and that's precisely how I felt during my Grace Loves Lace wedding-dress shopping experience.

With the popular Australian bridal brand expanding its footprint across the globe, it's becoming a more recognizable fixture on Instagram feeds and Pinterest boards alike. Whether you're seeking a lacy backless number for an elegant elopement or a two-piece, boho-inspired set for a beachside ceremony, Grace Loves Lace is a trendy wedding-dress label that will almost certainly have a style that matches your bridal vision.
