I’ve been engaged for quite a while and since my fiancé and I are so busy with our work lives, it has been difficult to do any real wedding planning. So when I was invited to a special media-only event at Montreal wedding dress shop Boudoir 1861, I jumped at the chance to cover it. This was certainly going to be an evening that would inspire me to get the ball rolling in the right direction.
Where to Begin Your Wedding Planning
Once you’ve gotten over the initial excitement of getting engaged, you may feel a sense of both panic and despair (as I did). Although you may have been dreaming of this day since childhood, you now have no clue where to go or what to do first. Statistics show that one of the most stressful parts of planning a wedding, besides seating arrangements, is finding THE dress of your dreams.
So where does one begin? Take a deep breath and relax!
If you’re lucky enough to live in Montreal, the perfect solution is waiting for you right in the heart of downtown! Let me introduce you to the beautiful bridal boutique Boudoir 1861.
Ideal for Brides & Bridesmaids on a Budget
Upon entering the quaint, urban, vintage inspired shop, a true hopeless romantic will surely feel she has come to the perfect place to start a new beginning. Every bride to be will get to live out her childhood dreams while playing dress up in a warm and inspiring low key venue.
Both brides and bridesmaids will be welcomed to browse an eclectic array of young, hip, trendy and whimsical finds with the help of the very intuitive bridal stylists available to assist you on site.
