I had previously written on the salon located in the shops of 50th and France. On Thursday, I visited the Priscilla of Boston salon to have my bridesmaid try on dresses. The staff was remarkable. They were friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. I worked with Annie, and she provided stellar service.
The salon itself was bright and beautiful. Towering gilded mirrors, elegant lighting, and antique inspired display cases provided an ambiance of exclusive luxury. I was more than impressed with the setting I found myself in.
The staff provides an email exchange program with your bridal party members. They will provide information for your choice of style and cut. They allow for flexibility with measurement appointments, and ordering over the phone for your out of town maids.
The price ranges my shy some budget conscious brides away. There are five lines of dresses within the salon. The price ranges vary. Platinum, Melissa Sweet, Priscilla of Boston, Reverie, and Vineyard. Vineyard is the most affordable line, with bridal gowns averaging around $2,000.00. The Vineyard bridesmaid dresses are elegant and affordable as well, the one I selected was priced at $198.00.
Along with bridal gowns and bridal party dresses, the salon offers accessories by Le Mystere, Maria Elena, Debra Moreland, Blue Tux, and Haute Bride.
Brides, I strongly encourage you to call and make an appointment to view dresses for yourself or your party members. The accessories alone are worth the trip.

I was lucky enough to meet with Sadie earlier this afternoon. She is as bright and vibrant as her floral arrangements. Her story is inspiring, as she began her business in November 2007, and has grown enormously since then.
Her special touch when it comes to stems shouldn't be overlooked. The clean and modern elements incorporated into her centerpieces are stunning. For more info on this local gem, check out sadiesfloral.com.
