Morgan Mondays: Sacramento Boutique Spotlight

Hi all!

I’m deep into wedding planning and so many tiny things need tweaking and approving and deposits – It’s nuts! Thankfully I still have Yelena Johnson of The Stylish Soiree by my side, making endless lists and courting vendors and keeping everyone calm and collected. Every detail checked off the list is one step closer to the wedding day – which is only four months away!

La Soie Bridal Boutique

Today I’m sharing with you a total gem in Sacramento – because from one girl to another, not all bridal boutiques are equal! Sacramento boutiques are tough to wade through; I won’t name names, but I’ve seen really tattered sample gowns, rude attendants, crazy markups – and so many more hiccups and disappointments! So if you’re one of our Sacramento brides, skip all the drama and go check out La Soie.

It’s seriously one of my favorite places to go and look at completely unique, dreamy gowns. There are so many wonderful reasons to look for a gown here, that I’ll put them in bullet points!

  • Everyone who works here is so nice! I know it may seem hard to believe, but I’ve been there multiple times now, and whether you’re just looking or trying on gowns, all of the employees are amazingly attentive and helpful. la soie reception I best bridal salons
  • The showroom is beautiful and the dressing rooms are huge! The place is clean, bright, and wonderfully uncluttered. They let the dresses be the decor, and are they ever!la soie I showroom bridal gowns
  • The gowns they carry will knock your socks off. I’ve looked high and low all over the internet, perusing every designer’s collections, and La Soie must have some secret source because I’ve never seen half of their dresses before!
    If you’ve thought to yourself “I don’t really like lace” or “I don’t want a lot of embroidery”, I guarantee you’ll see a dress that makes you think twice! My wedding is modern and romantic, and I was fawning over lacy embroidered dresses that didn’t fit my theme at all!

  • They have a wide sample size range. Not everyone is a size four! Some salons are a nightmare if you’re over a size six, or may have a very limited selection.

So to wrap up, if you haven’t been to this fabulous spot in Sac, you really should. They also have a beautiful selection of bridesmaid dresses too! Keep an eye out for La Soie dresses in our styled shoots – they pop up all the time!

Have a wonderful day, lovelies, and wish me luck with wedding plans!

xoxo- Morgan Elizabeth

A special thank you to the ladies at the Sacramento La Soie for letting us take pictures and borrow dresses. You rock!!
