Gown options are abound from Bev Hills and beyond, but now there's a new wedding wonderland after the hearts of Westside bohemian brides. Open as of last month, Solstice Bride is now welcoming aisle-bound ladies and their wedding party at its dreamy new Venice showroom.
Tucked away on California Avenue just off Abbot Kinney, the sunny, second-floor space exclusively stocks dresses by indie bridal lines like Stone Fox Bride, Delphine Manivet, Anais Anette, Donatelle Godart, and Alexandra Grecco, among others. The shop also offers custom gowns designed in collaboration with RTW-turned-bridal brand Odylyne The Ceremony, plus wedding accoutrements by Jennifer Behr, Heart of Gold, Erica Elizabeth, and Olivia the Wolf; lingerie for the big day; footwear; and more.
As far as interior design touches, the stylish shop features exposed brick walls, Moroccan textiles, and mid-century modern furniture to complete the free-spirited bridal experience.
In love? The by-appointment shop is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11am to 6:30pm; book your visit online here.
