Looking for some last minute shopping inspo? Read on to see some of our favorite gift ideas
Kick Up Your Heels
Model Bride is coming to town in late 2017. Known for its hands-on, down-to-earth customer service, the bridal boutique that began in New Jersey carries labels like Nicole Miller and Wtoo, among others. A point of difference from other Lowcountry shops? Their extensive array of chic Big Day shoes. They might just have enough to sate your inner Cinderella.
Tiny But Mighty
The trend for tassel earrings, necklaces, bracelets, key chains, and on started elsewhere, but Mimi Striplin’s Tiny Tassel owns it here. Ladies looking to spice up their wedding weekend looks or to gift their maids and flower girls custom accessories should flock her way, and maybe even sign up for her DIY classes for a little crafty bonding.
Colur Us Ready
A makeup and beauty treatment studio that uses augmented reality to help you try out new looks? Sign us up. Colur Studios, in the Hyatt Midtown Complex on Upper King, is the stuff epic bachelorette and wedding weekends are made of.
New Kids on the Block
Verità, run by husband-and-wife team Nicholas and Jessica Kiss—we couldn’t make that up—opened this October in Mount Pleasant. Expect gowns in the $850-$3,500 range and designers like Allure (pictured) Madison James, and Tara Keely.
What’s better than Cinderollies Monogrammed pouches for your Cinderollies! Rollable ballet slippers have long been a favorite bridesmaid gift and reception favor for those ready to slip out of their shoes, and now this Charleston-based company offers theirs in bags emblazoned with hashtags, wedding dates, or whatever you dream up.
Oh, that elusive, beautiful beast: the bridesmaid ensemble you actually wear again and again. Senza Tempo, a Charleston-designed, Los-Angeles-made line, offers just that with custom, silk-lined looks for bridal parties.
Set on the second floor of the posh hotel of the same name, The Dewberry Spa is wrapped in scented cypress wood and offers treatments based on Lowcountry elements like rice, native plants, and sea extracts. Add that the hotel's brasserie, Henrietta’s, is just steps away and a day at the spa becomes a must for local and destination brides alike.
