Bridal Gown Bliss

It is the day young girls dream about well into adulthood — their wedding day. When this dream finally becomes reality, it should be perfect in every way. The stylists at Priscilla of Boston agree.

Priscilla of Boston is a premier bridal salon with locations nationwide. The family of salons recently expanded to include Raleigh at Cameron Village, marking its first location in the Carolinas.

“The Triangle is one of the fastest-growing areas in the U.S. It is known for its stellar university systems, cultural resources and professional sports and therefore sought out by young professionals of the marrying age,” said Connie Merriman, fashion director at Priscilla of Boston in Raleigh. “That makes for lots of happy couples and happy brides-to-be!”

With this addition, Priscilla of Boston brings to the area not only the latest styles in bridal couture but also a one-of-a-kind experience for brides-to-be and their loved ones. Luxury defines the salon in all facets beginning with the space itself. Marble and hardwood floors, crystal chandeliers and an extensive dressing area with private rooms for both the bride and her bridal party are a few of its defining features.

“It is a very relaxing, peaceful and elegant setting with a homelike feel,” said Merriman.

The luxury does not end with the decor. When a bride-to-be comes in to Priscilla of Boston she can expect to be pampered and receive personalized attention from the initial consultation to the final dress fitting. The team of professional stylists is dedicated to making what can be a daunting experience into one that is enjoyable.

“We are excellent listeners who get a feel for how the bride really wants to portray herself on the day of her wedding,” said Merriman. “Our stylists will work with her to ensure she finds a style to match her vision.”
