When shopping for the perfect wedding dress, you MUST check out the Emma and Grace Bridal Denver showroom downtown! Whether you’re looking for a ballgown dress for a black tie wedding, or a boho lace dress for your mountain elopement, they have it! Not only do they have one of the largest showrooms in Colorado with 20 different designers to choose from, their staff is SO helpful and knowledgable about different styles and trends.
Emma and Grace is located in the heart of Denver’s art district, called RiNo (short for River North). Just down the street on Larimer you will find a multitude of breweries, bars, restaurants, shops and boutiques. After you say Yes to the Dress, you and your friends can celebrate at one of these many hot spots! There are also a few other bridal shops within a few blocks, so it would be fun to book a few appointments throughout the day and multiple showrooms!
Colorado has many different locations, cities, towns, and backdrops for weddings. Many couples get married in the mountains during the fall, some get married on rooftops in downtown Denver, and others elope on a ski mountain in the winter. Denver is a great central location to not only find your wedding dress, but to find a bridal shop that can accommodate any style of wedding you may be dreaming up!
With 20 different designers to choose from, you’re sure to find a dress that you love! Some of the big names would be Karen Willis Holmes, Leanne Marshall, Pronovias, and Willowby. And don’t forget their own personal in-house collection!
As soon as you enter Emma and Grace’s Denver showroom, you’ll be in sensory overload with just the sheer amount of dresses displayed in front of you. And then you will start to notice the accessories on the tables and walls of the showroom such as jewelry, shoes, rehearsal dinner dresses, flower girl dresses, and much more!
I LOVED taking closer looks and their trendy items on display such as the bridal headbands, hats, and add on wrap sleeves! The different combinations of looks one can create with the dresses and accessories they have in their downtown Denver showroom is endless.
Take it from me, I actually set up an appointment at Emma and Grace for myself! I’ll be tying the knot this summer and booked a few appointments through the city. Guess where I found my dress?? Yup, the Emma and Grace Bridal Denver bridal shop! I wanted a looked that was classic yet modern, and the literally the first dress they showed me, was the one. I loved that I could play around with adding a few accessories too!
The team was so helpful and fun. They asked me a few questions about my wedding vision, budget, and style. From there they pulled a bunch of dresses for me. I felt very heard and seen by them, as I let them know which ones I liked and didn’t like as much, to help narrow down my decision.
They were also very clear with me on timeline to get the dress made as well as alterations. They do all the alterations in shop! I also talked with a few of the designers who help create the Emma and Grace Bridal collection in house. What a talented team! They also have trunk shows throughout the year to highlight different designers, be sure to check out when those happen here!
Right when you book an appointment, the team will ask you what your price range is. Every designer is different, and every dress is different. I’d say the average dress at Emma and Grace Bridal would be about $2,200. (This does not include alteration costs, which can also add up). Of course, the team is so helpful and will help you find dresses within your budget. They can range from $1,500-6,000.
As a wedding photographer, (and a bride-to-be!), I know how expensive weddings can be. While budgeting for a wedding, I was told great advice a long time ago that I still tell me couples; choose the 3 things that are most important to you for your wedding, and splurge on those. For me, personally, (and I’m biased because I’m a wedding photographer), I would choose location/venue, photography, and my wedding dress. Why? Well, as noted, being a wedding photographer, I know how important it is to invest in great images to document the day. They will be the one thing that last forever from your wedding (other than your spouse!). And then I think, “What will be in every photo?” Your venue/location/backdrop! Sometimes locations can be cheap, like a beautiful park. Sometimes, venues can be very expensive. But if it is beautiful, your photos will be too! And lastly, my wedding dress will be in every photo. I don’t want to skimp on a dress that I’m just “ok” with. I want to be very confident in my decision and feel very comfortable wearing my dress. Hence why I will pay a pretty penny for the perfect dress!
While doing research on different bridal shops in Denver, I really wanted to highlight Emma and Grace’s shop. We paired up and did a fun styled shoot to highlight some of their in-house designs and it was SO much fun! Check out some of the styles below!
