I feel like a lot of us are at the age where our timelines and mailboxes are flooded with engagement announcements, save the dates, and wedding invitations. This wedding season, whether you will be a bride, a bridesmaid, or a guest, I really think you should get fitted at Daphne’s Bridal Boutique.
Located in downtown Columbus, just 90 miles south of Atlanta, is this adorable, family-owned shop that has been dressing the greater Columbus area for the last 10 years. Walking into the shop, you’ll immediately feel at ease as you’re warmly greeted by the staff. While just stopping by to look around is always an option, I would highly recommend making an appointment so that you have a full hour dedicated to you.
In addition to the personalized service, I love that there are so many options to choose from. No matter what you’re looking for, the Daphne’s team will make sure to help you find something that makes you look and feel great. The last time I attended a wedding, they encouraged me to go with something completely outside of my comfort zone (something bright and shiny for my more muted choices), and it was honestly the best choice for me because I felt fantastic. I know they can do the same for anyone that walks into their store.
The other thing that I love is that Daphne’s can accommodate the needs for just about everyone. As a full service boutique, the Daphne’s team can and will outfit brides, grooms, bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girls, ring bearers, and mothers. They can find your (daughter or niece’s) dream dress for prom night and make sure her date is fitted to match. They can create the perfect look for any ball or gala for you and ensure your escort’s fly matches yours.
On top of all of that, you can walk out of Daphne’s looking fantastic without breaking the whole bank! Bridesmaid dresses start at $179, formal gowns at $250, and bridal gowns at $600. Based on my own experience, and what I’ve heard from others, it is DEFINITELY worth it.
I will say that I have known the family behind Daphne’s Bridal for a few years and have been working with them for the past couple months to help them continue to grow and connect with customers. Honestly, this has given me a front row seat to see how they work and made me even more of a believer. There are no wedding bells in my near future, but you can bet that whenever they come, my whole wedding party is going to Daphne’s. And until then, I welcome any and all invitations to formal events so I have all the excuses to let the Daphne’s Bridal Boutique team dress me again.
