If you are from the Cincinnati area, you know the Reading Bridal District. You know that's where you go to find your dress, the cake, etc. It's been a good 9 years since I really stepped foot into a Bridal Boutique to look at wedding gowns, and the things that shimmer and shine. But last month, the GBE team was able to get a behind the scenes look at White Wisteria Bridal Boutique!
The boutique is nicely situated on the corner of the Bridal District and as soon as you walk in you are overwhelmed (in the BEST way possible) with gorgeous gowns, sparkles, and a light and airy ambiance. With two floors and several rooms, there are so many options for the bride, mother of the bride, and bridal party, that you're sure to find something you love.
Our favorite parts were the crisp colors that made up the store! The dreamy blue walls definitely emitted classiness and sophistication, but also gave off a peace and calming feeling.... Which is definitely what brides needs when choosing a dress! We also loved how large the fitting area was! Plenty of space to walk (and maybe twirl) about.
We also got a chance to sit down and talk with Rene about White Wisteria and what it means to be a Girl Boss in the Bridal District!
