See Pictures from J.Crew's Heavenly First-Ever Bridal Boutique

This week, J.Crew opened its first bridal boutique, at 769 Madison Avenue, and it is absolutely dreamy. The space is based on a French salon layout, and every nook and cranny has something special to offer. From the store's exclusive offerings, like sumptuous hand-beaded evening gowns, flirty cocktail dresses made from the finest duchesse satin, and lingerie, to the one-of-a-kind Lulu Frost necklaces and exquisitely crafted Leah C. couture headpieces, the location is jam-packed with lovely treasures.

And it is not just the stock that makes the store so chic. A walk downstairs from the main floor reveals the by-appointment-only showroom that houses the full bridal and bridesmaid collections. Parties can book one of the four private suites located on the floor, each containing two fitting rooms, so they can make decisions as an individual sales specialist pours them champagne. Some of the additional services the store provides include personal shopping to help with wedding-related events, like your rehearsal dinner and your honeymoon, and recommendations to help NYC brides find cakes, flowers, and wedding planners.

Basically, the boutique is a top-notch one-stop-shop for everything bridal. To book an appointment, call 212-824-2500.

As you enter the J.Crew store, there is a receptionist. Every detail is thoughtful, from the reclaimed wood floors to the intentionally worn-in, hand-painted black-and-white star.
