Get the Latest Buzz | Here's what's hot in Charleston this season
Super Sweet Bridal Suite
Bridal beauty experts Lashes and Lace have moved to the corner of Broad and Church streets. Book their bridal suite (above) for packages that include lunch, mimosas, getting ready photos, gown steaming services, and transportation. Also new? L&L owner Kacie Faulling and her hubs also opened a groom’s lounge, Haberdash, on Market Street. Gents enjoy drinks, arcade games, darts, shuffleboard, flat-screen TVs, lunch, and shower facilities. #ColdFeetNoMore
 
 
 
Put on Some Python
Python bow ties? Don’t mind if we do! Local artisan Erika Lynn may be known for her handbag offerings, but grooms with a wild streak should take a look at her latest offerings: snakeskin neckwear. Visit her site for an array of color options.
 
 
 
Ravishing Roomies
Maddison Row moved in with Southern Protocol Bridal downtown on Market Street, so now brides have access to both boutiques’ couture lineup of gown designers (like Lela Rose, above) on the same floorspace. Book appointments for each with the contact info listed here. Bonus? SPB is now carrying Nouvelle Amsale and Amsale’s Little White Dress, too.
 
 
 
New to the Neighborhood
Savannah-based Lake Pajamas now calls King Street home. Find great (and we're not exaggerating) sets for wedding parties, brides, MOB’s, MOG’s, and conservative-chic pieces that will keep you from blushing at lingerie showers. Ask them about monogramming and bulk buys for bridesmaids’ gifts.
 
 
 
Luxe Looks for Less
Lawton Ginn Yon (who we once featured as a bride!) is now at the helm of Magnolia Bride. Formerly Fabulous Frocks (and then Gown Collective), the South of Broad shop offers designers like Monique Lhuillier, Paloma Bianca, Wtoo, and more at majorly discounted prices. Shop off the rack for something stunning to suit every style, size, and budget.
 
 
 
Too Cool 
Renaissance woman Kelly Harrold not only can plan your wedding, she can also get you decked out in the hottest version of the latest trend: custom leather jackets for brides. Find her though her blog, Paper Meets Pearl or DM her via Instagram (@papermeetspearl), where you can preview some of the looks.
 
 
 
Takeover the Water Room 
Jessica Morse of Bare Beauty Blog just opened The Water Room, downtown’s only non-toxic nail bar. Set in the chic Cigar Factory (hello, free parking) on East Bay Street, the salon (which is blissfully free of the hardcore checmical scent of most manicure hubs) has 23 stations, plus private space for up to 16—in other words, it’s bachelorette-weekend and bridal-party ready. They invite you to BYOB (bring your own bubbly) and promise they’ll bring the glasses.
