Blush Boutique . . . for your best day ever!!
NEW BERN — The newest bridal shop in our area, Blush Boutique, is located in historic downtown New Bern at 222 Craven Street. As you enter, you are greeted with beautiful gowns, sparkling veils, and accessories. This small boutique is decorated with stunning chandeliers and large mirrors just like you would find in a larger venue. The selection of wedding gowns is unique and high-end designer in a range of styles.
The owner, Jean Lloyd, recently opened the shop to provide a boutique experience with designer gowns and accessories to meet the needs of brides in New Bern and surrounding areas.
“The historic district of New Bern on Craven Street was a perfect location for this designer boutique, “ said Lloyd, during a brief interview.”
The shop also offers designer formal shoes, sashes, and jewelry for formal and bridal wear. Shoppers looking for formal shoes — with brands including BadgleyMischka, Butter Bridal, and Dolce — can find them here. The shop carries lace and monogrammed handkerchiefs, veils and headpieces as well as custom etched glassware for bridal gifts. Brides can also find short and casual wedding dresses for the destination wedding.
Lloyd, who started an Etsy shop to provide a unique shopping experience for bridal dresses and formal accessories, wanted to sell locally so she opened this boutique in mid-May. Brides will find custom made accessories for their wedding day that no other bride has. The hard-working Lloyd also designs rhinestone sashes, veils, and hair accessories for the bride who wants a custom piece. The boutique provides this as a service in their Etsy shop, as well as selling dresses and accessories to worldwide customers. Blush can also ship items worldwide!
At Blush, wedding gowns are purchased off the rack and alternations are done offsite at the buyer’s discretion. Lloyd says providing gowns for brides and having alterations done by a professional seamstress ensures that the gown is properly fitted for each unique bride. Blush’s offering of gowns is exceptional, and compares with even the most exclusive shops in eastern North Carolina and Raleigh.
Blush also features a current selection of high-end designers wedding gowns such as Enzoani, Vera Wang, Kitty Chen, Henri Roth, MoniqueLhuillier, Pronovias, Maggie Sottero, and Allure among other top designers.
Blush is not a consignment shop and only sells new designer gowns and accessories. The boutique is open with summer hours from 11-3 on Tuesday – Saturday. Everyone is welcome to come and shop. Lloyd suggests that brides make an appointment for fittings so that every bride receives a personal boutique experience. Call her at 252-497-8875.
