Those of you in the Baltimore area are most likely familiar with Betsy Robinson. It's one of the premier bridal salons in the area, carrying gorgeous gowns from designers such as Amsale, Amy Michelson, Carolina Herrera, Erin Cole, Alvina Valenta, Lazara, Melissa Sweet, Monique Lhuillier, Kenneth Poole, Romona Keveza...the list goes on! When I was shopping for gowns, it was one of the first places I went because I had heard about their amazing service and incredible selection!
Their website is a little difficult to navigate and can almost frustrate you out of booking an appointment, but I recommend giving them a chance and going anyway. It's located off of Reisterstown Road in Pikesville, which is off of 695, past Towson, past I-83. It's pretty simple to get to, but make sure you take good directions or a gps if you have one, just to be sure!
The salon is very cozy and quaint, and there are walls and walls of dresses. They also have bridesmaids dresses, shoes and other bridal accessories, so you don't have to worry about going any place else if you don't want to! Make sure to schedule an appointment, which is protocol with most bridal salons. This way you get the attention and time you need and deserve. Bring a photo or description, it doesn't matter how vague you are, the sales associates are quick, pleasant and know exactly how to decipher even the most bemused bride. They have several trunk shows and events throughout the year, so keep a weather eye out. It's a great way to get the dress you want for a fraction of the cost!
Hunting for my gown was one of the most enjoyable experiences I had while planning my wedding, so be sure to take your time and enjoy it! And that's easy to do at Betsy Robinson Bridal!
