Dreamers & Lovers designer, Yanique, dreamt for years of opening her wedding dress flagship in Los Angeles. For years, brides-to-be would commute from all parts of Los Angeles to visit the brand’s Torrance design studio. There were two areas, in particular, Silver Lake and Venice that the designer zoomed in on. She loved the hipster vibe of Silver Lake and the laid-back vibe of Venice. Bohemian brides have been wedding dress shopping in the brand’s Torrance design studio for the past eight years, but the time came for expansion, and Venice won her heart.
Where can I buy a wedding dress in Los Angeles?
After months of searching for the one, she found what she was looking for on Lincoln Boulevard in Venice. The Los Angeles Wedding Dress Designer is obsessed with everything up-and-coming, and Lincoln is the epitome of that. It was a difficult decision to open in the middle of an unprecedented pandemic. Throughout the painstakingly tricky decision process, she concluded that brides would need an escape from the uncertainty. She saw the Venice flagship as a way of creating joy and fulfilling dreams for her brides. Yanique, a serial dreamer and optimist, also found comfort in the street address. 214 Lincoln Boulevard, Venice, became the home to the Los Angeles bridal salon. She felt the numeric portion of the shop’s street-address was an omen. ‘214’ sharing the same numbers as Valentine’s Day, in her mind, was no coincidence, to the love stories her dress highlights.
Inside the shops, oasis decor and feel
Inside the shop, it’s rustically lush with dreamy arrangements by Yanique’s friend Leelina, of Leelina Martin Floral, and a host of custom upholstered vintage sofas and vintage Persian rugs. Both the outdoor and interior signs and logos were hand-painted by a local muralist. The designer wanted her shop to be filled with vintage and handcrafted pieces, to give it a feel of yesteryear, a time when artistry and handmade were a thing. Dreamers & Lovers dresses are all intentionally designed and created by craftswomen in their Torrance studio, and the flagship needed to align with the brand’s ethos. With its exposed wood ceilings and concrete floors, the shop’s interior was another no-brainer to the designer.
Dress selecting tips for the Boho Bride
The star attraction, though, is the gorgeous handmade bohemian wedding dresses. Dreamers & Lovers dresses are for the brides who want to wear a laidback gown but still feel incredibly beautiful while checking the bridal box. In this designer bridal shop, brides can expect to find loads of easy, and Whether you are the simpler boho bride or the most rule-breaking of bridal bohemians, there is a dress here for you. While the brand is known for effortlessness, the designer is quick to note that effortlessly doesn’t mean not making an effort. It means appearing that the bride made no effort. For a gown to be genuinely effortless, it must speak for itself; that is, the designer must intentionally design it to speak for itself. Designed, cut, and sewn in the brand’s California design studio, every dress gets the custom-fitted, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Yanique has created this safe space for the bride after a better and different experience when wedding dress shopping. She believes that a bride shouldn’t wear what people expect them to wear, but instead, they should choose the dress that is true to her style and the venue she has chosen. When brides step into this cozy and unique shop, the designer hopes that they will feel like they’re in an oasis of calm and magic. The flagship opened in October, and the women working there are passionate and love helping the bride’s dreams come true. The shop, Yanique sums it up by saying, “This shop has exceeded my dreams. It is a dream come true, a million times over. I couldn’t have chosen better women to guide our brides on their dress choosing journey. Our brides are in good hands, amongst a group of women who understand them, and will guide them rather than pressuring or trying to sell them a dress.”

As a bride planning a mountain wedding, there are important things to consider, such as the rugged terrain, comfort, and finding a dress that aligns with the beauty of the outdoors. As a boho bridal brand, many of our brides plan adventure outdoor weddings, and we’ve had lots of brides with incredible mountainside weddings.
Heather, a Dreamy Boho Mountain Dress – Fitted but Comfortable
Alyssa got married at the picturesque Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, a mountainous and rugged part of the Central Coast of California, surrounded by the most spectacular panoramic views. She wore the Heather fringe lace wedding dress, on her wedding day. This dress works perfectly because of the bold patterns. The floral pattern of the lace blends harmoniously with the backdrop. The off-shoulder neckline ensured that she wouldn’t be hot, or worst yet worry about sweat stains, if planning a summer outdoor wedding. Her wedding was an adventure elopement style, so it was likely only her partner, photographer, and officiant present.
She chose a comfortable design that allowed her to move around freely. Although it was a fitted style, it was comfortable to walk around in. Comfort should be a staple when choosing a dress for your mountain wedding. Mermaid styles are not good options for a mountain wedding, because you will feel restrictive. Chances are your mountainside nuptials may include hiking, so your dress should allow you the freedom to climb over rocks, or even tread through the mud.
Finally, choose a well-fitting dress. We can guarantee that you want to look your best, while not worrying about a dress malfunction. Luckily, Alyssa used our complimentary made-to-measure service, so she received a perfectly fitting wedding dress without the need for alterations. She got it home and hung it safely until the wedding day. After receiving feedback from Alyssa, it is safe to say her dress was perfect for her destination wedding, and ceremony location.
Simone, a Flowy Boho Mountain Wedding Dress
For the bride planning a mountain wedding in the colder months, a long sleeve dress option is a perfect choice. The Simone adds a flowy feel and will be easy to move around in. The earthy foliage of the lace will blend perfectly with the natural background of the mountain scenery. The stunning train makes for great photos. There is both a wristlet and a bustle for pinning up the train. The bustle comes in handy, especially if you’re planning on hiking.

Eloping is a Dream Come True.
Elopement wedding dress ideas for the bride planning an intimate, simple, and more casual wedding ceremony. Whether eloping in a national park, a friend’s backyard, or a vacation rental; don’t skimp on your wedding look. Most brides choosing an elopement wedding dress, opt for more casual wedding dresses. You should choose a dress that makes you feel empowered, confident, and your most beautiful, regardless of where you are choosing to elope. The beauty of eloping is the newfound freedom you will have to plan all aspects of your wedding. It’s your choice, so make your dreams come true.
Congrats on deciding to elope. We’re happy you’re here. Whether this was a last-minute decision as a result of plans changing, or you’ve never wanted a large wedding, know that elopements are at the height of popularity, and for a good reason. They are low-key, and best of all, you can focus solely on celebrating the love between you and your partner. With that said, it is still essential to look and feel your best self. Choose a dress that will set the stage for your story. It has to reflect your style and a reflection of your uncompromising good taste. The venue will also set the scene for the look and feel of the dress you choose.
If opting for an adventure elopement, be sure your dress is comfortable to hike in. If eloping in a courthouse, you may want to opt for a more low-key style that is more in line with the venue. Many of our brides have eloped wearing our dresses. It’s only natural because our gowns are low key but still dreamy and breathtaking for photos. I will repeat it, your dress is super important. You’ve most likely (and we think you should), invested in a talented photographer, and these are the images you will be sharing with your friends and families. Choose a dress that is YOU, comfortable, and breathtaking.

Should Your Dress Have a Train?
Many brides are usually concerned about wearing a dress that has a train. We always suggest choosing a dress that has a train. Trains make great photos, in fact, the dreamiest photos. The important thing is, be sure your dress has a bustle and a wristlet option. If you love any of the dresses on this page, or from our collection, all of these dresses come with both options, a bustle, and a wristlet. After the ceremony and photos, you can pin up the train. Don’t feel like doing the bustling, then use the wristlet to comfortably hold the train up while you hike or walk to your elopement destination. Might I add, the wristlet is cool for photos. It has a laidback elegant feel when brides have the dress held on their wrist and is an excellent, seemingly nonchalant photo.
In addition to bustling concern, we hear brides voicing the fears of the dress getting dirty. Our advice is, let it get dirty. Don’t even think about the dirt. Think only of the life-changing experience of your elopement, and being present in the seismic love of you and your partner. Think how lucky you are, to have found the love of your life, and what fun to have. You can always search up a good dry-cleaner later. The beauty of cotton laces is grass, and dirt stains will come out.

The Correct Length of Your Dress
Another vital thing to consider is the length of your dress. While it should kiss the floor, you don’t want it being too long in the front or dragging. Too long, could easily be a hazard, so avoid this. Again, our wedding dresses are to your measurements, so this is something you would avoid by providing us the correct length measurement. While the train is bustled, there is no fix on the day for the front length being too long. It isn’t fun holding up your dress all day, so avoid this at all costs.
All the dresses featured are tagged below and are available for your elopement wedding.

TLDR: Don’t Skimp On Your Elopement Wedding Dress
The key takeaway is, an elopement doesn’t mean you skimp on choosing a fantastic dress, or a photographer for that matter. Where you are eloping will set the stage for what type of gown to wear. Ultimately the dress you choose must reflect your style, and you must look like the best version of yourself wearing it. Think of what a fantastic day your elopement will be, and all the compliments you’ll receive from your fiance, friends, and loved ones! Congrats bride-to-be.
