Come September, there will be a new place in town to get your ‘maids outfitted for the Big Day: Bella Bridesmaids—there are over 40 locations nationwide—is opening its first Philly outpost in Old City, at 30 South Bank Street (it’s just behind Third).

Owner Meredith Hartman tells us she plans on opening the bridesmaids-only boutique with 17 designer collections, including Paper Crown, Monique Lhuillier, Adrianna Papell, Jenny Yoo, Joanna August and Amsale (plus flower girl collections from Rosebud Fashions and Lille Couture). There will be hundreds of dresses to choose from, so you’ll have no trouble finding a look and color that fits your wedding style and your bridesmaids’s tastes and preferences.
