St. Louis Bridal News
A look at STL’s new shops and services to help you plan a blissful big day.
A SWEET IDEA
As brides forgo the traditional plated dessert for something a little more unique, ideas like
doughnut or cupcake bars and sundae or candy stations have taken the reigns as popular
options. Enter: Oh Lolli Lolli, a new candy boutique in Clayton that caters to the sugar-holic in us all. Located on DeMun Avenue, this sweet shop is the proverbial Chocolate Factory—sans Oompa-Loompas—and features everything from the familiar (Mr. Goodbar, gummy bears and chocolate-covered peanuts) to the hard-to-find (Mary Jane’s, Mallo Cups and flying saucers). From lollipops to peanut buttercups to malt balls, there’s a ton of goodies to choose from, whether you have a sugar craving or need some sweets for your wedding reception. What’s more—Oh Lolli Lolli will come to your venue and set up specially designed tables featuring your candy selection or create custom bags and labels with your candy for your guests. (802 DeMun Ave., Clayton, 314.721.9600)
Brides, take notice: Fleur De Lis Bridal Boutique is opening in Clayton and will offer an array of couture gowns and accessories to give every bride her dream look from head-to-toe. The collection of chic styles and couture gowns includes Rivini, Liancarlo, Elizabeth Fillmore, Judd Waddell and Junko Yoshioka and exquisite jewelry, veils and headpieces by Erin Cole (8109 Maryland Ave., 314.721.2457).
Send your guests home with more than a memorable wedding—give them custom cookies from one of St. Louis’ best bakers, Companion. The local company launched a new handmade cookie program, with over 30 different designs of made-from-scratch iced cookies. Perfect for any occasion, these delicious cookies come in shapes like a wedding dress or cake and make great favors. Brides can customize the colors to match their wedding’s theme and look as well. To place an order, call 314.352.4770 or stop by one of the area cafes (companionstl.com).
SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING GREEN
Simons Jewelers in Clayton has recently moved to a larger location and it’s twice the size of their old spot a few doors down on Maryland Avenue. The new Simons includes more space to showcase their array of designer jewelry and a newly designed interior built with sustainability in mind with special energy-efficient lighting and geothermal heating and cooling. And brides-to-be will love the new private bridal area, where you can relax as you view diamonds and wedding bands. 8141 Maryland Ave., 314.725.8888.
