Around Town: Lula Kate
Lula Kate is a great bridal shop downtown located at 310-B King Street, which specializes in bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses. They slowly moved from clothing to bridal dresses and have been very successful. In 2007, the Lula Kate store was opened and instantly became “the” place for Brides-To-Be. The designs are inspired by a Charleston theme of classic elegance and clean lines in not just bridal gowns but also their extensive bridal party collection. These come in a wide range of fits and any color you can imagine. With twenty-four dress styles to choose, they can meet any wedding feel! Most of the dresses can be made in a variety of fabrics including Silk Shantung, Silk Dupioni, Satin, Faille, Poly-Shantung, or Seersucker. The skirts can be customized for each woman to include styles like: Tulip, Straight, 2-Pleat A-line, Cocktail, Full or Maternity Skirt. Each bridesmaid could have a different dress in the same color or the same dress in different colors.
‘Sassy Stripes’ is a strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline and has large stripes that give it a very elegant and fun feel. The ‘Bridget’ is a one-shoulder dress with a slight ruffle across the top and the ‘Gina’ is a scoop neck in the front and back with a cocktail skirt, which gives it a more full feel. My favorite dress from the bridesmaid collection is called ‘Christy’. It has a ruffle collar silhouette with a high back and a pleated skirt. The bridal gowns are simply amazing; a fact evident by the lengths people will travel to purchase one. Stop by their King Street Boutique next time you are in town for wedding planning!
