For those of you who live in the New York tri-state area, or plan on visiting to shop for your wedding dress, then pay attention: Mark Ingram Bridal Atelier has moved.
Mark Ingram is one of, if not the most, fabulous person in the bridal industry. His taste in gowns is impeccable. The Mark Ingram Bridal Atelier carries exquisite gowns by Monique Lhuillier, Angel Sanchez, Le Spose Di Gio, Anne Barge, Peter Langner and Jenny Lee. (Mark carries over a dozen lines.)
The salon has moved into new digs: 110 East 55th Street, 8th Floor in the heart of Manhattan. They only work by appointment, so call them at 212-319-6778 to schedule one soon.
Here are some gown shopping tips from Mark:
1. It is important to have an actual wedding date and venue. Your sales consultant will help you select a gown that is perfect for your setting.
2. Bring tear sheets, photos and downloaded web images of styles of gowns you wish to try on. Our consultants will make additional style recommendations based on your initial conversation.
3. Before scheduling an appointment, make sure the salons you have selected feature gowns in your price range.
4. In general, limit your shopping companions to the one or two persons whose opinions mean the most.
