Former magazine editor and writer Molly Guy was itching for a career change when she got married in 2010, and she found the experience of planning her wedding inspired her the most. Disheartened by the dearth of cool, laid-back bridal salons in the city, Guy decided to open her own eclectic salon for bohemian brides. The resulting space is built from reclaimed wood and decorated with Moroccan textiles. A Bedouin tent serves as the dressing room, where brides-to-be can try on atypical gowns such as Lars Andersson sleek and simple white tank dresses ($1,100), Daryl K knee-length sequin-covered shifts ($1,700) and Electric Feathers silk belted jumpsuits ($1,800). Dresses can be styled with an array of accessories, including Lars Andersson custom-made lace shawls ($1,000), Mandy Coon studded-leather purses ($650) and Anna Sheffield pink-gold wedding bands ($1,100) engraved with the phrase not to be fucked with. Engaged gals needing more than just fashion assistance can also shell out for Secret Service consultations (30 mins, $100) and get advice from florists, professional organizers, shamans and even sex therapists to help ease the stress of wedding planning and married life.
