No it’s a lot of stores.  Think swap meet but lots of shops.

It’s the Fashion district, so there are a ton of shops selling a ton of things.  You have to have a good eye and know what you’re looking for.

It is inexpensive but again it’s not the easiest place to find what you need, other than dresses.  They have lots of dresses!

We went downtown this weekend. (Which was awful because there was also a march that shut down tons of streets) I can imagine that there’s tons to buy but we just bought beads and other materials for making jewelry for my bridesmaids. We walked into some of the more wedding stores, but I wasn’t impressed. Maybe the heat was just getting to me by the end of the day.

did you see any rhinestone headbands? I need to make it out there but going to downtown is never a quick stop.

you can pretty much find anything you need at the fashion district.  headbands, vases, fabric, really anything you want.

@june0522, if going downtown is too much time for you, you might want to try posting a picture of what you want on alchemy (its party of etsy.com) and seeing who can make it for you.

The Fashion District is a bit more overwhelming than the rest of it all. We accidentally drove straight down Maple trying to get to the bead stores the first time we went and it was chaos. We saw more than one person running away from a store, likely stealing something, and being chased down by other people. Try to park a few blocks away and walk in. And hold tight to your purse.

What’s the reality with decent good priced wedding dresses that aren’t too cupcake looking downtown (like $300-400)? I’m trying to figure out if it’s worth the trip because I haven’t found ANYTHING that’s really making me feel this will work.

@KIKI82:

I purchased my vases from downtown saved $300.00. Looking on going this August before rainy season to purchase fabric for my table linens and chair covers. 

1. Wear comfortable shoes (no high heels or 2-7 inch heels)
2. Bring a bottle of ice cold water
3. Bring mucho dinero “money”  (most vendors don’t take credit/debit cards)
4. Patience 
5.  Make sure you eat breakfast

6.  NO public restrooms some shops will not let you use there restroom 
7.  Make sure if you spot a restroom to write down the street and the cross street that way when nature calls you run for it

8. Try one of the bacon wrap hot dogs with grilled onions
