I’m starting to plan for dress shopping and have seen a lot of posts about bridal salons NOT allowing photos. I’ll need to try things on and then sleep on it before making a decision, so I don’t even want to visit any salons that don’t allow photos. Boston brides- which salons let you take photos and which did not? Thanks!

I know you are against places that don’t allow photos, but if you go ask them for designer and model names and you can generally look up pictures.

I bought my dress at blushing brides in Peabody. It was an hour drive from where I live (central ma), but they didn’t say anything to my sister who was taking pictures of every dress I tried on. I bought a sample dress and I LOOOOOVE it. I did bring it home with me, as I will probably shop around for alteration quotes.

Hi! As a former bride myself – it’s super helpful to be able to take photos while you’re trying dresses on! I’m a wedding coordinator in the area (http://www.jessicahennesseyweddings.com) and this is a *great* question.
A lot of the bigger shops with the very high-end designers won’t allow photos. However, two shops I highly suggest that have a great selection of gowns AND allow photos are:
Cristina’s Bridal in Andover: https://www.cristinasbridal.com/
Bella Bridal Shoppe in Amesbury: http://bella-bride.com/
And if you’re looking for high-end designer dresses at a lower cost, Vows in Watertown is also great and allows photos!
Good luck and happy hunting, enjoy it!
