If you’re looking to feel like a princess – not just on your wedding day, but on the day you find your dream gown (and who doesn’t?) — look no further than The Bridal Collection in Centennial. If you live in the Denver area, the drive down south is completely worth it, and you can make it an entire afternoon of bridal fun at The Bridal Collection.
Semi-private appointments are available via the website, which include a bridal stylist to help you find your dress. Or, you have the option to upgrade your appointment for an additional fee. Enjoy champagne, snacks, and a beautiful, private bridal suite with your wedding party.

Brilliant Bridal Boutique offers a unique off-the-rack option for brides. Its inventory of dresses is always changing, as selected gowns go home with brides at the end of the appointment. This is a great option for anyone seeking their dress close to the wedding date, as there are no wait times for processing, production, and shipping. The boutique also provides flexible payment options, allowing people to pay in installments or layaway.
Private appointments are available via the website and highly recommended, but you are also welcome to call and check availability for a same-day appointment.
During your appointment, the bridal stylist can also help you find the perfect accessories to accompany your dress. Brilliant Bridal Boutique prides itself on providing a low-stress, affordable, and comfortable experience for brides. The stylists are trained to help you put together the perfect look – all within your budget.
$2,500 – $15,000
For a designer wedding gown, Little White Dress is the perfect stop. Housed in a historic church, restored and converted to a spacious wedding dress shop, Little White Dress offers a beautiful pampering experience. A stylist will help you find your perfect silhouette and style during your semi-private appointment.
Its gowns are all high-quality, priced between $2,500 to $15,000. Keep in mind, you might want to make an early appointment (nine months to a year before your wedding date), as some designers will require more time for gown production. However, Little White Dress also offers sample gowns, available off-the-rack, for those with a shorter time frame.
Little White Dress accepts appointments online. When scheduling, brides may choose between a regular appointment, a sample gown appointment if seeking an off-the-rack option, or an accessories-only appointment.
Under $1,000 – $3,900
For a VIP shopping experience at no additional charge, visit Casa Bianca Bridal. All appointments are completely private with no limitations on guests in attendance (many bridal shops will limit guest count to under three guests including the bride). Champagne and other beverages are also available for you and your guests.
Casa Bianca Bridal is partnered with LA Premiere, Moonlight Bridal & Val Stefani, and Paloma Blanca & Mikella for a wide range of styles at different price points. The website hosts a gown photo gallery, where a majority of gowns available in the shop are shown. This is a great feature for brides to browse dresses in advance.
During your appointment, you may also find bridal accessories including veils and jewelry. Your stylist will work closely with you to discover the perfect wedding look and will recommend items based on your preferences.
Under $1,000 to $4,000
Colorado brides will love Blue Bridal Boutique. Self-proclaimed chill girls and boho romantics, Blue Bridal Boutique excels at nailing the effortless Colorado-girl style. The store is filled with lace, sparkles, and romantic charm. Most gowns are priced around $2,000 and in-house tailoring is offered.
Private appointments can be booked online, but Blue Bridal hosts trunk shows several times a year. Trunk shows exhibit a full range of sample gowns from a specific designer, and the featured gowns can often be purchased at a discount. If you’re hoping for a gown from a certain designer, attending a trunk show is a great option.
Blue Bridal also offers a unique, mini appointment for brides to discover their preferred silhouette. If you aren’t sure where to start, this is the perfect opportunity. The appointment will focus more on shape and style than specific dresses, giving you a better idea of what to look for during a bridal appointment.
