A wedding dress is one of the most important things you'll ever shop for in life, so knowing all your options for finding "the one" is of utmost importance. If you have the advantage of living in or near Los Angeles—or maybe plan to make the trip to shop for dresses—you're in luck, as there are plenty of bridal boutiques to choose from.

That said, having a lot of options can also be more than a little overwhelming, so we did some research and found the best wedding dress shops in L.A. Whether you are looking for a dress worthy of a princess or are more of a boho bride, there's something in the City of Angels for every bride-to-be's aesthetic.

Among these fashion girl–approved wedding dress shops are the best department-store bridal salon on the West Coast (in our opinion), indie shops in Venice Beach, and more.

Keep scrolling to familiarize yourself with the 12 best bridal boutiques in Los Angeles. The next step is saying yes to the dress. (Sorry, we had to.)
