Need a new dress for your friend’s wedding this weekend? Stop by True Adorn Boutique. Forgot to order a gift from the registry? You can check that off your list, too.
When owner Stephanie Ryan opened the second location of her contemporary junior’s and women’s clothing shop (based out of Alexandria, KY) in the Reading Bridal District in April, it transformed into a one-of-a-kind stop for both trendy clothes and affordable and fun wedding gifts.
If you’re in a pinch for something quick and small, options include a delicate gold “Mrs.” necklace or a set of “Mr.” and “Mrs.” shot glasses. If you have a little more time before the wedding, check out the monogrammable options, ranging from picture frames to pillows. One of Ryan’s favorite gifts in the store is a large wooden wall decoration custom designed with the Cincinnati skyline, which you can personalize with the bride and groom’s names, along with “est. 2016” to represent the wedding year.
Besides gifts for the happy couple, True Adorn Boutique also sells merch designed for the wedding party: think Bridesmaid and Maid of Honor mugs and “Bride Squad” and “Wifey” tanks, tees, and hats. The bride herself can even shop wedding accessories here—the boutique stocks custom made jewelry for the big day by N-Line Jewelry Designs.
