Our Story

Weddings are fun. Getting dressed up is fun.  But getting dressed up for your own wedding?  There's nothing like it. At Liberty and Lace, our goal is to create a laid back and casual approach to bridal. As you celebrate this important event, we'll help you feel like the most beautiful and true version of yourself. We want Liberty and Lace to be a space where brides can be themselves, find their dream wedding dress, and have a really fun time along the way. We celebrate confidence and individuality, and if you feel like practicing your dance moves and droppin’ it low, go on girl!

We opened our doors in October 2018 but had our name decided months prior. We define Liberty as the state of being free, with the power to do as one pleases. Lace is obviously a fabric, but we prefer this definition: to fasten, draw together, to entwine. Put these two words together and you get a little combo we seriously adore: a bride who’s independent and enjoys the power of her own choice, but also knows the heart-swelling feeling of being drawn to that special someone. We think that being true to who you are is the most beautiful thing, and what better day to do that than on your wedding day.


About J + K

Our friendship started a number of years ago in Manayunk -  we met drinking cocktails and doing high kicks at a local bar. These days, our adult friendship includes a lot of support, encouragement, and love for each other. We also happen to work really well together, and when we realized there was a need for a one-stop shop for brides in Manayunk, Liberty and Lace started to take shape (over cocktails and high kicks, of course).

We both find our drive by connecting with people and sharing our passions; we've learned the hard way that being unhappy and unfulfilled just aren't options. We’re also big fans of love, all things bridal, and happily ever afters. We want to help brides fall in love - with themselves and their dress - and help create special memories that'll last 4ever.

We promise big hugs, good tunes, great selfie lighting, and always bubbly. We can't wait to meet you, and we are so excited to bring this magical little bridal shop to Manayunk!
