Emerald City Gowns is a treasure trove for the practical green bride. We set out to create an alternative to the traditional bridal salon, where you can leave today with a designer gown in hand or order something made-to-order from an affordable, domestic atelier.  

Owner, Emilie, got the idea for the shop while helping her best friend find a wedding gown in a fabulous consignment boutique in Seattle. Realizing this service was lacking in the Bay Area, she got to work opening her own consignment boutique. In April 2011, she opened shop with a small storefront on San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley, California. The following year Emerald City Gowns relocated to the Fourth Street Shopping district, where you will find us today!
