“More than 60 new businesses have opened in Old City so far since 2021, and many of them are wedding-specific businesses, or businesses that offer wedding services,” said Old City District Executive Director Job Itzkowitz. “This event highlights independently-owned businesses that can help you prepare for your big day.”
“I opened Lovely Bride Philly in Old City in 2013,” said Lovely Bride Owner Ivy Solomon. “The neighborhood was, and is, the perfect fit. The mix of old historical charm with modern independent boutiques makes it a great destination to spend the day. Bridal shopping is an experience so this allows our clients and their guests to come to us, have a relaxing meal nearby, stop in some cute clothing stores, and really make a day of it.”
“Old City has historic charm but new age wedding planning. It is the perfect area to plan your dream wedding,” said Hitched Showroom Manager Emma Coats.
“We opened in Old City because we absolutely love the atmosphere and charm of this section of the city,” said JM&Co. Owners Jacqueline Ryan and Mabree Burris. “You should visit Old City if you are looking for the best in the business when it comes to weddings and events. This neighborhood is full of experts and it’s wonderful to be surrounded by fellow ‘friendors’ and the most talented group of people when it comes to making someone’s day unforgettable.”
