If you’re planning a wedding in North Carolina, be sure to check out Ida Lou Weddings. Owner Ashley Morra explains that Ida Lou Weddings “is the first solar operated bridal boutique and wedding suite in the South (and possibly the Country).” Morra’s passion for all things Southern, vintage, and bridal led her to fix up a 1976 airstream and turn it into the cutest, most environmentally friendly bridal boutique this side of the Mississippi. With a background in high-end retail and the bridal industry, Morra is sure to help you find the vintage, or vintage-inspired, dress of your dreams.

Based in the Raleigh-Durham area, Ida Lou Weddings offers a variety of services for brides-to-be. Planning an outdoor wedding and don’t have a good place to get dressed on your big day? Call Ida Lou Weddings, and you and your bridesmaids can get ready in the comfort of a charming vintage airstream. Still looking for the perfect dress? Check out Ida Lou’s collection of 1950s and mid-century gowns or the vintage patterns that Morra uses to make custom wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, and prom dresses. Ida Lou Weddings partners with local bridal boutiques to help brides find the perfect dress in an intimate setting. The Ida Lou airstream trailer also makes a great backdrop for engagement or wedding photo-shoots. It’s bright teal and white exterior and delightful fringed awning will make your photos pop.
