Old Town Warrenton in Virginia offers different shops on its historic Main Street. You can walk along its beautiful streets and find unique stores and variety of restaurants. The town is laid out in such a way that walking to the shops and sights is quite easy. As a local wedding planner in Warrenton, VA, I decided to explore some stores and check out what Warrenton offers for wedding needs since I love the idea of promoting local businesses.
I visited four stores that offer different types of products but what they have in common is that all are local and family owned stores where customer service comes first.
The first one was Hartman Jewelers, this local jeweler offers diamond engagement rings and other fine jewelry. You can find the perfect gift for your bridesmaids, groomsman, mother of the groom, mother of bride and for your future spouse.
For the guys that need some help choosing the perfect engagement ring an expert engagement specialist will help you choose the diamond that will perfectly fit your future bride´s personality and your budget. They also offer custom jewelry, so you can create a one-of-a-kind engagement ring for your bride to be.
Latitudes Fair Trade Store. This store specializes in unique, high quality, handcrafted and fairly-traded products from around the world. What I love most about Latitudes Fair Trade Store is that when you buy any of their products you are giving a double gift, one for the person who will receive the gift and one for the person who made the product.
In this store, you can choose the perfect outfit for your wedding events (bridal shower, brunches, bachelorette party, etc), bridesmaid’s gifts or a unique gift for a newlywed couple.
Sherrie´s Stuff. It´s an arts and crafts supply store that offers hand painted, handmade, inspirational, folky, fair trade, prim, vintage goods.
For your wedding, you can find the perfect unique (not mass produced) handmade vintage wedding signs at great prices. In fact, if you plan ahead of time you can order customs signs. Sherrie is a gifted artist who goes out of her way to personalize and customize pieces for her customers.
The Fabric Emporium, it´s the perfect store to visit for the newlywed couple who desire to either redecorate their current place or just decorate their new love nest. They offer everything to make your home beautiful and comfortable. From designer fabrics, wallpaper, furniture and accessories to custom design services. A great idea is request gift cards from this store as a wedding gift.
After you finish your shopping you can stop by any of the restaurants and enjoy a meal, an appetizer or just a beverage. Have fun and don´t forget to leave your comments if you visit Old Town Warrenton to shop for your wedding!!!
