As an Award Winning photo booth rentals provider in central Pennsylvania, we are blessed and fortunate to meet great people in the Wedding “business” that share our passion, not only for a quality product, but for service and commitment to their clients.
We are pleased and proud to introduce you to a new Bridal Shop in Central Pennsylvania. Tiffany’s Bridal Boutique opened in February 2016 and is located just north of Ephrata in Stevens (Lancaster County).
Tiffany Rupert is the owner of Tiffany’s Bridal Boutique and has served in the United States Navy until 2008. Upon returning to the area from her naval service, Tiffany began working part-time in a local bridal store in Ephrata. She worked there for three years until the owner decided to retire and close the shop. In that time, Tiffany developed a passion and dream to open her own bridal store. In Tiffany’s words, “she fell in love with the business and everything about helping making a bride’s wedding day special and memorable.”
So, in February of this year, Tiffany’s dream and passion became a reality with the Grand Opening of Tiffany’s Bridal Boutique.

Tiffany offers some suggestions for a bride-to-be consider first when shopping for a Wedding Dress
Is there a recommended time for shopping and choosing a Wedding dress?
Tiffany recommends purchasing a dress no less than 6 months away from your Wedding date. This will give the dress time to be ordered, delivered and allow for proper alterations to take place. Ideally, Tiffany suggests brides-to-be should start shopping for their dresses about twelve months from their Wedding date.
Are there any best practices in choosing a Wedding dress?
Tiffany recommends to her clients to try on various styles of wedding dresses. She feels, many times, brides come in with pictures on their phones of dresses they think they might like and many times, end up choosing a dress that is completely different.
Tiffany also suggests it’s best to keep an open mind and just try on many different style options. Dresses always look different on the hangers and on the models in the pictures. Also, keep your party small when you bring people along to shop for a dress. Too many people, can lead to too many opinions and can just be downright overwhelming, not only the bride-to-be, but everyone involved. Keep it small.
Lastly, take pictures wearing the dress if you are permitted. Go to a few different shops. Don’t just buy the first one you think “you love.” In Tiffany’s experience, she has encountered brides who bought a dress too soon, only to fall out of love with it, then find themselves in a rush to find a new dress they actually want to get married in.
