• Shopping for bridesmaid dresses can be tedious, but it’s a lot more fun at Alexia’s Bridal Boutique in Raleigh during their Mimosas and Maids event, which goes through the end of June. Brides can enjoy bottomless mimosas while shopping for their maids’ dresses, and they will receive a free bridesmaid dress with the purchase of their bridal gown.
