Cicada Bridal

Walking into most bridal stores will bring on tulle-induced panic. Racks are cluttered with dresses, all with price tags topping four digits and all with the same basic look: giant skirt, long train, strapless, beaded bodice. If you’ve spent your entire childhood planning a wedding where you dress like a princess in a gown that matches the multitiered wedding cake, then go ahead, but Cicada Bridal understands that not all of us want to look like something out of a Disney musical. Cicada’s collection tends toward the simple and elegant, and offers custom work that’s more affordable than you might expect. And not to worry: If you’re determined to look like a cupcake flouncing down the aisle, Cicada can do that too. LAURA ONSTOT 1121 First Ave., 652-2434,
