Braselton Promenade: A Bridgerton Fan's Itinerary

Updated: May 17

Dearest Gentle Reader, during the off season the ton has been eagerly anticipating Bridgerton season 3, and with its launch we couldn't help but join in the fun and offer an itinerary for all the Lords and Ladies looking for a proper affair to remember.

High Tea at Versailles

Chateau Elan Winery and Resort

100 Rue Charlemagne | 678-425-0900 |

Without question, every member of the ton should experience Versailles' Afternoon Tea. The loose-leaf teas are of the finest quality, and your party will also enjoy a curated collection of handmade savory sandwiches, sweet bites crafted by the most talented in-house pâtissier team. Partake in tasty tea sandwiches, freshly baked scones, pastries, petit fours, served with preserves, honey, and clotted cream in a stunning grand venue. Versailles' spectacular glass-top atrium provides the loveliest lighting and offers a spectacular setting for your afternoon tea—and the most recent gossip.

Be sure to let your feet wander and explore Chateau Elan Winery and Resort, a resort reminiscent of a French country estate with rolling vineyards and magnificent lawns. It is rumored that the Duchess of Mulberry attempted to hire the Chateau's lead grounds man, but he, devoted to his creation, declined so that you too can enjoy these manicured masterpieces. Secure a patio table, enjoy the sound of the fountain underlying scintillating conversation, play a few yard games, and sample some of the award-winning vintages while on your quest.

There is more than one day's worth of activities to discover at Chateau Elan Winery and Resort. Should your party visit for a getaway, you may choose from various luxurious lodgings, world-class dining, and activities suitable for the whole family.


Fashionable, Sassy & Pampered

We now invite you to another excellent diversion, shopping in Braselton. Your tour should begin in the charming historic downtown for a little pampering. And what Lady doesn't enjoy a little pampering now and then?

The Countess of Elan was recently overheard to say that she will only shop at Braselton's area establishments because of their stylish and sassy selections. This author heartily agrees with the Countess in this matter and would also mention their excellent service and quality fabrics. It seems that Braselton's three unique and locally owned boutiques are all the rage for this season's attire and accessories.

Elements Boutique & Spa

9924 Davis St, Suite 3 | 770-871-1014 | Elements Boutique & Spa

Gentle Society will discover Italian linen, several feminine frocks, and many other exciting spring and summer fashions for the next soiree. While deciding on the season's wardrobe, be sure to receive a lovely hydrafacial at the onsite spa, and leave Elements Boutique and Spa feeling pampered, relaxed, and ready for a full day of shopping and social gatherings.

Naked South Boutique

9924 Davis St, Suite 4 | 770-835-4999 | Naked South Boutique

Ladies of the ton will find fun pops of color paired with classic patterns for a trendy and mature wardrobe. We always expect quality fabrics with unique, artisanal touches including handcrafted jewelry and accessories from Naked South Boutique, but we were also delighted to discover several funny and inspired seasonal pieces that add zest to daily outfits and seasonal party wear.

7330 Spout Springs Rd, Suite A-3, Flowery Branch | 770-967-1300 | Image Boutique

Dear reader, we are excited to note that maxi dresses and the flutter and puff sleeve are back for ladies desiring a soft, feminine look this season. Though it is not located in the historic district, this boutique is well worth the short side trip for an adorable garden party dress as an addition to your closet.


Let us be your Coachman.

Much to this author's sadness, the horse-drawn carriage has fallen out of style, but Braselton does offer a suitable substitute in its rather adorable vintage-styled trolley. On Friday evenings 4 to 11 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. the trolley is available as transport to area attractions and establishments. Or make it a grand affair and rent the trolley for a special occasion.


Fill your belly ...

It is with great relish and much indecision, that your party will choose an evening dinner location. Chefs, sommeliers and brewmasters may be discovered throughout Braselton, and their love for food and drink is apparent by the collection of authentic, locally owned restaurants with such a diverse and international number of offerings. The best choice is to try them all while in Town.

... then fill your dance card.

After experiencing a lovely day fit for royalty, we have at last made it to the reason most of us are here: the signature celebrations that ensure that this season will offer Society plenty of opportunities to mingle, make that perfect match, and to enjoy the ones that we hold most dear. It is our greatest desire that you enjoy your stay and the connections made in our charming town, and we will see you this season for a promenade around Braselton.
