Everyone is trying their hand at the bridal market it seems. J. Crew recently opened their first boutique dedicated to the budding bride but a few other unusual suspects are also getting in on the fun.
I guess retailers are realizing that the wedding industry is recession resilient — a tough economy will never stop people from getting married or having weddings (although they might be scaled down a bit). The Limited recently began offering a small selection of bridal gowns exclusively on their site. The one pictured above is my favorite and retails for an affordable $298. Urban Outfitters intends to introduce its wedding wear in 2011. Anthropologie’s collection which should include gowns retailing between $1,000 and $5,000 will also be available soon (official launch dates haven’t been released).
Exciting stuff, huh? Tell me, who do you think is next? The Gap? H&M? Do you think that some retailers should stay out of the bridal game? Leave me a comment with your thoughts.
