Here’s a good Valentine’s Day scenario. It’s one you all know: girl meets boy, girl and boy fall in love, boy proposes, girl accepts, girl plans wedding and finds the gown of her dreams at Target.
That’s right, Target. So maybe we didn’t know the whole story, but we’re thrilled at its ending. After debuting home decor and women’s fashion lines at the fashion-savvy big box retailer, celebrated American designer Isaac Mizrahi will debut eight gowns as part of his wedding collection—all priced around $150. The exclusive bridal line, which will also include cheap-yet-chic bridesmaid’s dresses and accessories for men, will debut at Target stores nationwide on May 1.
We have attached the only photos we’ve found because we decided that not-so-good photos are better than no photos at all. So please accept our apologies. We can tell you that, according to a press release, the dresses will come in white, ivory, and even black, and that a tulle princess dress, a silk charmeuse cowl neck sheath and a silk faille trapunto bell gown are just some of Mizrahi’s handiwork. Sounds fancy, no?
A bride-to-be will also have a choice of polishing off the look with satin peep-toe pumps or lacey high-heel slingbacks. She’ll also have the option to outfit her maids-in-waiting with matching clutches and her beau’s best men with coordinating cummerbunds.
We’re not planning any weddings, but we think any black tie-ready ensemble priced at $150 is worth celebrating—whether it comes in handy for a prom or a gubernatorial dinner. But any brides might want to consider waiting it out until May. If she can make it til then.
Ah, we love to spread good news. And we love Target for making said news-spreading so much easier to do.
