Royal Wedding Gown replica debut!

This time last week, the world waited in anticipation to get the very first peek of the long awaited "royal wedding gown" to be worn by Kate Middleton. Now, one week later, the world is still buzzing at the unexpected, simplistic, yet ultra elegant gown that Kate chose to wear as she married her prince. The bridal industry is stirring with excitement over this gown, and designers are creating duplicate gowns as we speak so that any bride can have this beautiful look at a reasonable price if she chooses.

Madeline Gardner, designer of Mori Lee wedding gowns, and her crew gathered around the TV in their studio at 5:00AM last Friday to see the first glimpse of Kate's wedding gown as she stepped out of the car and walked toward the cathedral. Madeline immediately began sketching and only a few hours later had a replica made that was debuted at St. Patrick's cathedral in New York city and featured on Inside Edition that evening.

J&B is so excited to announce that we were chosen as the first store in the country to debut this gown outside of New York City and it will be shown exclusively at J&B from 9:30-5 this Saturday, May 7! The gown will retail at $1,000 and will be a part of J&B's collection and available to order in approximately 3 weeks. Thank you Madeline, and the entire team at Mori Lee for allowing us this tremendous opportunity!
