Exciting news! Following on the bejeweled heels of its successful sample sale this past January, BHLDN is offering newly-betrothed ladies yet another in-person shopping opportunity: a pop-up shop at the Walnut Street Anthropologie.
Friday, May 2 Thursday, May 1, through Sunday, May 4, BHLDN's dreamy gowns will take over the flagship Anthro's top floor dressing room area, while a selection of bridal jewelry, headpieces, and sashes will glitter just beyond the fitting room entrance. You don't need an appointment to shop the accessories; however, BHLDN reps tell us that reservations are strongly recommended to guarantee you a time slot to try on gowns. (Appointments will be held 11am to 6pm each day of the pop-up; book your spot here—quickly!)
Other things to note: 1) Gowns at the pop-up will be from BHLDN's current SS14 collection, so expect to pay full price. (If the gown is full price right now on the site, you can probably expect to see it at the pop-up.) 2) Should you find "the" gown that makes you weak in the knees, you can order it that day for delivery to your address within a week. 3) Accessories can be purchased on the spot. 4) A small selection of wedding decor, bridesmaids gifts, and stationery will be shoppable on Anthro's main store level. 5) The pop-up is strictly bridal gowns—no bridesmaids' dresses. Also, no shoes or lingerie (sorry, ladies). 6) Veils, which can be custom ordered along with the gowns, will be available for try-on purposes.
*Update 4/22*: The pop-up has been extended to now include Thursday, May 1.
