The owners of celebrated bridal boutique anna b� {LISTmember} are launching a new concept to the bridal world. a&b� bridal shop {LISTmember} is set to open in the lower highlands neighborhood in Denver on September 20th.

a&b� bridal shop is concepted around the idea of connecting. a&b� connects emerging designers with brides, bringing many bridal and accessory lines to Colorado for the first time including: Catherine Deane, Sarah Seven, Katie May, Rafael Cennamo, Rebecca Schoneveld, Houghton Bride, Enchanted Atelier and Amanda Judge.

And it�s not just connecting brides with new designers, but expanding the definition of �bridal�. a&b� bridal shop brings unexpected pairings of separates and unique accessories, and draws inspiration from ready-to-wear.

Owner Breanna Doll states, �There are so many talented designers out there but finding something unique can still be so hard for a bride. Who wants to risk their wedding dress purchase to Etsy?� a&b� bridal shop brings unique styling while still allowing brides to try the dresses and not miss out on exceptional service.

Plus, what a&b� bridal shop recognizes is that supporting up-and-coming designers isn�t just good for the brides, it�s good for the bridal industry. a&b� bridal shop helps new designers such as Katie May and Rebecca Schoneveld, who previously had limited reach, expand to new customers and is proud to be one of the first boutiques in the country to carry the lines.

a&b� bridal shop is an exciting concept that pairs emerging design with practical price point. Because as owner Anna Walsh stated, �At anna b� we had a lot of brides who wanted to purchase from us but ultimately fell in love with a dress out of their reach. We knew that there had to be a way to expand our reach because we didn�t want to limit great design and great service. With a&b� bridal shop, we can show brides that there�s no need to shop online and miss out on the experience. a&b� bridal shop will make the shopping easy, fuss-free, cutting-edge and affordable.�

a&b� bridal shop officially opens Friday, September 20th. Appointments are required. During opening weekend, all brides who purchase will receive a limited-edition letterpress print. Plus, designer Katie May will be making an appearance on September 21st to debut her new collection.
