H&M Debuts First Wedding Dress And It Costs Less Than $100

 

Game-Changing $100 Wedding Dress - bride

  • "The mass retailer will be selling its first wedding gown for just $99...both in stores and online later this month, according to a rep for the brand."
     
  • "This will be the first H&M wedding dress sold in a regular collection, although a wedding gown did appear in the Viktor & Rolf one-time collection back in 2006."

Takeaway from Hedgeye’s Brian McGough:

 

This company is good. So good. That much is obvious.

 

While H&M will hardly threaten Vera Wang's iron-clad wedding dress business, the reality is there are a lot of women who will buy a white gown from H&M for that big day. And they’d do it in a heartbeat.

 

There are two factors working in H&M's favor.

  • The company continues to grow its credibility as a fashion leader,
  • Not everyone has the resources (or the willingness) to spend thousands on a wedding dress. 

Get this: The average price spent on a wedding dress last year? $1,211. You simply can’t beat H&M’s $99.
