Did you know that one of the top wedding dress designers is located right here in #HipNJ? In our latest #HipNJWeddings segment, we visited the showroom of Justin Alexander Bridal in Pine Brook!
#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino (who will be rocking a JA Signature dress at her upcoming September nuptials!) sat with creative director Terry Hilferty to talk about what every bride needs to know while shopping for the most important dress she’ll ever wear.
The #HipNJ bride is “sophisticated,” explained Terry. Justin Alexander has found that the New Jersey bride gravitates to the finer laces or some other type of special treatment. Trending now is a cap sleeve or pop-over jacket to transform the dress, creating two different looks. What the #HipNJ bride wants, she gets!
No matter your style or budget, there are many lines to choose from. Justin is the core line, portraying a vintage and timeless look. Signature is the higher-end line off of Justin, having more intricate detailing. Sincerity features a girl-next-door feel that is effortless to wear. While the Sweetheart is the most affordable line, it still upholds the same romantic character as her counterparts. Finally, their newest line Lillian West features gowns that are simplistic yet sexy.
A current concern of the wedding industry are counterfeit dresses. These dresses are manufactured and sold out of Asia. Crooks are stealing Justin Alexander’s copyrighted images and posting them on their websites. Thinking they are getting a beautiful bargain, horrified brides are receiving dresses that don’t come close to the quality that Justin Alexander and other reputable designers provide.
