This Valentine's Day, Urban Outfitters is launching a bridal collection. It's called Bhldn (note to brands and bands: can we please stop with the vowellessness? It got old after MSTRKRFT, and that was 2007), and it was created to fill "?a space that no one is filling?We have a lot of shorter dresses, lots of color and prints and no optic white dresses." It may not be Monique Lhuillier, but it still ain't cheap: UO wedding gowns will cost from $1,000 to $4,000. Would you wear it down the aisle? [Huffington Post]
