Coronavirus will impact this year’s prom and wedding season.
Four-out-of-five bridal gowns and prom dresses are manufactured in China. Due to coronavirus quarantines, several dress factories are shut down. A shortage looms in dresses for weddings and high school proms.
One dress retailer in the United States, David's Bridal, guaranteed they can fulfill every customer order. They have 300,000 gowns in storage. The CEO said in a statement, (quote) “We know how stressful a delayed order can be to a bride. I'm here to unequivocally say that every customer will have the dress of her dreams in time, before her event date.” (PR Newswire)
