Seeing a growing market of brides who want anything but a standard wedding dress, Ann Taylor started offering a selection of dresses for brides and bridesmaids looking for something different.

For those of you have a second wedding, we highly recommend checking out their wedding dresses in particular, it surprised us just how many of them were perfect for second weddings based on their simplicity and price points.
Who is Ann Taylor?
Most of us assume that Ann Taylor is the name of the genius behind the designs. But, in fact, “Ann Taylor” is actually what started the company.
Ann Taylor isn’t a woman but the dress that made a dream come to fruition.
Legacy & History
According to Ann Inc.:
“Ann Taylor began in 1954 with a dress and a dream. When Richard Liebeskind opened his first shop in New Haven, CT, he named it “Ann Taylor” after the best-selling dress style in his father’s own store. That dress represented his vision of the modern, stylish American woman. With that vision, Ann Taylor has grown from a regional chain to an iconic brand with 242 full-price and 122 outlet stores across North America.”
“At ANN INC., WE GET WOMEN. Real women live ever more complicated lives. They juggle more activities, play more roles and carry more expectations.
But what women value is what they have always valued: connecting with others, making smart choices, looking and feeling great. Living life fully means women choose to play all their roles with confidence and style.
That is why we’re here.
For more than half a century, we have evolved with the needs of real women who live full, active lives. Our values are her values. We get that a woman expresses herself through what she wears – at work, at home and at play.
To meet her needs, we design pieces for her life and her changing roles to help her look and feel confident and beautiful. We create rich experiences that connect with her wherever she is, inspire her style and simplify her choices.”
