M&S withdraw online bridal range

Marks and Spencers Withdrawn

I have just heard through an advertising agency that M&S have withdrawn their bridalwear range as of today.  I was more than a little shocked because we at Weddingo have been a keen supporter of the bridal and occasionwear range since it was introduced in March 2007 and have written articles only very recently singing their praises.  The bridalwear range was a new introduction to the M&S portfolio little over a year ago making it all the more surprising.  In fact, you can still read the Press Release from February 2007 announcing the launch on the Marks and Spencers web site.

Well sure enough the image above is what you get when you try and navigate to the bridalwear range today and I afraid we do not have any news as to why the range has been withdrawn at such short notice or whether the removal extends to the M&S stores as well.  We have asked Marks and Spencers for their comments and hope for an update shortly.

UPDATE 24/07/08

Well, I have just had a reply back from Marks and Spencer and here is the response :

Not exactly conclusive and it does’nt explain the sudden wihdrawl but it does look like they have’nt given up on bridalwear for good.

    I am very disappointed about m&s stopping the bridal range as i was in the middle of buying my grooms,bestmans and fathers waistcoats for the big day from there,We decided on the aqua as it is the closest to my bridesmaids colours i could find.The aqua colour is only available online and the bestman who lives in london and is also paying for his own ordered and recieved his waistcoat straight away but when i tried to oreder the other 2 m&s did not have the sizes i wanted,After a telephone conversation with m&s i was informed there would be more aqua available in the sizes i required within 2 weeks.When i checked the website 2 weeks later the bridal range was no longer available,it is coming back in early 2009 and im not getting married until may but what if i cant get the same colour or pattern as the bestmans,i really need that particular waistcoat and colour.I do feel let down by m&s as weddings are stressful enough without being let down by a store as big as themselves,i have to pray it all comes right in the end
