NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Looking to capitalize on the many women who started 2014 with rings on their fingers, leading bridal retailer, David's Bridal, debuted a new television advertising campaign that unveils the truth about weddings: it's all about the dress.
The advertising campaign, created by New York Advertising Agency, DeVito/Verdi, highlights the emotional connection between a bride and her gown, consisting of two thirty-second commercial spots entitled "Luck" and "Groom."
In "Luck," the bride recounts the events that brought her and her groom, and ultimately her and her dress, together. As she makes her way to and down the aisle she recollects: "If I hadn't decided to work late, if I had gone for coffee up the block instead of down the street, our paths wouldn't've crossed, our eyes wouldn't've met, and I wouldn't be wearing this stunning strapless mermaid gown."
"Groom" is presented from the perspective of the husband-to-be as he waits for his bride at the altar. Referring to himself as the "invisible man," he admits that this day doesn't belong to him, thinking to himself: "[…] the wedding is all about the bride and for the bride, it's all about the dress."
"Nearly one-third of all couples get engaged between Thanksgiving and the New Year, making it the most important time for both the bride and our business, which is why the industry calls this timespan Bridal Christmas," stated Brian Beitler, Chief Marketing Officer for David's Bridal. "Our new commercials show the bride we understand just how important her dress is to her and we are there for her with styles that will win her heart all over again."
"Luck" started airing nationally on December 26. "Groom" rolled out the following week. This is the retailer's first new set of brand commercials since David's was purchased by private equity firm Clayton, Dubilier & Rice in October 2012.
