It was only a matter of time. Following in the footsteps of e-tailer Net-a-Porter, whose online shop for brides-to-be launched in February 2010, Shopbop.com will unveil its Wedding Boutique on March 14. "We have a strong inclination that our girl wants to wear something that provides her with fashion and quality, yet also wants a cool and alternative place to shop other than in department stores or bridal shops," said Shopbop fashion director Kate Ciepluch.

Prices range from $195 to $5,000, and cater to a fashion-forward bride -- whether she's a "risk taker" or a "beachy free spirit."

In addition to accessories, lingerie and gifts from Giuseppe Zanotti, Lauren Merkin, Loeffler Randall, Eberjey, Hanky Panky, Cosabella, Dannijo and Rachel Leigh, the curated boutique will also feature editorialized content to help brides conceptualize styles, themes and a color story for the big day.
