Jacqueline’s Bridal vows to open in square

Jacqueline's Bridal

Jacqueline’s Bridal shop, which currently has a location in Lexington, is readying to move its shop to Wellesley Square in the space at 555 Washington St. that appliance company Miele vacated last fall.

The business offers evening gowns and prom dresses in addition to bridal gowns and accessories such as veils and lingerie. Jacqueline’s, the brainchild of designer and beauty expert Jacqueline Hormann, features well-known brands as well as its own.

“We love Wellesley and we are very excited to be in this beautiful location,” Hormann says.

The family’s store, which sits at the intersection of Grove and Washington Streets, once the home of Seiler’s Restaurant, was opened by John Walter Anderson and has since been the home away from home for many members of the family. Vickie Anderson Mancini wrote in the event program that the family has adapted over time to various fashion trends from circle pins and charm bracelets to bold gold jewelry and chains inspired by the A-Team’s Mr. T back in the 1980s.

The trophy also made its way to the neighboring Marillac Residence, where a 103-year-old woman (alive during the 1918 Red Sox World Series win) posed with the trophy.
