In early 2012, Katie May Neu designed her younger sister's wedding gown. The gown was sexy and hugged Kristine's form with an entirely open back, which was unlike anything in the market at the time.
Katie May proudly posted an image of her sister in her Princeville wedding gown on her then style blog, which was pinned on Pinterest and quickly went viral. Within a couple of days, the image of Kristine in Katie May's Princeville gown had been pinned tens of thousands of times from brides-to-be desperate to wear this non-traditional backless gown.
Katie May was born.
After a joyous four years of growth in bridal, Katie May launched bridesmaids, introducing an elevated assortment in crepe fabrication and modern silhouettes not seen in the bridesmaids industry before.
Women were not only purchasing gowns to wear in a wedding, but to attend weddings, galas, and other special events.
With the proven sales success of this division, Katie May's partners asked for more, which allowed the company to launch into the contemporary market late in 2018. We are proudly now shipping our products to Nordstrom, Revolve, Intermix, Bella Bridesmaids, and other to brick and mortar stores across the country.
Katie May is now proud to announce that they are going to servicing brides directly through their online sample gown process as well as experiential shopping experiences staged throughout the country starting in 2020.
Grateful. So damn grateful. Thanks for being a part of our journey. Let's keep rocking it.
