“Vow To Be Chic introduces an affordable, convenient, and stylish alternative to the status quo, offering dresses from $95 that retail for an average of $300,” Doorey says. “It's a great honor to be in someone's bridal party but it's also an expensive honor, especially when one is young and doesn't have disposable income.”

Doorey says that after being a bridesmaid multiples times, she was inspired to help make the honor more affordable. Doorey previously worked in retail and as a management consultant.

The startup has raised a seed round and will be looking to raise again in 2015.
