If you’re thinking about buying a wedding dress in the next few months, you might want to start early.
Retail experts say bridal dress supply chains are seeing disruptions due to the coronavirus.
Some bridal companies in the US import nearly 90% of their products from China.
But several factories in China are still being disinfected or waiting for travel restrictions to be lifted so workers can return from their lunar new year travels.
And it’s not just the factories.
Fabric mills, trucking companies and air freight are all being affected by the coronavirus causing disruptions to the entire supply chain.
Bridal gown retailers are hoping the impact is temporary.
But for now they just have to wait and see.
