Lead for Rention Marketing - Weddington Way

Based in San Francisco, CA, Weddington Way offers millennials a new way to shop for weddings, featuring an exclusive collection of fresh + modern bridesmaid dresses. Weddington Way designs and manufactures their own dresses - meaning no middle-men, no markups, and styles crafted with detail and intention that you can't find anywhere else. Weddington Way pioneered a community-centric shopping experience that lets friends shop together online in a virtual showroom. With its technology-first approach, Weddington Way is a breath of fresh air in the wedding planning process.

In 2016, Weddington Way was acquired by Gap Inc. and continues to run as an autonomous brand under the leadership of founder Ilana Stern, who reports to Sebastian DiGrande, executive vice president, strategy and chief customer officer for Gap Inc.
