Fear not, brides of D.C. The shop at 1523 Wisconsin Ave. NW is still a bridal boutique — just no longer Hitched, which closed March 31.
Wrote the former occupants (since 2008): “Thanks to you we are signing off with a heart full of memories. We will always be happily ever Hitched. With all our gratitude. — The Hitched Gals!”
Modern Trousseau, now with eight stores in the U.S., is fixing up the space. As with Hitched, its products have been seen in The Georgetowner. Modern Trousseau’s Australian-born designer, Callie Tein, the company says, “evokes classic couture while expressing a vision of modern style and sophistication. The hallmark of Modern Trousseau is customization.”
Meanwhile at the corner of 30th and M Streets NW, there is another revolving door. The aptly named Angolo Ristorante Italiano takes over where Cajun seafood restaurant Pier 2934 was until three months ago. The new place is open, and the backyard outdoor seating is being reconstructed in time for warmer weather.
