About Us

The International Bridal Manufactures Association (IBMA) is a trade association representing all components of the bridal industry. This includes bridal wear, bridesmaids, special occasion, headwear, all accessories, gown preservation and computer services working together for the betterment of the bridal industry. The organization was created 12 years ago and has been active in bridal wholesale trade shows  around the country.

Throughout the years the IBMA has been fiscally sound and has a reserve of funds that the organization wishes at this time to use in part to educate the bridal and prom customers on the perils of buying bridal garments on line from counterfeiting sites.

We have a 5 member board as well as an Executive Director. The membership is almost 100 strong and includes bridal, prom and accessory manufacturers. Bridal media (magazines and websites) are also members. BrideClick has created a website http://bridalbeware.com/ to house and disseminate information collected for the bridal beware campaign from many sources. Our service providers are a committee of print and digital members of the bridal industry and are instrumental in the success of this campaign. Please forward any information you have regarding counterfeiting to hedylapkin@gmail.com. Our goal is to create a comprehensive location to educate brides and prom buyers about the benefits of buying in a full service retail store and perils of using counterfeit sites while using the Internet.

Our Goal is to get Internet shoppers to …… CLICK TO BRICK….And Drive buyers to Retail shops.
