Most Memorable Movie Brides!

Kristen Stewart in Twilight

As little girls many of us dreamed of what our weddings would be like… Who will I marry?  When will I get married?  What kind of wedding will I have?  And of course, which dress will I wear?  Earlier this week, here at the store, we were reminiscing about our childhood fairy tale wedding dreams and we ended up at which movie bride we all wanted to be!  Definitely, Maria from Sound of Music is a strong favorite, Princess Bride was too… but in the end it was Belle from Twilight that took the cake!  So here is a compilation of some of our favorite movie brides… What were your childhood wedding dreams?  Did you have a favorite movie-bride?   Tell us about it, we always love to hear!

XOXO

This week, we’re busy packing dozens of dresses as we will be visiting Puerto Rico for our annual Monique Lhuillier Trunk Show.   We’ve been focused on preparing for a destination event, so we thought it would be fitting to share some wedding dress tips specifically for brides who may be considering a destination wedding.

  1. Pack it Up: You want your dress to look perfect… So, when selecting a dress for a destination wedding, go with something that packs easily.  Lace gowns are often an appropriate option – both for an island destination, if that’s what you fancy – and because they don’t wrinkle!
  2. Remember it’s a Carry-on: When you head to the destination where you’ll be saying your I dos, you’ll likely carry your gown on board the plane in a garment bag, so think about the weight of your gown.  You’ll want something lightweight to make the travel process easier.
  3. Dress of Your Dreams:  While choosing the right dress for the location is a key factor, it is most important to WEAR the dress of your dreams!  We’ve worked with many brides who walked down a sandy aisle on the beach in a ball gown and conversely brides who exchanged their vows in ballrooms dressed in slim silhouettes… in the end, it’s all about how you feel in “The Dress”

Destination weddings are absolutely fantastic… so as we always say, enjoy the moment and enjoy the journey to finding the dress! In the meantime, for some inspiration here are some of our favorite real brides wearing Monique Lhuillier at beach weddings! Happy Travels!

XOXO

PS Our destination event is in Puerto Rico is this upcoming weekend Sept. 27 – Sept 29 at Caribe Hilton, click here for more information or message us via our Facebook page for your appointment!
