Bridal Market Recap Part I

April 28th, 2015 | (0 Comments)

There’s nothing like a trip to New York. It’s the city of Carrie Bradshaw, of Fifth Avenue, of Fashion Week – and then, there’s Bridal Market. Bridal Market is the Fashion Week of the bridal world.

Twice a year, the industry, and the Chic Parisien team, descends on the city for a few days of non-stop appointments, runway shows, presentations and showroom visits. It’s an overload of tulle, lace, beading, trends and all things wedding, but we aren’t complaining; there’s nothing better than spending time around beautiful things and we are so lucky to spend our work days surrounded by beautiful designer dreams.

We’re happy to report that we’re back in the store, as inspired as ever, and have brought with us all the trends that we’ll see throughout the rest of 2015 and 2016.

We’ll be sharing some of the hundreds of photos that we snapped over the course of the trip – seriously, we couldn’t help ourselves, there was just so much beauty! But first, we wanted to talk about the big trend at Market: sexy dresses. 

Over the past few years we’ve seen a swing towards a sexy wedding dress and we took note that it isn’t stopping. Low back, unlined bodices and plunging necklines were some of the ways designers are vamping up the wedding gown.

I Love You More Than Pizza

April 15th, 2015 | (0 Comments)

#RealChicBride Ashley is half of the couple behind Brickell’s Stanzione87 – a pizzeria serving the most authentic pizza Napoletana in town. This long-time couple finally tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at The Kampong, a hidden botanical garden in Coconut Grove.

The bride wore a chic Monique Lhuillier and held a simple, and striking bouquet of tiny white flowers. And what a handsome groom! We are positively swooning over these amazing photos captured by the endlessly talented Katie Lopez. Don’t they look so in love!?

They didn’t serve pizza at the wedding, but quality food was clearly a priority for this foodie couple – they started with oysters and ended with a family style Italian meal followed by a polenta cake!

Do you have a few minutes? Good. Because you’ll want to take your time to soak up these beautiful images of #RealChicBride Andrea’s wedding in Cancun.

Andrea visited us in Coral Gables from Ecuador and was then wed in Cancun, Mexico wearing Marissa Bridal. We love the beachy, fun spirit in these amazing snapshots of her big day.

Are you a #RealChicBride? Share your photos with us! We love sharing photos of our dresses on your special day! Email – Xoxo.
