If you were watching the “Today” show this morning, then you heard the big news! “Today” show anchor, Savannah Guthrie, announced her secret weekend wedding to longtime boyfriend, Mike Feldman, on live TV! The blushing bride, who also announced she’s four months pregnant, shared a photo of her special day with millions of viewers, looking absolutely radiant in a lace Monique Lhuillier A-line belted gown.

Beloved by some of the biggest names in TV and film, Monique Lhuillier has been the go-to choice for many brides, including Reese Witherspoon, Giuliana Rancic, and Carrie Underwood. It’s hard not to feel like a princess in a Monique Lhuillier gown, famed for her flattering silhouettes and creative use of lace accents.

The Monique Lhuillier Fall / Winter 2014 Collection, which Chic Parisien will preview during a March 21 – 22 Trunk Show, has something for every bride. Many of the gowns feature Chantilly lace and white or ivory silk organza. From simple to elaborate, the gowns come in varying lengths and colors, but all are absolutely stunning.

Even as we previewed the gowns ourselves, it was hard to pick just one that defined the entire collection. We find this incredibly exciting since preferences vary from bride to bride, and this diverse collection definitely answers the call when it comes to finding the perfect gown for each individual bride.

Previewing the gowns online simply won’t do them justice, so we invite you to join us in store this Friday and Saturday for your first-hand look at the gorgeous Fall / Winter 2014 Collection! We look forward to seeing you!

In describing this latest collection, the famed fashion house said:

Marchesa’s Fall 2014 Bridal Collection draws inspirations from the allure of The Secret Garden. Exquisite handmade floral appliques cascade down flowing tulle skirts and fitted re-embroidered lace cocktails. Light, feminine silhouettes are draped in point d’esprit while dotted pearls accents illusion tulle creations

Hidden layers of chantilly and corded laces peek out from flowing skirts and crystals glisten atop delicate lace caplet sleeve gowns. Marchesa’s Fall 2014 collection of signature silhouettes lends charm and romance to every bride.”

We can’t deny that Marchesa has mastered the art of illusion tulle. A Marchesa bride looks as though she is floating as she walks. The way the light dances with each lace detail and floral applique is absolutely breathtaking. With no detail overlooked, a Marchesa bridal gown enhances and flatters every silhouette. It’s no wonder that the designer dresses some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
