We know that picking the right wedding dress for you requires decision after decision. The process is different for every bride, that’s why our bespoke approach to the bridal experience is one we’ve stuck with for nearly half a century.

Here’s a bit of guidance to get you started in your search to find the perfect dress for you. We’ve gathered a few of our #realchicbrides stunning images and sorted them on here by designer, with a link to the designer’s page so that if the style speaks to you, you can click the designer’s name and keep exploring. Remember, this is just a tiny sample of the gowns that we have in store and the designers whose collections we carry. For a list of upcoming trunk shows, click here.

A few weeks ago we chatted with Catherine about “Three Do’s For Brides On Their Wedding Day,” who better to give some tips and tricks she’s picked up after years of talking to brides?

Today, she’s telling us three things she things bride’s shouldn’t do on their wedding day. We won’t call them “don’ts” because every girl has her own way, but we will say that if you follow this advice you’ll make your day just that extra bit less stressful – don’t say we didn’t warn you!

  • Avoid making a drastic change to your appearance right before the wedding. If you’re going to try a new look for your wedding, go for it way in advance. You don’t want to chop off your signature long locks a week before the wedding and then go into a panic because you don’t look like you.
  • Try to avoid salty foods the day before. Salty foods can be comforting if you’re nerves are running a bit wild, we know the power of a bag of chips, but avoid salty food because you’ll retain water and be a bit bloated.
  • Make all your accessory decisions in advance. Avoid leaving yourself accessory options to decide on the last minute. Have your details picked out in advance so that you can sit back and enjoy the day without worrying over your earring choice in your precious few hours.

Join us this weekend for the Romona Keveza Trunk Show at Chic Parisien.

Few things could top a weekend trip to New York City in the spring, unless of course you’re there to attend Bridal Market. It was a whirlwind trip, but we certainly made the most of the three-day event to bring you, our Chic brides, the latest bridal styles from top designers from around the world, including Jenny Packham, Mira Zwillinger, Anne Barge, Ines Di Santo, Romona Keveza, Naeem Khan, Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier and Lazaro.

Our action-packed schedule was a dazzling display of crystals, pearls, tulle, and lace. The runways were nearly as gorgeous as the gowns themselves, as many featured creative themes including Enchanted Forest (Naeem Khan) and Once Upon a Dream (Jenny Packham). There were many jaw-dropping moments, and we can’t wait to bring the very best of these Spring 2015 designs to Chic Parisien.
