There’s no denying that Monique Lhuillier is at the top of her game: Not only has the renowned designer conquered the bridal and ready-to-wear markets, but she’s found success with accessories, fine jewelry and tabletop collections, too—and now she’s adding stationery into the mix.
Today we stumbled upon some incredibly valuable information that any bride who plans on flying with her wedding dress should read up on ASAP. Destination brides, we’re looking at you…
We have some exciting news to share from our friends over at La Belle Mariée Bridal, the French-inspired dress shop that opened its doors in Bucks County last year: They’ve just completed a major expansion!
Due to the boutique’s growing inventory and overflowing appointment books, the La Belle Mariée team decided it was time to branch out—and now, the shop has nearly doubled in size, with additional dressing rooms and plenty more space for you to twirl around in potential wedding gowns.
It’s been exactly one year (literally to the day) since Philly-based Free People first launched its inaugural bridal collection, FP Ever After. It all began with just 15 gorgeous pieces, and now there’s a whole slew of beautiful gowns, delicate lingerie and fine jewelry for you to scoop up for your Big Day.
And they’ve just added even more options to the bunch: In honor of FP Ever After’s first anniversary, the brand released 12 new styles that you’re sure to love, especially for your boho-inspired summer wedding.
Here’s a local vendor team that’s constantly catching our eye with the gorgeous, inventive creations they come up with: Tanti Lina and Stefanie Kitchner, the floral preservation experts behind Hana Willow Design. (If you remember, they’ll turn your dried-up bouquet into a work of art you can display well after your Big Day.)
For years we’ve raved about how creative Tanti and Stefanie can get with your florals post-wedding, but their latest venture proves just how crafty they can really be: They just launched a new line, called Alternative Floral Art, aimed at couples looking to swap out real live blooms for something a bit more unique.
If you’re still on the hunt for the white dress you’ll wear down the aisle—and especially if you’ve had your eye on Nicole Miller’s gorgeous gowns—we have some news you’ll want to take note of: The designer’s bridal collection is now being sold exclusively at the Manayunk storefront; they’ll no longer be carrying bridal at the location inside the Bellevue in Center City.
