Monique Lhuillier’s Sublime Spring 2013 Bridal Collection

April 23, 2012

Whilst we may always be able to rely on Vera Wang to push the boundary for bridal design (the queen of bridal couture will forever be the first choice for daring brides), there is one designer known for her ethereally beautiful, dreamily embellished and flawlessly tailored gowns and that is Monqiue Luillier.

2013 is no exception! Inspired by the pure fantasy of weddings, each and every design is fit for a princess. Whatever shape or style you are looking for there is a dress for every bride in this collection, with a variety of necklines, sleeve lengths and shapes. There is also a distinct nod to every key bridal trend for Spring 2013 – shimmering metallics, flattering illusion necklines, tantalising textures as well as…..

With 16 years in the industry it is easy to see why Monqiue Luillier‘s inimitable style is a firm celebrity favourite – and she is indeed rumoured to be the designer of choice for Jessica Biel for her upcoming nuptials to Justin Timberlake!

Which one is your favourite? Every time I look at this collection I choose a new favourite!
