Monique Lhuillier’s Bliss Collection at Paperswan Bride

It has always felt a little unfair that Kiwi brides-to-be have to travel across the ditch or even further to sample the delights of designer bridal fashion. Well, no longer is that the case thanks to Wellington’s chic little bridal boutique Paperswan Bride (if you need a memory jog of just how chic this boutique is, take a look here…..heavenly!) who have just added, one of my favourite designers, Monique Lhuillier’s Bliss label to their already gorgeous collection of gowns!

Monique Lhuillier at Paperswan Bride

Monique Lhuillier (just in case you haven’t seen her collections on CVB and don’t already know) is a huge name in both womenswear and bridal having dressed celebrity brides such as Reese Witherspoon, Brittany Spears and Pink – it doesn’t get any more high fashion than this! Following in the footsteps of fellow designer Vera Wang and other big names; Monique’s diffusion line ‘Bliss’ showcases the same feminine and sophisticated design aesthetic that you see in her signature collection, but at a price that is accessible to all brides (with prices under $4000NZD) Designed for the timeless, modern bride the gowns are romantic and luxurious featuring beautiful Chantilly lace and tulle in blush as well as shades of white……
