REAL BRIDE: SOPHIE at Portes des Iris

Just have a look at our delicate bride Sophie, who got married this year, in July at magnificent venue Portes des Iris, in Vullierons.

Sophie choose a classic, elegant and timeless style dress called Marylin by our very admired designer, Augusta Jones. We slightly changed the neckline, and really gave the personal touch to Sophie’s gown choice, by making the strapless gown, using a lovely satin duchess to make the bodice, and soft, floaty silk organsa skirt to give a romantic, light and airy overall look.

As you can see on the images, the wedding theme was soft, blush and pastel colours, and Jenia Sanguinetti, one of the most amazing wedding photographers ever, made some really fabulous pictures during the famous golden hour, so much loved by many photographers.

We love the final look and are very happy to be able to share yet one more of our lovely, happy Belle en Blanc brides of 2015 🙂

« I’ll tell you a secret! When we are expat like me, one of our best friend to find good addresses is « google ».

After a short journey on it, the boutique Belle en Blanc became obvious. Indeed, after browsing all the laudatory testimonies, the pictures of the dresses, getting more beautiful one after the other, I have clearly made my choice. This is going to be my first Lausanne address and also the last.

Completely charmed, I sent an email and received directly an answer back to book an appointment. The first and good feeling was confirmed.

Welcomed by Olga, the owner, I discover a place dedicated to the bride: an elegant and feminine decoration which highlights so perfectly all the choices of the gowns from various designer and the fitting room, but more over, the splendid view of the lake and the alps, have made of this boutique the choice of my heart, really. Just need to find my dress now.

However, I have to wait a bit more as Olga is first asking me a few questions about the style of the wedding and my wishes for clothing. I want to have a dress in ivory, which is unique and reflects a bit of fancy tones, as well as rustic and bohemian, which is Kelley and I whish for the day.

Equiped with these details, Olga selects a few gowns. The fabulous adventure of trying dresses has now started. Olga leaves me some space to take time and to look at myself in the mirror and also tries to identify what I like or dislike in each gown. They are all beautiful, but I still can’t feel the “wooow” effect.

Nevertheless, I am still on my cloud and comes the last gown to try, which is the dress from a polish designer, Anna Kara. By just looking at it, I directly notice the difference: the ivory colour is more obvious and its main fabric, which is in tulle, is simply splendid. It gives the rustic aspect I was looking for. I try it on with a lot of excitement. Olga has barely finished to close the last button of the back, that I spontaneously say “I love IT”. It is the one for sure, this is the one I am going to wear at my wedding. The dress is moreover comfortable; I can even move and dance. Olga is as well convinced; she noticed my switch of expression and posture. I just became at one with the dress.

Even though Olga is professional in her advices, she knows as well how to take time to celebrate happy times. She then offers me a glass of champagne to cherish and memorise this moment full of emotions.

Then, she takes my size in order to make the dress bespoke and to wear it fitted. She assures me that the dress will be delivered on time, as she chooses her designer not only for the quality of their designs and fabrics, but also for their reactivity and respect of deadlines.

Indeed, three months later, Belle en Blanc calls me to try MY dress. It is just a delight to discover it again and we proceed to small adjustments. A week later, it is with my precious dress that I embark on a plane to the USA, where I get to celebrate my wedding. On the day, I felt like a real princess and my husband compared me with a Greek goddess. He also found “us” (the dress and me) beautiful! Enjoy! »

REAL BRIDE: MANON IN SEXY ANITA

Today we are so thrilled to introduce to you another happy Belle en Blanc bride, Manon, who got married in May 2015, in the region of Neuchatel.

When i met Manon, we immediately had a very good connection, and very quickly found the dream gown she was looking for, although didn’t realise that Anita is going to be The One. Manon came accompagnied by her 2 sisters and the most warm, charming and loving grandmother any girl can dream off.

We met again two weeks after to confirm the choice, but the heart wants what the heart wants, and Anita was the obvious winner and the only choice really. Manon looked and felt amazing on her wedding day, and the famous now dress by Augusta Jones really enhances her feminine shape, whilst keeping the overall bridal look effortlessly elegant to fit her bohemian style, romantic wedding 🙂

Have a look for yourself. I send my big kiss to Manon and her bridesmaids, who also were tremendously stylish, wearing our collection of multi-wrap bridesmaids gowns in Mint colour.

“Dear Olga,

My deepest gratitude to you for making me feel like a princess on my wedding day. Your talent and instincts were remarkable and I was so grateful to rely on your guidance for my complete look on my big day. Andreas LOVED my dress and said it was simply perfect.

I felt beautiful and comfortable through the celebrations and guests said I looked like a Princess Grace, which is a compliment especially for you at Belle en Blanc!

Mille Mercis for all your attention to detail- sewing the extra sparkle, getting on the lace top just perfect, trying on veils…. You were so patient and generous with your time and care.

I will never forget these magical try on sessions with you!

All my love and gratitude, Samantha ”
