« 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! »

Thank you again for your kindness and professionalism.
We are so pleased to share with you the results of our very sunny and glamorous, but busy day at the shooting with Elen from Emo Photo and our glorious wedding gowns at Montreux Palace this summer.
We had a truly great time, got creative, and above all made some really good friends 🙂
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.
Not so long ago we were styling our beautiful Brazilian bride Thais for her wedding, at least this is what we thougth!! This not so long ago was in fact in early 2013, and when we heard back from Thais to help style her sister’s wedding, we realised, once again, just how quickly time passes!
Thais wore a understated silk mousseline floaty and sophisticated gown “Bacal” by Stephanie Allin, and we styled it with Caroline Castigliano sparkly belt. Stephanie Browne, our most appreciated bijoux desinger, offered to do a lovely bespoke headpiece with birdcage veil, and we polished the look with Diademe Bracelet and Diademe Earrings. The most stylish brides of Belle en Blanc choose either Jimmy Choo or Christian Louboutin stunning footwear for thier wedding day, and Thais opted for the latter, with gorgeous red bootoms, so recognisable! See how the entire wedding preparation and meticulous detailing came together to form the most wonderful day for her and Phil here
Our lovely Thais will come to see us in the boutique on Saturday, but we could’t help and share this wonderful video from her so very stylish and elegant wedding that took place in her home country, Briazi, on the 6th of July 2013.
We really love to hear back from you, our gorgeous brides, and there is really never too late to share your videos/photos with us here at Belle en Blanc,
Happy Wedding Anniversary Thais, xoxo
Here are a few pictures of our special day…what an amazing day it was!! The dress was a massive success and received so many complements. ..
Thank you so much for all your help. I hope our paths will meet again some day…
hello there… we’ve been quiet, but extremely busy for past months, but we have some Very Special news and announcements to share with all our lovely brides who already got their dresses for next year, as well as all our future brides, who booked in for appointments. Shhhh…. you have to be a little patient, and let us finalise some details, but fits, we are uuber excited to share with you the results of our absolutely breathtaking Winter Wedding Inspiration Shoot we had a pleasure to participate some time ago.
One of our good friends, Lucie from Bliss Wedding and Events Designer, called in with this fantastic idea for winter wedding inspiration. We met, and things immediately started falling into place: the dress was a must to be this stunning Caroline Castilgiano “BeLoved” silk organza and handmade cotton beaded lace, with full skirt and stunning back detail! This was a perfect choice for the winter wedding celebration, and our brides love that gown- its a true stunner and show stopper not only for winter wedding.
We feel that with bridal season and fashion changing so quickly, this Winter Wedding Inspiration will truly show a lot of brides just how much fun and individuality you can create around winter season. The choice of beautiful hotels and locations is never ending in the Swiss Alps, and we, at Belle en Blanc have been seeing increasing number of ladies, who dont want a traditional summer wedding, and are opting for fun, white winter fun with cosy scenery of fireplace and very often Christmas ambiance in mountain locations!
The design of our inspiration shooting have been done by Lucie at Bliss, and Jennia from Jenia Sanguinetti photography couldn’t have done a better job with watchful eye and her camera lence catching up every single stunning detail of the setting, the dress, the bride herself, and all details that make up for unique and stylish wedding this one is! Big thanks to the Alpina Hotel and Spa in Gstaad for eagerly agreeing to our shooting. For any bride, this place is truly a bridal paradise 🙂
