Real Bride: Laura & Otto at Beau Rivage Palace Lausanne

Belle en Blanc Lausanne

Today i’d like to share with you the wedding of our beautifully stylish bride Laura, who found her dream gown with me in September last year, for her wedding on the 25th July 2015 in Beau Rivage Palace Lausanne and Portes des Iris.

Laura’s wedding has been already proudly published on the wedding dress designer’s website, Augusta Jones, and i would just like to share this with you as well. The interview with Laura was as follows below:

****************************************************************************************************************

The Big Question

Otto made sure he had 2 things ready before the proposal. He asked both my Father and Step-Father for my hand, and he also had the ring! Other than that he did not know when or where he would propose. The day after Otto asked the approval of my parents, we drove to the Italian part of Switzerland. Upon arrival we took a boat tour, and then took a lovely walk along the shores of Lake Lugano. Otto was strangely wearing a backpack, but told me it was to hold our rain jackets, in case it would rain.

On our walk he made me climb numerous hills and then back down again. Finally, we arrived in the gardens of a beautiful hotel where there was an elevated terrace overlooking the park and lake. There were 2 tables, one for us and one for another couple who were just leaving. Otto left for a few minutes to order some champagne and left his suspicious looking backpack on the chair. Anyway, before I knew it, my boyfriend of 7 years, was on his knee telling me the sweetest words and asking THE question.
Shop Till You Drop

After having tried on multiple dresses in numerous European cities, I was so pleased to find THE dress in the town we were going to be married! When I tried on the Skyler dress, I instantly knew it was the one. It had the romantic feel, the lace, the buttons, the train, the open back… everything that I was looking for in a dress! The store had the most amazing light and atmosphere. It was a truly special moment.
A Perfect Day

Everything went so smoothly. The temperature was perfect, the sun was shining, the guests were happy, and we were happy! I hadn’t slept very much the days before, but somehow I had an overload of energy that day and was just happily floating on a cloud.
Wise Words

Don’t sweat the small stuff – chances are, no one will even notice.

Don’t forget to take a moment during the day to just relax, look around you, and realize how fortunate you are to get married and that all these people came from near and far to share this day with you.

Do leave on your honeymoon right after!

4th anniversary of Belle en Blanc

It’s already our 4th Birthday!! How quickly time passes by… I remember as yesterday the big rush and excitement before the official opening of the boutique Belle en Blanc on the 16th of November 2011. We had so much success since, and just so many amazing brides, guests, new friendship formed, and network booming!The past 4 years have been a lot of hard work, endless hours spend on research, PR, marketing, bridal markets, and all whilst also becoming a mother! I really don’t know how i managed to pull it all together, but it is certainly my biggest passion, and i can’t imagine doing anything else!

Just to remind you all how it went, i enclose a few photos of our fabulous artist Tony Kunz who captured the essence of the opening night and the beauty of our gowns, and models who presented the catwalk for the guests.

We have dresses over 500 glamorous brides since that day, and the boutique hosted some of the most recognized bridal designers.

However, we have changed our focus and went from all-British to more internationally based designers. Being Polish myself, i am thrilled to announce that we have been very successfully working with a Cracow based polish designer, ANNA KARA, and her collection is just out of this world! think stunning delicate laces, open backs, floaty fabrics, which give a floaty, fresh, bohemian bridal look.

We have introduced also Israelian desinger RIKI DALAL HAUTE COUTURE, and the dresses are designed for sexy, confident and certainly a very fit bride 🙂 Low backs, open sides, very plunging necklines, and most exquisite lace combinations possible. This collection is not to be missed!

Additionally to that we are of course still very happy to be continuing with amazing AUGUSTA JONES, whose collection has been the biggest hit since the opening of the boutique, with one year only we have had 50 happy Augusta Jones brides! A record for any of our designers, and well deserved as Augusta’s dresses are perfectly cut, with very interesting combination of moder, classic and a little touch of sexy look, giving our brides a dream body and feminine style they love so much.

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.

BRAZILIAN WEDDING IN VOGUE

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
