I wore Monique Lhuillier to my wedding. I definitely had a formal (NYC) wedding, but I probably picked one of the more simple Lhuillier gowns, which I think most brides would assume would only work for garden type weddings.  In my opinion, it’s all a matter of styling and accessorizing. I think you could definitely wear any of the styles you listed for a beach/gazebo/afternoon/outdoor affair. Instead of getting a long veil, for instance, opt for a birdcage, a fingertip, or just flowers in your hair. For jewelry, I would go for pearls vs. bling.

My dress is different from the Lhuillier styles you’re looking at, but here are a couple of pictures anyway:

Here’s my Monique!  I’m adding a crystal sash but otherwise this is it!  I still have to wait another month or so for it to come in.  Hope this helps!

@rkbecker – I LOVE that dress, I’m just glad I can’t afford it or I may be a two dress bride!  Can’t wait to see pics so you should definitely post as I haven’t actually tried it on, but love everything about it!

Needless to say, great choice!

Thanks guys!  It was a disgusting amount of money that I am embarrassed to admit to!  I originally purchased “Elle” for just over $4,000 and decided it was everything I didn’t want, so returned it and spent another $2,000 or so on Magical.  But that includes the belt too!  I was so distraught about spending that amount of money that I actually didn’t even take pictures!  Sigh.  I’ll be working a long time to pay it off!  But I can’t wait for it to come in and I’ll post lots of pics when I get it next month!

I was a Monique bride!! I think my pics are too large to post (just tried and it failed, and I’ve had the same problem before)… I wore the style “Parisian” I love ML!

Scarlet bride here 🙂

The sample was a bit big on me but just got mine in last week and it is GORGEOUS in person!

Just looking at the pictures there is such a huge difference in one that fits right.

Hi ladies!

I will also be wearing “Scarlet.”  We bought the 4 inch wide gold Monique sash and I’m not sure how to tie it?? Should it be in a bow/knot, front/back, etc.?! I’m planning to only wear the sash for our Catholic wedding ceremony but remove it for the reception.  I’ll also be wearing a simple cathedral veil with lace trim only around the floor.  If any brides have pictures of similar dresses w/sashes I’d love to see them!

Thanks in advance for the input!

@jmb584…I think we are dress twins!  Did you wear the Edie?  I did but modified it a little (ivory sash and I made it strapless).  You look gorgeous in it!  I also had a formal NYC black tie wedding and felt perfect in my dress.  

 

I can’t upload my pro pics so pardon the quality of this photo.  It was from when we were taking pics on the cobblestone streets in Tribeca and one of my bm’s snapped this one.

@marlie: we ARE dress twins! It’s nice to meet someone else who wore Edie- it’s a gorgeous dress, especially in person. You look beautiful!
