Our Lady of Lace: Monique Lhuillier

  Monique Lhuillier is an outstanding designer and we are always excited when we get new dresses from her. The boxes come and as we opened them everyone gathers around to see what these beautiful gowns look like up close. We are never disappointed! I asked our stylists to share what our brides have said about Monique's dresses and why they sought her out at anna bé. Here is what our wonderful stylists have said: 

"Most girls that  love Monique are drawn to the lace that she uses. It is super delicate yet intricate, and exudes a feeling of luxury!  I LOVE Monique Lhuillier,  her dresses bring out the best in a bride! Her designs are always feminine, a bit sexy, flattering, and well made (which is something that I as a stylist notice and appreciate)! Monique stays in our shop season after season because her collection continues to evolve with what the anna bé bride. You will never find Monique resting on her laurels, she is constantly out-doing herself!"




" I think the best attribute of Monique is her timelessness, always classic and refined with just a little modern edge. Her fit is also amazing, every gown slims and flatters. "


On that note we'd like to announce that we are having our, once a year, trunk show for Monique Lhuiller Oct 4-6 at anna bé! 

"Monique Lhuillier is the premiere name in bridal and a favorite of celebrities. Gowns begin at $4,500. The collection connects beautiful lace, romantic silhouettes, intricate beading, tailored corset and skirt options, and light airy dresses. All trunk show purchases will receive a 10% incentive. Appointments are required for this event."

We hope to see you there!



Elizabeth Fillmore visits anna bé

Today is the first day of our trunk show for the fabulous Elizabeth Fillmore her collection of gowns that balance romance, sexiness, and even a touch of bohemian are the perfect look whether the wedding is in the city or the mountains. And every bride that purchases during the trunk show will receive a special incentive! 

Due to all the excitement we thought we 'd ask the designer a few questions since she will be at anna bé today potentially styling a few lucky brides. We asked three questions and here are her answers: 

 What is your favorite dress of the collection? 

"Tough call on the favorite dress-but Chloe wins!" 

 Chloe in all her glory!

Chloe in all her glory!

What inspires your collections?

"The last collection was inspired by a mix of couture silhouettes with soft floating fabrics. Creating a balance between the whimsical & light couture silhouettes and clean sophisticated gowns. One of the standout collection gowns is made of stain chiffon that looks like feathers floating and other dresses are made of 1920's chantilly laces which offer a soft romantic & feminine vision" 

What did you wear for your own wedding? 

"My wedding was in November 1999 - at the very start of my bridal collection we were married in NYC in a turn of the century mansion - so my gown really suited the venue 7 mood of the room. Though today I would wear something different - so hard to choose, but definitely soft and floaty!"

We are so excited to have Elizabeth with us for both days of the trunk show and we hope to see you all there!
