Need some tips on starting the wedding dress try-on process? I have some great advice HERE.
1. LONGER SLEEVES ARE A-OK
Opting for a longer sleeve or a statement sleeve adds balance to a dress if you are wanting to show off skin else where. It is also the perfect solution for those of us who don't really want to show off that part of our body. Our French wedding dress designers are the go-to girls for this style which means a timeless look that is also bang on trend for 2019.

2. FROM 1-PIECE TO 2-PIECES
The 2-piece wedding dress look has become a bit of a fashion staple in wedding dresses over the last few years. Most notably from Laure de Sagazan. If you think it's a little too fashion forward for you, think again. These options below are just the tip of the iceberg and for the coming year are the totally tempting style choice for a unique or low-key bride.
3. LESS LACE
Meghan Markle (now the Duchess of Sussex) confirmed it when she too opted for an embellishment free, Givenchy gown. You can have a simple and classic wedding dress that looks both timeless and modern.
Even Laure de Sagazan, the princess of lace, has opted for a pared back offering for the coming year in 2019. Don't worry, she still has plenty of insanely gorgeous lace options - however if you are wanting pure and simple, we still have a selection for you!

4. EMBROIDERY IS THE NEW LACE
For those of you looking for embellishment that isn't beading, and perhaps you don't really want lace either. Don't despair! The French are at the forefront of fabric technologies and this includes embroidery and applique techniques giving an all-over embellished effect for a bold and striking look.
For a captivating, fashion forward wedding dress don't go passed these amazing designs.
5. JUMPSUIT JEWELS
Also known in the French world as Le Combinaison (we like this term a lot better!)
If you're foregoing a big ceremony for an intimate get together or elopement or just aren't into dresses, we've got you covered. Jumpsuits and pantsuits are comfortable, figure flattering and totally on trend.
Pants paired with a romantic lace top is dressy enough for a modern ceremony, while a tailored white pantsuit is perfect for more casual nuptials.
