My journey as a bridal designer and planner has helped me learnt the art of listening. I envision how they want to look like on their big day over casual chats and let my imagination run free. Recently, I met up with a young lady I had known since she was about 7 years old.
Today, she has blossomed into a beautiful young woman and ready to wed next summer in Sweden. There was a certain je ne sais quoi about her.. something truly effortless and beautiful. I knew immediately after listening to her story that I would call her the "parisian bride"
On being a parisian bride and here I am trying to sum it up into 4 points... In the way I think would resonate well with someone who appreciates beauty in the most natural form:
~ Less makeup & natural radiant skin
~ Comfortable & flowy gown/dresses ( no corsets and go bra less!)
~ Clean hairdo ( not too much hairspray please)
~ Simple and yet elegant veil
I continued my discussion with her and my mind was already preparing the mental moodboard on the dress cut, the material, the color and the antique lace trimmings.
As soon as we ended our meeting, I returned to my office and started my work on the moodboard and sent it across for her confirmation & she said " I'm so happy you got me!"
Voila! We shall start our journey to put together the parisian bridal look that she has always dreamt of.
As my mood continues to "feel" the energy of a parisian bride, we were presented with the royal wedding of Prince Harry & Meghan Markle 3 weeks later. It was an event that I was waiting for as I was wondering what she would wear & to my excitement, she was to me what I would call a parisian bridal look! The exact definition that I was trying to sum up in the above 4 points I mentioned and is it truly one of the most beautiful bridal look.
I will continue my work on the parisian bridal look and I believe this is definitely going to stay.. We are moving into the era of minimalism and effortless beauty. It is so fresh and so evergreen to just have that certain je ne sais quio in you on your big day!
