Weddings in Paris – Part 1

Paris-Wedding-Dresses

Notes from the Wedding Lady {on location in Paris, France}

  • Happy to see bridal gowns in all sizes.
  • White still the most popular for brides along with off white.
  • Lace is still very popular for gowns in all the right places.
  • Many first time brides opting to make a statement in red, gold or various shades of pink
  • Second time or mature brides wearing white whether it be all lace pants with matching lace blazer in all colors as well as white or tea color.
  • Jewelled belts very popular in pastel colors as well as solid white or cream.
  • Veils will always be a must for some brides, but also other head pieces are trending as seen in photos above.
  • Bridal gowns are very slim sheath style with long trains or shorter. As well as mermaid style and the ball gown shape. You see tea length gowns, long slip gowns with elaborate bolero jackets or capes. Many whimsical short dresses and A-line Jackie Kennedy type short dresses with or without sleeves.
  • Bridal party do not seem to wear all the same color or style. They mix it up more. All in different styles and colors.Paris-Wedding-Dresses-Part-2
  • Traditional pearls are still popular but also roped of diamonds and pearls in the hair you see and larger sparkling earrings and always a bracelet.

It was wonderful to see a bride stop traffic in the busy Champs-Elysees with her groom posing as she crossed the roads and her photographs yelling instructions as they shot in front and behind with horns blazing.

I also saw another bride being photographed along the River Seine…wearing a long trailing white gown and her husband in white slacks, white open shirt and sky blue blazer whilst bride had a matching sash around her waist…….
