Wow, wedding dress shopping is quite the experience... You have to make an appointment, everyone calls you 'dear,' and you have a big/important decision to make. It feels crazy to spend so much money on something you will only wear once. However, everyone I know who has gotten married says it's worth it! In all of my internet searching, some of the most incredible gowns I have seen are from Laure de Sagazan. Unlucky for me, you cannot purchase her gowns anywhere in the US. Just look below at the gorgeous details and silhouettes:
Luckily, Net-A-Porter carries some of the designs of my other favorite French bridal designer, Rime Arodaky. Even better, they now carry a selection of her gowns at LOHO Bride here in San Francisco! I went to LOHO last weekend and had such a nice experience; I highly recommend making an appointment there if you are shopping for a wedding dress!
