Monique Lhuillier’s Bliss collection is shown mid-year and not during bridal market, which makes going to see the new collection at the Monique Lhuillier showroom in NYC a delightful mid-year treat! (On that topic, if you missed our Bridal Market posts, read our re-cap here)

It was wonderful to see Monique’s newest collection yesterday.  Her Spring 2016 collection seems to celebrate femininity whilst maintaining sweet, soft lines that define elegance.

We’re ecstatic to give you one of the first previews of this collection!



Drop waist and horsehair trim…yes please!



A total twirl-worthy gown! Loving the softness of the skirt paired with an embellished deep v-neck.



And the back…time to show off those toned shoulders!



Classic silhouette, Chantilly lace…


…with some signature dainty Monique details on the bust!



This slightly fluted shape is sleek, refined and elegant!


And the back features one of our favorite bridal trends (that’s definitely here to stay)…illusion lace!


Sleeve-loving brides everywhere will be in awe of this one! Full-length sleeves parallel the fitted body of the gown.


This Chantilly top is uber feminine and provides coverage while still looking perfectly stylish.  And best of all – it is an add-on and can be removed.



And the gown minus the removable Chantilly top…still ultra glam!


Monique stuns again with another killer horsehair trim ball gown…but wait, there’s more!



Check out the lace,sequin and pearl detail under the tulle on the top.


More illusion lace! Princess seams grace this fitted gown.


Lots of brides lust for a deep V back…this dress has it!


There’s nothing like a classic lace & organza! So timeless!


Did we save the best for last?! 🙂 This watercolor-inspired gown is absolutely jaw-dropping!



The back is absolutely dreamy…just a work of art! And say, we did predict printed dresses would be a recurring theme amongst upcoming bridal collections…read all about it in our Bridal Market Trends post!


Dresses from the Bliss 2016 collection will be in our store later this year…until then, we’ll be waiting (and likely re-visiting these pictures!)
