Paris wedding dress


It's been a while since I wanted to take a photo of this very beautiful wedding dress shop located boulevard Raspail. Tonight, on the way back from my office, I finally did. Looking up on the web, I found out that it belongs to a designer called Monique Germain, who, apparently has been in this business for over 30 years. Have a look at her website, I'm not an expert, but I'm sure she's very talented. BTW, thank you very much for your help on tomorrow's theme day. I have 24 more hours to make a decision...

  1. Ok,Paris is definitly a city of love, I have no other choice, I have to admit it.

    First? First for the first time.
    First to go to bed too.
    Firstly your.

  2. Does the wedding dress mean there is a love theme in the air for tomorrow?

  3. I checked the designer website and fell in love with the Renoir dress, very chic and creative.
    Despite that, when I got married I chose a much simpler style, but very elegant.

    What about you Lynn, I wonder what style you choose when you got married? Traditional? Romantic? Intrepid and creative?

  4. Is Eric hinting about something? I hope we will all be invited.

  5. What a pretty dress - very winter wonderland! Alas I am always a bridesmaid, never a bride.

  6. Oh, that is a lovely dress. :) I am liking this theme. I confess, that during my one and only week Paris...I took picture of a wedding dress. It was in a shop window near Carre Rive Gauche. Perhaps a photo of a couple kissing on a bridge says Paris? or an art studio?

  7. I like the "Edimbourg." Elegant.

    I look forward to theme day Friday. I'm not prepared for this month, so I'll participate in March. But I can't wait to see what you come up with, Eric!

  8. I liked Edimbourg the best, too, Petra.

    I know you didn't mean THIS Lynn, Monica,but I'm answering anyway!! I wore an off white suit by French designer, Tierry Mugler.Ah, the French.
    I think most of us on this blog have the disease called francophilia.Now if I had only decorated the tables with my collection of Eiffel towers......

  9. Excellent perspective in this shot. The dress is very elegant, and the angle and the B&W enhance the sophistication of the subject! (Or at least, it looks good to me)

    As to theme day, if you want to get away from the Eiffel, then I say either the Louvre, or Art, or Cafe dining. (Not much help, eh?)

  10. Merci!

    Very beautiful.
    I love the link :o)

    ReplyDelete
  11. The B&W makes this an elegant piece!
    And it's fun to "window shop" through her website.
    If I was "walking down the aisle" again, I think I'd go for "Paris". And ooo les bustiers look fun!;)

  12. Thanks for the tip. I have four daughters and now I know where to get wedding dresses. ;)
    Excellent photo as well.

  13. Nice tip...You also made me realise that I forgot the name of the wonderful createur I bought my wedding dress in Le Marais.....I'd be curious to know if she still designs some! WIll need to check!!

  14. There's not a girl alive who doesn't love looking at wedding dresses, Eric. This was an inspired choice.

  15. Phx-Cdg I'm glad you told us what your dress was like. Oh Lá La Tierry Mugler... very chic! You must have looked very pretty in it.

    I was curious about Lynn's dress because somehow I think she would chose something peculiar and slightly different. She must be doing some shopping of her own back in the UK for she hasn't showed up here yet today!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Perhaps she has eloped with Michael ?
    They're very quiet, tous les deux !!

  17. Waou ... the love theme is in the air for today ... great!

    I usually don't like very much things around wedding (no, I don't ...) BUT I find this dress and the others, on Monique Germain's website, really beautiful.

    I don't know why, maybe because it is here on PDP, related in my mind with yesterday : all the great comments about Paris and its Love inspiration ... I do think so !

    Nice feeling !

  18. This picture just reminded me - over these past two days, NOBODY mentioned haute couture as a symbol of Paris. Mon Dieu! What has happened then???? I did pass by Chanel and the lights were still on...

  19. he he i'm here! I was somewhat... tied up...;)

    For my first wedding, i had a traditional, silk, ivory dress with a hint of lace. It was elegant Princess, in my opinion. Large wedding all the trimmings, one tiny pretty bridesmaid and one tiny pageboy, who both wore ivory and navy blue (yes Monica, the navy was VERY unusual at the time). For going away (leaving for honeymoon to the Caribbean) i wore a plain pink suit with white gloves and pink shoes and hat to match. Hey we should have a wedding photo theme day. Those who are not married could post an outfit they wore TO a wedding!

    My second wedding was simple with just two guests. I had a white short (not too short!) dress, quite simple but still elegant. White court shoes. For going away to the Seychelles for honeymoon, a white skirt with little white top and a big, sweeping white hat and open toe shoes.

    For my third wedding i wore... no i'm kidding! lol just the two. Ooh i love wedding talk! However, i must away now, as i am being missed and called back....;) he he, M. Benaut....wouldn't YOU like to know!....

    ReplyDelete
  20. oh Lynn I love how you describe your weddings! he he I wonder if I´ll be saying something like this in the future "for my second wedding I wore..."
    I think a photo of you with the pink outfit would be precious: pretty in pink!

    You lucky girl, two honeymoons, one in the Caribbean and the other in Seychelles!!! Not too shabby!
    My honeymoon was in Paris, so I guess I was pretty lucky too.

  21. Talking about paradisiac places, I think Michael is in Bali M.Benaut.
    Perhaps he did elope with somebody?!

    ReplyDelete
  22. The weather in Bali is blissful at the moment, Monica, if only you could be there....;)

    I'll try to do the pink pic at some point! It was indeed, not too shabby, especially the first wedding.

    You will be saying that at some point, my dear Monica, you will. My only advice is... don't make it too soon.

  23. So, ah, Lynn...did you buy your wedding outfit at Virgin Weddings near Embankment(closed now)?

    ReplyDelete
  24. lol Phx! I don't know that establishment so the answer is... no. I bought the first confection at a bridal house in Chobham, in Surrey. Oh the fluff and pomp !

    ReplyDelete
  25. Right! Probably barred from entering. ( BTW,it was owned by Branson).
    Put a picture of your fluff and pomping day on your site.

    ReplyDelete
  26. lol I will! Have to find a pic first - think they're in the loft. Barred from entering indeed. Pah!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I look forward to the excitement as I wait for the page to load tomorrow !!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Phx I can see why this Virgin Weddings had to close. They probably had to bar every girl that showed up at its door. No clients left then I suppose.

  29. When I wed, my wife's sisters were snarky because my wife looked "as if she was poured into her dress" and they were overweight. The dress fit very, very well, from my perspective. The eleventh commandment for a man: Thou shalt not comment on a wedding dress at a wedding lest though be chastised no matter what thou sayeth.

    ReplyDelete
  30. And Jeff, that comment goes for everything in your marriage, especially if she asks you if her butt looks big. Just ask Mr. PHX.

    Looks like I got Monica to see it my way this time, LYNN!!!!LOL

    Me , too Glenda.

    ReplyDelete
  31. he he Phx yes i see that. In fact, the prohibition was from entering ME. lol

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ahhh well....I always wanted to get married in Paris....LOL!!! But if it ever happened..I have news for you. I'm not leaving!!! So there!! LOL! ;-)
