If you’re like me, you’ve spent a good portion of your engaged (and non-engaged) life flipping through bridal magazines, looking for that perfect wedding dress. In fact, even though I found mine several months ago, I can’t help perusing the creations of Pronovias, Monique Lhuillier, Lazaro and Vera Wang. Wedding dresses are just so beautiful, and like many brides, I dreamed about my wedding dress for a very long time. I was lucky enough to get my dream dress at the right price, but not everybody is that fortunate. Some girls have to make a heart wrenching decision – forego the dream dress or eliminate another important aspect of the wedding to stay within budget.
Well, two lovely ladies in Miami think no girl should ever have to make that choice. That’s why they created La Vie En Blanc, a luxury bridal retail and resale business that gives former brides a place to sell their wedding dresses without the hassle of having to put it up for sale themselves. It also gives new brides the chance to purchase designer gowns for their own big days at a lower price. La Vie En Blanc carries bridal gowns, veils, shoes, accessories, and wedding tradition pieces. All items are new or in like-new condition and have been carefully selected by their team. You can either purchase your pre-loved pieces online or at one of their trunk shows across South Florida.
If you’re a bride on a budget, or a former bride looking to recoup some of your wedding costs, La Vie En Blanc might just end up being your bridal wear soul mate.
