When it comes to planning a wedding, finding the perfect wedding dress can be one of the most exciting and eagerly anticipated tasks. Often kept a secret from the groom until its reveal on the big day, the dress sets the tone for the wedding as a whole, whether it’s a casual backyard party or a black tie affair. So where to even begin looking? While many brides head to larger cities to shop, brides in Bucks County have to go no further than La Belle Mariée Bridal in Langhorne.
High Couture with A Personal Touch
It’s easy to forget that you’re in Bucks County when you walk through the doors of La Belle Mariée. The glistening chandeliers, luxurious decor, and soft white light will transport you to a place that’s a cross between the atelier of a French designer and a glitzy NYC showroom. But there’s nothing overwhelming or intimidating about the boutique. Every customer is greeted warmly before being whisked away to a personalized, luxurious VIP experience.
The French-inspired bridal salon carries a large selection of stunning designer dresses that are difficult to find outside of larger cities like Philadelphia or New York, while also offering a personalized shopping experience from beginning to end.
The Dress of Your Dreams
The owners, mother/daughter duo Michele and Gabrielle Frederico, work diligently to stay on top of bridal trends, often traveling the globe to seek out the best of each designer’s offerings. This October, they will be attending the NYC Bridal Market, a star-studded event that allows industry buyers to shop the world’s most fashion-forward wedding dress designers.
“We have one thing in mind when we attend bridal market: our brides. We carefully select each gown, deliberating how we can cater to every bride who walks through our doors. We are constantly keeping our inventory fresh and current!” ~ Co-Owner, Gabrielle Frederico
At La Belle Mariée, brides can shop amongst designers like Pronovias, Hayley Paige, Maggie Sottero, and Muse by Berta, with their personal consultant assisting every step of the way. The luxurious experience begins with a meeting between the bride and the La Belle Mariée consultant to discuss the bride’s personal style, the wedding venue, and any other pertinent details. Then, the consultant escorts the brides around the showroom to select dresses to try on, remaining conscious of the bride's desired style and respectful of their budget. The selection includes more affordable gowns, in addition to higher end styles. Once the bride picks her dress, the celebration begins, with champagne toasts and photos.
In addition to the regular offering of gowns, the salon offers a selection of sample wedding gowns at a discount, as well as plus size dresses up to 24. They carry a selection of non-bridal formal wear as well.
The VIP Experience
The personalized VIP experience doesn’t end once the bride picks her gown.
“We are there to assist her with everything, from accessories to gown fittings,with our goal being to provide her with the dress of her dreams! We truly treat every single one of our brides as if they are family!” ~ Co-Owner, Michele Frederico
