We were well represented!

Monique Lhuillier with The Bride Room Owner, Charlotte Poling

So, we're still on cloud nine from last night's festivities at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center:: The annual Spring Fashion Show sponsored by the lovely Gus Mayer store in Green Hills Mall... 

First I just have to THANK you all --- The Bride Room was well represented!!  During the cocktail hour Monique made her rounds with her precious husband Tom and after our original introduction, she stopped me again and said, "By the way, you are well represented tonight!  Everyone keeps telling me they wore our gown at their wedding and I say 'let me guess, The Bride Room!'" (I did my best not to *squeal* with delight - then I promptly asked her for a photo opp!) ....oh, Monique, how we adore you!!  She was so gracious as swarms of socialites and brides and press {and me!} asked for pose after pose...  Monique, I truly hope that you enjoyed the warm southern welcome you received!

Here are a few of my favorites from the show...  amazing how ready to wear and bridal cross over... so many of the gowns are in the bridal collection in white or ivory!!  Such fun to see them transition into bold color......

we have this gown in the store right now in ivory::

and this one too::

This one was in the bridal collection last season in all ivory with a matching veil::

And this one deserves THREE photos... the finale gown::
Hello Lovely... please come to live at The Bride Room... you would be well loved!

What a delight and a privilege to attend such a well appointed, well attended event... we were thrilled to be a part of it and will look forward to it from year to year.... special thanks to the sweet and talented Elizabeth Broyhill from the ever popular Monkees store in the Hill Center for inviting us to sit at her table... what a wonderful time!  Until next year....

*UPDATE* A few {professional!} runway and social photos here!
