Armed with their first-hand knowledge, the designers offered insight into how French women choose their wedding dresses. For starters, there's one thing they avoid: anything too played out or cookie-cutter. "French brides love the idea of being unique and a bit offbeat," wedding dress designer Laure de Sagazan told Vogue.com. "It’s rare that a bride comes to see me saying that she wants the same dress as this celebrity or a dress she saw in a magazine. They search for singularity."
As for popular silhouettes, de Sagazan says that French women go for streamlined looks. "Parisian brides generally ask for easy, slip-style silhouettes and a relaxed skirt with an A-line waist and short train...They think a lot about their wedding dress but the secret is that nobody can see it. Most of the time when you look at a French bride it looks like she picked her dress last-minute.” Curious to learn more about French designers' insights?
