Designer Monique Lhuillier is world renown for her romantic designs, flattering silhouettes, floral patterns, and gorgeous lace and embellishments. Monique Lhuillier gowns have been synonymous with European luxury, elegance, and texture. In this blog post, we highlight 5 gorgeous Monique Lhuiller bridal gowns that showcase an undeniably European vibe, from weddings in Tuscany to France. Even featuring a few weddings in the United States to give you that European feel!
Kendall Gray’s Monique Lhuillier gown was custom. Her gown featured an organza layered skirt, lace corset bodice and a tulle halter that tied into a bow. The bow in the back had detachable cathedral length tails that took the place of a veil. A little drama, a lot of fashion, and tons of romance.
Bianca’s floral Monique Lhuillier gown featured color tones of pink, blush, and greens, a strapless bodice, and optional detachable sleeves. The cathedral length train moved beautifully through the gardens of this gorgeous Italian Villa just outside of Siena in Tuscany. And as a bonus, the dress included pockets as well!
Emily choose a slim fitting Monique Lhuillier gown with two looks. She wore a custom cathedral length veil with an embroidered monogram for her and her groom, and a long sleeve topper for her church ceremony. Bridal portraits in the beautiful getting ready space with natural light and European architecture curated stunning Lake Como inspired moments. Post ceremony, Emily removed the topper and veil, and included a hair change, for a completely different look.
Jeni choose a classic and romantic Monique Lhuillier gown with a cathedral train for her dream wedding in France. With the iconic lace we’ve known to expect from this designer, her strapless gown also featured a matching veil and low v-cut bodice. Instead of having a bouquet, she choose a fashion forward floral garland to compliment the floral lace pattern on her gown.
Mary Kate wore a clean, off the shoulder Monique Lhuillier gown for her Irish meets Italian wedding at a villa just outside Philadelphia. Paired with an lace appliqué on her veil, the back of her dress gave drama with the cathedral train and subtle bow design.

"Truly unparalleled artistic talent. Liz truly got to understand my husband and I as individuals and as a couple, and she used this knowledge throughout her work to capture beautiful, meaningful moments. We had Liz photograph every part of our wedding process - from the engagement shoot, to the bridal shower, the rehearsal dinner, and finally of course the wedding day. She is kind, enthusiastic, responsive, and an all around fantastic person. We cannot recommend her enough!”
