For their wedding dress, French women want something that is “discreetly chic.” French brides search for simplicity but refinement, impeccable cut and highest quality fabrics and lace. Less is always more. They love the idea of being themselves, unique and a bit offbeat.
With inspiration ranging from romantic and haute couture to bohemia and retro, here is my favorite trendy French Bridal Designers in 2020!
