Known for her couture bridal and ready-to-wear brands, Monique Lhuillier is one of the most sought after designers in the industry.
Following the success of her wedding gown collection, Monique naturally forayed into other markets including stationery, bridesmaid dresses and home and registry.
On June 6, 2012, Monique, along with husband Tom Bugbee made their first ever Toronto appearance at William Ashley to show off a selection of her classic items along with her latest collaboration with Waterford. Weddingbells caught up with the designer to get her advice on planning the perfect wedding. After 17 years of marriage (she and Tom celebrated their anniversary two weeks prior to her visit), Monique had plenty of advice and dreamy ideas to share plus some insight on 2013 bridal trends.
