Monique Lhuillier Spring 2009 Bridal Collection

Bridal designer extraordinaire Monique Lhuillier has a unique effect over women, engaged or not. I'm not even close to getting married and I have the itch to don one of her dreamy confections!

Monique's latest collection, presented in her NYC showroom, is overflowing with modern romanticism. Each piece is uniquely embellished, belted, or laced. The Grecian number (left) is fit for a bride who wants to channel Romeo's Juliet. They certainly don't come cheap, but if money is no object, seriously consider one of Monique's jaw-dropping dresses. After all, dropping jaws is the effect every bride hopes to have on her husband-to-be and guests.
