We are extREmely thrilled to announce that our gowns and accessories are now available to our brides-to-be in Nice, France. Sixtine’s owners have created a beautiful, yet comfortable studio space for brides and their loved ones to visit. Bo & Luca spoke to Lisa and Ingrid about how they started and what inspireS them.
HOW DID YOU FIND YOURSELF IN THE BRIDAL INDUSTRY?
Lisa: I used to work in the events industry and fell in love with weddings, so I became a wedding planner. Ingrid always had a love for photography and became a wedding photographer. This is how we met and became friends. We’ve always had this dream of opening a bridal store together, and already being in the wedding industry helped us a lot. We know what brides are looking for and we have a good understanding of our local market.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR BOUTIQUE?
We wanted our studio to be a little cocoon for brides and their loved ones. We went with white and other natural tones, materials such as linen, marble and a touch of greenery. Our aim is for our brides to feel at home. We would describe the overall look of our store as simple, cozy and elegant.
LESS OR MORE?
Definitely less! You Can always accessorize. Let the focal point be on the details – beautiful bead work, a detailed veil, or a stunning open back. To us, simplicity is beautiful and elegant.
WHAT’S THE BIGGEST BRIDAL TREND OF THE SEASON?
We think that this season we will see more simple styles with the focus on details. No over-the-top gowns, but rather a good balance between a simple cut and elegant details.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FUTURE GOALS?
We are hoping to assist brides-to-be in finding the gown of their dreams. Brides on the French Riviera don’t have much choice as there is a lack of bridal stores. We are hoping to give them a greater choice, with brands like Bo & Luca, to choose from.
WHO WOULD BE YOUR DREAM BRIDE TO DRESS?
If we had to choose one woman to dress for her wedding, we would say Natalie Portman. She portrays a certain elegance and always look polished.
WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’D LEAVE WITH BRIDES IN SEARCH OF THEIR PERFECT WEDDING GOWN?
Be yourself! Listen to yourself and what your heart tells you! If you feel beautiful, you will look beautiful!
OF ALL THE BRANDS AND DESIGNERS, WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE BO & LUCA?
We have loved Bo & Luca for many years now. We love that the Bo & Luca gowns are bohemian yet still extremely elegant. So many brides can envision themselves in a Bo & Luca gown, whether they are working women, elegant, bohemian or travelers. Knowing that each gown is hand crafted makes them even more special – you feel like you are holding a piece of love in your hands.
