Chosen Stockist: En Blanc
Come behind the scenes and meet our exclusive L.A. stockist, En Blanc. We speak to Bridget and the team about all things business, bridal and Chosen.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS...
We opened our doors in 2018 after recognizing that LA needed another option out there for our brides. We wanted to focus on fashion, style and service and provide another option for our California girls to meet what they were searching for. A one-stop-shop catering to the diverse brides we get to see every day here at En Blanc. We make it our goal to provide them with the best experience they can get in town and always have a fresh, perfectly curated collection for our brides.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE BRIDAL?
Bridal is a perfect marriage of the two things I love most in life... Love and Fashion. Being able to have a small part in our brides' stories is so special to us and being able to share with them in that moment when they see themselves in their gown on their special day is truly a gift that we do not take for granted. It's a major responsibility to be a part of that magic and we couldnt love it more!
TELL US ABOUT YOUR TEAM AND WHAT MAKES THEM SO SPECIAL...
Our team is attentive, talented, innovative, patient, diverse, stylish, and so incredibly dedicated to their profession. Each stylist we have on the floor shares the understanding and love for the mission we have here at En Blanc and this is so clear when they work with their brides. They know the experience you have when finding your special gown is one you'll always remember and I feel so fortunate to be a part of that. We all feel so lucky to develop the relationship we have with each of our brides and we're always available for help, tips, or just to lend an ear for our girls.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CHOSEN GOWN?
I have to choose two here because its just too hard to narrow it down to one. The clean lines and sexy silhouette of the Kingston gown and the way that bonded georgette feels once on our brides is just INCREDIBLE and will always be one of our favorites. Then, of course, Nala. She needs no introduction and is so perfect for the modern bride.
SHARE ONE OF YOUR CHOSEN BRIDE MEMORIES...
One of our brides, Kayla, chose the gorgeous Nala gown for her special day in Tulum, Mexico. She and her mother were absolute joys to work with and she broke the internet with her photos from her special day celebrating love. We felt so close to their journey having spent intimate time with Kayla finding her gown right when En Blanc opened and she's part of the reason Nala will forever be one our favorites.
A PIECE OF ADVICE FOR BRIDES GETTING MARRIED...
Be open to silhouettes and styles. More often than not, it's easy to come in with a certain vision and shift to something that completely surprises you. Stay true to YOUR style and listen to YOUR voice louder than anyone elses. This is arguably the most exciting part of your wedding planning experience aside from the love youre celebrating so keeping an open mind and staying true to your style will always lead you to be confident with your decision and keep it a joyful experience.
WHAT IS A HIGHLIGHT IN YOUR BRIDAL CAREER?
In the two years we've been open we were nominated for best bridal salon in LA by California Wedding Day and awarded Best of 2020 by The Knot by real couples. This has brought us so much joy and we couldnt be more honored that real couples and other vendors in the industry can recognize the hard work and dedication the team at En Blanc gives for their brides.
WHAT IS THE BEST PART ABOUT WORKING IN BRIDAL?
The 5 second moment when you see your bride fall magically in love with their dress. Their facial expressions change, the way they feel about themselves is beautiful and its something that we get to see unfold before our eyes. It's really is magic and we are so lucky to be able to experience that with our brides daily.
