The Monique Lhuillier Aviva gown new is priced at $13,000, and the veil at $2,300, before tax. Two pictures above were featured on Monique Lhullier's Instagram @moniquelhullierbridal on June 18 and June 30, 2018. Some others were featured on @OverTheMoon on January 6, 2020. As seen in the Jimmy Choo Bridal Collection Campaign and Monique Lhullier's Essie line.
I would consider renting the dress for $4,000. In order to do so, I would require payment of $8,000 (the other $4,000 would be a deposit) and when I received the dress back in good condition, I would return $4,000 to you. This would all be included in the PayPal terms for both of our protection. For rental option, please note price is non-negotiable.
HOW CAN I TRY IT ON?
If you would like to try this dress on from the retailer, the Platinum Collecion is only carried at a handful of bridal boutique retailers. It is located at Monique Lhuillier flagship stores (e.g. LA, NYC). If you are not near a flagship, you may request it from your Monique Lhullier retailer either free of charge during a Monique Lhullier trunk show (just call and request your retailer include it in their trunk show), or for $150 you may have Monique Lhullier send it to your retailer for you to try at any time. Monique Lhullier’s website lists all flagship and retail stores to help you find the one closest to you.
You may also travel to try on the exact dress. I can arrange to have the dress in Naples, FL.
WHAT IS THE PLATINUM COLLECTION?
The Monique Lhuillier, "Aviva" is a timeless vision from the Platinum Collection, which includes only the highest end of Monique Lhullier's gowns. Made of the finest fabrics, this dress is overwhelmingly impressive and elegant. Horse hair tulle and Spanish tulle are hand embroidered with "confetti" beadwork that create an illusion look. Rather than having bare shoulders, the illusion bateau neckline with sleeves gives you a polished, flawless look. This Monique Lhuillier has a slight blush color with white and silver beadwork, that make the dress look off white, ivory, or blush depending on the lighting. Beadwork is hand stitched into multiple layers of the tulle. As a result, the way the dress picks up the sunlight and candlelight will give you a shimmering glow throughout your wedding day. It is the most spectacular dress I have ever seen.
The veil is included in the price. However, if you would like to negotiate price, I would be willing to keep the veil and lower the price. If you love the veil, this circle veil was specifically made by Monique Lhullier to accompany this dress, so it is the exact same color, fabric and beadwork. The confetti, illusion beading is hand embroidered into the end of the veil. The sparkle stunningly lays on top of the gown, coming past the end of the gown, showcasing the beadwork as you walk down the aisle. Or if you would still like to negotiate a lower price and I keep the veil, I can include an ivory veil that was $300 custom made that came with my preloved rehearsal dress. If you would like this ivory veil or another veil to match the exact color of the dress, you can dye it the same color.
The silk bow in the stock photo is included and has never been worn, but it is not Monique Lhullier. It is exactly the same color and two inches width. If you would like any other additions to the dress, I am the original owner, and thus can order the exact matching ribbon, additional fabric, or extra beading should you desire to make any changes or alterations that speak to you.
This was the first wedding dress I saw at my very first appointment. After six other bridal boutiques and nearly 40 other dresses, it was clear the Aviva was the one! The quality of other designers in similar price points was far less than the Aviva's. There is something so unique about this gown and of course, the Monique Lhullier Platinum Collection does not disappoint. You will be the most stunning bride on your big day. Once you see this gown in person, like me, you will undoubtedly realize no other gown can compare.
I strongly considered purchasing the Aviva on one of the consignment sites. I even travelled to see one dress in person. Sadly, they were all altered too drastically, changing the inherent shape and structure of the dress's perfect design. For example, one was a size 8 sample dress altered to be a size 2, making the alterations noticeable. Or, fabric was added to the bust to make the dress more matronly. After months of frustration, I decided to purchase it directly from Monique Lhuillier, and hope another bride that loves this dress as much as I do finds it to wear on her wedding day. Maybe she even passes it along when she is done.
This dress is not a sample; rather, it is custom ordered for a traditional US size 2 with as minimal alterations as possible (fits true to size, specific measurements above, but please note waist is irrelevant because this is a ball gown, and the corset-like top fits B-C cups). The only alterations include shortening the dress (for 5 foot, 6 inch height with 3.5 inch heels, so 5 foot, 9.5 inches total), the addition of delicate French bustling to allow for dancing, and discrete cups that can be removed. All alterations done at Ultimate Bride with the most experienced and talented team in the city.
