In order to ease the minds of their clients, the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort is now offering a bridal boutique on site as an additive to their one-stop shop mentality that also includes photography, floral, food and more in one of the most breath-taking locales on the planet. They have partnered with one of Europe’s hottest young fashion sensations, Norwegian designer Cecilie Melli, to create a line of wedding gowns that capture the luxurious essence of Bora Bora.




“Our new wedding program brings the concept of one-stop-shopping to those brides planning a destination wedding, which in our case happens to be at of the most beautiful and romantic places in the world,” said general manager, Michael Schoonewagen. “What could be more desirable, elegant and meaningful than to have all the details of your wedding planned for you, complete with an exquisite, original wedding gown created by one of today’s fabulous young stars of fashion–and you don’t even have to go through the trouble of bringing it with you! We are enormously delighted to work with Cecilie and I know our guests will be equally thrilled.”



Starting at just $400, brides can rent one of Melli’s signature wedding dresses to say their I dos in paradise, with a variety of choices including a dusty pink braided mini dress and a silky, romantic chiffon sheath gown. They are now taking orders for Winter 2013 weddings.
