Mon Cheri Bridals, LLC was formed in July of 1991. CEO Stephen Lang’s goals for Mon Cheri were to excel as a leading bridal gown and wedding dress manufacturer by not only providing quality products but also through exceptional customer relations. Wedding dresses were only the beginning for Mon Cheri; today, the company produces over twenty branded special occasion product lines worldwide.
Mon Cheri has been a leader in the bridal and special occasion industries since the beginning. A unique feature that gave Mon Cheri a competitive edge early on was the use of color on traditional bridal gowns. Mon Cheri’s introduction of the colors Rum Pink, Blush and Café quickly caught on in the marketplace, inspiring numerous other manufacturers to add color to their own bridal collections.
In 1997, Lang saw a need in the marketplace for mother of the bride and mother of the groom dress suits, cocktail dresses, ball gowns, formal dresses and special occasion gowns. Montage by Mon Cheri was introduced, raising the standard for quality, style and value in special occasion dresses. The Montage by Mon Cheri collection has proven to be very successful and has won numerous awards. Designer Ivonne Dome joined Mon Cheri as the special occasion designer for Montage by Mon Cheri, The Ivonne D Collection, Cameron Blake, Social Occasions by Mon Cheri, and Capri by Mon Cheri.
In the Spring 2001 season, the Cameron Blake collection was introduced. Cameron Blake appeals to women of a mature age who still demand style and grace in their wardrobes. The Social Occasions by Mon Cheri collection provides even more fashionable options for mothers of the couple as well as for women looking for stylish cocktail dresses and short dress suits.
Another new collection was added in the Spring 2005 season: James Clifford Collection. The James Clifford Collection wedding dress line is designed by the legendary James Clifford. A leader in the bridal fashion for decades, Clifford brought romance back to the couture bridal industry with his elegant use of lace and other sumptuous fabrics.
2007 introduced even more exciting new collections including the groundbreaking bridal gown collection Sophia Tolli. With her unparalleled craftsmanship and exceptional fit, the Sophia Tolli collection provides an array of gorgeous, show-stopping bridal gowns and wedding dresses with her signature draping and corset backs.
2009 was another exciting year for Mon Cheri. Famed children’s designer Joan Calabrese joined Mon Cheri with her new collection Joan Calabrese for Mon Cheri. Using only the best fabrics and fashionable styling, Calabrese created an affordable line for any special occasion including dresses for flower girls, First Holy Communion dresses and girl’s party dresses. Also in 2009, Ivonne Dome created the Capri by Mon Cheri collection. This line introduced a variety of silhouettes in unique burnout and tonal fabrics. With carefully designed styles that include jackets or flattering sleeves with every piece, Capri by Mon Cheri flatters all shapes and sizes. Designer Sophia Tolli also brought a new collection to Mon Cheri in 2009. The Sophia Tolli Special Occasion line was created with bridesmaids in mind but has proven to also be a hit for any social occasion. The large range of colors and fabrics designed in the same flattering vein as Tolli’s wedding dresses makes this line great for bridal parties and cocktail attire alike.
The Ivonne D Collection, a high-end special occasion collection of chic evening gowns and formal dresses fit for the red carpet, premiered for the Spring 2011 season. In the Spring 2012 season,David Tutera joined the Mon Cheri family. Leading celebrity wedding and entertaining expert David Tutera partnered with esteemed Mon Cheri designer Martin Thornburg to create the David Tutera for Mon Cheri wedding dress collection. Tutera works closely with Thornburg to develop an assortment of fashionable bridal designs ranging from traditional ball gowns to modern sheaths, and couture fashions to more informal designs. David Tutera for Mon Cheri offers today’s stylish brides high quality fabrics, hand-beaded Swarovski crystals, and impeccable fit at an affordable price.
