St. Regis Bora Bora Offers Wedding Dress Rental for Your Destination Wedding

The luxurious St. Regis Bora Bora Resort is partnering with one of Europe’s hottest young fashion sensations, Cecilie Melli to create a truly innovative wedding program for hotel guests. Original wedding gowns will be available for rent – or purchase – through the resort’s new Bridal Boutique, which features a resident Romance Butler to advise and assist in all planning and preparation for the perfect dream wedding.

Breathtakingly set amidst lush unspoiled surroundings and pristine waters, there are spectacular views of the main island of Bora Bora as well as the mystical Mount Otemanu, towering over the Pacific Ocean, with the remote islands of Tahaa and Raiatea on the horizon.  St. Regis Resort, Bora Bora is protected by self-contained saltwater lagoons and designed to complement the surrounding landscape.  The resort features a manmade “hoa” — a Tahitian inlet that utilizes the ocean tides and currents — that provides deep ocean water to the lagoon, replenishing fresh nutrients to sustain the abundant variety of native fish and stingrays.

“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.”

Melli is the Norwegian designer whose classic silhouettes, elegant, whimsical details and lovely color palettes have captured the attention of the international world of fashion. Melli’s creations for the St. Regis Bora Bora will be available in small, medium and large sizes, with arrangements coordinated through the resort’s Romance Butler and Melli’s team of professionals.

The St. Regis Bora Bora Bridal Boutique will be complete will all the wedding trimmings – including the signature dresses, luxe changing areas, dedicated hair and makeup area, interior photography area, an indoor and outdoor lounge area with signature food and beverage treats, and wedding albums.

Whether couples are planning a destination wedding (legal or symbolic), renewal of vows, a special proposal, or honeymoon vacation, no occasion is too small or large for the Romance Butler and Melli’s dresses. The rest of the bridal party, including groom, attendants and families also can be outfitted. With just one call to the resort, every property detail of a perfect wedding can be arranged. The St. Regis Bora Bora Bridal Boutique will open Winter 2013.

Prices start at $400 for a rental of the signature wedding dresses, and will be available for order begining December 2012.  For more information or enquiries contact
