For the fashionable bride, the most important part of the wedding is the dress. At the family-owned Chic Parisien, a full-service bridal shop in Coral Gables, each bride comes under the care of Catherine Fox Milian, the current owner and daughter of the founders, who opened the boutique in 1969. With a half-century of bridal-industry knowledge, Chic Parisien carries luxury brands such as Monique Lhuillier, Ines di Santo, Lazaro, Hayley Paige, and others. In addition, the shop carries bridal accessories, evening wear for events such as debutante balls, and some tuxedos. For this high-end selection and service, you'll end up spending $3,500 to $20,000 on a gown. But don't fret at the price tag. If you're on a budget, stop next door at the Find Bridal, Milian's outlet bridal shop that sells discount designer dresses. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and Saturday, and by appointment.
