If you are not getting married in Monique Lhuillier, why don't get married in vintage?   What would be more chic than a vintage Christian Lacroix cream taffeta gown from the maestro of later 20th century Parisian  Haute Couture who sadly no longer designs his eponymous brand?
A strapless gown with a massive brooch and tiers of ornate lace that has all the hallmarks of Lacroix's legendary designs that defined French fashion.  There are also elements of traditional Russian folkloric dress and the brooch (which is removable) reminds me of a spider by way of the Byzantine Empire.
Eggshell gowns are not just for brides, so this could be an ideal white-tie gala option for those who get invited to white-tie galas.  You know who you are!

Christian Lacroix Haute Couture silk taffeta cream gathered with lace & gilt adornment detail, c. 1990's. Modern size 6-8.
