Featured Wedding Dress: Mabel

Meet Mabel

Designer: Morilee

Why We Love Her:

Fit for royalty, Mabel is a princess dress fit for any bride!. From her crystal beaded lace applique hazed by stunning pleated tulle, all the way down to her cloud-like ballgown skirt, Mabel will have all guests jaws dropped to the floor. Not only is she gorgeous, but she is also a blast to wear and is sure to fulfill any girl’s Cinderella dreams.

With a ball gown as extravagant as this, she comes prepared with a beautifully sheer corset bodice ready to wrap perfectly around the torso to ensure a secure night of twirling and dancing the night away. Mabel also comes with a beautiful set of off-the-shoulder long sheer ruched sleeves which are delicately detailed with beaded applique to match the gown and is offered in Ivory/Honey and Ivory/Ivory.

Morilee Mabel wedding dress

With every detail carefully curated, Mabel is a masterpiece. Beginning with the neckline, a sweetheart for a dress as sweet as this is absolutely fitting. Peaking over the edges of the neckline are delicate beaded floral appliques which stagger naturally across the bust and all throughout the bodice. Taking a closer look at the applique, a lovely blend of shiny beads and stunning sequins are visibly intricate in placement upon the leaves and flower petals with gentle vines connecting them. Wrapped around the bodice is a layer of pleated tulle, adding texture and volume to the look. The angelic visual of the tulle overlay is absolutely breathtaking.

The skirt of this gown presents continued applique from the bodice traveling halfway down the gown. This time however, the tulle overlay is gone, giving the beautiful floral pattern a solo moment in the spotlight. These details are visible from all angles of the dress, and the back of the gown features dainty buttons which fasten the dress from the top, and they go a short way down the back.

With all of the focus on the bride, the train brings the entire look together without even trying. There is no detailing on the train other than her lovely tulle, but it is not needed. The ivory tulle gives a cloud-like feel and completes the angelic visual in a heavenly way. Fluffed out, this ball gown will make dreams come true,and any bride will feel like the princess that they are.

She’s Great For:

Any venue and season would be lucky to have her! Her Ivory underlay reflects beautifully in the summer sun, and looks just as fantastical in the shimmer of a winter wonderland wedding. Her detachable sleeves make her fit for anything.

Mabel is fitting for any ballroom or country club setting. Where there is a dance floor and a spotlight, there Mabel should be also – on the dance floor to show off her amazing twirl-ability, and the spotlight to reflect those beautiful shimmery details!

What Makes Her Special:

Dresses like this are few and far between, and it is definitely Morilee‘s attention to detail in Mabel. The amount of skill and care it takes to create a dress like this is overwhelming, and she is a masterpiece who would complement her perfect bride. For a dress as beautiful as her, Mabel shines as a loved ball gown of ours and we are proud to offer her to our brides-to-be!

Featured Mother of the Bride/Groom Dress: 119D42 from Ivonne D.

Phenomenally elegant 119D42 is a beaded tulle and lace fit and flare gown with modified cap sleeves and offers a sweetheart neckline and natural waist, slimming vertical beaded details and a sweep train. 

Mother of the Bride/Groom Dress: 119D42 from Ivonne D

This is a true couture mother of the bride or special occasion gown from designer Ivonne D. The art deco inspired design of 119D42 is well suited for a full formal or ballroom event and could never be mistaken for a run of the mill mother’s dress.

Embracing sleek and clean lines, the fleur de lis and vine motifs on the tulle overlay are heavily encrusted with glass bugle beads, crystals and sequin. This dress has some weight to it and is made so well, yet a Chantilly lace lining underpins the tulle overlay with a deliciously comfortable nude charmeuse fabric that is beyond comfortable to wear for a long day of photos and celebrations. Great structure and comfort!

We’ve had so much feedback and inquiries about 119D42 since it arrived at our store. And one of the most asked questions is about whether this dress is designed for certain women of stature. So many of our petite customers are worried that they wouldn’t be able to wear this because they feel “vertically challenged”. Let me assure all those perfectly petite ladies out there, you can DEFINITELY wear this gown with a little help from alterations. The vertical beaded lines running down the skirt are actually designed to give the illusion of height!

The beaded motif of the gown diminishes as it reaches the hemline so that a hem is easily adjusted without sacrificing the detail work that makes this piece stand out. This gown has a wide size range from 4-20 to accommodate the curviest of silhouettes and color options to please any bridal aesthetic and season such as Smoke/Nude (shown), Champagne/Nude (show) and Navy/Nude.
