Wedding Dress Wednesday: Juliette by Madi Lane

Meet: Juliette
Designer: Madi Lane

Why we love her: Juliette is a gown with a traditional “Madi Lane” feel! This sweet little a-line is lightweight, comfortable, and stunning. She has a fitted, unlined bodice that makes the incredible floral and vine lace pop against any skin tone! The lace cascades down the waistline and trickles down the skirt. The v-neck neckline has more lace atop illusion straps that fade into a gorgeous scooped back. Subtle sparkle shines as the sun hits the sequins in the appliqué. 

Madi Lane Juliette Bodice

Juliette is a low maintenance dress that does not sacrifice any beauty for comfort. The skirt is flowy yet slim for the brides who do not want a ton of volume and the straps help keep the dress in place all night long. Madi Lane’s signature charmeuse lining is soft and traps no heat, keeping you cool as you dance the night away! This beauty also has a small 25” train that makes bustling a breeze. You cannot go wrong with a gown like this!

She’s perfect for: The summer time bride! The botanical lace and sparkle on this gown is exquisite underneath the sun, and golden hour pictures in this gown are to die for! The unlined bodice allows air to flow freely so that no heat is trapped within the gown. Juliette is lightweight so moving, dancing, and posing for pictures are a breeze whether you are getting married in a garden, at the beach, on a golf course, or anywhere in between!

Madi Lane Juliette Strap

This gown is very flirty, whimsical, and feminine. Brides who like Juliette love just how romantic the dress feels without having too much going on! Juliette can be ordered with a lined front bodice, and in ivory/mocha or all ivory. We have even had brides add a layer of glitter tulle into the gown to make the gown shimmer just a touch more! Ask your consultant about customizations to make her feel like a one-of-a-kind gown.

What makes her special: Her lace pattern! It is no secret that Madi Lane has the prettiest floral laces, but Juliette has both a beautiful assortment of florals and a gorgeous vine throughout the gown. The framing of the vine on the straps elevates the look of the bodice just a touch more. If you follow Madi Lane, you know the incredibly gorgeous Harper, Elora, and Halani gowns. Juliette is reminiscent of these a-line beauties but redeveloped into a fresh, new gown. This gown is a stunner and will have all of your guests in awe!

Wedding Dress Wednesday: Daniela Di Marino #6305

Meet #6305

Designer: Daniela Di Marino

Why we love her: Style #6305 by Daniela Di Marino is a quiet stunner. She has a fresh and boho style while remaining very bridal and elegant. She is perfect for minimalist brides, summer brides, and every bride in between!

Boho-style lace covers the bodice, and it is offset by a smooth chiffon skirt. Stitched into the bodice’s lace is a touch of clear sequins, which give the dress a very subtle sparkle. The bodice is unlined, making the lace pop against all skin tones because it looks like it is resting directly on the bride’s skin. This adds a layer of depth and dimension to give the dress a little extra pizzazz.

Daniela DiMarino wedding dress 6305 lace on bodice

Speaking of pizzazz, scalloped lace detailing frames the sweetheart neckline and sweeps effortlessly into off-the-shoulder sleeves. The neckline of this dress is romantic and delicate. The illusion top keeps the lacey off-the-shoulder sleeves in place, so brides can focus on getting married without fidgeting or worrying about a wardrobe malfunction; flesh-toned mesh gives this a seamless look. Style 6305’s bodice is intricate, and it is flattering on all body types. 

Daniela DiMarino wedding dress 6305 cap sleeve

The back has the same textured lace on the bodice. It flows from the cap sleeves across the back of the gown; the lace extends upwards in the middle of the back, creating another gorgeous illusion. Satin buttons hold the gown together in the back. The lace detailing extends just a touch past the waistline, which softens the transition from bodice to skirt. A subtle lace belt cinches the waist to give the perfect hourglass shape before the chiffon skirt begins. 

Daniela DiMarino wedding dress 6305 chiffon skirt

Chiffon, as a lightweight material, is a great option for beach weddings and weddings in very hot locations. It is a highly breathable material. The skirt is soft and delicate, just like the bodice. It is flowy without being poofy. There is not a lot of volume to it, but it also does not hug brides’ curves. It is a fantastic option for brides who do not want a ballgown or a full a-line, but do not want something fitted or clingy either.

Chiffon skirts, like this one, are comfortable and flattering. And this skirt has an extra special detail- a split! Splits are common in chiffon skirts, and for good reason. Splits make walking around easier, especially when on a beach or natural ground; also perfect for accentuating brides’ shoes! They make for dramatic photos, and they are the perfect excuse to have some fun with footwear!          

She’s perfect for: Style 6305 by Daniela Di Marino is perfect for weddings taking place outside. Beaches, forests, and gardens will work very nicely with this gown. The chiffon skirt and train will do better on textured grounds like in these locations as opposed to delicate, lacey skirts and trains. Warmer months and locations (hello, destination weddings!) also work well with this wedding dress because of the lightweight skirt and unlined bodice. Style wise, minimalist brides will love her simplicity and elegance, and boho brides will love her lace detail and illusion neckline. 

What makes her special: She is stunning from every angle, but her back really makes her stand out! The detailed illusion back is a highly coveted feature. Today’s brides are very interested in intricate, detailed backs on gowns. Between the sleeves, the lace placement, and the buttons, there is much to adore about her back. The chiffon skirt ends with a plain, chapel-length train. This gives brides the opportunity to wear an exciting and dramatic veil. Veils with lace on the end are a great accessory option for this gown because it will tie in the lace from the bodice and add some dazzling detail on the bottom of the simple train.

Between veils on the plain train, and shoes peeking out from the split in the front, brides can have so much fun accessorizing Style 6305 by Daniela Di Marino!

Wedding Dress Wednesday: Corey by Calla Blanche

Meet Corey!

Designer: Calla Blanche

Why we love her: 
Calling all fairy tale brides because we have the dress for you! Corey by Calla Blanche has everything necessary to help brides feel like the princesses they are. A gorgeous mixture of sparkle, beading, and lace, she radiates romance. With a full a-line silhouette, brides will look like they are walking on clouds with the airy layers of tulle that are sprinkled with sparkle. The layer of sparkle tulle in Corey’s skirt gives her a fresh and elegant look. And it doesn’t stop there!  

Corey by Calla Blanche has a beautifully beaded bodice and a corded-edge plunge neckline

The bodice is striking. Appliques, beading, and more sparkle tulle come together to create a top that guests soon won’t forget! Beaded spaghetti straps help hold the dress up, and they continue on to create a much-loved V-shape neckline with a plunge.

The plunge adds a little spice to a very sweet gown. The bodice is unlined but has structure through boning; the boning gives her a modern corset-style look. The boning also helps brides achieve a dramatic silhouette. It’s perfect for snatching that waist before the tulle skirt begins. 

Atop the gown lies some of the most stunning beaded lace appliques you will ever see. The appliques, with their floral design, are topped with mixed beading and clear sequins. A silver thread runs through them to enhance their design. All of this gives the appliques an impressive, dimensional look.

The floral applique cascades from the top of the bodice down over the waistline, creating a flattering and elegant look. It drips down the top part of the skirt which helps elongate brides. The appliques also wrap around the back of the dress and down the back of the skirt. The high, structured back on Corey makes her a great option for brides of all sizes. 

Corey by Calla Blanche is available in ivory/ivory or ivory/light nude. The sample in our store is ivory/light nude. This means the lining of the dress is light nude, and the flowy tulle on top is ivory. Ordering Corey in ivory/ivory means the lining would be ivory as well as the tulle on top.

She’s perfect for: Bold brides looking for princess vibes! Brides of all sizes can feel gorgeous wearing Corey because of the supportive boning in the bodice, straps, and the high back-line. With the floral details and airy tulle, she is a great choice for spring and summer weddings. Moreover, the silver thread sewn throughout the lace pattern, accompanied by the layer of glitter tulle, means that this dress would be a fantastic option for winter weddings as well. Venue types that will compliment Corey’s exquisit and regal design include wineries, botanical gardens, and historic chateaus and mansions. 

What makes her special: One look at Corey, and you can tell there is something very special about her. She is romantic, she is whimsical, and she is sophisticated. The full a-line skirt is a once-in-a-lifetime silhouette, and the delicate embellishments are to die for. Every detail on this gown has been meticulously placed; she is a masterpiece. But perhaps one of her most alluring features is hidden within her tulle skirt….pockets! She has substantial pockets where brides can keep meaningful momentos they want to walk down the aisle with or a handkerchief for when vows get emotional.

Calla Blanche has also designed a beautiful sheer tulle jacket with a high neck, and long sleeves that are beaded from the forearm to the wrist, a puff at the shoulders, and ties in the back for a beautiful bow and romantic trails down the train. All in all, Corey is a must-try for brides who love intricate detailing, gentle sparkles, and a striking silhouette!  

Wedding Dress Wednesday: Stella York 7457

Meet: Stella York 7457

Designer: Stella York

Stella York 7457

Why We Love Her: Elegance with stunning touches of modernity, Stella York 7457 has it all!

This pretty little sheath dress has the most exquisite matte satin fabric and boning in the bodice, making her flattering to all shapes and sizes. Her lace, illusion straps are delicate while providing the perfect amount of support for larger busts, and a subtle plunge adds a hint of sexiness. The semi-sheer bodice emphasizes the bold floral and leaf lace pattern adorning the bodice.

The back of this gown is equally as incredible as the front, featuring a low v-back and the illusion, lace straps that frame the back beautifully. Buttons trickle down the back to a spectacular and elaborate floral lace train that your photographer will LOVE.

Let’s not forget the shimmer – this dress will glisten in the sun from the subtle sequin detail in the bodice down to the glitter tulle in the train. There is a lot to love about this gown!

Stella York 7457 has gorgeous lace over luxe matte satin

She’s Great For: brides with outdoor ceremonies or all-outdoor weddings! The lace on this beauty would make her the perfect fit for garden, beach, or vineyard ceremonies. The contrast of grass or sand underneath the sheer train makes the floral lace and sparkle pop, and draw all eyes to those stunning details on the back.

The bride will glow during golden hour as the light catches the sequins in the lace and the glitter tulle in the train. This dress is a great option for brides who are torn between styles! The elegance of the matte satin appeals to brides who love simple, timeless styles while the floral lace draws in elements of romance. Her versatility is 

What Makes Her Special: Her matte satin fabric! Most styles similar to this gown are made of a stretch crepe that hugs the curves of the body. For brides who do not like fabrics that cling but want a cleaner look, the matte satin fabric on 7457 is the perfect option! It hugs the body without clinging and the structure in the fabric helps creates a more smooth look than crepe.

The feel of the satin is luxurious and lightweight, ensuring that the bride will not overheat on her big day.

The Stella York specialty is the incredible lace patterns they use to elevate their dresses. The floral train on the 7457 is one-of-a-kind and to DIE for! The scalloped shape gives the train some dimension as she glides down the aisle behind you. Gorgeous lotus and leaf motifs are strategically placed to emphasize the shape of the scallop while creating a dramatic, jaw dropping silhouette.

Brides, trust us, you are going to want to add this one to your try on list!

Wedding Dress Wednesday: Dauphine By Morilee

Meet Dauphine!

Designer: Morilee

Why we love her: There’s almost no words for this remarkable gown.

Dauphine by Morilee is nothing short of extraordinary. Regality meets modernity meets romance. Every inch of this gown is ornately decorated.

The effortless mermaid silhouette combined with sparkle tulle and lace appliques make Dauphine an easy choice for brides looking to go all-out with their gowns. Traditional lace appliques decorate the entire gown with organic vine and leaf patterns. The appliques cascade down the length of the gown, and their placement is artfully slimming. Clear sequins are stitched to the appliques to make them glisten as brides walk down the aisle. Shimmery glitter tulle lays beneath the appliques and adds a gentle sparkle. Dancing the night away, brides will catch the light and shine like the stars they are!

The bodice of this mermaid wedding dress has extra support for a great fit

Dauphine’s bodice is heavily structured to support brides and help them feel secure all night long. Boning lines the bodice to keep everything pulled in! The bodice is unlined, so the boning is lightly visible underneath the applique. This corset-style look is a modern touch that a lot of brides are drawn to these days. Dauphine’s bodice is topped off with a signature sweetheart neckline– so romantic! 

Dauphine’s neckline flows seamlessly into illusion long sleeves (they’re detachable!). Ornate lace appliques line the top of the sleeve and descend the length of it. These long sleeves are nude mesh, so the applique details on them appear to lay directly on skin. They are finished off with button closures on the end. Attaching the sleeves creates a dramatic squared shape for the back neckline. The sleeves take the dress from modern vibes to something much more regal. Because they’re detachable, brides can achieve two exceptional looks with one dress!   

The back of the Dauphine wedding dress when worn with the sleeves has a dramatic squared back that lead perfectly into the button covered zip closure

Buttons cover up the zipper closure on the back of Dauphine’s bodice. They continue down the bride’s backside and help make that booty pop. The buttons stop where the train starts to flare out. The train is cathedral length. The lining of the dress does not continue the length of the train, meaning the end of the train is a stunning sheer illusion. All of the mechanics required for bustling the train will blend right in with all of the appliques, so brides will be able to dance all night without worry! As the lace applique drips down the gown, it concludes with gorgeous scalloped hem lace. The hem lace encircles the entire bottom of the dress and follows the length of the train. This gives a finished look to the gown, making it completely stunning from top to bottom. 

She’s great for: Dauphine is a unique dress, and she will look her best at unique venues! Castles on the Irish countryside, industrial-style lofts, and even luxurious, artsy hotels will make a great backdrop for her. Dauphine is also great for brides getting married during months with unpredictable weather and temperatures. With the detachable long sleeves, brides can transition from cooler weather to warmer weather with the same gown!

What makes her special: the stunning, detachable sleeves! Brides can quickly and easily change the entire look of their gown by adding or removing these beautifully crafted sleeves. They attach so flawlessly that guests will never know that they come off until it happens. It’s as smooth as a transition as can be. The intricate and thoughtful details on the sleeves elevate the entire look, taking it from modern to fit for royalty And the exquisite craftsmanship by Morilee of the sleeves is maintained throughout the entire gown, making it an obvious choice for bold and regal brides!

She comes with detachable off-the-shoulder straps, giving brides two looks with one dress! The straps are covered in stunning 3-D lace appliques. Danica’s bodice has boning like a corset, which not only helps carry the dress but also creates a dynamite shape on our brides. The exposed boning juxtaposed with rose appliques gives this dress a modern twist.

Danica has floral appliques that cascade down the gown. The bodice is layered with gleaming flowers, gorgeous leaves, and delicate vines. The appliques continue down the dress where they drip down the skirt like a waterfall. Her sparkle level could be considered a triple threat; she has an ethereal layer of glitter tulle, shiny sequins stitched onto the lace appliques, and delicate beading on her bodice. The layer of glitter tulle is underneath the layer of tulle with the appliques, which softens the shimmer to keep it romantic and elegant. Clear sequins on the flowers and leaves give them a gentle twinkle. It doesn’t get more “WOW” than that!

However, there is a stunning design with applique on the very bottom the train; this will make the bustle look extra-special when it’s time to party!

She has a cathedral length train; the fabric of the train is lightweight, so it won’t feel too heavy or cumbersome! Fanning out in a circular shape, this train radiates from every angle!

What makes her special: Definitely her godet-style skirt, meaning triangular pleats give her so much volume and movement! Brides will look like they are gliding down the aisle with this skirt.

Why We Love Her: Cairo is a drop-dead gorgeous dress for brides looking to make a statement. She has a stunning fit and flare silhouette that will hug every curve on the bride while the bodice boning will give a dream hourglass shape. Her stretchy material will let the bride move freely without being too restricted as well!

Cairo’s back is just another glamorous detail that contributes to this dress. It begins with a beaded-edged illusion lace low back that makes it have a sexy look while also showcasing the lace design of the dress. The lace then graciously transitions down into the beautiful lace-edged tulle train. Because the ivory underlayer of the dress is cut to floor length, the extension of the tulle train shows off Cairo’s detail even more!

Here you can see the incredible sparkle and detail!

Cairo’s intricate detailing and over-the-top sparkle is to die for! She has a tulle skirt that is heavily embroidered with various sized iridescent sequins and will sparkle in any lighting. On top of that layer, Cairo has a gorgeous floral and leaf lace layer that softly cascades down the dress. And of course those appliques have sequins on top!

Cairo is available in two different colors: all ivory (shown in store pictures) and ivory/mocha/almond. As you can see, the all ivory version focuses on showcasing the glitz and glam of this dress, whereas the ivory/mocha version will make the lace pop!

She’s Great For: Cairo is great for the glamorous bride that wants to have a WOW wedding dress! Her sparkle will be seen by every person at the weddings no matter how far the bride is standing. With the sparkle vibe of this dress, it would perfectly fit into a ballroom venue. However, if the bride wanted a more summer themed wedding, then switching this dress color to the ivory/mocha version and highlighting the floral lace would be the way to go!

Eddy K Cairo dress has a very low back with mesh detailing and buttons and a very unique and sexy sweetheart at the back waist!
Gorgeous details on the back including a very sexy addition of a sweetheart at the waist!

What Makes Her Special: What makes Cairo special is the amount of sparkle that she has, and her ability to completely transform looks by simply switching the color of the underlayer. Unlike most dresses whose sparkle gets muted, Cairo’s sequins will be easily seen throughout the entire night and in photos (as pictured). Also, because her glam comes solely from sequins, the bride will not have to worry about the shedding glitter that sticks to ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING!

Another unique characteristic of Cairo is that she has a matching veil! No need to worry about the hassle of finding the perfect matching veil, because the Eddy K design team already did the work for you!

Wedding Dress Wednesday: Petra from Eddy K

Meet Petra!

Petra by Eddy K, a stunning and classic ballgown

Why we love her: Petra is classically bridal! Elegant, romantic, and sparkly, she is everything you could ever want in a ball gown. She has a classic ball gown silhouette; she brings the drama without even trying. This silhouette is good for all body types, especially curvy brides. Being fitted through the bodice then coming out at the skirt allows brides to accentuate their waist and chest. This beautiful wedding dress is flattering on everyone!

She has a beautiful beaded plunging neckline. Thin spaghetti straps hold the dress up while the beading on top of them adds a gorgeous sparkle. A sweetheart neckline is accompanied by a deep yet narrow plunge. Her bodice is covered by gorgeous floral applique. Flowers and petals decorate the top and gently trickle down the waistline. This helps elongate brides by not cutting them off at the waist. The lace applique is continued on the skirt and comes up gracefully along the train. A scalloped hem lace adds a beautiful, delicate finish to this statement gown. A layer of sparkle tulle throughout the dress gives her a gorgeous shine.

The back comes down in a V-shape, and it is lined with the same beading as the straps and neckline. She has a zipper closure, but there are a dozen buttons as well– super romantic! Petra has a chapel length train; it’s the perfect length for a dress with this volume. Her train will bustle without creating any unnecessary bulk. While being a ballgown, she is light-weight! She is made up of tulle, sparkle tulle, and some crinoline. Some crinoline can always be taken out in alterations, but why mess with perfection?
