Featured Wedding Dress: Phoebe From Casablanca Bridal

Meet: Phoebe

Designer: Casablanca Bridal

Why we love her:

Phoebe by Casablanca Bridal has everything a classic bridal gown should: soft tulle, delicate beading, and a romantic silhouette. This a-line gown is sure to win over even the most meticulous brides.

Phoebe’s beloved a-line silhouette is a comfortable, easy-to-wear shape. It hugs brides through the bodice and floats out with her dreamy, tulle skirt. Very subtle pleating details give the skirt volume without adding weight. Horsehair trim on the skirt helps it keep its shape and gives it whimsical movement that will keep brides on the dance floor all night long!

This dress has a strapless, sweetheart neckline. Romantic off-the-shoulder tulle sleeves wrap around brides’ arms and tie in the back in a sweet bow; this thoughtful bow detail elevates the look and makes her all the more special.

Carefully curated, mixed-material beading covers the bodice of Phoebe. An ornate mixture of diamante beads, clear beads, and white beads adorn the appliques that cover the bodice and drip down slightly past the waistline. The appliques create a striking motif, and the beading adds the sparkle that every bride deserves!

The bodice is unlined, meaning it is sheer. Exposed boning creates a corset-style look that is currently trending with brides. Brides also have the option of having the bodice lined if they do not like the corset embellishment. The boning in the bodice supports the gown, keeps her in place all night long, and really enhances brides’ natural curves. Paired with the a-line skirt, Phoebe will flatter every body type! 

Phoebe is available with a nude, champagne, ivory, or pure white underlay. These color options guarantee that brides will find the perfect combination for their complexion. 

She’s Perfect For:

Brides looking for a traditional but elevated style of wedding gown. Her sweetheart neckline, tulle skirt, and chapel-length train are all hallmarks of classic, timeless gowns. But her unique motif, mixed beading, and off-the-shoulder straps that tie in a bow give her modern elements that keep her fresh and youthful. Types of venues that will complement Phoebe include historic hotels, elegant estates, and classic country clubs. With no overtly floral design elements, Phoebe can be a great choice for brides getting married in any season. 

What Makes Her Special:

The design pattern on Phoebe is unlike anything else in our store. Bold, embellished appliques swirl across the bodice, invoking a geometric symmetry that is easy on the eyes and hard to forget. Vines and swirls, and if you want to get technical Volutes, rhythmically decorate the top of the gown with their thoughtful placements. The intricacy and detail in the top is juxtaposed by a simple tulle skirt, and enhanced even further by adding the matching cathedral lace veil!

There is a graceful balance between extravagant and minimalist with Phoebe, and she should definitely be on every bride’s ‘must-try’ list!

How to Pick and Pack Your Destination Wedding Dress

A destination wedding at a beautiful and exotic location requires equally beautiful and exotic wedding dress.

Whether you’re traveling two hours by car or two days by plane, your gown is a very important part of your big day and it’s important to pack and transport it with care. Here are some tips on how to pick and pack your destination wedding dress:


When choosing your gown for a beach wedding, consider lighter weight fabrics like organza, chiffon, English net, and charmeuse. Shimmering beads and light sequins can create a magnificent glow from sunrise to sunset.
