Wedding Dress Wednesday: Raquel from Beloved Bridal

Meet: Raquel

Designer: Beloved Bridal by Casablanca

Raquel from Beloved Bridal
Raquel from Beloved Bridal

Why We Love Her: Raquel has a flawless balance between modern and classic that all brides will enjoy! She consists of a gorgeous fit and flare silhouette that will show off and flatter all natural curves of the bride. On top, Raquel has a beautiful large floral lace that is complemented with iridescent shimmering sequins. Together they are the perfect combination!

Beginning with her bodice, Raquel has a stunning deep plunge neckline that is filled in with small mesh piece in order to hold together the bodice, leaving no chance of worry for the bride! Beneath all the detail and lace, Raquel is constructed with strong boning that keeps a structured bodice and ensures the dress stays in place the entire day: sitting, dancing, and all! She is then finished with delicate beaded spaghetti straps that give the perfect transition into her back.

Raquel’s back makes a statement by itself! It consists of a sexy, low, scoop back with illusion mesh lace that lets the bride show just the right amount of skin. The mesh is then enclosed with buttons, and who doesn’t love buttons! Moving down to the train, Raquel has an alluring long train that will graciously flow with the bride. The lining of the train stops about a foot shorter than the top layer of lace which showcases the lace even more and creates a light and airy train that will be easy to bustle (the bridesmaids will thank the bride later)!

Raquel is available in a variety of different colors which will allow all brides to find their perfect match! Those colors include: ivory/ivory, champagne/nude/ivory, diamond white/ivory, white/white, ivory/nude/ivory (shown in store pictures), and sorbet/nude/ivory. She also has the unique ability to be ordered lined (shown in store photos) and unlined (see model photo below).

She’s Great For: Raquel is great for a classy bride who is looking for a touch of modern day features. Her floral lace, fitted shape, and lightweight fabric is the ideal blend for a summer wedding. They will keep the bride looking good AND feeling good (which is most important of course)! She will pair well with a variety of different venues too! While her floral lace will match an outdoor venue that’s filled with flowers and greenery, her classic look and shape will complement a classic venue (barn, for example) and rustic vibes as well!

What Makes Her Special: What makes Raquel from Beloved special is her underlayer split! This split is a unique feature that allows the bride to have some fun and show the perfect amount of leg! This split is solely in the lining of the dress, so the mesh lace layer on top still comes intact all around, and also allows the bride to show off her stunning shoes as well; whatever they may be! And the best part is that she can be ordered without the slit too, so if the bride doesn’t love that detail it can be made without!

Wedding Dress Wednesday: Stella York Style 7424

Meet: Style 7424

Designer: Stella York

Stella York Style #7424
Stella York Style #7424

Why we love her: Stella York’s style 7424 is a bold and beaded beauty. A structured bodice juxtaposes a flowy and bouncy skirt. This dress is a modern princess dream. The bodice is covered in delicate beading while her ball-gown skirt is tiered with voluminous layers. The bodice is supported by thin spaghetti straps; the straps are lined with silver beads and pearls.

The neckline is a classic V-shape, and the backline is a deeper V-shape. The open back will keep brides cool underneath all the beading. Front and back, the bodice is covered with bead patterns reminiscent of Cinderella’s carriage; this dress is certainly fit for a princess. The Diamante beading is a mix of pearls, silver beads, and sequins; the resulting effect is enchanting. This combination gives dimension to the bodice and highlights the intricate patterns. Brides will be able to find their perfect accessories with the mixed beading as well. The bodice is unlined, but brides are able to line it in alterations to their specific preferences if they wish.

Stella York style 7424’s bodice stops at the natural waist, where a tiered ballgown skirt starts to flow out. The lush skirt has soft, cascading layers of tulle flowing downward. Each tier of the tulle skirt is finished with a stripe of horsehair; this helps the skirt hold its volume and shape. Brides will look as if they are floating on air while they walk down the aisle in this gown. The lightweight material of the skirt will not weigh brides down; they will be able to dance all night long! The juxtaposition of the flowy skirt and the beaded bodice is dramatic yet elegant; they are two puzzle pieces that fit together perfectly. The train is chapel-length and with the fullness of the tiered skirt, the train does not need to be an extravagant length to make an extravagant statement.

The train will glide down the aisle behind brides as they make the grandest of entrances. The layered skirt will camouflage the bustle so brides can party all night long! A zipper closure holds the dress shut, and four buttons with rhinestone centers hide the zipper– a super sweet and romantic detail! This stunning wedding dress is available in Ivory with the Diamante beading, Ivory with all-ivory beading, or White with all-white beading. 

She’s great for: Summer brides searching for those fairy tale princess vibes! The ballgown silhouette is dramatic yet lightweight. The open back and unlined bodice means brides will be able to keep cool in the gown, and they should feel any breeze that blows their way! Outdoor summer weddings can get hot, and this dress is the perfect solution for that. Venues that would complement 7424 include gardens, estates, and country clubs.

Gorgeous diamante beaded bodice

What makes her special: the beading on this gown can come in Diamante, which is the mixed beading described above, and it is the beading style that is on our sample gown in the store. Stella York also creates this gown in all ivory beading or all white beading. This allows brides to customize their gown and pick the coloring that suits them best. Brides can pick which beading will match their accent colors and accessories to create their dream wedding look!

Meet: Nico

Designer: L’Amour Bridal

Nico by L’Amour

Why We Love Her: Flirtatious. Romantic. Whimsical. Nico says it all! Her silhouette is a flattering a-line with a plunging v-neck neckline that will compliment every bride. The bodice then gradually leads up into thin mesh spaghetti straps, leaving an open neckline and allowing the attention to stay on the bodice. Extending up the straps and into the back, she has a sexy and low open scoop back that perfectly compliments the open neckline in the front!

The unique and stunning details on the bodice of Nico

Nico’s bodice is a stunning focal point of this dress! It consists of three main types of lace and detail which will leave the wedding guests shocked! It all begins with the first layer of glitter lace… that’s right, a thin delicate layer of detailing that is outlined in glitter! On top of that, she has a gorgeous applique lace that is shaped into leaves and vines and covers the majority of the dress. Then, to top it off, there are 3D floral appliques that pop off the dress, creating dimension and volume!

Moving down the skirt, the appliques and 3D florals gracefully cascade down throughout the entire dress and train. And because of the patchy lace design, this dress still captivates the light, airy, and romantic features without being too much! Finishing off the hem of the skirt and train, there is even a small horsehair lining that will allow the dress to flowy freely and beautifully all night long!

Nico's Illusion train makes an ethereal statement and a sweet, lightweight bustle

This beautiful dress is available in two gorgeous colors: ivory/ivory and ivory/ light nude (pictured). Both of these colors are paired with a skin illusion mesh that will be found in the bodice area to softly blend the dress to the bride’s skin tone! If that is not the look you want, do not worry, L’Amour also offers Nico with a lined bodice option that will fill in the top illusion mesh and make the dress more uniform throughout!

She’s Great For: A fun and outgoing bride! Her flirty and exciting details are a perfect match for a bubbly bride who knows how to have a good time!

Wedding Dress Wednesday: India by Madi Lane

Meet: India

Designer: Madi Lane

Why We Love Her:

India is a modern day wedding dress that will be sure to make a statement. She is known for her unique bold lace that will be seen from any distance. This lace covers the entirety of the dress, making it lay perfectly all night long. It even extends up the neckline, making for a perfect transition into the thin, spaghetti straps!

India’s neckline is every bride’s ideal shape. She has a gorgeous circular shaped v-neck with a slight plunge dip. Lining the edge of the neckline is the overlapping lace that ever-so-slightly hangs over the edge, allowing the dress to have no harsh cuts or lines! The spaghetti strap then perfectly transitions into the low v-back design. Again, matching the same concepts from the front, the lace extends past the edges!

India has a Low scooped out back with invisible zip close

Moving down from the open back, India has a gorgeous short and manageable train that will gracefully follow every movement the bride makes without being a hassle! This train has an asymmetrical hem that ties perfectly in with the neckline edging! With all this detail, Madi Lane ensured that India will be captivating from every angle!

Looking for comfort? India will not disappoint! She is going to be by far the most comfortable dress a bride tries on, making them never want to take her off! With her charmeuse stretch lining, the bride will not only look good, but feel good. Eating, dancing, sitting…. there will be no worry or hesitation doing any of those things. The bride will not even have to think twice! She will have the freedom to move and dance anyway she wants (she can even drop it low 😉 )!

India is available in ivory/nude, all ivory, and ivory/sand. Depending on the specific look the bride is looking for, changing the underlay color can convert the dress to fit multiple different vibes without any detail getting lost!

From the back you can see all the lace detail of India, especially in the sand color
From the back you can see all the lace detail

She’s Great For:

India is great for a bohemian bride and themed wedding. For a more traditional wedding, it will pair perfectly with lots of florals, earthy greenery, free-spirited centerpieces, and an outdoor venue. India will also be the ideal dress for any type of destination wedding or beach wedding due to the compatibility for traveling and wrinkle free material. Madi Lane dresses are designed in Australia and it is from that location that you can picture the beauty of this dress outdoors. Italy, Bahamas, Grand Canyon, Hawaii, you name it and India will complement it! She will perfectly condense for easy packing and the bride will not even have to worry about steaming it afterwards.

What Makes Her Special:

What makes India special above all else is her detachable flutter sleeves! Matching the exact pattern of the lace from the dress, these sleeves will be a bohemian brides dream! With the unique ability to attach and detach as the bride pleases, these straps can completely transform the look of the dress! Pictures can be taken with and without the straps and the bride can opt to wear them for half the night and then remove them when the dancing begins!

Wedding Dress Wednesday: Cindy by Morilee

Meet Cindy
Designer: Morilee

Why we love her: Cindy by Morilee is an exquisite creation. She has it all: sparkling applique, glitter tulle, an illusion back. She starts it all off with an incredible off-the-shoulder neckline. A scalloped shape gives the neckline a soft edge; there is nothing harsh about it. Lace appliques peak up over the edge of the neckline slightly, and a plunge in the middle adds a little spice to this very sweet look.

The neckline sits just off of the shoulders, and it leads to stunning lace, long sleeves. The sleeves have floral appliques on them, and buttons at the bottom finish them off nicely. Because the sleeves are made of tulle, they are lightweight and will not cause brides to overheat! The tulle base with the appliques on top also creates a stunning illusion of lace on skin.

Gorgeous applique covers Cindy from top to bottom. A combination of leaves and flowers, such as roses, makes Cindy perfect for brides who love classic floral details. A bouquet with roses will match the gown seamlessly and create a cohesive look. Sequins are stitched into the applique itself, which provides a subtle glow. A layer of shimmery glitter tulle rests beneath the applique for a delicate and light sparkle. She glows in the light from every angle! 

Cindy’s silhouette is a classic fit and flare. She is fitted from the bodice down through the hips, and she gently floats out around the knees. She is sure to show off brides’ figures! Cindy’s illusion back is decorated with more sparkly, floral applique. An edging of flowers lines the top, and more appliques flare up from the sides. A row of buttons cascades down the length of the bodice and onto the skirt. A cathedral length train elevates the back of the dress even more. Flowers decorate the train, and the train has a scalloped edge.

Cindy will match venues like churches because of her train, gardens because of her flowers, and country clubs because of her elegance. She is perfect for brides who want to show off her curves without being too sexy or over-the-top.

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!

Time to Preserve Your Wedding Dress

If you are a Fall 2021-Winter 2022 bride, it’s time to preserve your gorgeous wedding dress!

Preserve your wedding dress, kits and pick-ups at Darianna Bridal  Tuxedo
Dress Preservation kits and pick-ups at our store

Why preserve?

A wedding dress is the single most important piece of clothing there is by many women. It’s no wonder there is such concern regarding preserving these gowns, whether it’s to keep as a memory of your best day ever or to pass on to another. One thing is for sure – you can’t leave her stuffed in a bag in the closet!

Unfortunately, many brides don’t realize the importance of wedding dress preservation until many months or even years after their wedding. Wedding dress preservation should be the first step one attends to after returning from a honeymoon.

Wedding dresses come in different styles, colors, and fabrics, all of which may need special attention. Lace will require a different cleaning method than silk, and the same goes for cleaning a wine stain versus a sweat stain. Beading is especially tricky to properly clean. Check the tag or label on the dress to determine if it has special care instructions related to dry cleaning or the type of chemicals that may be used on the dress.

Be cautious of going to a standard dry cleaner even if they say they can clean wedding dresses. As a rule of thumb, it is best to research and then choose a professional cleaner or preservationist who specializes in cleaning wedding gowns.

Fortunately, your research does not have to take you far! Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo uses a company that has been preserving wedding gowns for over a hundred years. They are so good and trustworthy at providing this service that we use them to clean our sample gowns in our store! They are returned to us looking like new.

The dress is organically cleaned, pressed, and preserved. It is placed in a beautiful display box and comes with a handy carrying case. The service also includes 3 basic accessories (veil, jacket, garter, gloves, etc.) for preservation at no extra charge. Include a program, hanger, or special memento for inclusion and display through the oval window.

Wedding dress preservation is also a thoughtful gift idea. If you know a bride recently married or soon to be married, call or come in for a gift card for her to use for this wonderful service. This is a great gift for bridal parties to present to their bride as well.

Darianna Brides get a special discount, too!

Don’t let that beauty that made you cry happy tears sit in the closet! Preserve her and get excited all over again! No appointment necessary! Just stop in and drop it off and it will be returned in 4-6 weeks ready to be reunited with you again. Call or text with any questions 215-491-8500!
