Designer: Eddy K
Why we love her:
First and foremost, Eddy K’s Meredith is the ideal, dreamy ballgown. Composed of beaded lace, pleated tulle, and a dramatic silhouette, she is perfect for brides looking to go big, literally, on their special day. This bold beauty has a strapless sweetheart neckline with a beaded edge; she comes with detachable beaded straps for brides who are seeking more support. Sweetheart necklines are romantic, timeless, and a bridal favorite.
The bodice is made of pleated tulle and features exposed boning which gives the dress a fresh, modern twist. Intricately beaded floral and leafy lace appliques decorate the front and back of the bodice and give Meredith a gentle shimmer. A slight, delicate layer of Chantilly lace rests beneath the pleated tulle and appliques. This sweet detail is subtle but thoughtful, and it gives Meredith more dimension in her bodice.
Additionally, Meredith has a classic ballgown silhouette. A full, flowy tulle skirt compliments the highly structured bodice. Layers of light tulle keep the dress feeling airy despite how voluminous it is. The top layer of tulle is pleated; this special design feature sets Meredith apart from any other ballgowns in the store. Of course, the pleating adds texture and dimension to the gown and gives her a real ‘wow’ factor! Spinning around the dance floor with this pleated tulle skirt will be an unforgettable moment.
On the back of her bodice…
There are a row of buttons that covers the zipper. This thoughtful detail makes for great getting-ready photo opportunities and adds an additional romantic element to this gown. The buttons camouflage the zipper and create a seamless-looking closure. A short, circular train flows from the tulle skirt. A long train is not necessary on a gown with this much volume because there is a lot of drama happening already. Without a long train, the gown provides good mobility for walking down the aisle and twirling around on the dance floor all night long!
She’s perfect for:
Provided that, Meredith is for brides who are looking for a traditional ballgown silhouette with elevated, modern features. She is luxurious, romantic, and feminine. Her exposed boning and pleated tulle skirt are fresh and chic, while her neckline and fullness are classic bridal elements. Above all, Meredith’s design does not restrict her to a specific season. Brides getting married any time of the year can pull her off. Meredith is fit for grand venues, like historic estates, boutique hotels, and upscale ballrooms.
What makes her special:
Overall, when people think of ball gowns, something super sparkly usually pops into mind. Meredith is special because she does not need all the glitz and glam to make an impact. This gown brings all the drama that ballgowns should, yet she is also refined and sophisticated. Similarly, her full pleated skirt is absolutely mesmerizing and unlike anything else in our store. It is beautifully juxtaposed with a corset-style bodice, adorned with thoughtfully placed appliques. These also include Chantilly lace and buttons. Ultimately, she’s a masterpiece from Eddy K. She is available in our store in all ivory for a timeless and traditional look, or she can come with a champagne tone for a warmer vibe!
