Wedding Dress Wednesday: Callie by Beloved

Meet: Callie

Designer: Beloved by Casablanca

Why we love her: Callie is a fan favorite at Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo! This romantic a-line appeals to brides of all tastes with her perfect blend of lace, shimmer, and color. She has a gorgeous structured bodice that provides just the right amount of support while the plunged neckline adds a touch of spice.

Delicate, beaded spaghetti straps lead into the low, scooped illusion back. A small row of buttons and loops hold the illusion together and is the perfect touch to a back that pretty!

A gorgeous leafy lace begins at the bodice and trickles down the skirt, tapering off to give the gown just the right amount of detail without being overwhelming. Sequins adorn the lace to give the bride just a touch of shimmer as she makes her way down the aisle! A small train cascades behind with lace and tulle framing the shortened underlay beautifully. Callie comes in Nude, Champagne, Ivory, and White.

She’s perfect for: This is a dress that is perfect for all brides! It is rare to find a gown that is versatile enough to work for brides of all sizes and aesthetics, but Callie is that gown. We have her in store in sizes 2, 8, 12, and 18 curvy cut, and she looks incredible on every bride who tries her on. The various color options also make the gown perfect for a range of brides, and often the color choice comes down to the bride’s venue! The nude color looks incredible at weddings with outdoor ceremonies and fall color palettes while the ivory fits seamlessly at country club or ballroom weddings!

Love Callie but wish she had maybe a little more sparkle or a thicker strap? We have brides fall in love with her but think she would be perfect with just a little tweak. Casablanca will fix that for you! We have seen variations of this gown arrive with a later of glitter tulle added, two sets of spaghetti straps, a higher neckline, and much more. We even had a bride who reconstructed it to be drop waist, strapless, and off the shoulder! The flexibility of making the dress into exactly what the bride is looking for really elevates a gown already so gorgeous.

What makes her special: One look at Callie and you will see exactly what makes her special! This is a dress that has it all. A flattering fit, a flowy skirt without all the volume, a sweet sweep train, and some subtle shimmer. There’s a little bit of everything without being too much of everything! 

She also has a matching fingertip length veil that can be ordered in chapel, cathedral, and royal lengths. The fingertip length veil has lace that begins more toward the elbow so as to not detract from the gorgeous bodice and spaghetti straps! With a cathedral veil, you can keep your cute sweep train with the manageable bustle and still get the dramatic, traditional look. Callie’s versatility and fit gives a bride everything she needs to feel confident and beautiful on her big day!
