Featured Wedding Dress: Carrie by Casablanca Bridal

Meet Carrie!
Designer: Casablanca Bridal

Carrie by Casablanca bridal is a classic beaded beauty

Why we love her: Carrie is an absolute stunner of a gown. Her intricate details make a statement that is sure to wow each and every guest. She works wonderfully with all body types and wedding vibes. From her beaded bodice to her sparkle tulle to her deep, plunging back, she is extraordinary through and through, top to bottom. 

Carrie is on the cusp of an a-line and a ballgown. Her skirt has layers of tulle that create a soft and romantic look, and a layer of sparkle tulle adds a delicate shimmer to her. Brides wearing this beauty will shine from all angles! Her layers are lightweight, so brides won’t feel weighed down as they wear her. Her silhouette is timeless, and her detail is immaculate.

Her bodice is pristinely decorated with a mix of beading. Pearls, crystals, silver beads, and iridescent beads come together seamlessly in vine and leaf patterns. The beaded patterns cover the bodice completely, and they extend down over the waistline. This softens the natural waistline by avoiding a harsh transition.

The mixed beads add dimension to the bodice and give it fairy tale vibes. Carrie’s neckline has a deep plunge, perfect for brides looking to add a little spice to a gown this sweet. Double spaghetti straps with beaded detailing keep the gown secure all night long, so brides can dance the night away without a second thought.

All of the elegance and detail on the front of the dress is reflected on her back as well. The same exquisite beading patterns wrap around the dress to the back. Carrie has an illusion back; the beading looks like it is laying directly on the bride’s skin. Illusion backs and the dreamy effect they give are commonly sought after by brides. It is a great way to show a little skin while wearing a gown with a fuller skirt.

The plunging neckline in the front is mirrored in the back as well with a deep scoop shape. She has a cathedral-length train, so walking down the aisle will be a dramatic moment for brides, guests, everyone!

What makes her special: her beading! The sheer amount of beads on this gown is astonishing, and their placement is nothing short of masterful, in true Casablanca Bridal fashion. It is common for gowns to place beading on top of lace appliques to enhance the applique, but her beading is the star of the show.

The beading itself makes the vine and leaf pattern, it is not placed on top of vine and leaf lace appliques. The mixture of the type of beads used gives Carrie an ethereal glimmer, perfect for brides looking for their fairy tale wedding dress!

Carrie can also come with detachable tulle bishop sleeves with the matching beading at the cuffs, or add off the shoulder straps to complete a cold shoulder look! A dress not to be overlooked during your search for the perfect wedding dress!
