Designer: Morilee by Madeline Gardener
Why We Love Her: Fortunata is filled with luxurious details! Glitter, beading, appliques: this fit and flare dress has it all! Throughout the entirety of this dress, there is endless detail that creates a glorious dimension. Beginning with her shape, the fitted bodice and flared bottom and train is the perfect combination for a bride who is looking to show off her figure!
Her bodice consists of a v-neckline with a dazzling deep illusion plunge as well as mesh side cutouts. With those two features alone, she is sure to flatter all body types by creating an elongated hourglass figure! On top, Fortunata has beautiful floral and leaf lace appliques that cover the entirety of the bodice and gently cascade down the skirt and train. On top of the appliques, there are dainty iridescent beads that only add to the detail!
From the top of the bodice into the soft illusion v-back, she has thin spaghetti beaded straps that create the perfect transition by incorporating the beading. Moving down the back, she has gorgeous glittered tulle buttons that connect the illusion mesh and cover the zipper to make the bride’s booty pop! Below the zipper, the laced and glittered tulle layers romantically flare out into the luminous long train!
Fortunata is available in three different color choices: ivory/porcelain (shown on in-store pics), ivory/honey, and ivory/cappuccino/honey. These choices change the color of the underliner and mesh that is within the dress, allowing the bride to have flexibility when deciding how scandalous she wants to be! The designer Morilee also offers her dresses in three different hem lengths to allow brides of all heights to have little to no hem in alterations!
She’s Great For: Making a grand entrance at a summer wedding! With all of her details glowing in the sunlight as she walks down the aisle, the bride will leave every guest holding back tears. And the best part is that despite all the detail that fills the dress, she is very lightweight, allowing the bride to stay comfortable in hot temperatures all day long!
What Makes Her Special: Her unique dimension! Due to her mix of thick glitter tulle, 3D floral appliques, and beading, Fortunata features are outstanding. Brides will fall head over heels for her, and she will leave the wedding guests in awe. She will definitely not fail to impress from the first try on to the moment the bride walks down the aisle!
