Designer: Beloved Bridal by Casablanca
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!
