Think classic, clean, elegance and you have the Mia gown. Off the shoulder and yet covered with lace sleeves, this gown says polished in every way. The smooth full skirt and covered buttons down the back are absolute perfection.
Can we tell you about the "WOWS" we heard when steaming and hanging this gown in the shop! The woman who chooses the Lilliana gown won't need to be overly confident, because this dress does all of the talking. The flowing, tiered, floral skirt is a stunner and the chic, minimalist white bodice with a deep V come together to make the coolest gown for any bride. This is for the bride who wants the hush as she walks down the aisle to turn to gasps of praise. Add a veil and a smile and you'll long live in everyone's memory.
Like the Lilliana just above, this gown is a showstopper, and not for the obvious reasons. No, it is not white, cream, blush, or the latest trend - black. Did you lovely readers know that until Queen Victoria, wedding gowns were any fancy gown of choice? This meant colors, patterns, and textures of all sorts. It was only when the diminutive young Queen decided to wear all white and use the lace of London (they needed the work) that brides everywhere began to follow suit... or gown as it were.
Now, back to this gown. The folds in the bodice, the draping shortish sleeves, and the matching front and back of this gown make it not only unique, but incredibly pretty, feminine and right for all shapes and heights. The full skirt brings its own train of sorts, so the walk down the aisle will have drama.
Finally, from Cailyn Lea is the Raya gown and if you love lace, you may want to start with this one. It is head to toe lace, overlaying a nude sheath. The front has a swooping open bodice and the sleeves are incredible. They land just at the elbow, a detail that looks wonderful on every bride. The back showcases a deep V, a long line of buttons and the fitted skirt leads to a pool of lace. The Raya is a knock-out of a gown.
