Marlene had a few prerequisites. Like most modern brides she wanted to be comfortable – she didn’t want to spend her day pulling and tugging her gown. She wanted to enjoy her dress and wear it throughout the ceremony and celebrations. Moreover, Marlene wanted to look to look sexy, but subtly so.
Striking and glamorous, Marlene’s ivory mermaid-style wedding gown was fashioned from thick stretch with a mesh neckline. The heart-shaped bodice was embellished with embroidered and beaded lace, while the keyhole back was adorned with fabricated buttons. From above the knee, layers of tulle created a dramatic flared frill – lending this beautiful dress a touch of added debonair and class.
Fun and flirty, sexy yet stylish – Marlene was a breathtakingly beautiful bride!
