Like most modern brides, Marlene 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 celebration. She also wanted her gown to be sexy, but subtle.
And so we made Marlene an ivory mermaid gown with an illusion mesh neckline. We embellished the bodice with beaded, embroidered lace and detailed the keyhole back with buttons. The skirt, that flared from the knee, was made up of layers of tulle.
I think the end result was simply stunning. It’s fun, flirty, sexy and stylish – everything I’ve come to know this beautiful bride to be. ♥
