The look: Heart motif on the embellished bodice with intricate rhinestone embroidery
The Designer: Sans Pareil
The Details: Here is a dress that proves glamour can apply to modest dress choices too. This dress has a fully covered bodice with a high scoop neckline. Swirls of luxurious embellishments fashioned out of crystal, rhinestone and silver beads spiral all over the sheer overlay yoke. These spirals subtly form a heart motif in the center, creating a significant effect that can only be noticed from afar. The bodice continues into a misty tulle skirt that is very bridal.
The look: Glamour in the back
The designer: Mori Lee
The details: You needn’t confine your glamorous look to the front of your gown. After all, if you will be wed in a house of worship, it is likely that your guests will get a good look at the back of your dress during the ceremony. So, how about spicing things up at the back a little? The Mori Lee dress does this with pizzazz! The front of the gown features a sweetheart neckline embellished with lace and with beaded straps that extend into a halter-style neckline. However, the true surprise lies in the back of the dress. The entire back has crystal-embellished floral spirals that extend from the center into a flourish of petals that spread outwards. This is a detail that is going to keep your guests enchanted throughout the ceremony.
The Look: Astonishing details in the back of the dress
The designer: Mori Lee
The details: Just like the previous Mori Lee beauty we saw, the Mori Lee gown is another ravishing beauty that has a surprise in the back. What appears to be a beautiful lace applique’s encrusted front extends into a sheer yoke at the back. On this yoke, amazing strands of floral appliques flutter out from the center outwardly. The barely-there sheer layer has an effect that resembles embellished appliques hanging in the air. This signature element adds an air of uniqueness to the dress. Adding more excitement to the overall design is a thin fabric-covered strand of buttons that extends to the derriere. Although the rest of the gown also contains rich and luxuriant lace appliques, these details pale in front of the glamorous back details that the gown features.
