Style 3667 is our Dress Of The Week! This dress has a great balance of vintage and contemporary details. This strapless dress has an embroidered bodice with a satin pleated cummerbund and is decorated by a flower detail that adds a touch of sweetness. The organza A-line skirt has embroidered appliques and brings some drama with a chapel train. This dress is shown in alabaster/ivory but is also available in white. 

 

Why I love it: The organza A-line skirt is flowy, delicate and elegant which brings out the perfect amount of femininity and charm for a bride.

Perfect for:The light organza skirt makes it a perfect fit for a summer wedding whether it’s indoors or outdoors.

Designer Tony Mentel says: I wanted to include the designer’s thoughts about his gorgeous creation. Here’s what he shared with us, “This dress has a real 1950's feeling about it, there is a sweet elegance to it, imagine Doris Day or Audrey Hepburn. I designed the Rose Embroidery based on an original 1950's couture design, I saw in a Paris Couture Vintage Store. It creates dimensional just by the yarns being sewn in different directions. The Organza Skirt makes the dress move well and adds a light summer feel to it.”

My pick for Dress of the Week is style 3656. This strapless satin sweetheart has a 2-inch satin bias band. The bodice has beaded lace with a Basque waist that continues with a full tulle skirt. There is delicate scattered beading on the skirt and has a lace up back. The dress is shown in Ivory/Blush but it’s also available in Ivory/Silver and White/Silver.

Why I love itThe beaded work throughout the dress is simply gorgeous! If you want to add some sparkle without blinding your guests this is the perfect dress. I can already picture how the subtle beading throughout the skirt will sparkle when the couple steps onto the dance floor for their first dance.

Perfect forThe bride who wants to feel like a true princess! It’s the full tulle skirt and the way the bodice hits at the hips just right that makes this dress perfect for a fairytale wedding.
