Taylor by Maggie Sottero
We fell absolutely in love when we first saw Taylor - we are already dreaming of her being worn during a gorgeous winter wedding!

Her open v back is sexy yet sophisticated and we love how princess-y the volume of her skirt is. This is truly a gown for someone ready to have the ultimate Disney wedding, complete with eye-catching color and extended train!

This chic yet classic ballgown courtesy of Essense of Australia is sure to be a hit among ladies who want a more traditional feel with a modern twist! The trickling lace appliques flow through the skirt and are also on the back of the train; there is gorgeous white and crystal beading throughout the bodice; the v neckline is mirrored with v side-cut outs, adding extra sexiness while also giving support. This baby is gorgeous in ivory, but even more stunning in the champagne "Moscato" color!
Diamanda by Madeline Gardner New York
Diamanda is from Madeline Gardner's couture collection, which explains why this dress is a stunner. It's hard to tell in the pictures, but this baby SPARKLES. She is absolutely covered, head to town, in pearl and crystal detailing, making her the perfect option for someone wanting to make a big entrance. We love her illusion top and long sleeves, especially since the detailing trickles down the dress, letting your beautiful collar bones and shoulder blades shine! The romantic button detail on the back keeps this dress classy, yet sexy!

Harper (D8205) by Val Stefani
Harper is literally our most voluminous gown in the store - so if you're looking for DRAMA in your skirt volume, this is your girl! She features multiple layers of lace, sequin detailing throughout the entire dress, and cute, off-the-shoulder sleeves for a touch of whimsy. While this dress comes in ivory, we've been diggin' the "Cashmere" under color this dress comes in! The lace appliques feature bold floral accents, making this perfect for a bride who is planning on making a statement with her flowers as well. A delicate under layer of soft, chantilly lace creates visual dimension in the skirt while also keeping this dress timeless!
Fatima by Maggie Sottero
Want to feel like a princess, but not a big fan of lace and sparkle? For brides who like clean simplicity, Fatima is a perfect variation of modern and cool. The ruffle handkerchief skirt adds tons of volume and dimension in the skirt while also making it manageable for your after party/reception. The thick straps and plunging neckline look great on all body types and the ever-popular side cut outs allow for more breathability but also a spark of sexy. A subtle, white-beaded belt accents the waist and gives this dress just the touch of sparkle it needs to feel bridal.
