This week’s dress is Ofelia from the Modeca 2013 collection by Enzoani. This strapless tulle gown has a fitted ruched bodice that is not only flattering but gives the dress a fun texture. The bottom of the dress is layered tulle that has the perfect amount of volume. Throughout the dress there are subtle floral appliqués for a touch of elegance. This gown is available in white or ivory.
This week we bring you a dress from Pronovias’ 2014 pre-collection. This floor length gown has a beautiful mermaid skirt made with tulle and nylon frills that will give the allusion that you’re floating as you walk. The strapless neckline is created with feathers, which is my favorite part of this dress. This gown is part of the dreams collection for 2014, and we can see why! Its shape and material give it such a romantic and whimsical feel.
This week we chose a wedding dress that is far from traditional. Kimberly by Vera Wang is a bold red, floor length dress with several different textures. These gorgeous textures start at the neckline, with hand-cut Chantilly lace applique placed so that the edges of the lace sit against your skin like semi-transparent wisps of flower petals, or springtime leaf buds. The uninterrupted layers of organza have perfect fluidity as there are no seams between the skirt and bodice. There’s also a ruffled, cascading effect in the bottom of the skirt. An almost-obscured, big, abstract flower floats in the base of the skirt – just a little burst of pleated tulle and eyelash tissue organza that is so lighthearted and joyous. On the back of the gown there is a beautiful, voluminous train that is tacked and bustled, with floating pieces of lace appliqué inserted into the organza layers that pop. This gown is the definition of controlled chaos.
This dress of the week is part of Sarah Jassir’s collection. The Iris is a tulle ball gown with organza ruched bodice with lace appliques. Just this past week, Sarah Jassir’s bridal salon announced its opening in New York City. This particular dress is from a collection inspired by the “creative process” itself. Congratulations Sarah Jassir and thank you for all your stunning dresses.

I just absolutely love the intricately fitted bodice on top paired with layer upon layer of tulle creating a wedding extravaganza!! This dress exudes chic sophistication and fantasy fun all in one! Absolutely LOVE! What are your thoughts?
This dress of the week is by Liancarlo. The Miami-based company was established in 1981 by designer Carlos Ramirez. Lincarlo creates evening dresses as well as bridal gowns, and everything the company produces is 100% made in the USA.
My favorite thing about this dress is that not only is it available in the traditional white or ivory, it is also made in shell (shown). The crystal-beaded and embroidered tulle is fashioned as a fit and flare, strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline and skirt petals. It also has a beaded pearl/crystal sash in platinum. The details on this dress are incredible! What do you think?
This week’s dress of the week is by Alvina Valenta. This elegant gown is a one shoulder tulle bridal ball gown with a chantilly lace bodice and tulle illusion overlay. It has beautiful silk ribbon and flower detail at the natural waist with a swirling multi-tiered tulle skirt and horsehair detail. This dress, offered in white and ivory, is sure to “wow” you!
Orange Blossom by Claire Pettibone is this week’s pick for Dress of the Week. It is a mermaid-style gown embellished with ivory and silver flowers on tulle. Floor length with a flattering square neckline and barely-there embellished cap sleeves, it is the back of this gown that truly won our hearts.
This fairytale gown is a strapless sweetheart with an all over sequin design that will give you just the right amount of sparkle. The natural waist is accented by an elaborate beaded band. The dress has buttons over the back zipper for an elegant look. The tulle circular skirt and chapel length train are sure to make you feel like a princess on your special day!
