As always we give you the best deal possible on the dress so a spotlight on the details will assure you that you are getting much more than you bargained for!
|This Pronovias A-Line might not look like much at first but off the hangar and on your body you just won’t want to take it off! It is made of a rare kind of Chinese silk called Shantung named after the beautiful region of the country in which it is made. While it is typical for bridal gowns this particular shantung is of pristine quality and holds its shape very well. With a modified sweetheart neckline and fuller skirt this is a gown that will flatter and please as you dance the night away. It is a little more of an off-white or ivory color which look divine on a every skin tone as opposed to a harsh bright white. The bodice is ruched asymmetrically to really show off and emphasize curves while still remaining very classy. In fact, classic, is the name of this game. With this Pronovias A-Line you can accentuate with over the top jewelry and heels or channel your inner Audrey Hepburn by keeping it classic with pearls and a chignon. The bodice has a drop-waist effect to make you look slim and trim and with the gown more than 50% off its original price your wallet won’t have to go on a diet either!
|On the other hand this Monique Lhullier A-Line will make it look as though you spent a fortune! Luckily you don’t have to. Also more than 50% off this gown is made of the more traditional silk organza although it feels nothing like anything you have ever felt before. The kind of silk that runs through your hands like water yet still retains a beautiful shape, this gown will want to live on your body. The most flattering aspect of this gown is the ruched bodice with the cut sweetheart neckline. A little edgier than the classic it is still modest yet modern. A much smaller train the silk organza flirts with the hemline in tiny ruffles for a very sweet effect to offset the edgy cut at the top of the bodice. Extremely slimming this gown has a low back for added sexiness and buttons to the end of the bodice.
While both of these dresses are A-Line and ivory they each are hidden gems. They are both wonderful for every kind of wedding and are thus some of our most versatile picks.
