Martin Thornburg for Mon Cheri Bridal Gown Leora / 116231:
From flourishing vintage sensibilities and a mature appreciation of fashion history to a playful, innocently romantic ball gown style, David Tutera for Mon Cheri Leora is a perfectly convertible, utterly memorable modern wedding attire that lets you shift your look throughout the big day – or just enjoy the unconventional layering and lovely use of contrasting fabrics. The basis of this gorgeous three-piece wedding dress ensemble is a full A-line gown with a skirt of gathered memory taffeta, alluding to classic party-dress looks but adding formality with its chapel train. A strapless lace cutwork bodice bares the shoulders, though it can be supported with two styles of detachable straps if you choose, and adds a hint of heirloom texture to the pretty sheen and soft flow of structured taffeta. Cover your arms for a traditional church wedding – or just add something totally unique, yet delightfully antique, to your look – with David Tutera for Mon Cheri Leora’s included organza jacket. A collared style with poetic bishop sleeves and covered buttons closing it at the front, this layer is both romantic and smartly tailored. With or without the jacket, the cummerbund-style pleated sash, made from taffeta that matches the skirt, is a waist-emphasizing finish to a dress with remarkable visual power and a perfectly timeless presence.
