This timeless dropped-waist ballgown, Mori Lee Monique, is designed with a light and thoughtful hand, yielding a beautiful contrast between bodice and skirt that feels so regal from the candlelit aisle to the first dance. The lace detailing, which covers the bodice from its scalloped straps and sweetheart neckline to the nicely fitted line of the hips, is a classic small-scale floral that hints at history even as it dazzles the modern eye with skillful crystal beading. Equally elaborate floral lace blooms over the sheer illusion back, complementing the sweetly tailored closure: a row of covered buttons. But Mori Lee Monique’s details are enhanced by a gorgeous contrasting simplicity: the soft waves of tulle that make up the flaring A-line skirt, which fall in airy, dynamic folds rippled by the quiet enhancement of a broad horsehair hem. The result: A classic confection of a wedding gown.
