Martin Thornburg for Mon Cheri Bridal Gown Alleen / 116217:
A garden of Alencon lace flowers, re-embroidered for texture and lightly hand-beaded for sparkle, bloom over the bodice of David Tutera for Mon Cheri Alleen, a taffeta wedding dress with glamorous structure and a dramatic chapel train. Offering a rich impression of grandeur with taffeta's classic sheen beautifully emphasized by the folds of a box-pleated skirt, this romantic ball gown is perfect for an evening wedding where the formality of its full silhouette and traditional fabric can be appreciated. The simplicity of its adornment, though, is also perfect for less formal affairs, adding just a hint of traditional grace and polish to a bridal look that's wonderful with loose hair or a braided updo. The lace appliqués of David Tutera for Mon Cheri Alleen cascade past the slightly dropped waistline in tendrils that open to make way for the bold box pleats – and also conceal the side pockets that give this wedding dress a touch of modern character. Button closures at the back complete a tailored look that flatteringly shapes the bodice around your torso. Sold with two styles of optional straps, this exquisite memory taffeta ball gown provides all the elegance and convertibility of modern dress design with a gloriously traditional, richly tailored silhouette.
These elements of design give David Tutera for Mon Cheri Alleen its formal drama:
