Martin Thornburg for Mon Cheri Bridal Gown Ellie / 215279:
Make an effortless switch from the blissful sweetness of lush lace and modest coverage to the classic simplicity of bridal satin when you choose David Tutera Ellie for your wedding. This luxury wedding dress combines a sweeping traditional ballgown with a demure yet dramatic lace jacket. The gown itself is smooth and structured, its sleek sweetheart bodice styled with detachable parts so that it can be worn with halter straps, spaghetti straps, or strapless. At the waist, an attached bow belt joins the bodice to a boldly box-pleated skirt whose full skirt conceals side pockets. Over this timeless ballgown-style wedding dress, the optional lace jacket adds a close-fitting bodice overlay of illusion net and embroidered floral lace, romantically scalloped at the high neckline and three-quarter sleeves. The jacket adds wearability, too; it's a pretty element for the rehearsal that keeps the whole look for the main event, and it can be layered over a colorful dress for other celebrations you'll attend as a married couple. Both elements of the two-piece wedding gown set close up the back with covered buttons that run in an unbroken line from the lacy nape to the hem of the satin chapel train. Wear David Tutera Ellie for a classic, comely look at the ceremony, then remove the jacket for a more festive look while you celebrate at your reception – or wear both pieces of the two-piece dress set throughout the wedding for a traditional take on contemporary tailoring that will make your look elegantly memorable.
These elements of design give David Tutera Ellie its numerous options and unchanging grace:
