Martin Thornburg for Mon Cheri Bridal Gown Rhyah / 116209:
Clouds of rose- and paisley-patterned lace clothe a traditional bride in just a hint of sentimental vintage romance, but the aesthetic of David Tutera for Mon Cheri Rhyah is both chic and timeless. This two-piece wedding dress set achieves the unusual while still conveying a dignified heritage with its smart fit and heirloom qualities. A jewel neckline on the sleeveless top fits closely for a demure effect, echoing the simplicity of the tank styling, but at the waistline, the lace appliqués end in a scalloped border. The same scallops border the hem of the A-line skirt, a graceful floor-length garment with deep back gathers that fall at a natural angle of repose into a formal chapel train. David Tutera for Mon Cheri Rhyah is easier to dress in than a standard one-piece gown, making it a superb reception dress or an ideal choice for venues where you won't have much time for getting ready; a hidden zipper at the back of the top provides an instant change, but is concealed beneath a row of covered buttons that reinforce the two-piece wedding gown's tailored perfection. This wonderful mix of classic softness with unexpected tailoring creates a winsome presence worthy of a thoughtfully adorned bride.
