One of the masters of contemporary bridal wear, Elie Saab (click HERE for the entire collections) is a pioneer in mixing intricate beading and luxurious laces to silk and tulle, creating goddess-like styles, worthy of Veronica Lake.
Definitely more suitable for evening parties, this style fits perfectly with either large or smaller, more intimate events and are also a comfortable option for the bride that plans to dance the night away, once the bias cut that enables that shape requires less seaming and corseting to hug the figure in a precise and sensuous way.
Leave it to the beading and embroidery treatments, to give your dress a more festive and glamourous feel or keep it clean and simple for more of a petit comitée type of celebration.
Below, a few breathtaking ideas:
