This week we have an amazing dress from Martina Liana in our 'Yes to the Dress' feature. We first got this wedding dress in for a Martina Liana trunk show late last summer and we instantly fell in love with it and so did our brides. This dress is so simple and understated yet has over 10,000 sparkling glass beads and Swarovski crystals.
The neckline and back on this gown is delicately beaded with the fine glass beads and crystals. It also features an illusion neckline that offers support but gives the look of a modern sweetheart.
The back of this Martina Liana wedding dress zips up to the waist with crepe-covered buttons closing over to conceal the zip and add a feature to the illusion backline. Those that love buttons will love them on this gown.
The sheath fabric of this dress ensures the perfect fit, it hugs the figure in all the right places yet is heavy and rich enough to feel supported and luxurious. It features a slim chapel length train which gracefully sweeps the floor due to the weight of the crepe. It also has buttons right to the very tip of the train.
Styling 734 by Martina Liana.
We are quite matchy-matchy when it comes to bridesmaids so we love when we find a style that compliments a wedding dress real well. We love this bridesmaids dress (2964) from the Dessy Group which has a similar illusion neckline and plain crepe fabric.
Overall this dress is quite modern with understated elegance and we'd base much of the wedding styling on this concept. A sharp navy suit for the groom would work well with this dress to keep the look modern and fresh. Navy and Lavender are lovely together so this colour combination could be then used to theme the rest of the rest of the wedding elements.
