Allure Bridals and The Modern Day Bride

ALLURE COUTURE BRIDAL C542

Who’s is this and what makes her wedding dress different?

Brides have always tried to stand out and be uniquely themselves… but what type of Allure Bridals wedding dress is the Modern Day Bride wearing? Over the past two years, bridal gown designers have done a complete overhaul of the traditional bridal dress look. The biggest change that drove the distinction between the gowns of the past and the Modern Day Bride is in the fit of the bridal dress. 

The fabrics under Allure Bridals’ gowns have changed from single lined charmeuse satin to what we have dubbed “yoga pant material.” Brides no longer have to compromise comfort for beauty in their wedding dress with the new stretch jersey lining and lightweight lycra under the elegantly formal lace and beading on their bridal gowns.

Allure Bridals has mastered the craft of the fit of a wedding dress with their team of expert designers. The new fabrics have introduced brides to not only comfort but a tasteful way to show curves and feel feminine in a wedding gown. The lightweight sheer layer of fabric Allure Bridal’s uses lays smooth against the body and allows for less lining giving a shapely, figure-emphasizing, flattering wedding dress. 

The best part about this new fabric approach from Allure Bridals is that regardless of your style, you will be effortlessly YOU in your wedding dress. When you are wearing a light layer of fabric against your skin, your bridal alterations cost will be significantly reduced. 

The Prevue Bride’s have tested the fabrics from Allure Bridals and it is a deal breaker for any styles from the past. Our brides confidently say Yes! to their dream dress by Allure Bridals based on not only how gorgeous they look in the gown but also because they feel amazing in their wedding dress.

Style AND Comfort

There are so many styles at your fingertips but where to start? Julietta by Mori Lee is one of our favorite wedding dress lines for our fabulous plus size brides.

All of your inspo styles that seem out of reach are now available for the trendy plus size bride. The Julietta line has surprised us all with the new addition of a full coverage bra built into the structure of each gown, no matter what style you are going for. The soft edge boning helps support the bust, while giving your waist that snatched look and a comfortable feel. The boho bridal trend for casual destination ceremonies, rustic weddings, and romantic outdoor venues has brides swooning over soft net skirts and sheer lace tops. For those women needing structure and support, this style would have been an immediate “next” in the fitting rooms a couple years ago. Now, thanks to Madeline Gardner, the narrow lace straps on a sheer bodice and whimsical tulle skirt are “THE ONE” as your mom, grandma, and bride tribe hold back tears when you walk out of the dressing room.

The off the shoulder princess look or strapless Cinderella ball gown can now have you feeling like a queen without worrying about the dress moving out of place. The structure of the bodice has been mastered, the quality is second to none, and the styles will have your friends wishing they could re-create their own magical day. Madeline Gardner travels all over the world hand selecting the lace patterns, luxurious fabrics, and delicate bead patterns for each gown. Each Julietta plus size bridal gown is sketched by hand and created with love.

Another style hitting the runway this upcoming season is a sheath gown in modern crepe fabric or European stitch embroidery. Typically, the immediate thought of tight in the hips, uncomfortable fabric, and lack of ability to sit would steer a bride into another style. As of last year, the days of the polyester satin lining are long gone. YAY! Stretchy light-weight jersey has replaced the lining so the fit is perfect from the beginning. Alterations have become much less of a cost issue and the ability to dance the night away has bride’s saying Yes! and celebrating with friends and family at Prevue. Give yourself the bridal experience you deserve and feel confident and glamorous in your Julietta plus size bridal gown.

Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

The first question you will hear when talking about your wedding gown is, “What style are you looking for?” BE DARING. The best answer is that you are open to styles. Every bride has imagined their dream wedding, including the style of the gown but most brides go a completely different direction during the appointment. So many reasons we narrow down the search before trying on is the common misleading mindset, “that wouldn’t be good for my body type”…. Stop right there. Give each style a chance because you never know! There are amazing ball gowns, mermaids, extended trains, and sheath crepe dresses that you might miss out on. Do yourself a favor and allow your consultant to help you branch out of the box. We are here to help you look and feel your best for your big day.

Off Shoulder

The Top Wedding Dress Trends this Fall

Thanks to the lasting influence of Meghan Markle’s gorgeous wedding gown, off-the-shoulder necklines are here to stay! And that’s a good thing, especially with its versatility and endless mix and match potential for designers. With just the right amount of coverage on the neckline, off-shoulder styles bring a touch of elegance to popular wedding silhouettes such as mermaid, trumpet, sheath, and ball gown. With this elegant and understated design, you can choose a sleek and minimalist gown like a structured sheath free of embellishments. Or you can go all the way, Hollywood style, including glittery beading on the bodice and a coordinating train.

Long Sleeve

The Top Wedding Dress Trends this Fall

Another look that’s gracing the bridal runways, long sleeves are perfect for adding drama to simple dresses. Taking a cue from Grace Kelly and Kate Middleton, it’s a timeless style fit for a queen! For the winter bride, long sleeves in sheer floral lace provide extra warmth and coverage while also highlighting delicate and feminine arms. But if you’re not looking for a modest princess-cut gown, designers are committed to bringing modern touches to traditional long sleeves. If you want a whimsical boho look, bell sleeves are perfect for giving you a unique wedding style that sets you apart. Sleeves are timeless and romantic on any style, regardless of your wedding theme or gown shape.

Extravagant Custom Veils

From celebrity weddings to bridal fashion shows, veils are getting the royal treatment with intricate details that are custom designed to match the gown. Another chance for brides to go all out on their wedding day, these elaborate veils are designed to enhance your bridal gown even more. For the modern bride, a customized veil gives this classic accessory a couture twist, which adds another layer of show stopping drama and romance. According to Libby MacCarthy, fashion editor at The Knot, “A veil is the finishing touch to any bridal look, and it’s the perfect opportunity to make a style statement all your own.” For the bride who wants to get noticed, get ready to be the center of attention with a statement-making cathedral-length veil adorned with dazzling embellishments or floral lace appliqués that coordinate with your dress.

 

With an eclectic mash-up of classic designs and modern, high fashion accents, bridal gown designers are creating collections that appeal to all types of brides this season. Prevue is committed to having the newest trends so you can find your dream dress as soon as you say Yes! to your forever.
