While Vera Wang & Monique Lhuillier reign supreme in the wedding gown world, I’ve gotta say- Romona Keveza never fails to dazzle me. Take this Fall 2013 Mermaid dress, for example. I’m not sure I love it on this model (or perhaps it’s the angle?), but if you break it down, I can’t get this dress out of my head. Love the sheer overlay around the arms and across the bust. Love the diagonal angles that flatter the figure. Love the dramatic tuft of skirt at the bottom. Love the glorious details on the skirt. I’ve had this image on my desktop for a while and every time I glance upon it, I gasp a little.
If you adore the silhouette but aren’t too attached to the details, then you might enjoy this Oleg Cassini dress at David’s Bridal. Surely you would save yourself thousands of dollars with this less expensive rendition of the tool, mermaid gown!
