Angelina Faccenda Bridesmaid Dresses by Mori Lee
Brides often face a challenge finding a bridesmaid dress that the whole party of bridesmaids want to wear, as tastes can differ dramatically. It is a complete delight to discover that the Angelina Faccenda bridesmaids collection for Morliee offers a wealth of fresh and contemporary dresses that bridesmaids really love to wear. This collection of full-length and cocktail-length couture A-line dresses features impeccably designed styles that have universal appeal. Mori Lee has been at the forefront of bridal fashion for over sixty years, consistently creating dresses with a timeless image. This collection carries the hallmark look of acclaimed designer Madeline Gardner who oversees the design creation with her expert eye and is always tuned in to the latest trends. Madame Bridal is an authorized retailer of this gorgeous collection and knows that the bride and her bridesmaids will be very happy with their decision to opt for this beautiful line. The collection is a popular choice for formal and informal weddings.
One of the most appealing features of this line is the mirror duplication of the same gown with both floor-length and above the knee hemlines. This enables bridesmaids to select the same dress yet suit their individual preferences for length. The same design can look more elegant when long, in contrast to the breezier image of a shorter version of the same gown. Different lengths may appeal to bridesmaids of different ages, with younger maids opting for a shorter length. In addition to the two standard lengths there are both long and short dresses with high-low hemlines, a popular alternative that adds a frisson of charm.
Each Angela Faccenda dress is available in a full range of sizes running from 2-28. The consistent silhouette is the A-line, so flattering to a whole range of sizes and figures. These dresses are created in chiffon, luxe chiffon and mesh, soft flowing fabrics that move effortlessly and allow for fabulously feminine drapery. The color palette available suits every season, coloring and possible color scheme of the wedding.
Fine drapery is the key quality that stands out as one browses this collection. The fine attention to even the smallest detail stands out, whether it is a finely ruched bodice or an asymmetrically draped skirt. The overall theme of the collection is one of stylishly simple sophistication, forgoing the overdone frippery once so associated with bridesmaid fashion. They are the type of dress that young women will choose to wear for other occasions, thus having the advantage of bridesmaids wishing to wear them beyond the ceremony.
Full-length gowns have an elegant appeal that makes them suitable for formal and romantic evenings, while the shorter versions are ideal for a host of informal occasions. Mori Lee's Angelina Faccenda is affordable and their value is even more apparent if the dress can be enjoyed on other occasions. The lightweight fabrics used mean the bridesmaids can opt for these dresses for destination weddings and wear them again throughout the vacation. Lightweight fabrics are fantastic for hot summer ceremonies and are easily packed. They are equally ideal for outdoor garden ceremonies, but dressy enough for more formal wedding settings.
There is a wealth of styles to choose from within the collection but the consistent feature is totally feminine and romantic lines. The dresses showcase modern gaiety as the bridesmaids bask in the pleasure of the joyous occasion. The shorter dresses have a flirty and fun aspect that is breezy and carefree, promising a light hearted adventure on the dance floor. Overall the collection is excellent at capturing the energetic spirit of the wedding.
Angelina Faccenda offers distinctive styles to flatter every figure and accentuate every attribute. Bodice styles vary from dress to dress, including strapless sweethearts, halter bodices with surplice V-necklines and sweetheart bodices with sheer scoop necklines. Sheer necklines in the collection are carefully color matched to form a natural extension to the bodice. There are vertically ruched bodices with ruffled halter necklines and bodices with crossover halter straps. There are V-notched straight strapless necklines and one-shoulder bodices with asymmetrical necklines. Stand out features include carefully overlaid ruched crossover panels and one-shoulder bodices with an additional off-the-shoulder straps making a creative style statement. There are strapless sweethearts with removable cap sleeve coverlets tying at the nape of the neck to create a cutout back. There are halter bodices featuring keyhole backs and off-the-shoulder necklines with floral appliques adorning the straps. There are sleeveless bodices with cut-in shoulders and bodices with delicately beaded shoulder straps. Spaghetti straps and cap sleeves lead into illusion V-cut backs and keyhole racer backs. Deep cowl backs exude femininity and semi-open backs add the natural conclusion to strapless dresses.
Waistlines are accentuated with inset bands, satin waistbands, ruched bands and removable tie sashes. A cinched in waist provides the natural focal point for the skirt to flow from, often displaying soft gathers or light layers. The Angelina Faccenda bridesmaid dresses include faux wrapped skirts with asymmetrically cut overlay flounces.
Embellishments are discreet and refined. Patterned sequins are used to adorn elegant mesh dresses, adding a delightful shimmer to both daytime and evening weddings. Other occasional adornments include beading and embroidery, covered buttons and delicate ruffles. Beading is never overdone, used to perhaps accent a shoulder strap or an illusion neckline. Ruffles adorn straps and halters, with an occasional flourish on a side draped skirt. The simplicity of the adornments accentuates the natural beauty of these gowns, allowing the woman who wears them to showcase her own loveliness without being smothered with too much detail. Many are completely unadorned, relying on excellently tailored details to convey their charm. Unadorned ensembles lend themselves well to be matched with jewelry and accessories that can be changed for each occasion. A change of hairstyle or accessories, the addition of a shawl or jacket, easily creates a whole new look.
The choice of captivating colors will suit every bride's color scheme as it runs from the softest pastels, to bright hues, through to dark shades. If the bride isnít wearing white her bridesmaids can opt for white dresses, and black bridesmaid dresses make a powerful fashion statement especially for city chic weddings. Dark colors lend themselves well to fall and winter weddings and the more muted colors on offer in the collection include navy, charcoal, latte and espresso, moving into the bolder hues of claret, eggplant and wine. Bright summer colors are peacock and coral, while softer shades that are popular for springtime weddings include blush, champagne, cactus, ivory, mint, violet, taupe and silver.
There is no longer any hard and fast rule that each bridesmaid must wear the same color and it is particularly pleasing to see a line up of bridesmaids in varying yet complementary shades of one color. Another option is to color match the bridesmaids, but let them each choose a dress in a different length or in a similar style, but with a different neckline. One bridesmaid may be happy to flaunt a strapless look while another may be self conscious of a larger bust and prefer to go for a one-shoulder dress with an asymmetrical neckline.
This striking collection from Mori Lee's Angelina Faccenda stands out for its verve and freshness, conveying contemporary and youthful vibrancy. Each quality dress is spellbinding in its simple sophistication and the impression it conveys of joy and gaiety. Bridesmaids that opt for these styles really do revel in the enjoyment of the day and their smiling faces will be captured for eternity in the wedding photographs. The dresses are gorgeous enough to showcase the individual style and beauty of each bridesmaid, while not taking all the attention from the bride. Any bride would be delighted to include in her special day her very best friends dressed up in the lovely dresses in this collection, knowing they can enjoy them again after her big day.
