From afar, style WG3861 may look like your average, strapless ball gown, but up close is where the modern-magic happens. The bodice is semi-sheer and lace appliques trail down the airy skirt. Plus, the most exciting cutting-edge detail you can’t see? Pockets.

Style WG3880 is for the traditional bride with a fashion-forward streak! The classic trumpet silhouette is refreshed with a cuffed off-the-shoulder neckline and buttons that trail allll the way down the back. How chic!

This dress has all the makings of a traditional wedding dress—from the full bell shape to the lustrous satin fabric to the Ivory hue. What makes V3848 worthy of the modern label? That plunging neckline! Va-voom!
Lace is the quintessential wedding dress fabric, because of its delicate and romantic feel. Four types of lace appliques are used to create the linear motif seen on style MS251173, making this classic fabric feel new.

How about a pop of color?! Style CWG767 has everything we love about a traditional wedding gown, from the A-line silhouette to the chapel train, but the blush hue is a trend we hope never goes away.
