The Cianna gown by L'Amour

The Cianna gown has a combination of stretch crepe and beaded lace applique that sparkles brilliantly in the light. The gorgeous side panels of lace contour the body very beatifully to really show off your shape at every angle!

The Emilia gown by Stella York

A soft and romantic look with lace, tulle, and horsehair ruffled skirt. The structured bodice and gorgeous back detail make this gown perfect to show off your waist!

The Evelyn gown by Stella York

Cutouts along the waist of this gown really exaggerate and define an hourglass figure! From the plunging neckline, lacy crosshatching side cutouts, and beaded criscross straps in the back, there is truly something to drool over at every angle of this gown. Oh, and don't forget the gorgous lace train!

The Connie gown by Rebecca Ingram

A classic gown with bohemian vibes! The Connie gown has a soft English net slim aline skirt with a bold crochet lace bodice and multi keyhole back. No doubt that these bold, yet subtle details will stand out in pictures!

The Echo gown by Stella York

With plunges in the neckline, sides, and back, you're guaranteed to turn heads! My favorite feature of this gown is the misture of fabrics: a mikado bodice that shines and draws the eye upward and a tulle ballgown skirt that cascades elegantly to the floor. This gown is all about simple drama!

The Tuscany Lynette gown by Maggie Sottero

Allover lace in a lightweight fitted sheath gown highlights all the best features of the body! The plunging neckline will create length and the train flows out from an arched seam in the back to perfectly frame your booty! What makes this gown unique is the lack of flare in the skirt from the front is flattering and slimming on every body type!

The Alistaire gown by Maggie Sottero

This is a true mermaid gown with a structured lace bodice. If you're nervous about a plunging neckline, but love what look like, this is the perfect gown for you because the plunge is visible, yet narrow! There is drama all over this gown from the beaded spaghetti straps to the long tulle and lace train!

The Ember gown by Stella York

This gown has everything! Long lace sleeves, open keyhole back that also accentuates your waist, and sheer lace side cutouts to exaggerate your figure!

The Thatcher gown by Sottero & Midgley

A full skirt, cinched waist, delicate straps, made from an OH SO sparkly patterened fabric! Your pictures are sure to look stunning with the Thatcher gown!
