Modern Mermaid-Style Wedding Gown

Bride Beth was inspired by the classic silhouettes worn by Rosemary Clooney in White Christmas.

The Bride

Bride Beth wanted a dress inspired by Old Hollywood starlets with a modern, colorful twist. Working from a classic silhouette inspired by Rosemary Clooney in White Christmas, the bride’s vision came to life.

The Gown

The dramatic gown features a fitted bodice of fuchsia four-play silk crepe and a contrasting ivory satin faced silk organza skirt. The skirt is embellished with tiers of flowing fabric. The Barbie doll look is completed with a tulle underskirt and a sheer kick pleat in the back of the dress.

Beth was looking for a vintage-inspired dress that still encapsulated her modern style.
The color-block gown features a bright pink bodice and ivory skirt with a wide, black belt.
When the bride began to look for wedding gowns, she struggled to find any looks that didn't feature a strapless bodice.
The gown's skirt features an asymmetrical line of fabric pieces that were hand-sewn to the gown to create a waterfall effect.

The moment I met Janice, I knew I had found the one—this woman knows her stuff! I felt so beautiful on my wedding day. I had a dress that was absolutely “me” with a unique twist that fit and flattered my body—who could ask for anything more?
