Dress Of The Week: 8558

Style 8558 is our lovely Dress Of The Week! This Venice lace mermaid gown with a sweetheart neckline is striking. The semi cathedral length train and beaded ribbon belt add the wow factor to this elegant wedding dress.

Why I love it: This is what a vintage inspired wedding dress should look like! I love everything about it from the delicate lace to the curve embracing mermaid shape to the gorgeous beaded ribbon belt.

Perfect for: As much as this dress is stunning, it is also versatile. It's perfect for an old Hollywood or a country chic wedding.

Tony Mentel, the designer of this elegant lace dress, had this to say about  8558, “This dress is all about the beautiful vintage Venice lace, When I first found this lace I was immediately inspired to create a shape which would showcase the beauty and texture of the fabric. The Dress has a 1950\'s feel with a nod to Edwardian elegance. I hand beaded the belt with a mixture of crystals and vintage looking petals and beads to give an antique feel, topped of with a vintage brooch, the Oyster coloured lining and belt ribbon also create depth to the dress and also finish of the vintage feel.”
