This is a classic Pronovias (style is donaire) and is somewhat of a blend between a classic ballgown and an A-line/slight mermaid style dress (i.e. dropped waist). The top portion of the dress is a beautiful blend of chiffon, beading & lace. The back is actually my favorite part of this dress: small dainty buttons down the entire back, ending below the waist/mid-butt area (depending on your height, etc). It is what is called a “dropped waist,” so it accentuates the figure much more than the classic ballgown, but not so much to where it is a mermaid style dress. The bottom of the dress (as you can see from the pics) has cascading, soft ruffles that still allow for a sliming shape. It has a gorgeous train (more ruffles!) and bustles into a ballgown-style dress.
The dress also has a built in bra (clasps in the back of the dress), so that you don’t have to worry about pulling up a strapless dress at all (it was SO nice to not have to do that one time during my entire wedding day).
I had a garden – style wedding outdoors in August and was surprisingly cool temperature-wise, even with all of the ruffles, etc.
I received so many compliments on this dress; it truly is a gown you will only wear on your wedding day and photographs beautifully (our photographer said it’s his favorite he’s seen in years). I’m sad to part with it, but we are saving for some other goals in our marriage now and I also wouldn’t mind sharing this fantastic piece with another bride who will love it as much as I did.
Please let me know if you would like some detailed pictures of the dress or have any more questions. I’d be happy to answer them!
