Dress: Maelie by Willowby by Watters

We give an “A” grade to this gorgeous A-line gown with a literal twist! It is another A1 choice for a Summer or hot weather ceremony. Airy and yet subtly ornate, Maelie by Willowby by Watters is incredibly unique and she is the “something different” you seek.

As mentioned above, she begins with the classic A-line silhouette. From there, she blossoms into a wonderment of understated but yet eye-catching details.

Her deep “V” neckline allows for a glimpse of skin while her not-too-thin, not-too-wide straps show off your beautiful neck and arms. Delicate Sketchbook Floral Beaded Embroidery adorns her bodice with shimmering beads, sequins and intricate flowers. But the pièce de résistance is the crisscrossed soft netting which swirls around your midriff. Yes, there is the “twist” we spoke of.

This unique style element underlines the bodice in a way that is truly different from the norm. From the back you can see how it comes together brilliantly in an almost bow-like way. She has a partially open backline which is accented beautifully by another crisscross of elegant oh-so-narrow straps. Breathtaking!

Her full skirt is constructed from Illusion Tulle and more intricate flowers have been skillfully added just below the waistline. Net godets add volume and movement and hidden beneath all of that luscious fabric is a tasteful yet tantalizing slit. An optional sweetheart lined bodice is available if you are going for a genuinely modest look.

If ever there was a dress that could walk the aisle without accessories, this surely might be the one. She is the complete picture of style and sophistication with or without them. Maelie by Willowby by Watters is truly grand design in a tastefully unencumbered package. No one will ever forget the bride in this dress.
