Every bride wants to feel beautiful on her wedding day — and that usually means feeling a little sexy, too! But there’s a fine line between a lot of allure and a little bit lewd. Gowns in the Morilee collection by Madeline Gardner showcase the right way to bare some skin on your wedding day.
Showing some skin as you walk away is a classic way to achieve subtle sexiness. Gowns with a low, open back have been on trend for a number of years. Some open-backed gowns are trimmed with shimmering beads and lace, making for a truly dazzling exit.
A strapless gown is made to show off the graceful slope of bare shoulders and arms. A simple straight-across cut feels modern and streamlined, while a sweetheart’s center dip feels feminine and sophisticated. Strapless gowns are also the most versatile; a lace top piece or cozy shrug slips easily over a bare-shouldered bodice.
If you’ve got it, flaunt it! A deep V can be a fabulous way to show off your gorgeous curves — if done properly. The perfect fit is key. Opt for a super-low neckline or back, not both. When trying on low-cut gowns, take a step back and ask yourself what your guests will notice first: your beautiful face or the girls? if you make elegance your goal, a deep V can be a show stopper instead of a peep show.
Beading and appliqué will always bring drama and glamour to a wedding gown. Nowadays, they’re bringing a little sexiness, too! Sparkling embellishments seem to float upon illusion netting and sheer bodices for a barely-there, fantasy feeling.
Sheer panels or smartly-cropped separates are a stylish way to show a peekaboo of skin and the right amount of midriff. A corseted bodice rendered in tasteful, un-lined lace echoes boudoir fashions. A cropped top with a hint of bare skin gives off a more laid-back vibe and easy-breezy allure.
