Marchesa fall 2017 bridal collection was inspired by Eros the Greek god of love. Anticipation was in the air last week as throngs of editors, photographers, and buyers patiently waited for the doors to the viewing to open. To pacify the crowds, waiters work the room handing out glasses of champagne and water. As the sunset on a Fall evening on the Westside of New York City the door to the gallery opened. Inside ten models lined up on raised platforms to present the latest collections like Greek status.

This ivory fit and flare gown with floral embroidered bodice and keyhole back is balanced out by the sleek silk faille skirt. The back bustle drape ruffles offer an interesting detail for the bride who wants the wow factor on her wedding day. I would definitely recommend this gown for a country club, mansion or formal church setting.
A garden setting would be ideal for this ivory and nude v neck gown with detachable cape detail. The plunging neckline elevates the sexy factor to level 8. I wouldn’t recommend this gown for style for a busty bride but if you’re a fashionista at heart, then this gown should definitely be on your list of gowns to be tried on.
