Morilee by Madeline Gardner Spring 2017 Wedding Dress Collection
With the slogan "turning dreams to dresses" and the hashtag #dresscometrue, Morilee's mission is clear, and it hits its goal time and time again. Bridal (and evening, and prom, and quinceañera) designer Madeline Gardner has been in the business for over 25 years, and her dresses have been granting brides their wishes from the start. Morilee's multiple collections cater to a variety of weddings and styles, from classic, to trendy, to free-spirited, to couture. Gardner also designs gorgeous plus-sized wedding dresses, because every woman deserves to feel beautiful on her big day. Elegant, contemporary, or whimsy, these dresses live to please, and the work that goes into each and every piece is a telltale sign of their quality (Gardner takes interior construction seriously, meaning fits are seamless and comfortable). Intricate, elaborate beading is a hallmark of Morilee's looks, as are beautiful, lavish fabrics that brides love to wear. On this year's New York Bridal Fashion Week runway, we saw tons of figure-hugging, strapless gowns, plus some seriously stunning open-back action. There were princess fits and mermaid silhouettes, and details ranged from floral appliqués to ruffled skirts. Ahead, every look from Morilee's Spring 2017 wedding dress collection.
