The off-the-shoulder look pairs effortlessly with lace, and the Alfred Angelo Bridal Gown 973 is a perfect example of how you can cover your arms without being too covered up. Crafted from delicate lace, detailed with beautifully scalloped edges, and accented with crystal beading that gives it a subtle sparkle and shine, this style is ideal for the bride who wants a traditional look but also wants to show some skin. This A-line lace silhouette lets you add a bold statement necklace, wear your hair in a chic up-do, sweep your hair to one side, or even accessorize with chandelier earrings that graze the shoulders. The shoulder-baring neckline makes it appropriate for any elegant indoor affair or destination wedding on the beach.

There’s something quite magical about the Allure Bridal Gown 9211.

It’s the type of dress you can picture Grace Kelly wearing, the kind that never goes out of style, the kind that’s memorable for its graceful design elements but not designed to overwhelm the woman wearing it. The off-the-shoulder neckline and tiny cap sleeves give it a dreamy, ethereal effect, while the beaded waist treatment accentuates the narrow, natural waist.

The A-line silhouette forms a sweeping train, making this style perfect for any garden wedding, rustic affair, or sunlit beach.
