PENELOPE Style D8301
Illusion Back and Side Bodice Lace Mermaid Wedding Dress
Scoop Neckline Mermaid Wedding Gown with Semi-Cathedral Train
Figure-flaunting in a mermaid silhouette, Val Stefani Penelope gown offers romance, elegance, and pure sophistication. The Penelope gown feels and fits like a dream in a combination of tulle, sparkle tulle, and rose net fabrics. This mermaid gown features an unlined tulle bodice with illusion insets at the sides, a soft scoop neckline, a deep V-back with illusion, and beaded spaghetti straps. It’s detailed with a natural waist that gives way to a sweeping mermaid skirt with a semi-cathedral train, perfect for the bride-to-be looking to make a dramatic, memorable walk down the aisle. The fabric combination and cut of this gown are undeniably beautiful, but it’s the addition of embroidered lace appliques with sequins and glass beading that make it truly spectacular. Appliques cover the entire bodice and trickle down past the waistline, at which point they scatter around the hips and throughout the body of the skirt. Appliques also climb upwards from the edge of the scalloped hem, creating a beautiful balance of sparkle and texture from top to bottom. Penelope is available in Ivory/Taupe/Rose color combination that provides a subtle hint of contrast as well as in all Ivory and all White.
Lined in stretch satin, Penelope is a stunning choice for the modern bride that wants to highlight her curves in a tasteful, romantic, and somewhat traditional way. With the contrast of the scoop neckline, open back, and unlined bodice it’s much-loved by brides that want to show a hint of skin while still maintaining an elegant, classic look. In back, it’s finished with a zipper closure and a row of covered buttons, creating a finish that’s equally as gorgeous from the back as it is from the front. The shaped lace train is decorated with lace appliques to complete this show stopping style. Schedule a fitting to try on the Penelope gown at an authorized Val Stefani retailer near you.
