“I use different kinds of romantic lace, 3D flowers making the gown look soft and dainty, and of course, bead work to make each dress stand out and sparkly,” said Haydee, explaining the details that went into this capsule. 

Haydee was inspired by “us girls being very thrilled and excited to be stuck inside this fairytale bubble when we’re in love,” which ultimately made her dream of fairytale gowns. Listed below are these dreams-turned-realities, fit for women who want to live in the moment of being in love:

All the classics with a twist

From traditional ball gowns to minimalist slip dresses, there’s always a classic bridal fit that never goes out of style with its timelessness. If you’re looking for a true classic serpentine wedding dress, Fleur is just for you. This is an ivory gown in full lace appliqué with a floral pattern and fully embellished with beads and sequins. It can be also customized with off-shoulder sleeves, long-sleeve mesh, or a strap.

There’s also a way to make you appear taller and more slender. Ideal for petite and mid-sized brides, Vignes’ lines and vine pattern is the main focal point of this fit, which makes the bride’s figure appear longer. This serpentine gown is fully embellished with ceramic glass beads, nano pearls, and micro-Swarovski crystals with scattered 3D floral appliqué. 

For a dreamy, fully beaded ball gown, you can try Enchantée, which is adorned with ceramic glass beads, pearls, mirrored sequins, and Swarovski crystals. This gown will stand out from the crowd as it sparkles with every move and turn you make. 

Can’t get enough of sparkles? The base of the Douce dress is champagne with ivory caviar lace. It is fully beaded with glitter base, cut beads, and sequins with detachable off-shoulder sleeves, a great bridal style twist to your ceremony.
