A ballgown made up of a number of layers, nude-colored chiffon, white chiffon with small diamonds that flicker in the light, a few more layers topped off by chiffon with 3D (handmade) florals that give this dress life. All these layers create an amazing visual effect and texture.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER:
Since founding her namesake brand in 2004, Berta Balilti has been known among extravagant, glamorous brides simply as “Berta.” Both feminine and powerful, Berta dresses belong on a confident bride that envisions a wedding defined by style. We suggest pairing a Berta dress with a black-tie affair, lavish ten-tier cake, and long-stemmed roses … but a true Berta bride won’t listen to us. She forges her own path down the aisle.

WHY SHE LOVED IT: I loved the floral detail and the different coloring based on lighting that gave it a white, gray, champagne flair.
HOW DID SHE FEEL: I felt like a model. This dress made me feel like a princess with beautiful detailing. I couldn't stop thinking about the dress after I purchased a different wedding dress and had to wear this one instead. It truly made me feel special on my wedding day.
DEAR FUTURE BRIDE: I hope you feel as beautiful in this dress as I did!
