Introducing the Abella Gown Collection from Allure Bridals
The new collection of gowns from Abella are unlike anything we’ve seen before. Come take a look!
After over a year of staying home, many brides are eager to step out and make a splash. If you want a showstopper of showstoppers, then the Abella collection from Allure Bridals is one you can’t miss.
What sets these gowns apart is that many of them incorporate glitter and sparkle in a way we’ve never seen done before. They shimmer. They shine. They’re glamorous but in a way you can’t put your finger on. They have a je ne sais quoi that you have to see in person to appreciate.
These dresses are fresh in, but the reception we’ve gotten from the brides who’ve had a chance to try them on is as enthusiastic as our own. Come in and see for yourself!
Luna Leigh: A deceptively simple ballgown in glitter lace.
There’s so much to love about Luna Leigh, but we’ll start with the square neckline. We love how clean this is, and it is the perfect silhouette to match the neatly fitted bodice and tailored waistband. The skirt doesn’t have a lot of gathers or pleats at the waist, but flares dramatically into a voluminous skirt. Everything is covered in a glitter lace pattern of delicate vines. If you’re planning your wedding for cooler months, the bodice on this gown would pair perfectly with a fitted jacket.
Astrid Ann: Multidimensional lace with a deep V neckline and cap sleeves.
If you’re looking for a gown that makes more of a statement, Astrid Ann is a breath-taking combination of lace and tulle just the right amount of shimmer when it catches the light. The neckline flows smoothly from a deep V in the front to a low scoop in the back. The cap sleeves balance out the bodice and give the gown a traditional look that would be perfect for a large church, although the flower appliques make us long to see it in a garden wedding.
Mikaela: A bombshell silhouette with diamond sparkle tulle.
Inspired by vintage French styles, Mikaela has so many amazing details to recommend it. The most eye-catching, after the hourglass silhouette, is the deep, plunging sweetheart neckline that finishes with a flirty bow at the waist. One of our favorite details, however is that the illusion neckline draws the shimmer from the fabric all the way up to the collarbone, and then sets off by a row of fabric-covered buttons in the back.
Sigrid: A Bardot neckline with lace appliques.
Perhaps the most romantic gown of the collection, Sigrid is a true princess gown. The full-length lace sleeves combine with an off-the-shoulder neckline that dips into a sweetheart in the front and a wide V in the back. Boning in the bodice gives this dress a fitted look at the top, while the pleats at the waistline give the skirt instant volume. Lace appliques bring old world elegance to this gown which finishes off in a long train. We see this as a perfect choice for brides planning a wedding in the fall or the early spring.
Gita Marie: A flowing gown with off-the-shoulder sleeves.
Gita Marie is a dream. It’s rare to find a dress with so many layers of fabric that still manages to look and feel weightless. The corset boning in the bodice, which is covered by transparent pleats of sparkle tulle, adds structure to an otherwise flowing silhouette. The draped, off-the-shoulder sleeves add the final romantic touch to this fairytale dress. The lightness of this dress makes it a good choice for warm weather, although we love imagining it at a beach wedding, where the wind off the water can let the layers truly billow.
Nadine: A dazzling mermaid silhouette with a plunging neckline.
Does your heart skip a beat when you see bling on a wedding gown? Then Nadine may be the dress you can’t miss. The sequins and sparkle on this gown are far from subtle, just like the plunging neckline, which is matched by a deep V in the back and cutouts in the sides. And for brides who want a form-fitting top but don’t want to give up a dramatic skirt, this mermaid silhouette is a dream come true.
Monia: A beaded sheath with a detachable overskirt.
Have we mentioned before how much we adore detachable overskirts? There’s nothing more fun than a two-in-one dress, especially when both versions are showstoppers on their own. As a sheath dress, Monia stands out for the delicate beading running the full length of the gown, as well as the sheer paneling in the bodice. Paired with the overskirt, the silhouette becomes full and flowing for a ballgown look. We like the idea of making a dramatic entrance in the overskirt for the ceremony before removing layers once it becomes time to dance.
