My wedding gown pick for this week is from Justin Alexander, a bridal designer who is both incredibly popular and affordable.

Gown 8640 is a strapless ball gown with a  sweetheart neckline. The asymmetrical bodice is a fitted and pleated to create an incredibly slimming, flattering silhouette. A   4-inch sparkling beaded belt adds accent at the natural waist.

Obviously, the real star of this show is the unique skirt! The mille-feuille organza full skirt is created with lots of layers of organza. The edges of each layer are cut in a slightly wavy pattern to create fullness, movement, and interest. The term “mille-feuille” is French for “a thousand leaves or layers,” and the fullness created by these light layers are a dramatic masterpiece!

When commenting about this dress, the designer also admitted that the shape of lasagna noodles were actually an inspiration when creating the shaped edges of the skirt’s layers.

This gown also features buttons over the back zipper and a chapel length train.

This fabulous gown is available in both ivory and white.
