We are so excited that Celia Grace has asked The Overwhelmed Bride and our brides to name one of their new gowns! I don't know about you, but I am beyond excited for this opportunity...and you're going to get to help first hand!
Is there a woman from history or present day who inspires you?
Celia Grace connects women around the world so they can help each other. Women in the United States and Europe help seamstresses in India and Cambodia earn respect and a living wage so they can better themselves, their families, and their communities. And Celia Grace seamstresses help brides have even more beautiful, joyful, and meaningful weddings.
By naming each dress after an inspiring woman, Celia Grace continues this cycle of building positive connections between women around the world. Last year’s dress names include Amelia (Earhart, pilot), Rachel (Carson, environmentalist), Susan (B. Anthony, abolitionist), Eleanor (Roosevelt, humanitarian), Rosa (Parks, civil rights activist), Eileen (Collins, astronaut), and Marie (Curie, scientist).
The 2015 collection features fine silks and vintage-inspired laces, illusion necklines, keyhole backs and a few dresses that convert from long to short and two organically-dyed pink dresses.
The dress we are naming is both sophisticated with its pleated chiffon bodice, and playful with its ruffled skirt and train. This gown awes all around. A fitted v-neck bodice at front becomes a dramatic open back with thin, crossed straps, beautifully showing off the confident bride. The body skimming silk crepe skirt gets the ultra-feminine treatment with rows of cascading ruffles in the back, fluttering into the train.
Fabrics: Silk crepe and silk chiffon.
Color Options: White, Ivory & Pink
(Belt not included: belt shown from Hushed Commotion)
