Greetings, Real Weddings readers. After all this rain, I could use some sunshine. Here are a few gorgeous dresses from Sophia Tolli courtesy of Bellisima Bridal Boutique to brighten up your day.



Y11321 – District

For the chic, sophisticated bride, this A-line gown makes a bold statement with sleek dream taffeta draped through the bodice, hugging the hips, and gently falling into soft pickups throughout the skirt and chapel length train. District also offers a crystal hand-beaded lace Empire bodice with a Queen Anne neckline, cap sleeves and open keyhole back finished with a zipper concealed by covered buttons.


Y21365 – Juniper

Sparkle with this show-stopping mermaid in fantasy organza. Juniper showcases a dazzling dropped waist bodice with lace appliqués and a strapless sweetheart neckline. Directional pleating in the skirt spills into the chapel length train. Juniper also offers a corset back closure and removable straps.


Y21372 – Lilac

Sheer opulence distinguishes dream taffeta Lilac from the rest. This mermaid gown showcases the classic Sophia Tolli look we all love with a beautifully draped bodice, framing the hand-beaded and embroidered V-neckline and shoulder straps. Lilac also offers a sheer intricately beaded back bodice and a rich flourish of taffeta in the chapel length train, creating quite a dramatic effect. A concealed back zipper with diamante buttons completes the look.


Y21374 – Endine

Channel your inner goddess with this sensual slim A-line gown in angel chiffon. Endine’s simple strapless sweetheart neckline is trimmed with crystal hand-beaded tulle. Endine also offers an asymmetrically draped bodice and a softly draped waterfall skirt gently caught with matching appliqués at the hip. A corset back closure finished with a matching applique, a chic sweep train and removable straps are included.


Y21375 – Camellia

Bands of beautifully draped fantasy organza highlight the distinctive quality of Camellia’s strapless sweetheart neckline and dropped waist bodice. Lightly sequined lace appliqués adorn layers of pleated organza in the mermaid silhouette, spilling into the chapel length train. A corset back closure and removable straps add the finishing touches.
