Illusion necklines provide gowns with exquisite detail, a touch more modesty and comfort than strapless gowns and all the elegance of a statement necklace. These modern gowns are flattering on any shape.


The Daring Bride – Impression Bridal 10399

If there is a way to be daring and sweet all at the same time, this is it. This Impression Bridal gown is fully committed to the illusion with a plunging ‘V’ shape and full illusion back. The petal appliques against the tulle skirt, gives it a softer, less formal look, appropriate for a variety of settings.

Available for order at De La Rosa’s Bridal & Tuxedo
319 E Bidwell Street in Folsom


The Classic Bride – Enzoani “Iverness” 

This full length Enzoani “Iverness” mermaid gown catches the eye with a lace-trimmed illusion neck and pearl buttons extending down the train. It is everything brides love in a classic look: Simple and elegant with just enough detail.

Available for order at Dreamnette
1850 Douglas Blvd. #914 in Roseville


The Dramatic Bride – Watters “Isa”

This 1920s-inspired gown is dripping with crystals and beading against a tulle backdrop. The illusion neck and back is beyond dramatic and all you need for a jaw dropping look.
