10 Julie Vino Wedding Gowns We Love From the 2017 Roma Collection
Known for her feminine yet sultry gowns, Tel-Aviv based designer Julie Vino always catches our eye. Her designs are crafted with unique fabrics sourced from around the world and boast modern silhouettes, luxe, romantic details and intricate embellishments.
The designer prides herself on creating wedding dresses that the bride would want to wear beyond her big day, and that was definitely the case for her Spring/Summer 2017 Roma collection. The collection, captured on the charming streets of Rome, was influenced by the culture and architecture of the Italian metropole. Soft silky fabrics, embroidered lace and sparkly accents are just a few details that made these gowns truly beautiful.
Instead of just talking about this amazing collection, we definitely need to see the designs. Fall in love with these stunning gowns yourself.
First up, this amazing fit-and-flare wedding dress. The ivory-nude Agusta gown boasts all-over lace embroidery from the v-neckline down to the sheer skirt. Before reaching the cathedral train, lined organza is used as a unique detail at the hemline.
At the top of the gown, double spaghetti straps split at the shoulders to create a sexy v-shape along the stunning open v-back. More illusion lace embroidery is implemented on the sides. The bodice also features intricate patterned applique full of sparkly beading.
This bridal look ends with a charming, feminine twist: sheer pockets!
For a hint of sparkle and sexy, the gold Tatiana gown is very sophisticated. The sheath gown is covered in a dazzling leaf applique pattern, including the sheer long sleeves.
What makes this gown really unique is the illusion neckline features sparkly beading to create an illusion off-the-shoulder look. A bare open back has more leaf applique climbing up the shoulders to form a romantic v-shape.
For a sensual nod, the thigh-high slit is absolutely show-stopping and gives us red carpet vibes. We love this gown for a glam wedding ceremony or bold reception look.
One of the most surprising wedding dresses of this collection is the Pricilla gown. The design is actually convertible, allowing the bride to get two looks in one.
The ivory gown boasts a square netting pattern on the bodice and the ¾-sleeves along with large vine-motif embroidery. Tiny beading at the waist creates a mini belt aesthetic and the sexy v-back contains the same embellishment.
For the fun twist: the dreamy silk ball gown skirt, with modern pockets and a cathedral train, is actually an overskirt. Once it’s removed, a silky figure-hugging column skirt is revealed. We love the versatility of the design for the bride that wants a totally different look and feel from ceremony to reception.
If you’re wanting a daring and cutting-edge wedding gown, it doesn’t get any better than the Florentina dress.
This sexy-glam work of art boasts Grecian flair through intricate silver beading and floral applique. The plunging v-neck paired with the double slits in the skirt are made for the bride that wants to be seen. You’re sure to turn a few heads with this gown.
We imagine this wedding dress for a destination wedding like desert nuptials in Zion National Park or a sandy beach wedding in the Bahamas. Pair this look with open-toe sandals, a beaded arm cuff and matching headpiece.
Want something sexy without showing a ton of skin? This curve-friendly Claudia gown is both sultry and romantic.
The top of the mermaid gown features an ivory/nude lining with a polka dot pattern to create visual interest. The small v-neckline boasts stunning 3D floral lace applique that extends out to create off-the-shoulder sleeves. The applique is also included along the bodice and bottom of the drop waist.
The open back is super sophisticated while the tulle skirt and cathedral train is a whimsical touch. We love this combination for the feminine bride that also embraces her sexuality.
For the more traditional bride, this next wedding dress is glam and romantic. The A-line gown has a sweetheart neckline and lavish gold and silver beading all over the bodice and hips. In the center, the beads create a beautiful angel wing pattern.
A tulle overlay covers the gown in soft lace and the beaded spaghetti straps add more sparkle. The straps create a large v-shape for the bold open back. Adding a touch of femininity are the sparkly beaded floral accents that are adorned throughout the gown.
The great thing about this design is that it truly works for every season and every type of event—whether you’re saying “I do” in a spring garden or inside a church in December. Just add a warm stole!
Another two-in-one dress option, but this one has less of a surprise element. The strapless Valentina wedding dress has a small v-neck and a lace-embroidered bodice paired with a sleek silk A-line skirt.
For a dramatic addition, the detachable lace overskirt creates a ball gown silhouette with a cathedral train. The skirt also features one of the designers favorite hidden treasures that we keep seeing in this collection—the ever-loving pocket. As a vintage nod, the lace puff sleeves are also a detachable option.
Our final gown from the collection is made for the bride who loves one of the most popular wedding dress fabrics: lace. The strapless Camilla mermaid gown is covered in all-over lace. For extra vintage flair, brides can add the long detachable bell sleeves.
This gown also partakes in the open back trend, but a scalloped lace edge creates a delicate v-shape. On the lower back, a feminine and sexy ribbon corset extends about halfway down the drop waist.
To complete the look, a soft, wavy ponytail and a pearl necklace would be minimal accents to allow the traditional fabric, and the bride, to really shine.
