“For those with romantic hearts, Alvina Valenta is for you,” reads the wedding designer’s website. But it’s not just romantics who will love Alvina Valenta wedding gowns. Any brides with a desire to wear a classically elegant wedding dress with a hint of modern edge will love these looks.
Designed and sewn in New York City by Jessica Williams, each dress in the Alvina Valenta collection is a dreamy, ethereal one specially created for brides with a romantic, sentimental side. Meant to highlight the bride’s personal style, these gowns also reflect the fact she will be joining her true love to begin their life together, so there is always something a little surprising about them.
Silhouettes range in shape, but are always feminine and not too fitted. Ballgowns come with bateau necklines for a balanced look, while full-skirted A-lines are full of graceful, soft movement.
Inspired by fashion sourced in dance studios, ballerina-style straps are a gorgeous, dainty look on many bodices. Daring brides seeking a trendsetting style may not be dazzled by the traditional shapes and fit of the Alvina Valenta look, but brides seeking a timeless look will be delighted by them.
Fabrics used include luxurious Mikado and marbled silks, multi-tiered tulle with horse-hair trim and a bridal favorite (especially in Alvina dresses): French Alencon lace. Shades of ivory and white dominate the gowns for that classic bridal look.
Beading in the 2016-2017 collection is inspired by “The Garden Of Mystery And Enchantment,” as seen in the sparkly, botanical embellishment on dress bodices. Subtle shimmer seems to be sourced from inside layers with metallic threading, crystals and beading cleverly woven within fabrics to create a luminous look. The perfect way to capture and maintain that bridal glow throughout the day. Personalization comes in the forms of beaded jackets, lovely long-sleeved gloves or jewel-encrusted belts.
Brides seeking an iconic, individualized look for the day they join their partner in life together may find what they are looking for in the Alvina Valenta wedding dress collection. Impeccable fit and signature intricate embellishment define an Alvina wedding dress … and the bride who wears one.
