Fall 2017 Ivy & Aster Wedding Gowns We’re Loving

Ivy Aster Wedding Dresses 2017

Since 2010, Atlanta-based designer Jessica Brown has created simple, feminine designs with refined style under the brand name Ivy & Aster. These wedding gowns are whimsical and romantic whether you’re planning a destination wedding or a grand affair.

The Fall 2017 collection, titled Take to the Sky, is inspired by air, wind and sky and everything that takes flight. The collection celebrates a woman’s beauty while allowing her to shine through romantic-boho designs. Take a look at some of our favorite dresses below!


Ivy Aster Audra Wedding Dress

This light and airy A-line gown is a great start to our list of favorites.

The champagne-colored Audra gown boasts a dreamy plunging v-neckline and matching v-back. The layered skirt has a soft look and feel and features delicate ivory lace embroidery for that hint of vintage. The cap sleeves are a classic touch and the chapel-length train is a gentle finish to the overall romantic design.

Since this gown is traditional and elegant, we recommend natural-looking makeup and simple accessories like a pair of drop earrings and a pearl necklace or bracelet.


Ivy Aster Ayla Wedding Dress

The feminine Ayla wedding dress is a modern princess dream come true.

The top of the gown leads with an elegant v-neckline with illusion lace applique covering the bodice. The illusion detail continues to the cap sleeves and sensual side cutouts above the natural waist.

The flowing, full skirt is crafted from multiple layers of billowy tulle and the bride looks like she’s floating on cloud 9. A bold v-back and cathedral-length train finish the timeless ensemble. It’s ultra-romantic and we love it for a grand setting like an outdoor garden soiree.


Ivy Aster Cooper Wedding Dress

Combining sexy allure with regal flair is the beautiful Cooper wedding gown.

The feminine ball gown is fit for royalty, similar to the Ayla gown above, but with more sophistication. The plunging v-neckline, crafted from dreamy chiffon, is a dramatic start, with lace applique detailing on the sides of the bodice. The chiffon v-back takes a modern turn with sheer mesh holding together a trail of fabric-covered buttons.

The show-stopper is the tiered ruffle skirt, perfect for twirling around the dance floor with the love of your life. We picture this stunning gown inside a historic castle, whether it’s a destination wedding in Ireland or Scotland.


Ivy Aster Halle Wedding Dress

Another full skirt option, but this one is covered in head-to-toe lace.

The Halle wedding gown features a plunging v-neckline covered in beautiful lace with a sheer mesh inset leading all the way up to the collar. Intricate floral-lace applique glides up the illusion back with fabric-covered buttons down the middle.

This style also features a grandiose tiered skirt with all-over vintage Chantilly lace and a beautiful chapel-length train. It’s a great combination of traditional style merged with contemporary accents.


Ivy Aster Hammond Wedding Dress

For something a bit more fitted, check out the lovely Hammond wedding gown.

This long-sleeve gown boasts a fit-and-flare silhouette so you can really show off your curves. Illusion lace is featured on the v-neckline, natural waist and right above the knee before the skirt begins to flare. The illusion lace detailing also makes up the fitted long sleeves and the illusion back with buttons cascading down the back.

We love this option for an intimate fall or winter wedding. We’d play up the sophisticated ensemble with an all-white tablescape and decor for the reception.


Ivy Aster Heron Wedding Dress

For something a little more relaxed, and boasting boho-Grecian flair, the beautiful Heron wedding dress is very romantic.

The soft and airy design features an A-line silhouette and unique bodice. The bottom layer is a v-neckline with intricate lace detail that wraps around the bride to a racerback. On top of that is a draped chiffon v-neck that extends into a deep cowl back. The draping is absolutely amazing and the double-layered bodice creates beautiful visual appeal.

The dreamy chiffon skirt gently sweeps the floor with a chapel-length train and a small side slit is a sensual touch. This style is perfect for a destination wedding, especially if you’re saying “I do” on the beach.


Ivy Aster Monarch Wedding Dress

If you’re into strapless designs, then prepare to fall in love with the Monarch gown.

The pleated voile bodice leads with a sweetheart neckline and a delicately embroidered floral-ivy pattern with specks of metallic gold for just enough sparkle. The beautiful detail continues onto the A-line skirt, which features a double-layered inner petticoat for extra volume.

This timeless gown works for any season and any grand venue would fit the princess-inspired look. We’d choose elegant gold bridesmaid dresses to match the glistening detail on the gown.


Ivy Aster Ophelia Audra Wedding Dress

Our final fave from the fall 2017 collection is the super-unique Ophelia wedding dress. It’s bold, daring and feminine all at once.

The top of the ethereal gown boasts all-over ivory lace applique with a peplum finish. Tiny spaghetti straps lead to the plunging v-back for a playful edge.

The full, circle skirt features billowy layers of blush-colored tulle that ignites a daydream all on its own. The cathedral-length train is the dramatic end that this stunning design deserves. Since this gown has so many features, we’d keep the accessories bold yet simple like a pair of statement earrings and lacy heels.
