Many glamorous brides are choosing dresses from the Reverie Collection. Reverie offers a unique, non-traditional approach to dressing the bride. The line was designed with the inspiration to create beautiful, current, ready-to-wear inspired dresses and gowns in appropriate bridal colors.
This line was designed for the bride who is confident in her own unique sense of style, and wants her wedding attire to reflect her individual fashion point of view. She is as much the bride who wants the perfect dress wear to the justice of the peace, or the bride whose wedding takes place on a yacht in Greece, as the bride who has a grand wedding but wants to show her individuality.
The unique sophistication of Reverie’s ready-to-wear inspired line appeals to the confident, non-traditional bride. Unlike “Princess Bride” style wedding attire, these gowns are modern and sleek. Fashionistas will love the Cairo dress, a short baby doll dress with beaded straps and ruffle hem. Modern art aficionados will appreciate the strikingly-unique Seville, a strapless, light silk shantung gown with delicate embroidery along the slight drop waist.
