Bridal Party Dress-Up: Mori Lee by Madeline Gardner!

From start to finish, the wedding planning process can be stressful, but don’t let the hustle and bustle of finding vendors and a venue get you down. As for dressing your bridal party it can prove to be your hardest task—you need to choose what color, kind of fabric, length, and silhouette. A good way to start your bridal party dress-up journey is to think of what kind of tone you want your wedding to convey. Do you want your girls to be wearing frilly and fancy gowns, or do you want them to be wearing chic and elegant party dresses that they’ll be able to enjoy again? Let’s face it, a majority of bridesmaids gowns end up in the closet, never to be worn again, and are forever submitted to the Bridesmaid Dress Gods. At MissesDressy, we’ve got you covered, for the Mother of the Bride & Mother of the Groom, Bridesmaid, Flower girl, and your dress, too, from the elegant wedding designs from Mori Lee by Madeline Gardner!

Everyone wants Mom to look beautiful and feel her very best. Known for its perfect fit, taffeta is an elegant and luxurious fabric, which is made of fine silk. Mori Lee VM has a vast selection of Mother of the Bride and Groom gowns. Here’s two picks from our wardrobe to get you started. Modest and sophisticated without compromising timeless beauty, this vivacious evening gown exudes class. A strapless neckline allows for comfort and is ultra feminine. The neckline and upper bodice are delicately adorned with a cluster of sequins and beads. Ruching and gathering at the bodice allows for a forgiving waistline. This gown also comes with a matching jacket. Another choice is this off the shoulder evening gown by Mori Lee VM, the off the shoulder neckline is sexy and sophisticated. Ruching and slight pleating also allow for a very forgiving silhouette and is done in a modern criss-cross fashion. The straps are adorned with a brooch on each side, and the gathered bodice is cinched with a belt embellished with a brooch. The back is equally stunning with a slight V-shape and dotted buttons from mid back to the top of the bum. Very elegant and super sexy!



Your flower girl represents you when you were a little girl, hence the spray of delicate flowers down the aisle. Flower girl dresses were, in the past, identical to the bride’s wedding gown, but you don’t have to match the gowns perfectly. As you can see in this darling taffeta and tulle flower girl gown by Flower Girls by Mori Lee, you’ll find a modern and sophisticated look. The neckline is a high halter for your little mini-bride. Intricate features of side gathered fabric with a delicate flower embellishment, and an underlay of fun tulle falls elegantly to the floor. Flower girl dresses are saved and stored for posterity, or can be used for Princess or Bride Halloween Costumes, or even for an elegant party like your flower girl’s communion (if she still fits in the dress, of course).

Perfect for your junior bridesmaid, bridesmaid, or Maid of Honor, the Bridesmaids by Mori Lee collection has a variety of gowns and dresses that will fit the bill for your wedding. Luxury and intricate details are certainly not compromised within this delightful collection.

This stunning diagonal neckline cocktail bridesmaid dress comes in a variety of colors suitable for any season like Espresso for Fall, Fuchsia for Summer, Raspberry for Spring, and Navy for Winter weddings.

The floor length skirt flows out beautifully into a slight train. Another choice is this jaw dropping strapless sweetheart wedding gown with an elegant and form fitting trumpet silhouette. Notice the delicate flower embellishments at the hip and waist, which also adds a touch of romance and divine gracefulness.
