BHLDN is really spoiling the vegan bride! Sure, they are not very sustainably minded since all their collections are based on polyester fibers but for brides seeking a princess look for their special day, they are a clear affordable option. It seems yesterday we showcased their 2019 Spring Collection and today it’s already time to look at what they have in store for the Fall bride. Again, their choices don’t disappoint, there’s something for every style!

 

ACANTHA GOWN

Accented with a scattering of sequins, oversized floral appliques adorn the fitted bodice and full tulle skirt of this frothy Watters ballgown. The appliques extend along the one-shoulder tulle strap, hiding its back closure for a flawless appearance from every angle.

 

THE ARTEMIA GOWN

Glittering. Glamorous. Incandescent. Fully embellished with allover crystals, this exquisite Willowby by Watters gown is a statement piece with sparkle that rivals the stars. A deep v-neckline and double banding at the waist create an impeccably flattering silhouette, while diaphanous sleeves make a dramatic finishing touch.

 

THE AVANCE GOWN

Seeking the pinnacle of bridal drama? Look no further than this extraordinary Watters ballgown. Below the fitted sweetheart bodice, the skirt explodes into frothy layers of pleated tulle-the ultimate statement piece for the modern bride.

 

 

THE BETHONY GOWN

Layers of tulle and lace lend intriguing textural contrast to this boho Watters beauty. At the bodice, gathered tulle straps descend into a plunging v-neckline, offering a glimpse of the intricate lace below. The skirt begins with a layer of Swiss dot tulle, paired with a tiered overskirt accented by lace panels.

 

THE CAROLINE DRESS

A high neckline with slender straps finishes the fitted bodice of this structured faille Amsale dress. A flared skirt completes the look in figure-flattering style. I choose this gown from BHLDN Bridesmaids Fall Collection for pink lovers brides and it’s also available in other colors.

 

THE CORDOVA GOWN

A fitted column of graphic, bohemian lace forms the foundation of this strapless Watters gown with a structured bodice. A tulle overlay skirt shows a just peek of the lace below while creating an A-line silhouette with gorgeously airy movement.

 

THE EASTCOTE GOWN

A sweetheart neckline completes this strapless Whispers and Echoes column gown in allover lace. Wear it on its own for a Hepburn-esque straight silhouette, or pair it with the detachable chiffon Eastcote Train for stunning volume and movement.

 

THE HARLAN GOWN

A whimsical, floral lace bodice pairs with an airy A-line skirt made from romantic tulle, which extends into a slight train. Sheer mesh panels provide subtle coverage for the plunging neckline and v-shaped side cutouts, while a slender grosgrain ribbon ties at the back to accentuate the waist of this modern romantic Watters gown.

 

THE HAVEN GOWN

Modern and understated at first glance, this cap-sleeved gown by Jenny Yoo reveals its romantic side with an open back edged in scalloped lace embroidery. Princess seams and a fitted skirt assure a flattering and subtly sexy fit, white nearly invisible illusion mesh secures the deep v-neckline.

 

THE ISMAY GOWN

Four different embroidery techniques, all worked by hand, combine to create the lush, leafy adornments of this relaxed column BHLDN gown. Beading throughout accentuates the luxuriously layered effect, while the embroidered shell is paired with a separate slip lining for added contrast.

 

THE KAIA GOWN

Incredibly flattering thanks to stretch faille construction, this modern Watters gown has a luxurious hand feel and strapless silhouette finished by an elegant train. Fantastically chic when worn without adornments, it also welcomes the addition of dramatic veils, overskirts, and other accessories.

 

THE KEEGAN GOWN

Offering the perfect balance of 90s-inspired minimalism and bohemian ease, this glamorous Watters gown is made from figure-hugging champagne charmeuse with fully functional lace-up back that assures a perfect fit. A high-low hemline with fringe detail is a head-turning feature, guaranteeing gorgeous movement on the dance floor.

 

THE KEELY GOWN

Inset lace details at the sleeve and godet add subtle softness to this contemporary Amy Kuschel gown. Structured crepe construction and a plunging neckline combine for a look that’s sleek and altogether modern.

 

THE LATIMER GOWN

Impeccably fitted for a sultry silhouette, this allover lace Whispers and Echoes gown features a plunging illusion neckline and an open back with button accents. Fitted through the hips, the skirt kicks out into a full train that makes a dramatic statement.

 

THE LYNETTE GOWN

A vintage-inspired midi silhouette gets a chic update for the modern, city hall bride. This flirty Watters gown pairs a full skirt in Swiss dot tulle with a fitted bustier bodice. Pearl studding and wide grosgrain straps add charming detail.

 

THE MARSEILLE GOWN

Slender, beaded straps and a scoop neckline top this column Jenny by Jenny Yoo gown, bedecked in allover ivory embroidery with matching beadwork over a nude lining. Wear on its own for a chic silhouette, or pump up the volume with a detachable tulle overskirt.

 

THE MOE GOWN

Slender straps and a scoop neckline complete the structured bodice of this sleek faille Amsale dress. Fitted through the hips, the skirt kicks out for a figure-flattering finish.I choose this gown from BHLDN Bridesmaids Fall Collection for pink lovers brides and it’s also available in other colors.

 

THE ORIELLE GOWN

Hand-placed floral appliques and embroidery float atop a layer of gossamer tulle, bringing airy dimensionality to this A-line  Watters gown. A nude lining provides contrast for the ivory embellishments, which extend through the sheer kimono sleeves.

 

THE PHILOMENE GOWN

Intricate corded lace was designed specifically to suit the silhouette of this Watters gown, resulting in a flawless fit and lighter-than-air construction. Cap sleeves and a plunging neckline complete the bodice, while the open back is embellished with a row of tiny pearl buttons.

 

THE PORTLAND GOWN

A corded lace bodice adds dimension to this classic Jenny Yoo ballgown silhouette with a sweeping taffeta skirt. Piping outlines the bodice for a modern take on lace, while sweet button details finish the open v-back. Best of all, it has pockets!

 

THE RENE GOWN

Clean lines and a straight-across neckline bring timeless appeal to this structured faille Amsale dress with a skirt that offers subtle volume. I choose this gown from BHLDN Bridesmaids Fall Collection for pink lovers brides and it’s also available in other colors.

 

THE RIVERS GOWN

A fresh take on our beloved Conrad Gown, this Jenny Yoo flowy chiffon style features a full skirt and gauzy split sleeves that can be worn open or draped over the arms. Wear it alone for Grecian elegance, or layer it with dramatic accessories for extra sparkle.

 

THE ROMA GOWN

This Whispers and Echoes mock neck mini is a modern masterpiece, ideal for a city hall ceremony, elopement, or playful second look. Meticulously embellished, it pairs dimensional floral appliques with a scattering of beaded stars for a hint of sparkle.

 

THE SEELY GOWN

Accented by silver threads and intricate beading, embroidered ivory blooms cascade down the bodice and across the skirt of this frothy tulle Watters ballgown. A plunging v-neckline neckline with an illusion panel and delicate, sheer straps finish the look.

 

THE SUMMER GOWN

Strikingly modern, this form-fitting column Watters gown is made from comfortable, figure-hugging stretch lace with a uniquely geometric motif. Tiny pearl buttons accent the open back and long sleeves, while the plunging neckline features an illusion panel. Scattered sequins atop the lace provide subtle shimmer.

 

THE TANA GOWN

Clean and modern, this elegantly fitted Jenny Yoo gown features a v-neckline, dramatic open back, and princess seaming for an especially flattering silhouette. Wear it with the floaty, detachable shoulder capes for ethereal drama, or without for an understated look that’s incredibly chic.

 

THE VANESSA GOWN

Ivory corded lace over an ivory lining lends subtle texture and tonality to a timeless Jenny Yoo silhouette with a v-neckline and slight train. Scalloped lace outlines the bodice, while lace appliques atop sheer illusion mesh frames the open back.

 

THE VESPERINE GOWN

Richly layered embellishments bring show-stopping detail to this strapless Watters ballgown. Floral embroidery, accented by dimensional organza appliques and intricate beading, cascades from the structured bodice across the ethereal tulle skirt.
