Boho Chic combined with Hollywood Starlet glamour comes to mind when we examine the intricacies of Sibillia’s embroidery and art deco sequin pattern. The neckline and shoulder straps have a beautiful border framing the face and matches the detachable dual shoulder Watteau.  There are so many similarities to the shoulder pads reminiscent of the 1940s Paris fashions worn by Joan Crawford, Marlena Dietrich and Rita Hayworth.  Brides are falling in love once again with Hollywood fashion from bygone eras. 


This Aline boasts a plunging Décolletage with beautiful beading encompassing an empire waist and crossed bustline pattern. If you have never considered an empire waist or empire bust line, you should.  It creates a more curvaceous bust when it may be physically lacking on a bride and minimizes the size of the waist. This specially designed glitter pattern fabric with the luxurious maharani silk tulle pleats creates an eye catching flow.  The extravagant Cathedral length cape with marabou and ostrich feather embellishments ads the perfect decadent charm turning this from an elegant dress to one befitting a Contessa.


Chesara blends the charm of by-gone-eras with the modern chic of new.  High collared presence in fashion is making a comeback, and yes most certainly in the bridal industry.  The understated elegance of fabric gently gracing the neck and jawline is a force to be reckoned with in Europe.  Pay attention brides, you’ll want to be one of the first to embrace this Parisian fashion trend.  Padded shoulders and the gentle folds of the 1990’s balloon sleeves is also seeing a resurgence in bridal fashion for 2023.  Chesara has a wonderful mix of silk fabrics, boho inspired embroidery, sheer balloon sleeves with embellished wrist cuffs, and a dimensional scalloped train to die for second only to the the feather accents strategically placed throughout this bridal creation.


Who said strapless is out of fashion?  If it is structurally sound with extensive boning, drill and internal support systems the likes of which is seen in Batistiella, a strapless sheath is no longer a bride or photographer’s nightmare.  No more slippage exposing bodily features everyone wished remained hidden, and no more candid shots ruined by the bride tugging on her dress.  This architectural wonder features original silk embroidery with an exquisite Chantilly lace under shell, single string hand beading, dimensional sequins and delicate 3D flowers.  The sweetheart neckline is just captivating.  The piece de’ resistance, the incredible high color silk tulle watteau with embellished cap sleeves states, “I am a bridal force to be resigned with reckoned with, all other Divas stand aside”. No veil is needed with this extraordinary piece of art. 


Scarlet is one of the personal favorites of employees at Couture By Tess Bridal.  Scarlet blends modern textures and style with traditional, old world allure.  The luxurious lace patterns, sweetheart neckline, illusion bodice overlay, gracefully accentuated sheer lace sleeves and medieval inspired ruffled bell cuffs are a captivating fashion statement for any trumpet silhouette.   This 2-n-1 masterpiece is accompanied by a full detachable overskirt to complete a majestic ensemble.  Scarlett calls for admirers to fall in love with her.
