Riane Miles

July 28,2018

We designed the gown together with the couple’s first dance in mind... 

They choreographed a formal foxtrot that was split in the middle with the groom spinning Riane out and removing her overskirt as a fast-beat country swing song came on and the overskirt came off, revealing her short 50’s style dancing dress underneath. Then they busted into some extreme Country Western Swing Dancing, with Riane flying through the air, upside down, and backwards, short dress swishing.

THE BODICE:  Hand beaded and appliquéd with lace that curves around Riane’s neck and V’s in at the waist in the back, making a statement with three inches of shirring at the princess lines, adding more fullness to the bell-shaped, scalloped-edge skirt.

THE ACCESSORIES: The hairpiece and garter are made of white swiss netting and hand beaded lace that match her dress. The garter has a Guava bow to match the color from the bridesmaid dresses.

THE OVERSKIRT: Five layers of fabric from white to cream and sheer to solid. The top layer is pure white organza with a silver sheen to it, with appliquéd lace and beading around the hemline. The next layer is cream ivy-leaf embroidered sheer gauze that peeks through the top organza layer. The other layers were light satins that added structure without need of a heavy crinoline.

Snaps and hooks secure the overskirt at the right side, making it easy to remove during the first dance.

Both skirts (full and short) feature reverse pleats in the side seams to allow for even more fullness (and twirling splendor) without adding bulk to the bride’s tiny waist.
