Bridal Gown Fashion

I'm very excited to introduce you to Daphne, Bianca, and Stella - three of the newest gowns designed by Alisa Benay. These pretty ladies are all designed with the Victorian era in mind, combining corsets, ruffles and bustles with the sensibility of a 21st Century bride in mind. As a fashion designer, Alisa combs through racks of vintage clothing and pages of Renaissance novels all in the name of inspiration. The result is a collection filled with flirty and romantic details like flounce hems and ribbon corsets.

Pictured above is the lovely Daphne gown, done up in silk and velvet with a French Alencon lace overlay. This one shouldered mermaid gown with chapel length train and back buttons is befitting of the name Bianca.

This silk chiffon Stella gown combines sexy with sweet by pairing delicate lace straps with a silhouette that leaves little to the imagination.

Alisa Benay has been making special appearances at some of my favorite bridal shops including Gabriella's Bridal Salon right here in New York City. Equally as charmed by the designer as she is the details on these gowns, salon owner Gabriella believes "Alisa Benay gowns are perfect for a bride looking for that romantic, vintage feel. They are gorgeous!"
