Dress Theory: "Kelly" by Stephanie Allin

Kelly by Stephanie Allin is quite possibly the most timeless gown available in our Nashville bridal boutique. The sophistication of the silk dupioni skirt paired with the stunning Chantilly lace top provides the perfect combination for the traditional Southern bride.

Our Nashville bridal stylists love pairing this gorgeous gown with a stunning raw silk bow. To complete the look, we suggest a lace and silk tulle cathedral length veil and a pair of drop crystal earrings.

At the reception, we would suggest trading the bow and veil for a beaded sash from a.b. Ellie.

White Dresses Co-Founder and Nashville Bridal Boutique Owner, Kara Leonard, shared why she loves the Kelly Gown by Stephanie Allin.

Kelly by Stephanie Allin epitomizes the classic ball gown. I absolutely love the pleated skirt with pockets and think the lace top is extremely feminine. To complete the look, I would customize the gown by adding an additional foot on the train. Many of our brides have also customized the neckline into a sweetheart cut.
