The V-neckline on our striking Penelope gown will accentuate your décolletage while the sheer side panels emphasize your waistline, further highlighted with a delicate pearl belt. You’ll have a hard time choosing between two different sleeves options or wearing it sleeveless, but any way you decide to own this look, the gorgeous fitted skirt with a back godet for a flowing train will create a stunning silhouette on your wedding day.


Sleeve options in order of photos- 1: Gathered sleeve, 2: Sleeveless, 3: Simple pleated sleeve.


Penelope is shown here with an additional mesh modesty panel attached at the neckline, which can come with the gown upon request if you’d like more coverage. Please be in touch if you’re ordering online. If you’re trying on Penelope in-store, our stylists will have modesty panel options to show you during your appointment.
