Illusion Options Galore

The fun thing about illusion netting is how versatile it is. New York Bride & Groom offers an extensive selection of glamorous wedding dresses that feature the full range of illusion options. Read on to learn more about the popular ways our wedding designers have incorporated this option into their gowns:

A Modern Neckline

Some brides avoid v-neck wedding dresses  for their big day. Why not give it an elegant and modern twist? Create a detailed v-neck bodice and incorporate an illusion neckline to add an elegant twist to your wedding dress.

Make it Backless

Or trick people into thinking that you have a backless wedding dress. Create the perfect illusion wedding dress by making it ‘backless’! You’ll add a whole new meaning to ‘business at the front, party in the back’ on your wedding day.

Go for an off the shoulder wedding dress!

Forget cap sleeves and rock an off the shoulder illusion wedding dress instead! Three-quarter sleeves and unique detailing is all you need to stand out on your big day. See more gorgeous examples of illusion netting at My Wedding

Tulle and lace complete the skirt with extraordinary appliqués, strategically placed along the enchanting hemline. Available colors: White, Ivory, and Ivory/Light Gold. Available sizes: 16-32.

Our Alterations Dept. Can Solve Your Cleavage Conundrum

It’s common for a bride to fall in love with a wedding gown that requires a few tweaks to be perfect. For instance, if a plunging neckline is making you feel drafty or too exposed, as we’ve seen, a simple solution might be to add some illusion netting. Our experienced alterations department can give you the look and coverage you desire.
