Wedding Dress Crush: BHLDN’s Vivienne Gown

Hey, all you brides out there: You’ve got to see this one.  SERIOUSLY.

Introducing the Vivienne Gown from BHLDN.  Absolutely breathtaking!  What do you guys think?

(BHLDN is ‘Beholden’ without the vowels.  I was puzzled by this for a while so I decided to look it up.  Adorable!  Thank you, Anthropologie.  ‘Beholden’ has a Dutch history, which means, ‘to keep.’)

Here’s a closeup of that beautiful beading on the top:




I’m absolutely in LOVE.  It’s radically different from the wedding dress that I had for my own wedding (which will always be my absolute favorite) but in an alternate reality, my dress would have been this one!  I love that it’s like simple and clean with just enough drama to make it special without going over the top.  Like…elegance without trying.  And it looks super light and comfortable~  I’ve seen more and more illusion necklines lately but this one definitely hits it out of the park.

For the bride with her sights set high in the sky, this soft cloud-grey gown is complete with elegant corded lace and hand-embroidered silver beading. The illusion tulle neckline and sheer back paneling add an extra delicate feel. This stunning design is from Catherine Deane, who creates all of her own original, exquisite artworks. Back zip and covered buttons. Silk tulle, polyester lining. Professionally clean. Imported.

  • Can be shortened; using an experienced bridal tailor is recommended
  • Bust cups
  • Recommend pairing this gown with a veil in Ivory
