In Dennis Basso wedding dresses, the key is in the details. Not completely surprising for a man who got his start in the fashion in the fur industry. Hand beading, hand-covered buttons and handsewn embellishment on the dresses (all created in New York) guarantee quality. Even on seemingly simple dresses, the details shine in extensive pleating, fine embroidery or luxurious layers.

The wedding dresses come in flexible silhouettes made to flatter any woman’s shape, but the dominant styles in the collection are ball gowns, mermaids and dropped waist dresses. Sweep and chapel trains do not overwhelm and make Dennis Basso wedding dresses perfect for weddings with an old Hollywood black tie theme, glamorous receptions in ballrooms — anywhere a little drama is called for.
