Gowns For Days | Amanda Wakeley, Sposa “Cleopatra”

There are so many stunning gowns that have been designed and worn by beautiful brides – and every single one should be show cased and swooned over. With that, welcome to my “Gowns for Days” collection.

Every day I will feature a swoon worthy gown by a various designer. I hope this collection inspires you or helps you find the gown of your dreams.


Amanda Wakeley, Cleopatra

DESIGNER: Amanda Wakeley

DRESS: Sposa – Cleopatra

DESCRIPTION: From Amandawakeley.com “This exotic Cleopatra inspired backless wedding dress has a stunning embellishment adorning the open back with a free flowing skirt.”

PAIR WITH: A jeweled headpiece, open-toed gold strappy pumps and a bouquet fit for a goddess.

PERFECT VENUE: Somewhere formal, but not traditional. An old whitewashed warehouse or an outdoor tent with draped ceilings and large statement chandeliers.

WHY I LOVE IT: It’s trendy but stunning. It’s a gown for the non-princess bride, the bride who wants to make a statement. The embellishment is gorgeous and the back is breath taking! When you say your vows, your back may be to your guests – but they won’t stop ohhhing and ahhhhing!!!

OVERALL LOOK: medieval goddess, chic, fashion forward

GROOM’S ATTIRE: Black tux, for sure.
