Friday Favorites: Shakespeare Wedding

By: Taylor Clark

“I know no ways to mince it in love, but directly to say, I love you.”

-William Shakespeare, Henry V

Hello, lovely Meant To Be subscribers, and welcome to another installment of Friday Favorites! I’m Taylor, the newest member of the MTB family. This week’s “Favorites” is inspired by the literary love guru William Shakespeare. Though often accompanied by a groan from high school students, Shakespeare’s works have much to teach us about the art of loving someone. It can be nerve-racking, as is the case of Portia and Bassanio. It can be head-over-heels, like Miranda and Ferdinand. And if you’re anything like Titania and Oberon, it can be a passionate roller coaster. Hopefully, like many of his comedies, your love journey with your significant other will end in a wedding. If that is the case, we have selected three MTB dresses that will capture the essence of your Shakespearean romance.


The Merchant of Venice Wedding

Coco Anais: CA200

We absolutely adore this Coco Anais ballgown, complete with what we call a “train-for-days.” Its champagne color and silver embellishments add a modern touch while its lusciously full bottom and modest neckline ensure classic elegance. This gown is perfect for the bride who hopes to channel the heroine of Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, Portia, who embodies a similar blending of tradition and progressiveness.

The Tempest Wedding

This exquisite gown holds a special place in our hearts here at MTB. Its silver lace appliqués quickly entranced us. If you hope to capture the magical allure of The Tempest, this gown is the perfect garment for you.

Hayley Paige: Chantelle

Chantelle is the perfect gown for any bride hoping to recreate the whimsical woodland wonders of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. From the ethereal flow of Hayley Paige’s signature full skirt to the delicate floral details, Chantelle is the love spell we never knew we needed.
