Marisa got its start in 1990 and has been designing beautiful gowns ever since. Tamara Kristen is the head designer at Marisa and creates gown that have a traditional feel but with modern elements. The focus of a Marisa gown is always the fit and structure, ensuring a bride will look and feel her best on her wedding day.
The gowns are started with quality materials such as silk and lace. Silk and lace are the hallmark materials of Marisa gowns. Marisa dresses also come with Carmeuse, chiffon, and tulle details as well.
Because fit and structure is the main focus of gowns at Marisa, the silhouettes are simple but elegant. Silhouettes from this collection include, ball gown, fit and flare, layered ball gown, A-line, mermaid, and apron style gowns. The apron style gowns have regular skirts, but lace drapes over the top of them, stopping short of the bottom of the gown. Additionally, some of the gowns have shirred netted English style skirts. Another design detail is that some dresses come with lace or beaded overlays, draping the skirts in soft but subtle detail.
Speaking of details, Marisa dresses are not short on them! With this collection a bride can find just about any detail she’s looking for. Beaded bodices and beaded gowns are sparkly and fun. Some of the dresses come with small rosettes and some of the rosettes are beaded in the middle, adding a deeper design element that is pleasing to the eye. Some of the gowns also include jeweled or pearl straps. Illusion lace sleeves are another stunning design detail that can be found in some of the Marisa dresses.
Necklines in this collection are flattering to the wearer as well. Deep V-neck, some even to the waist add a sexy element to these gowns. Other necklines include, sweetheart, V-neck, and asymmetrical necklines. At Heavenly Bridal Boutique we carry a variety of gowns by Marisa.
