Frequently Asked Questions

About Morilee & Madeline Gardner

What’s Morilee’s story?

When we first started designing wedding dresses, we heard the same themes over and over. Women wanted to walk down the aisle with confidence. They wanted to be comfortable and be themselves. Most of all, though, they just wanted to feel pretty, both inside and out.

That was more than 60 years ago, and brides still want now what they wanted then. We’ve taken the idea of making brides feel gorgeous and made it the cornerstone of our brand, coupling it with an unrelenting demand for quality and affordability. We know that when we create a dress, we’re not just making something to wear. We’re making magic.

Who is Madeline Gardner?

Providing priceless leadership for us is internationally renowned bridal designer Madeline Gardner. A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, she has been the driving force behind Morilee for over 25 years and sincerely loves every second of making women of all ages feel beautiful. Dress after gorgeous dress, she continues to create award winning designs that capture the essence of the modern bride.

Why should I trust Morilee?

We’ve solidified ourselves as experts in bridal attire and have expanded our designs to include luxurious collections for prom, quinceanera, homecoming, parties, social events and other special occasions. Whether you are looking for something elaborate or simple, reserved or bold, our contemporary, our award-winning dresses and gowns suit every age and style.

What’s in store for the Morilee brand?

We’re starting with the new logo and teasing the brand refresh. Guests should stay tuned for a new website and social media revamp, reflecting the way today’s brides view, shop, consume, and share content.
