When I started this adventure, my bridesmaid insisted I try on every style of dress in the store. I had no idea what I was looking for, but I totally fell in love with the silhouette of this dress!! I never thought I was the “mermaid” kind of girl, but this dress looked fabulous on the rack and even better on me!! I am 5″2 and was 130 at the time, with an hour-glass figure. I purchased this dress at Zola Keller on Las Olas in Fort Lauderdale. I trusted them for their impeccable seamstress work and professional work ethic. I was married in Islamorada in September 2012 on the beach, so needed only a few alterations made. I shortened the hem a bit, as I was wearing flats (beach wedding heels= uncomfortable); took a few layers of tulle out of the bottom for easier walking down the isle with a handicapped escort; and added some darts to the front and sides to accentuate my figure.
I am now 5 months pregnant, and am having a boy, so there is no need to save the dress for later use =( I hope that the next woman that wears this feels as beautiful as I did on their special day.
