I found this dress at boutique bridal shop in SoHo (New York City) after having searched high and low from high-end retailers to discount bridal stores. I first fell in love with the delicate layers of silk organza. It was romantic, refined and classic, yet the ever-so-slightly unfinished edges spoke to the free-spirited side of my personality. Next, I loved the long row of silk buttons in the back and gorgeous train. The official color is ivory, but it is a clean and soft shade of ivory. The neckline is a slight sweetheart (which can be altered if you prefer a traditional sweetheart.) My husband was delighted and I received so many compliments from our guests on the dress specifically. It really was truly stunning and incredibly flattering. I wore this dress for four hours at the reception as I wore a different dress for our multicultural ceremony.
I’ve had just a few alterations which I’ve fully detailed in the Alterations section. When I went to pick up my dress at the seamstress, I mistakenly walked over to another dress that looked just like it. It was a Vera Wang! Even the seamstress was shocked at how similar they were.
I am selling the dress because I lost my job 6 months ago and I hope you consider it for your wedding day!
- Alterations: Train was removed for ease of walking/dancing, but there is a slight sweep of a few inches. Bust taken in slightly. There is a minor tear on the bottom of the back of dress and I'm happy to send you pictures of it to help you with your purchase decision. My height: 5'1" Dress height: 5'4"-5'5" (I wore it with 3 inch heels) Street size: 6 Bust size: 34D One piece of advice: if you decide you want the long train and go with another seller, just please find an extremely talented seamstress. Given the bias layers, it's easy to mess up the bustle and I've seem images online of it done well and also done horribly wrong. Take pictures of exactly what you want to your tailor! Since I only wore my dress at the reception, I did not care for a long train and I was paranoid about someone botching the alteration.
