The “Celebration” dress boasts exquisite details of intricate beaded embroidery and luxurious silk satin fabric.
It is truly a stunning wedding dress.
If you (like I did) trailed your nightgown, towel, or robe up & down the stairs as a little girl imagining her wedding dress train flowing behind her, then *this is the dress for you*!!
Reem Acra’s “Celebration” cost over $5,000 to buy. (A gift from my parents, I don’t know the breakdown of tax; purchased at Saks Fifth Avenue.)
•covered buttons down back and down part of the train
•long train that bustles so beautifully
•ivory silk satin
I am 5’4″ (& b/t 115-120 lbs) and wear “street clothes” sizes 2, 4, & 6 (depending on the item & maker). The dress will also work for someone likely up to 5’7″ — I wore very tall heels; this allowed us to keep as much length as possible.
This gown is gently used and I am willing to sell it for $2,600 (not dry cleaned) or $3,000 if you want me to dry clean it prior to shipping it to you. Additionally, I will give you the underskirt for free (see pic). We can split the cost of shipping, unless you are local (in which case we can arrange pick-up).
The beadwork is stunning. The dress has approx 1/4″ wide straps (all with beading detail); the color is ivory. The bustles are done (see pics); there is one bustle that will need to be resewn (the safety pin holds the spot so you know where to have it sewn, see pic). The top has approx 12 small beads that came off (but these can be easily resewn, as they are in the same spot/line of thread). The three very, very small circles (front fold, see pic) I am told should come out when cleaned. There is one small snag at the bottom of the train, but it is covered by the way the dress “falls.” There are also snaps sewn into the inside top to allow for a strapless bra to “stay in place” (or snaps can be easily removed). Reem Acra’s “Celebration” is simply spectacular. One of my favorite parts of the dress is the beading and embroidery work that begins tucked close to the waiste and the flows to border the entire train.
It is a beautiful dress, but I’d rather another bride enjoy such an incredible dress than have the dress move with me for a lifetime.
I am currently in the Chicago area, but am moving in less than one week. At that time I will be in the Denver area.
