My husband and I had a very short engagement, so it was a rush to find the dress I loved. After looking at several local boutiques, I found this one. It was beautiful but simple, which is the way I like all things in life to be. I wore it the whole day of the wedding – photos, ceremony, and reception. It was an easy and comfortable dress for the day…no tugging, tripping, or discomfort. It photographed gorgeously and made me look just like I wanted to for my wedding day. It has a medium-length train that is easily bustled. The color is listed as off-white, but there’s not much “off” to it – It’s definitely not cream-colored. You will receive the garment bag and extra bag of beading that came with the dress. Our home is smoke-free and pet-free.

  • Alterations: I am 5'3" and wore 1" heels with the dress, so the hem was shortened a little to accommodate me. I weigh 105 lbs and have more of a skinny boyish figure, to give you an idea of how this fits. My bra size is 36A, so it was taken in slightly around the bust area and cups were added inside the dress to fill it out a bit and add support. The support was wonderful because it meant I didn't have to wear a bra or struggle with annoying undergarments the whole day. There was no tugging to keep the dress up. (Extra beading that came in a little bag with the dress is included. None of it was used in alterations.)
  • Preservation Method: It has been in its original garment bag in my closet since the wedding. Looks just as it did on the wedding day. Buyer will want to have it cleaned, just because it was worn, although I was very careful with the dress all day long. There is no damage. There are a few little specks of dirt along the very bottom of the hem. Nothing noticeable unless you are specifically looking /very/ closely around the hem. The specks are certainly something that a cleaner could remove.
