  • THE STORY

    I always thought I would buy my wedding dress at a small boutique, which is where I spent the first six months looking after I got engaged. But though I came close a few times, nothing I found felt quite right. I sought something traditional and classic, yet chic and alluring. When I hadn’t had any luck by Christmas, and my mother wanted to join me for a dress shopping trip, I decided it might be worth giving Kleinfeld (of “Say Yes to the Dress” fame) a shot. I went in determined not to buy anything, but from the moment my saleswoman Camille brought this gown in, I knew I was finished. The dress is a light ivory lace ball gown. It had every detail I sought: perfect light sleeves for fall and a conservative Catholic church; a V-neck to accentuate square shoulders and a narrow waist, a la Kate Middleton’s wedding dress; a keyhole back, with buttons all the way down to the hem; a cathedral-length train; chantilly lace with alencon detailing to give it more texture and a slightly less stuffy feel; an understated belt at the natural waist that made me feel like Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn; and an A-line ball-gown shape (when else are you going to wear something full and floor-length?). I wore this for photos in Central Park on a beautiful fall day, down the aisle, and dancing all night at the Central Park Boathouse until I made my way back to the Plaza hotel that evening. It gave me a magical night, and I’m sure it will do the same for you! Many, many more photos available upon request.

  • ALTERATIONS

    The dress was taken in over the course of fittings. Given my size at the time of the wedding, I probably should have ordered a 6 rather than an 8. The length was taken up to accommodate my height (about 5'8" in the shoes I wore that day; I am 5'6" flat-footed). In terms of dimensions, all that matters are arms, bust, and waist; the dress gives way to a full skirt so fuller hips needn't worry. My bust is about 36" and waist is about 25". Following my wedding, I had the designer's studio reconfigure the button loops with elastic, as the original button loops were not elasticized and were quite challenging to get over the buttons.

  • PRESERVATION

    The dress has undergone full professional cleaning by Kleinfeld and repair (sewing some buttons back on) by the designer. It is stored in its professional cleaning box.
