Don’t want to wear all white? Neither did I!
I partnered up with designer Edgardo Bonilla to find the perfect dress for a playful, adventurous and elegant bride. I was thrilled to wear this positively perfect blushing bride’s gown.
This elegant yet simple strapless box pleat ball gown is remarkably distinct because of the stunning blush detail on the bodice and gorgeous bow train. The elegant and supportive corset bodice, secured with a zipper, is embelished with thirty white tuxedo buttons.
Decidedly lightweight and comfortable, my wedding was an elegant affair at the beach and this dress bridged the gap between a traditional wedding style and a bride with a little mischief in her eyes.
In meticulous condition, professionally cleaned and sealed the day after my wedding in 2005, this timeless dress seems to be quite a bit like that worn by a certain bride who inspired someone to Bring Sexy Back.
It was an honor to wear this gown and there is no sense in keeping it locked away. I’d love to share it with you.
The dress originally was designed with a small train built into the gown, but I chose to have the train removed and a bustle created for the bow. I wore a cathedral length blush veil.The bow can be extended to a full train or remained bustled for the event. It took weight off the dress and gave it a beautiful bell shape perfect for dancing. The side seams were taken in a bit and the bust was let out a little, but overall the dress remains a perfect size six! My measurements on wedding day were 36 X 27 X 44
VEIL / HEADPIECE DESCRIPTION
A simple, very subtle blush veil complimented the tones of color in the gown. This full length veil that was secured by a wreath of roses and floated down the aisle. For the reception, we bustled the veil. It would look lovely secured with a jeweled comb or just a simple flower. While I paid $300 for the veil, it is included in the price of the gown.
The dress was professionally cleaned and stored immediately following the wedding in a Wedding Keepsake box. This gown has been kept in a cool, dry, all cedar closet until today when I looked to be certain it is still in pristine condition. It is!
