I am a practical gal and always said that I would not spend alot of money on my wedding dress. Well that all went out the window when I saw and tried on this dress. I didn’t care how much the dress costs, I needed to have it and I got it! I loved my wedding dress and loved the way I looked and felt in it the day of my wedding. So you’re probably asking, well why am I looking to sell it? The reason is that can’t fathom thinking that it will sit in a box forever or until I think that I may use it for my daughter’s Christening outfit or that she’ll want to wear it for her wedding…and who’s to say that I don’t end up having all boys? So as my husband and I start our family nearly a year later I have come to the decision to sell the dress and hopefully make another girl look and feel as gorgeous as I felt the day of my wedding. I received so many compliments on my dress and I can ensure you will too!
The dress is by Christos from their Fall 2013 collection and is one of their signature styles. It is a slim light ivory French Alencon lace gown has a sheath silhouette, sleeveless with bateau neckline, V-back and tulle watteau train. I had my seamstress make the beautiful tulle train detachable and added little loops which allowed me to bustle it. The dress is in ivory as pictured on the Christos website, http://christosbridal.com/bridal/#eve
- Alterations: I am a street size 6-8 so I obviously had to have the dress altered to fit this "real" size and fit my body perfectly. I am 5'9" so I ordered the dress with extra legnth. I had slight alterations to the bottom but not much as I still wore 3"-3.5" heels and wanted the bottom of the dress to skim the floor. There is no damage to the dress, not even the bottom. However, there are a couple of tiny holes towards the end of the tulle train because it would get caught on the concrete. Please note that I am a very particular and anal person and take care of everything I own. So for the most part I was always holding the train as I walked but for photos I had to let it drop and it would get stuck a little on the concrete (sorry it was unavoidable). These tiny holes are not noticeable and probably can easily be fixed by a seamstress.
