I searched and searched for my perfect dress. Something classic with a taste of bohemian. I wanted to feel a little more casual and comfortable while still being beautiful and glamourous. My dress searched ended when I found the designer, Grace Loves Lace out of Australia. The Ariel dress has a beautiful lace top with capped lace sleeves an elastic waistline (allowing you to show off your waist while still being able to breathe on your wedding day) and a chiffon skirt with a built in lace slip underneath. I loved my dress so much that I kept it on throughout every part of the day; ceremony, dinner and a cupcake reception. I styled the dress with an embellished belt from Anthropologie. I loved that this dress was actually comfortable while being breathtaking at the same time. For me, it offered an alternative dress option without being too far out there that I would look back with regret. I loved the Ariel Dress from Grace Loves Lace. graceloveslace.com.au for more pictures and details.

- Preservation Method: After the wedding, the dress was professionally preserved and cleaned. The hem looks the same as the day I brought it home with me. The only discoloration that remains is a slightly purple dot the size of a pin prick. My bouquet had garnet flowers and one touched my dress during the photos. I have provided a photo of this from a step away where it is unseen and up close within two inches so that you can see the discoloration. Otherwise the dress is in perfect condition!
