We had a casual wedding at a beach house, but I wanted a real wedding dress. I also love pink, so this dress was perfect! It would be appropriate for a casual wedding like mine or a more formal wedding as well. It is ivory organza that has a pink ombre effect at the bottom. There are layers of fabric (see pictures) that begin to fade to blush pink around the knee to the ground. It is very subtle, but very unique. I wore a solid sash during the ceremony (not included) and an embellished sash for the reception (included!). The embellished sash is ivory and has silver and blush pink beading from the front to the knot in back. Because of the ombre, the dress should not be hemmed significantly (you would lose some of the pink at the bottom). I bought a few pairs of shoes at different heights to try on with the dress to find the perfect height. I am about 5’4″/5’5″ and wore close to 5″ wedges with the dress. Depending on your shoe preferences, there is some flexibility in height despite the hem limitations.
