Peony

Label Size: 6 Street Size: 2

I absolutely adore the Peony dress. It was the perfect dress for my mid-summer Napa Valley wedding. After trying on more than 40 dresses, I put on the Peony and immediately knew it was the one. What is wonderful about the Peony is its versatility. It would be just as perfect for a romantic beach wedding as it would be for one in an elegant city ballroom. The dress is absolutely timeless, and will not look dated in photos in 20 years. The fabric is stunning. It is the lightest silk jacquard (almost like a chiffon) with a beautiful, delicate rose pattern that can only be seen up-close. The fabric was very breathable, even on a 95 degree day, like it was the day of the wedding. Despite the delicate fabric, the dress still feels substantial and sturdy, yet light at the same time. I was definitely able to move in it on the dance floor. Overall, the Peony is simply the perfect wedding dress. If I was doing it all over again, I would absolutely choose the same one! I simply loved it, and I know you will too!!

  • Alterations: There were four rounds of alterations, all performed at the Monique L'Huillier store on Beverly Hills. The alterations team there is top-notch, so the dress was altered perfectly to fit my body. It started out as a size 6, but they took it in a substantial amount, and I would say it is probably a size 2. I am 5'9 and was wearing 3 inch heels, so it is altered and bustled for 6 feet. The photos show the size the best, and you can see the dress both bustled and un-bustled. The only defect with the dress is that the top of five layers of bustles came out during dancing. This will be an extremely easy fix, as the bustle was created using hooks and pearl buttons. All that would need to be done would be one stitch on each of the hooks. I have not had this fixed, as I assume the woman who purchases the dress will need to have the bustle altered to her exact height. Other than that, the dress is in perfect condition. Nothing was spilled on it at the wedding.
