I bought this dress at a reputable bridal store in Appleton, WI (The Bridal Event) in May 2013 for my January 2014 wedding. The dress is gorgeous – romantic, feminine, and beautiful. It was perfect for our traditional wedding and comfortable too! I love everything about it – it was the perfect dress for me. I especially love the sash, which was subtle and yet added some glam and matched the bridesmaids’ blush dresses perfectly. It was worn from approximately 12pm on our wedding day until 11pm. That was all! While it is hard to sell your dream dress, I’m happy to because it’s in perfect condition – no stains or tears and still has so much life left in it! It is perfect for a feminine woman that wants to look elegant…the only thing my husband could say over and over was “Wow. Just wow.” I wore it for the ceremony and reception, as well as for pictures – some were taken outside, but not many because it was cold!

The dress came with a white sash, but I replaced it with a custom blush sash with silver/diamond beading (see photos). My cup size is C and cups are sewn into the gown. This dress was professionally altered at the Bridal Event. A french bustle was added (see photo) for when the train is not wanted, but the train is gorgeous. My height is 5'3" and I wore 3.5 in heels on the day of the wedding.
