This is a stunning long sleeve lace Berta 14-21 gown that is absolutely perfect for either a spring, fall, or snowy winter wedding like mine!
This gown is romantic, beautiful, feminine, and sexy in equal parts. It was everything I dreamed of in a wedding gown and then some. I tried on SO many dresses and looked for months for the perfect long sleeve, v-neck dress (I thought finding one would be easier since Princess Kate wore one to the royal wedding, but it was actually really hard!). Once I tried on my first Berta gown, I knew I had to be a “Berta bride,” and the second I laid eyes on this gorgeous lace masterpiece, I knew I couldn’t wear anything else to my wedding.
Long lace sleeves.
That keyhole back!
The quality of the various laces and embellishment is exceptional.
The fit is incredible and so flattering. And it didn’t restrict my movement at all!
Super easy to get on and off—just step in, zip up the back, fasten at the neck, and you’re done.
Train bustle that was added is also incredibly easy to use—just loop around the hidden button.
Illusion neckline and built-in cups help hold everything in and shape you beautifully—no bra required.
Fully lined from waist down in a spanx-like material. I did not even need to wear shapewear (though you can).
This dress photographs SO beautifully!! B/w photos pick up the romantic lace detail and are particularly gorgeous.

The following alterations were made (some of which can be undone): 1) The dress length was shortened to be perfect standing at approximately 5’8”. I am 5’4, and was wearing 4 inch heels at the wedding. The train was also shortened to be made proportionate to dress length and less heavy to make our first dance easier. 2) The bust alterations were aesthetic and are not permanent. The ‘alteration’ here involved stitching on extra lace flowers (from same dress fabric) to cover the cups more. A lace insert was also added for modesty where the dress plunges lowest (see pics of my dress v. stock photos). Any of these bust alterations can easily be undone if you prefer! 3) The arm cuff alterations involved bringing in the circumference of the cuffs, which came VERY wide and too bell-like for anyone with normal sized arms to wear. But, the overall sleeve length was not altered in any way. If you want the sleeve cuffs to be more or less bell-like, they can be let out or brought in more. 4) A French/European bustle was added so the train can be shortened if you want to wear the dress during any part of your reception/dancing. It is so easy to handle—just pull up the loop at mid-train and attach it to the hidden button, which has a tiny lace flap cover so you can’t even see it! (See pictures.) Otherwise, no other alterations so the dress fits like the size on the tag (42). You can have additional alterations done to size the dress perfectly to you and style as you see fit!
Gown was professionally dry cleaned by a reputable wedding dress cleaner immediately after my December 2016 wedding, and is ready to be worn!
