  • THE STORY

    I first tried on the dress at Carine’s Bridal Atelier in Washington D.C. during a Berta Trunk Show. I absolutely fell in love with the lace, beading, and train. It was at the top of my budget so I continued to shop but couldn’t find a dress that was as stunning as this one. It is style 15-110. I did some online research and realized that Nordstrom sells Berta dresses, but not at the location close to Virginia. I worked with a wedding stylist at the Nordstrom in Seattle to order the dress to be shipped to get points for my purchase. I wore the dress once for the ceremony and 1 hour of the reception before changing into a 2nd dress.

  • ALTERATIONS

    The dress is a Berta Size 40 which is a 6. I am a size 2-4 in street clothes. The original measurements of the size 40 Berta before alterations were Chest 36.2 in Waist 27.5 in Hips 37.7 in. I had the dress hemmed and adjusted to my measurements which are Bust 34.5 Waist 27.25 Hip 37. I am 5'5" and wore heels that were 3 3/4". I had the alterations done by the Nordstrom Bridal Alterations in Washington D.C.. I had the straps shortened and the bodice adjusted. The back of the dress where the zipper is located, I didn't love that you could see the nude zipper fabric through the illusion sheer nude mesh-like fabric so I had the seamstress take the extra appliqué from the fabric cut from the hem and sew it to cover the portion of the zipper that was exposed. The pieces of appliqué attach over the closed zipper with clear snaps. I had an over bustle created for each of the 2 layers because the weight of the dress was too heavy for a one layer bustle.

  • PRESERVATION

    The dress has not yet been professionally cleaned. I am in the process of finding a reliable cleaner that can handle the intricate lace and beading. If you are interested in purchasing the dress before I have a chance to have it cleaned, I will provide a discount for the cost to have it cleaned.
