  • THE STORY

    I like to describe it as elegant with a touch of whimsy.

    I bought this dress at Privee Bride in Ghent (Norfolk, VA). I was planning on having my dress made and was out with a friend trying dresses on to see what I liked – I was not looking for THE DRESS. I almost didn’t try this dress on because the pattern on the bottom seemed too bold to me, and I don’t normally like anything floral, but I was surprised to discover upon trying it on that it didn’t look “floral” at all. The bottom half of the dress is so graceful and gorgeous. I fell in love with it. I loved the silhouette it created. I loved the beading. I loved where it fell at my waist, and that it didn’t make me feel fat.

    I called my sister and asked her what I should do. I loved this dress, but it was a total departure from my original plan. “Is it light weight?” she asked. “Is it comfortable to sit in?” Yes! Yes! “Well, what do you think?” I couldn’t have been more happy with this dress. The pictures turned out great.

  • ALTERATIONS

    The bottom has been hemmed. A 5 point French bustle was professionally added to the back - usually French bustles are 3 point, but I decided on 5 for a little extra lift in the back to protect the skirt while dancing. One of the ties broke, but because it had extra ties anyway, I got through the whole reception without it being a problem. It would be easy enough to replace if that is what you want. Here is an example of a French bustle (the first bustle on this page): http://thegildedthimble.com/bustles/ I did add straps for my own comfort level. They would be easy to remove without damaging the dress if you would prefer to have it strapless . The dress was also taken in especially in the bust - it could be let out again (I would say at least an inch) if desired.

  • PRESERVATION

    As soon as the wedding went over, it went straight into the full length garment bag it came with, and it has been hanging, in the bag, on my closet door ever since. I will have it appropriately dry cleaned right before it is shipped to the new owner.
