  • 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 for safe keeping. It has been hanging on my closet door ever since.
