  • THE STORY

    This dress was the 86th (yes, 86th) dress that I tried on. I had searched high and low and just happened to see it hanging in the bag at Alfred Angelo’s. The specialist told me that it had just come in and wasn’t even on the website yet. I had stumbled upon my dream dress. It has all of the beautiful bead-work and bling that I could ask for and a full enough skirt to not look over whelmed by the detail on the top. I got married outdoors in May 2014 and while the dress was large and in charge, it wasn’t too hot. Also, the petticoat I wore in the photos is included with the sale of the dress.

  • ALTERATIONS

    First off, I had pockets added (to hold tissues, lipstick, water bottle, etc). I'm only 5'1" so the dress was taken up. I had the zipper removed and a lace up back put in. The cups of the bust were reworked (I'm full chested) and the sides were taken in to allow for a better lace up. The seamstress added what she called an "interbelt" which is just some wide elastic around the true waist to help support the body of the dress and to make lacing easier. I had a non traditional bustle added, the chapel train just buttons up along the back of the dress (I wanted a french bustle but was told that I would need more than 20 points in order to accommodate the length and weight of the dress and it would just look too busy).

  • PRESERVATION

    The alterations place that I used did the steaming and cleaning for pictures, the wedding, and the time between the two. I have not had it cleaned post wedding. I did buy a super size storage bag since it is a very full dress (it's pink) and it has been hanging nicely in an extra closet since the wedding. It does need a cleaning; the bottom along the hem (mostly underside), the tips of the laces (those stay hidden anyways), the inside of the top of the corset, and two faint spots on the skirt that look like I brushed into something during the wedding. I still have the extra beads and "straps" included with the dress and receipts for purchase and alterations.
