  • THE STORY

    Say ‘YES!’ to this stunning Alvina Valenta Ivory Silk Organza, A-line Ball Gown, Empire Waist Wedding Dress. This gown is ideal for the bride who wants a touch of modern whimsy on her wedding day. It’s a perfect all-season gown as the fabric paillettes flutter like flower petals in the spring or snowflakes in the winter.

    Strapless Sweetheart Neckline, Fabric Petals and Crystal details throughout the gown add a touch of sparkle, while the organza band at the natural waist highlights your shape. Have you heard the phrase “cinched for the gods?” Your waist never looked so tiny.

    I purchased this gown from The Glamour Closet in West Hollywood, which specializes in designer-only runway samples worn at bridal shows. Let’s just say that the “other” dress was an Oscar de la Renta, but the Alvina Valenta won out in a landslide vote. Once I was zipped in, I fell in love and my bridal party was all gasps and tears! It feels great on; flattering neckline, lightweight, fun, fresh and a beautiful fit!

    The dress is fresh from a specialty bridal gown cleaner (thus bodice stuffed lovingly with tissue paper to maintain shape) after my October wedding and is in spectacular condition! There are very light signs of wear, such as a tiny hole and nearly invisible stain near the hem of the skirt. These were both here prior to my purchase and are barely visible — definitely not deal-breakers.

  • ALTERATIONS

    The dress is the original size (unaltered) in the bodice and a solid true-to-size 2. Alterations as follows: - Hemmed for length (I'm a natural 5'3" and measured 5'6" in my heels for which the dress was altered) - Flowers on the side of bodice removed for a more clean/modern line (were just tacked on and removal caused no damage) - Seamstress added ties to the underside of topskirt and underskirt for over-bustle (saving you hundreds)

  • PRESERVATION

    Professionally dry cleaned by high-end wedding gown specialist. Lovingly stuffed with tissue paper in the bodice to maintain shape. Hanging in dry cleaner's garment bag in well-ventilated closet.
