Final Sale

Alvina Valenta 9256 Wedding Dress

This is an original Jim Helm Alvina Valenta 9256 dress that I purchased from Mon Amie bridal in California. I wore this gorgeous dress for my wedding in Sept 2013. The back is stunning and romantic and looks great in pictures. I got a lot of compliments on it. Color: Ivory lace over white silk satin creates a bone color. Trumpet silhouette with an inverted center back skirt pleat. Ivory Alencon lace bodice with V neck front and back. Thin satin ribbon at the natural waist. Buttons go down the back. It's missing one button.

Dress Alterations

I worked with the original designer and added lace to the bottom of the dress as well. Hollow to hem: Hollow to hem: 55.5 inches long from the top strap to the bottom of the front. The back is longer. I am 5'2 and I wore a 4 inch heel and the dress was still a little long. Bustle and cups added.

Dry Cleaning/Preservation

The dress was dry cleaned.
