Carolina Herrera Aurora Wedding Dress
This breathtaking dress was purchased in Carolina Herrera's New York City boutique in 2014. I fell in love with it because of it's classic silhouette with a totally couture flair. I wanted to feel like a classic bride, but I also wanted a dress that reflected my love of high fashion and felt really unique. To me this dress felt like something no one had seen before, not another standard wedding dress, and I really loved that about it. My wedding was an outdoor black tie affair in Napa Valley, so I wanted a dress that captured that elegance and glamour, but also didn't feel out of place being outside. This dress in the sunset is incredible. The hand-painted gold leaf catches the light, and I truly felt like I was just glowing. While it's a big ballgown, it's not heavy at all, and the layers of tulle feel light and fluffy. It was important to me to have a dress I could dance the night away in, and I certainly could in this. You have absolutely no restriction of movement in this dress. I also loved the way it twirled on the dance floor. This is truly a statement making dress for a total fashionista bride.
The dress was purchased in a size 6, but was taken in significantly. I am 5'2'' without shoes and weigh 107lbs. I have a B-C chest, although the bust definitely has room for a good C cup. I wear a size 25 or 26 jean, and the waist of the dress was taken in to be fairly corseted to accentuate the smallest part of my waist, but is still very comfortable. The dress was hemmed for 5'' heels. In addition to the sizing alterations, I had the back of the dress dropped a bit to create a flattering v-shape in the back, rather than be straight across right below your shoulder blades as the dress was originally designed. I also had the belt it came with removed in favor of a custom tulle belt made from the tulle taken off the bottom when they hemmed the dress. The belt is sewn on, but any seamstress would be able to take it off and add whatever belt you want if you don't like it, I for one love the soft tulle belt - it gives you a great waist with interrupting the line of the dress.
The dress was professionally cleaned by a wedding gown cleaner referred by Carolina Herrera following the wedding and has been stored in a smoke and pet free environment in my parents house since the wedding.
