Other Dennis Basso For Kleinfeld (lotus) Wedding Dress
I always thought I would buy my wedding dress at a small boutique, which is where I spent the first six months looking after I got engaged. But though I came close a few times, nothing I found felt quite right. I sought something traditional and classic, yet chic and alluring. When I hadn't had any luck by Christmas, and my mother wanted to join me for a dress shopping trip, I decided it might be worth giving Kleinfeld (of "Say Yes to the Dress" fame) a shot. I went in determined not to buy anything, but from the moment my saleswoman Camille brought this gown in, I knew I was finished. The dress is a light ivory lace ball gown. It had every detail I sought: perfect light sleeves for fall and a conservative Catholic church; a V-neck to accentuate square shoulders and a narrow waist, a la Kate Middleton's wedding dress; a keyhole back, with buttons all the way down to the hem; a cathedral-length train; chantilly lace with alencon detailing to give it more texture and a slightly less stuffy feel; an understated belt at the natural waist that made me feel like Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn; and an A-line ball-gown shape (when else are you going to wear something full and floor-length?). I wore this for photos in Central Park on a beautiful fall day, down the aisle, and dancing all night at the Central Park Boathouse until I made my way back to the Plaza hotel that evening. It gave me a magical night, and I'm sure it will do the same for you! Many, many more photos available upon request.
The dress was taken in over the course of fittings. Given my size at the time of the wedding, I probably should have ordered a 6 rather than an 8. The length was taken up to accommodate my height (about 5'8" in the shoes I wore that day; I am 5'6" flat-footed). In terms of dimensions, all that matters are arms, bust, and waist; the dress gives way to a full skirt so fuller hips needn't worry. My bust is about 36" and waist is about 25". Following my wedding, I had the designer's studio reconfigure the button loops with elastic, as the original button loops were not elasticized and were quite challenging to get over the buttons.
The dress has undergone full professional cleaning by Kleinfeld and repair (sewing some buttons back on) by the designer. It is stored in its professional cleaning box.
