  • THE STORY

    I purchased this gorgeous Eden dress by Jenny Packham for my October 2014 wedding at Mark Ingram in New York City. We were married in an old converted brass foundry in Brooklyn, and a more conventional dress simply would have felt out of place. The dress consists of a silk sheath and a cap sleeved beaded overlay.

    I immediately fell in love with this dress. I struggled with wedding dress shopping because everything made me feel so unlike myself – uncomfortable and confined by the overabundance of fabric. But the Eden, so delicate and elegant, stood out with its intricate detail and soft flowing shape the moment I saw it. I received so many compliments on the dress – people simply hadn’t seen anything like it before. Also, several people commented on how relaxed and comfortable I looked wearing it – I didn’t spend any time readjusting or pulling it up, I was able to use the restroom without assistance, and I danced all night long without worrying that people would step all over a bustle or long train.

    Our wedding had a rather bohemian chic vibe, but this dress is so exquisite it could work in any setting.

  • ALTERATIONS

    The dress is a UK 8, which corresponds to a US 4. However, I generally wear a size O or 2. I am 5' 3 1/2", have a 32" bust, and 36" hips. The dress was shortened to accommodate my height with 3 1/2" heels, and as you can see in the pictures, just grazed the floor. Other than shortening the hem, the only other alteration made was the addition of an elastic waistband to accentuate the dresses' beautiful blouson effect. I have all of the extra material that was removed, as well as the extra bead bag which came with the dress.

  • PRESERVATION

    The sheath was professionally dry cleaned, although it was in perfect condition post-wedding. Both pieces are hanging in the original garment bag in my apartment.
