  • THE STORY

    I bought this dress brand new for $350 from David’s Bridal in 2008 for my wedding in May 2009. It is from the Galant collection and is a fitted straight-across strapless floor-length gown with all-over beaded lace and a short train. I loved this dress, it was comfortable, simple, sophisticated, and timeless. I wore a birdcage veil with it for a vintage look. I had an outdoor evening wedding and reception, and I wore the dress for a total of about 4 hours. Unfortunately, I got divorced this year, so the dress is ready for a new bride.

  • ALTERATIONS

    I had a few customizations added to the original dress: a satin ribbon around the waist with bow and long tails in the back. Ribbon is sewn into the dress by a professional seamstress, and the bow snaps on in back so you can still unzip down the back of the dress. The only other alterations I had done were to take in the bust area a bit, shorten the bottom hem a bit (I wore flats), and added a bustle clip inside the dress so I couple bustle it up for the reception. Since I had an outdoor wedding, there is a little bit of grass / leaves / twigs in the lace along the bottom hem, I picked most of it out, but there are a few tiny stranglers. You can really only see it up close (see detail pic). There is also a bit of makeup residue around the inside top hem of the dress (see detail pic).

  • PRESERVATION

    Since 2009, the dress has hung in my closet in the original David's Bridal bag, not professionally preserved or cleaned, but well taken care of.
