David's Bridal Galant Style S8551 Ivory Wedding Dress
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.
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).
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.
