  • THE STORY

    I went extraordinarily over budget to buy this dress. After 3 appointments and a BHLDN dress in the mail that didn’t work out, I was stuck. Then I found Claire Pettibone. I went to the store not knowing the price range of these dresses (oops). I tried on 7 and loved every single one — sometimes you just find the designer that works for you. I narrowed it down to my favorite — the Genevieve. I couldn’t bring myself to spend 5x my dress budget, so I left the store. It was a sad day. 3 months later I was still thinking about the dress, so I decided to nix floral all together (we were getting married outdoors so I figured we could let nature do its thing). We also cut some corners by trading with some vendors. In the end, I got it. It was the biggest splurge of the entire event — and it was SO worth it. Everyone said they had never seen a dress quite like this. It is romantic, dreamy, delicate, ornate but somehow still subdued. And — SO COMFORTABLE. Which was important to me on my wedding. There is no boning and the lining is silk. It feels like a nightgown. It was great for dancing and photographed so beautifully.

  • ALTERATIONS

    There were alterations to the dress -- all of which were on the top half. The waist and breast-area were taken in. I've got a big butt and a small chest. In fact, if you are over a B cup I think don't think the dress would work for you the way it has been cut. There is also an extra lace lining on the neckline that I added for a little more coverage. That can be removed if you're into more of a plunging neckline. The other alteration that was done was to add some details that secured the sleeves, which could be worn more off the shoulder, but I wanted them to sit as cap sleeves.

  • PRESERVATION

    Our wedding was outside so the bottom of the dress did get dusty. However, the dress was deep-cleaned the week after (for a few hundred dollars) and it looks good as new. It has been stored in a covering hanging in my closet since mid October.
