  • THE STORY

    I’ve never felt more beautiful than in this dress. It was not the style I expected to purchase for my wedding (I’d assumed something more fitted and lace), but it was the very first dress I tried on at Lovely Bride in Georgetown, and no other dress ever compared! I went to probably 3 other appointments (mostly because I am indecisive) before ultimately coming back to this beauty <3 It is so romantic and whimsical yet still modern, and despite being a ball gown it stops just short of full-blown Disney princess – a balance I found perfect for my wedding! Plus the dress is surprisingly light and comfortable given the overall volume.

    When I purchased the dress, I was a street size 4, 5'6" tall and 140 pound lean/athletic build with a 34C bra size. The store ordered a size 10 and it fit perfect when it came in! – the sales associate was actually shocked how well it fit and amazed at how much money I was going to save because almost no alterations would be needed. ….And then we found out I was PREGNANT!! (see alterations notes below)…

  • ALTERATIONS

    Alterations were made to the dress to accommodate my 5 month pregnant body; however, I had NOT yet "popped", so the alterations twere because of the 10-12 pounds I had gained since purchasing the dress, but were not so drastic as to impact the overall appearance or fit of the dress. The upper portion of the zipper in the back was replaced with a small corset to comfortably allow for my expansion - and it gives any future wearer A LOT of flexibility with the fit (i.e. may not require expensive alterations since the corset can be tightened or loosened as needed). Other than the replacement of the zipper with the corset, there were NO OTHER alterations made to let-out the dress. There were some minor alterations made to the chest (I was a 34C when purchased and a 34D at the wedding. The bottom was hemmed a little - I am 5'6" and wore 4" wedges. I swapped the heels for flats at the reception and still had no problem dancing!. Added BONUS - my alterations team are miracle workers and were able to bustle the train (after I'd been told it couldn't be done) and it still looked great bustled!

  • PRESERVATION

    The dress has no visible stains from wearing for my ceremony and reception. The wedding was just a week ago, and I do intend to have the dress cleaned. If contacted before I have it cleaned, we can discuss a potential reduction in the price given how expensive professional cleaning can be. Also, a few of the loops for the top layer of the bustle need to be fixed (super easy, just a little thread - my Mom actually mended one the morning of the wedding).
