  • THE STORY

    Two days after my engagement and my birthday my roommate made and appointment for me at the Gown Gallery in downtown Kansas City, Missouri, which is the store I dreamt about purchasing my dress from. I saw the dress in the window, and thought that is beautiful, but not what I had in mind originally. I tried on multiple dresses, but then I was like, ” What about that dress in the window?” The lady told me they just got the dress in and that it was a Spring 2014 dress. I tried it on and could not stop smiling. The color of the dress looked great with my pale skin color, which was important because I can’t tan, and made my blue eyes stand out. I felt beautiful and loved the unique color, exquisite beading, and the upper bodice detailing. I had my wedding in the beautiful outdoors of the northwest and I knew the soft undertones of pale blue would look ethereal like the title of the gown color, Ivory cloud. Every white dress I tried on after this gown just didn’t make me feel as beautiful as this dress did, so I knew no other dress would suffice, so I bought it that day!

    If you don’t want the same lace, or mermaid dress that everyone else is wearing this dress is for you!

  • ALTERATIONS

    Breast cups were added to the dress. The hem on the bottom was taken up. My measurements: Height- 5'5 1/2" ; Bust 32-33.5" (32A Bra);Waist- 28.5"; Hips- 39" The bustle was added for the chapel length train, and looks incredible, along with a lace piece to cover the zipper. There are a few small holes in the tulle that occurred because of the outdoor ceremony and reception, but you have to look hard to find them because of the amount of tulle. I can email photos of the small faults by request.

  • PRESERVATION

    Due to the different materials of the dress, it had to be hand-washed/ receive special treatment. I took it to the best dry-cleaner in town just to take care of some of the dust on the inside of the underskirt. I did wear the dress at the outdoor wedding and reception, but there weren't any smells or dramatic staining.
