Galia Lahav Loretta Wedding Dress
This is the amazing Galia Lahav 'Loretta' gown.
I purchased this gown from The White Dress in Corona Del Mar and it is absolutely beautiful!
Our ceremony started at 5pm and I was dressed by 2pm for pictures. I was in the dress for about 11 hours. My ceremony and reception were also at the same place so I was not in and out of the car too many times.
There were no stains anywhere on the dress or even anywhere noticable on the skirt. There were only 'drag stains' on the bottom, inside layer of the train. So I took it to the well known couture cleaners 'Margaret's' and paid about $1000 to have it cleaned. Since the train was long it did get stepped on a couple times causing a few small tears in the inner layers of the tulle. The skirt is very full and has MULTIPLE layers so even though the tears were not noticible I still ordered the original tulle that was used on the Loretta from Galia and had those pieces replaced. As a bride, I understand the importance of wanting everything perfect! :)
After taxes, alterations and cleaning I have paid close to $16,000 total.
This dress originally came in a blush but I had it customized in an ivory (no blush twill or lining, all ivory). I shortened the train a bit. It is still very dramatic but just a more doable. It can also bustle. (The picture of me dancing with my father shows the train bustled). I also requested for extra Swarovski crystals to be added to the bodice of the dress (normally an extra fee for this). Where the bodice and front of the skirt meet, I had them angle the front joint line to a 'V' instead of going straight across (similar to the Odette gown). This flows so much nicer and does not cut off the body line. Much more flattering. The skirt can also be bustled (you can see what it looks like bustled in the picture where I am dancing with my dad).
Dry-cleaned and kept in garment bag.
