  • THE STORY

    This style of dress was the second dress that I tried on when I got married 8 years ago and I immediately loved it! I had always said that I wanted a red wedding dress or a dress with red accents and when the time came, this was exactly what I had in mind. The local boutique I found it at only had in stock a size 8 and offered to alter it down for me (to a size 4!) for $500 (including the dress price). The deep red strip goes all the way around the bodice and there was no way they would have been able to take in a dress to half the size. I was working in Wichita at the time and a co-worker recommended a boutique there (since I was new to the city) and I went to check it out. The lady who worked there was willing to order the style in for me (unlike the local boutique who didn’t want to order that same style in in a smaller size). She just looked and estimated my size (without measuring!) and ordered it for me. It was perfect!! The size 4 she order fit perfect through the bodice and the dress only needed to be hemmed up. And it was even cheaper than the one from the local boutique!

    It comes with a white satin sash with red details at both ends and a matching dainty purse. I am also including a custom-made shoulder-length veil designed to compliment the bead work of the dress.

  • ALTERATIONS

    The dress was hemmed up about 4 inches if I remember correctly. I am 5'2" and I wore heels that made me 3 inches taller. We did add a running stitch around the top of the bodice on the inside in order to pull it just a bit tighter to make me more comfortable about the dress not falling down. (It would not have -- I did not have a lot of experience wearing strapless dress, and I wanted to be sure it didn't. It definitely helped with my piece of mind so I could focus on other things that day!) The veil has some small places where the beadwork will need to be reattached to the netting/tulle fabric, but is not difficult. I also noticed a small, light stain on the sash that is about the size of apple seed.

  • PRESERVATION

    The dress was immediate dry cleaned and stored in a bridal keepsake box when we went on our honeymoon. It has not been opened until today (1/17/15). I'm only selling it because I no longer have the space to keep it. It's still as beautiful as I remembered being it on my wedding day. Eight years and four kids later, some things never change. :)
