  • THE STORY

    I bought this dress at Bridal Exclusives in Portland, Oregon in spring of 2015 for my June 2015 wedding. I love the sheer back and the gorgeous lace detailing- it lacks the “eyelash” edges a lot of lace has. Additionally, the light gold underlay with the ivory overlay was perfect for our outdoor wedding, with the colors standing up to the photography well. The salon ladies told me pure white washes out badly in natural light, and my photographer agreed when I asked him! It really warmed my skin tone and brought out gold undertones, without having an “antiqued” look. I also love the true buttons on the back.

    This dress was bought in a size 8, but was taken in at the waist and hips to a size 6 or smaller. I wear size 0 or 2 pants, but have an ample booty, so it was altered to accommodate. However, the gown line doesn’t hug the whole but in a mermaid style, so it would likely fit a smaller derrière well. I had the gown shortened slightly, and wore flats, but I am 5’9″, so most women would find this plenty long with heels!

    I did have internal cups and a bustle added to this gown. I believe the bustle is a triple traditional, in a descending design. I’ll attach a picture of the dress bustled so you can see what I mean.

  • ALTERATIONS

    This dress was bought in a size 8, but was taken in at the waist and hips to a size 6 or smaller. I wear size 0 or 2 pants, but have an ample booty, so it was altered to accommodate. However, the gown line doesn't hug the whole but in a mermaid style, so it would likely fit a smaller derrière well. I had the gown shortened slightly, and wore flats, but I am 5'9", so most women would find this plenty long with heels! Measurements taken for fitting: B 35.5", W 26.5", H 38". I did have built in cups and a bustle added to this gown. There are 6 bustle points, and it looks like a traditional style descending bustle. It was taken in some at the waist- see above for measurements. Zero damage to this gown. While the wedding was outdoors, it was on a smooth patio in my parent's back yard. No staining, dirt, anything.

  • PRESERVATION

    The dress was cleaned and preserved by Wedding Gown Preservation Co. and is packed in a 100 year guarantee storage box. The box has not been opened. It was a $149 preservation cost.
