  • THE STORY

    I fell in love with this dress immediately. Unfortunately, the $5500 price tag was way out of my price range. Then, ducking into a bridal shop with an unexpected sample sale, I found it as a floor sample. I bought it off the rack without a seconds hesitation.
    The dress was a huge hit at the wedding. Comfortable, elegant, vintage yet modern, exquisite detail…I got compliments on it all day and night long. I felt phenomenal. My only regret was having to take it off that night.
    That said, this dress has flaws. It is not for the perfectionist bride. From it’s days as a sample, some of the embroidery was unraveling. I simply had these bits professionally removed and no one knew the difference. There are some small tears in the lace. Some of the beadwork is missing.
    For me, I was willing to overlook all it’s imperfections. Because the dress has such a vintage feel, the slightly used condition did not concern me.
    I am selling this dress, very cheap, as is. I got so much joy out of wearing it my wedding day that I would like to pass that along to someone else. You must know that it is not, by any means, in perfect shape. You need to be the type of bride that is willing to roll with that.

  • ALTERATIONS

    The label size is 10. I generally wear a size 4 dress and had it professionally altered to fit me. I am 5'7" 130ish pounds and, as you can see from the photos, it fit me like a glove. I tend to be smaller on the top and a little larger on the bottom. I had cups put in the top to fit a size 34B bra. I did not have the hem altered at all and it fit me perfectly in flats. I also wore the veil and flower several different ways. For the ceremony I wore the veil in my hair (professionally attached to a comb) and the flower in the back. Then, for the reception, I wore the flower in my hair (just w a bobby pin) and wore the veil as a train (there are two small hooks on the back where it can be attached). The flower and veil come with it, of course.

  • PRESERVATION

    The dress was professionally cleaned before my wedding. It has not been cleaned since the wedding (but has been hanging in its original bag since then). It needs to be cleaned before your wedding. The train is dirty from taking pictures outside. There was some dancing that took place in the evening (enough said). Truly, this is a gorgeous gown that I absolutely loved getting married in. If you are interested in it, let me know and I can send you some more info or pictures.
