  • THE STORY

    “For the truly romantic, this Catherine Deane original will take your breath away. Voluminous layers of ivory tulle veiling waft over soft oyster silk charmeuse for a full skirt. At the bodice, embroidered roses climb across a tulle trellis that frames the neckline.” –BHLDN

    I got married in this dress in May of 2015. I had a very simple immediate family only wedding and didn’t even think I would get a wedding dress. Then I saw this one and was totally obsessed. I almost ordered it without even trying it on because it can take so long to get an appointment at the Chicago BHLDN store, but I was nervous and managed to get in on someone else’s cancellation. I tried on a bunch of other beautiful dresses, but this one was so perfect. It’s flattering and romantic unique. Everyone that saw pictures or saw it in person was totally effusive with their praise. I was truly in love with this dress. I was really tempted to keep it, but in the end, I would much rather someone else enjoy it than having it sit around in my closet. Especially since BHLDN no longer sells the dress!

    The details on the from, back, and sides of the dress are all beautiful. The material is gorgeous, it’s silky on the inside and flowing on the outside. The color, which they call “champagne” is so beautiful and flattering. As a practical matter the dress is super comfortable. It was light and easy to move around in. It sits high enough on the waist and flares out enough that it feel at all tight or restrictive.

  • ALTERATIONS

    Breast cups were sewn in, but could be removed. The shoulders were taken in very very slightly, but no other alterations for fit were necessary. For reference, I am a 34B and the top fit me (without a bra) perfectly. The tulle train was removed and the hem was shortened. I am 5'10" and wore the dress with flats. I removed the removable spaghetti straps, but I have them. I kept the extra tulle and silk lining. I considered using it the tulle to have a hairpiece made or making the silk into a ribbon to wrap my bouquet with, but ultimately I did neither and I still have all the material.

  • PRESERVATION

    The dress was professionally inspected and dry cleaned. It will be stored and sent in the original BHLDN garment bag and with the original wooden BHLDN hanger. I inspected it for stains and damage and found none. When I dropped it off, the dry cleaner was amazed that it was so clean. He said he couldn't believe I had worn it for a wedding.
