  • THE STORY

    I bought my dress and Mecklenburg Bridal Gallery in Charlotte, NC. My husband and I had a romantic and simple indoor wedding, and I really wanted a romantic dress to go with our style. I didn’t want a mainstream cheap looking dress, but didn’t want to pay $5k for one either. I searched for a while before I tried on the Blue Bird Dress, and decided it was perfect the moment I tried it on. Ivory and very pale pink, the dress is made of silk, cotton, canvas and polyester. The fabric is beautiful and falls elegantly to the floor, and has just the right amount of flow. I love that it’s not just one material and has the perfect amount of lace if you’re not looking for a full lace gown… the sweetheart neckline and slight dip in the back also won me over. The size was way big for me, but the seamstress at the boutique said it wasn’t a problem since she had 25 yrs experience altering bridal gowns… and she was right! When she was done with the alterations it looked like it was first made in that size (We also removed the straps since I wanted a strapless dress). It’s very comfortable, you could spend all day in this dress and not feel restricted. However, I did not spend all day in this dress. The total time I wore it was five hours (I didn’t have any bridal portraits done, so that was just the amount of time it took to take pictures of me and my husband and the bridal party before the wedding… and the actual wedding.) The wear on the dress is pretty nonexistent except around the hem of the skirts which is inevitable when your walking on floors and sidewalks, there are absolutely no grass or grease stains on this dress, and only a bit of wrinkling from storage… which a steam cleaning will take care of :) For exact measurements…
    51″ top of side seams to bottom of the hem ( I am 5’4″ and wore 4 3/4″ heels)
    68″ back to train (back has a dip)
    35″ bust – this was kinda big on me, but I just wore a strapless slightly padded bra and was fine
    26 1/2″ waist
    hip size is a little forgiving since it starts to get flowy, but my hip size is 35″ and it fit great!
