  • THE STORY

    Finding this dress became the second part of my love story. My husband I had moved to the US from Canada in 2013 for grad school amidst the sudden and heartbreaking diagnosis that his mother had advanced cancer. We got engaged that Christmas; sadly my dear mother in law passed away in March 2014. It was hard planning a wedding without her. That fall, my own mother came to visit and we went dress shopping. I was discouraged frustrated that I wasn’t finding anything, but my mother was just the best. She kept me laughing throughout it all. After I had tried on all the dresses in my price-range at a local boutique, she came into the changing room with the Jenny Packham Tilly dress I hadn’t dared look twice at since I knew it was way out of our budget. My mother insisted I try is on…. and it was magic. My mum had found the dress, generously helped two graduate students afford it and made me feel like I was the most beautiful woman on my wedding day. But something else also happened when I put on that dress…I felt the warmth of my mother in law…it felt like something she would have worn. So I had them both: my mum and mother in law embracing me on my wedding day.

    This is just my dress story. I think it carries some kind of magic in it’s delicate pearl and crystal beading and etherial fabric. Maybe it’s just in my head… but I know for certain it now carries a lot of love. It’s time for someone else to enjoy this special dress as much as I did.

  • ALTERATIONS

    Very minor alternations were made: -hemmed to my height: 5'5" -a bustle was created with numbered ties on the inside of the dress -a modesty panel was created for the bust area using surplus fabric and beading (available for addition fee); can be easily removed *N.B.: Label size is 16 UK, so 12 US

  • PRESERVATION

    The dress is in near perfect condition. No spills, rips or snags occurred while it was worn. Only minor discolouration at the bottom hem. The dress was expertly dry-cleaned in Montreal, Qc Canada.
