  • THE STORY

    This magical Monique Lhuillier Valentina gown made me feel like an ethereal goddess on my wedding day in 2015. I wanted a dress that I could move freely in and not worry about dragging a long train, and this was perfect. Because there is an illusion neckline, I didn’t have to fuss with constantly pulling up a strapless dress! You can wear virtually any undergarments, as the dress simply zips up the back.

    This design was part of the Fall 2014 collection and was featured in the 2014 campaign. The undermost layer is silk with a layer of delicate chantilly lace throughout the bodice and train. The top layer is an intricate, hand-sewn pattern of white beading with trellis embroidery. It gives the gown amazing texture and depth and made me fall in love with the gown.

  • ALTERATIONS

    The label size is 12, with standard Monique Lhuillier measurements of Bust 39", Waist 30.5, and Hips 41.5. Alterations were done on-site by the expert seamstresses at the Monique Lhuillier Bridal Salon in New York. The waist/rib area was taken in, and then hemline was picked up in the front. I am 5'3" and wore 4" heels. The back of the hemline was left untouched to keep the train. Some soft boning was added to the bust area so the dress can be worn without a bra. Ties were added for french bustling of the train - they were not used.

  • PRESERVATION

    Preservation was completed at J. Scheer & Co., Monique Lhuillier's cleaning and preservation specialist. The gown underwent a thorough 3-month hand-cleaning and preservation process. Any imperfections were fixed and the dress is like new again. It is stored in an acid-free preservation box. Included in the sale is an archival-quality preservation Box and white gloves from J. Scheer & Co. My Headpiece is upon request. I had a corset custom-altered to follow the line of the dress, but ended up wearing spanx and no bra. It is size 34D, new with tags ($140), and can be included with the dress.
