  • THE STORY

    Very much like the groom, I didn’t know at first glance that this dress would be The One. I thought I’d find me a big billowing ballgown, which in retrospect would have been totally wrong for my petite body type, but at the consultant’s recommendation I tried this dress on and it stole my heart (again, the story of finding the groom was very similar). So this dress has a deep sweetheart neckline, straps that can be spread and worn like cap sleeves if you fancy, and a stately column/sheath silhouette. A smoothing bustier underneath made the fit look cleaner on the top than without. I tried it with a volumizing slip/petticoat, but I preferred to let the skirt fall naturally. My size in street clothes was women’s 2 or juniors 3, and in this dress the size 0 fit me like a glove, but I decided to give myself a tiny bit of breathing room and get the 2. I’ve heard other brides complain of their dresses wearing hot and/or heavy, but I experienced neither discomfort to any great degree in this gown, which I wore on my rainy December wedding day in Arizona. The outer chiffon layers move very gracefully, and the liner feels pleasant on the skin. On the whole, it is a little “different”, a little offbeat, but very elegant.

  • ALTERATIONS

    While the groom and I intend to be together forever (so far so good) I bought this dress knowing I'd have to part with it someday, so I tried to keep alterations minimal. That said, my religion has a few modesty guidelines that I had to take into consideration. For this reason, in my wedding pictures and on my wedding day, you'll observe I'm wearing a shrug, and a couple of panels change the depth of the neckline. These "temple-fill" aspects altered the bodice in no permanent way. The only true alterations to this gown was its shortening, where between 6-10 inches of the various layers were trimmed down, and the addition of a low bustle for the small train. I stood about 5'4 in my shoes on my wedding day, and the gown remained perhaps a little longer than needed- I still had to pick it up a little when I walked to keep the front hem out from under my feet.

  • PRESERVATION

    This dress has hung in its garment bag from David's Bridal (which I'll include for you, naturally) in a closet for several years, and upon deciding I need to sell it now to make room for the proverbial baby in the baby carriage, I had it professionally dry-cleaned mid-September 2015. Even before the cleaning, the dress was in nearly immaculate condition- I'm not known for being hard on clothes, especially not clothes as beautiful as this gown. No other measures toward preservation have been taken.
