- Wedding: September 2011
ACTUAL WEDDING DAY PICTURES BELOW! 🙂
Description (from Bridal store) A-line gown with sweetheart neckline and corset closure. The classic styling of this gown fabulously flatters any figure with Bordeaux Taffeta ruched throughout the bodice and pleated throughout the skirt and train. Extraordinary beaded embellishments grace the side hip and sweetheart neckline.
My dress details:
Size: 0 (however I am NOT a size 0, it just worked because of the lace up back. I am more of a 3/4)
Customizations: I had this dress taken in at the hips so that it would be more like a fit and flare/trumpet style…it was an AMAZING idea and I couldn’t have loved the result more! 🙂
The description above does not even begin to describe how beautiful this dress truly is in person…the beading at the neckline and top portion of corset is simply STUNNING and I can’t begin to tell you how many compliments I received!!
My measurements at the time of my wedding were:
I have NOT had the dress cleaned (mainly because I am lazy LOL), but the wedding was held indoors and only taken outside for pictures, so it should be able to be cleaned easily. It is at my mom’s currently, but I can get pictures of any stains/marks if needed.
I paid $1300 for the dress and about $230 for the customizations/alterations (my seamstress said that most of the alterations can be “undone” if necessary as she leaves a good amount of fabric instead of just cutting it off, but I think whoever buys it would definitely agree that it looks wonderful the way it is. I am only asking $750 (plus shipping) OBO for the dress WITHOUT cleaning. If you would like it to be cleaned before it is shipped, I will have to get a quote to have that done, although I REALLY don’t want to deal with it and would prefer to just send it as is. Please let me know if you have ANY ?’s.
