I never felt like a bride until... I never envisioned my wedding dress resembling a princess-taffeta-gown. I wanted something simple, classic, and flattering. This dress is beautiful, simple, flattering, and made me feel like a bride. I was initially intimidated by a strapless dress because I didn't want to be tugging on my gown all day, but it held up just fine. The sizing was very approximate, as well. With the two-tier pearl accented veil, it is the perfect combination. The gown is light, doesn't have a cumbersome train, and is tremendously flattering on my hour glass figure (although the fantastic corset they give you to try on gowns certainly helps!). I didn't need any alterations; one can even get away without getting a bustle added because the train isn't too long. Also, it is EXTREMELY reasonably priced considering its detail! I love this dress and I cannot wait for it to arrive. January 12, 2011
Beautiful I wasn't planning on buying at DB but I love this dress and couldn't pass it up! The lace and light beading is so delicate and will add an airy sophistication to my late spring wedding. I only wish it came in a size 0. If you want a simple but beautiful look that will allow YOU to stand out then this would be a perfect dress. Try it on! Trust me! January 11, 2011
Beautiful Dress This is a beautiful gown- the pictures simply do not do it justice. I purchased this gown for my wedding coming up in April. It is to be a simple affair with just my fiance and I eloping at Niagara Falls. The lace and beadwork is very intricate - which the photograph does nothing to depict. It was fairly true to size and my dress doesn't require any alteration other than having the hem taken up - I am 5'3" (which surprised me because I am rather small-breasted and usually require alterations in that area as well). That being said - the fabric is very light and airy, but it will show every bulge and wrinkle... I am not heavy but I'm having to be very careful and work out extra hard to avoid having it look like I have a belly. I love my dress and it is one of those timeless pieces that I can envision my daughter one day wearing on her special day. January 9, 2011
Love It I absolutely fell in love with this dress. The picture really does not do it justice. Even when I saw it on the hanger I wasn't too impressed. When I tried it on I knew my search had ended. It falls beautifully and was by far the most comfortable dress I tried on. I got mine in the Ivory and it doesn't even look Ivory unless right next to a white dress. Also, the dress is pretty true to size. The only alterations I need are for the dress to be shortened. If you're looking for a simple, yet elegant look I say at least try this one on!
