Perfect Dress for Me I only tried on three dresses and I knew this was the perfect one immediately. It just felt comfortable and I still felt like me when I put it on, not someone playing dress-up. I had a destination wedding in the Dominican Republic in July, so it was hot, but I didn't overheat in this dress because it doesn't have a bunch of layers. It's light and also doesn't require a slip. I loved it and I have no regrets. The only advice I would give would be to have a seamstress sew in an extra hook & eye, because mine broke...TWICE!! So I was yanking my dress up most of the night. Luckily the dress has boning in the torso area, so it pretty much stayed up on it's own. :-) August 22, 2013
Beware of alterations- but worth it in the end. At first I bought a completely different dress, but I was unhappy with it(never let people convince you) get what you want, and try different things! So I went back, and fell in love with this one. However, alterations were a nightmare! Bring people with you to see the things you don't, and know who you are dealing with..after finding a better seamstress, it worked out. I was comfy all night running around the woods(no bustle just put the loop on my wrist and it was lovely). I also didn't use a slip, and had cups sewn in. And as a lot have said before, the sash that comes with it folds and lays funny, so I went with a vintage cameo belt. I had many compliments on the dress and was very happy in the end. July 31, 2013
Beach Wedding in Maui I tried this dress and many others on, I wasn't super impressed with this dress at the store, but quite frankly, I wanted a dress, I didn't want to spend a ton of money and I didn't want to shop more than once. So, I purchased this dress along with a very dark plum/purple sash. When the store called me to pick up my dress, I waited to try it on (unitil one week before we were set to fly to Hawaii)... crazy, I know. When I slipped it on, the dress fit like a glove. It hugged my body beautifully. I'm not skinny and I'm not large... I'm a size 10, and this dress perfectly accentuated my figure. When I purchased the dress, I didn't realize it had so much sparkle! Once I stepped foot on the beach for my sunset wedding, the sun caught the dress beautifully and I twinkled :) I don't typically write reviews. I am writing one for this dress because that's how much I loved it! Perfect dress for a beach wedding and I would assume anywhere else! It is light and just simply gorgeous. July 15, 2013
So nice I wore it twice!!! I saw this dress first online. I really liked the photo reviews, because I could see how the style and shape of the dress looked on different body styles. I am 5'2", and some styles truly DO not work with my body/height. I bought the dress on my first visit to any bridal store. I tried on six dresses before this one. I kept looking at it on the hanger, and I felt like I would never get the chance to try it on! As soon as I did, I knew it was the dress for me. We got married on the beach in Maui, and had our reception a week later in Las Vegas. Both events were outside. It was over 115 at 5 p.m. when our reception began. I don't think I could have been able to wear any other dress in that type of weather. I did change into my lace tank and linen shorts halfway through, but at those temperatures, anyone would have. This dress travels well, and it didn't need to be steamed, even after two airplane flights. July 13, 2013
