Love the Dress I loved my dress. I knew I was going to buy it before I had even tried on any other dresses - I saw it while at a relative's fitting. However, I will say, you may need to make some alterations to this for it to fit you perfectly if you're not skinny and straight. My wedding was a small-ish (about 80 guests) destination wedding at a winery in Sonoma, California outdoors in July. After reading the past reviews and trying to guess what alterations other people did, I will share my fixes. Keep in mind that I am short, curvy and also shortwaisted (135 lbs, 34D, 5'5''). - Had lace straps moved down so they didn't cut so far under my arms. The seamstress cut the lace "straps" at the bottom, and re-attached further down the back of the dress. This helped elongate my torso. - Purchased the trumpet slip for extra flare, however this slip comes up too high. I had the waistband of the slip cut off so it wouldn't show in the back. This also allowed me to wear some Spanx :) - The sash just seems cheap and there was no way for me to fix it. I played around with several options but ultimately ended up cutting it off and going with a thicker sash to offset my curves. - Reinforced the buttons on the nape of the neck. - Added bra cups (I also wore a stick-on bra for support). - Added a one-point bustle for reception. Overall, I am thrilled with my dress. It looked great in person and photographs, and allowed me to move around without feeling constricted. Perfect for a summer outdoor wedding! February 22, 2012
This is It!!! <3 This is my dress! I tried on several other dresses, all of them different styles. I almost went with a bug puffy VW dress that everyone loved on me, too, but something just wasn't right about it. When I saw this in the catalogue, I knew I had to try it on. The keyhole back is simply gorgeous. The sleeves add a timeless elegance. While the lace doesn't go all the way down the train, which would be my preference, adding a floor length veil with lace trim all around will do the trick! I'm 5'4, 110 pounds, and lacking in the chest department LOL. I will need to get cups built in the gown for extra oomph, and I will get a different sash (I didn't really like the one it comes with). This gown has a very vintage-y feel, and so perfect for my garden wedding. Very light, and so easy to move in it! The lace is very elegant, romantic, and subtle, and best of all, it doesn't scratch.

dream dress! from the first time I ever started looking at dresses after being engaged I knew this was my dream dress! Not too poofy, NOT strapless, and very vintage. I loved everything about it. When I went to go try on dresses, I tried on this one first. I absolutely loved it and so did everyone else. Wanting to be sure, I tried on about 5 more and although one other came pretty close, I didn't get that feeling or reaction from everyone else like I did with this one. I'm 5'2" and pretty curvy. I need absolutely no alterations done unless I want bra cups put it. I just picked up my dress yesterday and tried it on again at home. I AM SO EXCITED TO WEAR IT ON MY WEDDING DAY! February 13, 2012
Awesome Dress! I loved this dress when I tried it on! It was SO lightweight and comfortable it was AWESOME! The only thing I didn't like was the keyhole back, but that probably could've been fixed. February 9, 2012
