Elegant and Stunning I had been in love with a couture gown that had similar lace cap sleeves and a keyhole back, but was so far outside my actual budget as to reside in fantasyland. I purchased a very simple, very inexpensive gown and settled into planning the rest of my wedding. With a little more than four weeks to go I stumbled across this gown on David's Bridal website and was overcome with delight. I knew I had to try it on, eventhough I didn't believe a dress could "make" me feel more like a bride, this one did. The consultants have been wonderful to work with, even making certain I had the chance to try on the gown without an appointment, and I am certain the alterations department will be just as professional. The store had to order a size 4 in ivory and it arrived last week. This Saturday is my fitting and, since I am 5'4", the hemline will require significant shortening but that will also shorten the train, which I want. This is not my first wedding and I am a slightly older bride so I wanted a dress that fit my theme (1920s-40s), was sophisticated, not a ballgown, and was reasonably priced. This gown fit my requirements and exceeded them. I cannot wait to wear this gown to the wedding, marry the man I love, and celebrate at our reception! September 16, 2010
Beautiful! I wore this dress for my outdoor wedding in June in the midwest. I am 5'0", so I ordered a 0 petite, but it was still way too long and the chest area was huge on it. It worked out fine with some alterations, though. I had the sash made into a bow for the back and cut off most of the train since we would be on the grass. I got so many compliments on it! I felt so beautiful. I did not wear a slip under the dress and was very comfortable in it. September 11, 2010
Beautiful Gown I went to DB after being highly dissapointed at an upper class salon. I didn't expect to find anything, but then I tried this gown on and it was everything I was looking for. Classy, elegant, unique, antique, one of a kind, beautiful and stunning! I received hundreds of compliments, and am still receiving them on how beautiful my dress was and how I looked in it. I wore a birdcage veil from DB and a floral hairpiece that I made, and it all tied together beautifully. It fit perfectly with our theme and idea for what we wanted our wedding to be: memorable. I know that I'll look back at my pictures years down the road and be just as happy then as I was wearing it. September 3, 2010
EXQUISITE! This dress is simply AMAZING! I received countless compliments on it and I felt absolutely stunning in this dress on my wedding day! I wore a full slip with it during my beach ceremony and on the following day for my Trash the Dress photo session I took the slip off for more of a "beachy" feel. This dress is divine! Since we did the Trash the Dress session my mom came up with the fabulous idea of turning it into a cocktail dress and I plan on wearing it every year on our anniversary! Brilliant idea! I never would have tried this dress on, but the consultant pulled it for me and I thought what the heck and from that moment on I was in love with it! My mom also sewed bra cups in the top because the way it's made you cannot wear a bra, you can get these at any craft store for around 10.00 and they can be hand sewn in very easily in a matter of minutes.
