Rated 5 out of 5 by stacia624 Perfect Dress for Beach Wedding
I purchased this dress for my beach wedding in Hawaii. I wanted something light and flowy but also elegant. I also needed something that would fit into my tight budget. This dress was perfect! It was comfortable and looked so beautiful. I loved the way the chiffon would flow with gentle ocean breeze.

I'm getting married for the first time this summer. This is my fiance's second marriage. My daughter and his 3 daughters will be our bridesmaids. They will be wearing brown dresses with tiny white polka dots and beautiful high heels in a coral shade.
I chose this dress because I wanted something simple, yet beautiful to go with the garden theme of our wedding. We will have a small church ceremony, and our reception will be at our home on our 4 acre property! I felt this dress would be just perfect!
I was reluctant to order the dress online, because I couldn't try it on first, and since I'm not quite as thin as I used to be, I was worried about the size, etc. But I took a chance and I'm very glad I did!
I read thru the reviews and took the advice on the sizing. I normally wear a 10-12 in a dress. My bust measurement is a 40, however, I normally wear a 38B bra. Alot of the reviews said to find your bust size on the chart, then order the next size up. According to the size chart, I was a size 14, but I ordered a size 16, and I'm glad I did!
The dress fits beautifully around the empire waist. As other reviews said, it doesn't have any "give" to it. A size 14 would have been too tight for me, even though that's what my "size" was on the chart.
I don't fill out the bust part of the dress quite as nicely as I had hoped, and the straps aren't quite as snug as I would like, but I think a strapless bra will fix all that! I do love how the straps look, especially in the back....very attractive.
Also, I'm barely 5'4", so the dress is a bit long for me, even with heels on, so I will have it hemmed.
Even though the dress doesn't fit me "perfect" right out of the box, it does fit beautifully where I was the most worried about, at the empire waist. So, even though I will be getting a few alterations done, I am extremely happy with the dress!
I love the flow of the fabric. It is very flattering for my figure. I have a bit of a thick waist, and it makes me look very thin! It just feels wonderful, even before any alterations!
For the price, you can't beat this dress! And, the delivery was great! I ordered it on a Monday morning, and it was delivered on Wednesday morning!
Thank you David's Bridal! You have made my bridal dress shopping experience a very pleasant one! I will send a picture after the wedding! Thanks!!!

I ordered my dress and had it within one week. I had read the reviews to order it a little bigger because the band around the waist. I am glad I read them. I ordered a size bigger and the dress fits PERFECT!! I love it. I'm getting married May 16 2009 and can not wait till everyone can see the dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emma2009 Elegant, Beautiful Fit
I'm surprised that a wedding gown that I ordered online could look SO beautiful! I wear a street size 4 and ordered a size 6 and it fits perfectly. The alterations were a little bit expensive because the dress has three layers of fabric to be hemmed. I'm 5'6 and had about an inch or two hemmed up. I also had the straps tightened a bit at the shoulders. $100 for alterations in PA.
The beauty of the dress really shines when you move, and the dress flows elegantly! Absolutely beautiful and a reasonable price for the dress too!
I didn't pay for rush shipping, and I received the dress within a few business days!
Even though our wedding is formal, this dress will be my "reception dress". It's so comfortable that I know I'll be able to relax, eat and dance at the reception now!
