NEW! Sleeveless Ball Gown with Banded Tulle Overlay Style MS251073 3 3
Stunning Wedding Gown My wedding style: vintage, whimsical, outdoors My body: size 8 pants, 5' 3", hourglass shape I cannot praise this dress highly enough; the craftsmanship, the detail, the silhouette, everything is perfect about this dress. I went into the store with an idea of what I was looking for, and this was not even on my radar. When the lady brought it out, I thought "I guess I'll try it on." The moment I pulled it on and zipped it, I knew. I had not seen myself in the mirror, but it felt perfect. When I walked out, my mom and bridesmaid gasped in shocked delight. This was the ONE. I literally twirled around the store--flitting from shoes to veils--anything to let me keep the dress on for a moment longer. When I rang the bell to indicate that I had found "the one", the entire store burst into applause (not just the lady helping me, but EVERYONE in the store). I felt absolutely gorgeous, stunning, and beautiful in this dress. It had everything I wanted. I wanted my shoulders covered as I dislike strapless tops (not because I wanted something "modest" but I did not want to be constantly pulling up the dress, and I've always felt uncomfortable in strapless dresses). I wanted real buttons up the back and lots vintage lace and swiss dots (there's several layers--one layer of lace, a layer of swiss dots, another tulle layer, satin layer, etc); this dress captures all of those things with an ethereal, vintage charm. It truly makes you feel like a princess. I wanted something which emphasized my waist and hourglass figure, and the tiny belt/ribbon around the waist is the perfect touch. Every piece of this dress's design is well thought out and beautifully executed. The dress is comfortable, and the fabric/lace is exquisite. This is something I noticed of all of the Melissa Sweet gowns that I tried on. Even if this is not "your" gown, I would highly recommend her wedding dresses as they are absolutely gorgeous. Also, it has pockets which I didn't notice until I was taking the dress off (after having it on for an hour), but added bonus! Finally, I am pairing mine with a crinoline skirt to give the dress even more fullness and to keep it from getting caught between my legs as well as an unpadded bustier. I am using a pearl studded veil, and I will be switching into a leaf design headband for the reception. I am going to wear small wedges as it is an outdoor wedding. I will need the dress to be shortened which will be a tiny bit complicated due to the varying size and style of lace (which is an amazing detail of the dress). So if you're on the "shorter" side of the spectrum, I would definitely add in that cost. I cannot wait until my wedding day! September 7, 2014
Love Love Love Bought this dress the week it came into the store. The fit is very flattering and the dress is very light in weight. As a plus size bride it gives you the support and coverage with out being totally covered. Our wedding is at a Victorian Inn so the details fit perfectly. Going to pick it up today and can't wait till me wedding to wear it. September 2, 2014
Unexpected! I went dress shopping yesterday and said yes to this one! It is absolutely beautiful! Most of my girlfriends have said that their dresses were so heavy. This one has many layers for the "fluffy" bottom but it is not heavy. Really comfortable and easy to move in as well. I am so happy with my dress and can not wait to wear it in three months!
