Strapless Tea-Length Gown with Cap Sleeve Shrug Style 9T9948
Worth the alterations!
This dress is more beautiful in person. The pictures simply do not do it justice. That being said, it did need some work to become what I wanted it to be. I had it shortened 6 inches to be tea length (It is longer than I thought from the pictures). I am 5'6" and taking 6 inches off made it mid-calf on me. I also changed the neckline to make it a sweat heart since I felt that was more flattering with my larger bust size. I also removed the zipper in the back and added a corset back. As far as accessorizing, I shorted the back on the shrug that comes with it so you could see the laces on the back of the dress and I changed the neckline of the shrug to make it a little more off the shoulder. I added a pair of wonderful heels and a handmade sash and it was rockin. It is a great dress for the price, but as is I would not have worn it down the aisle. With a few tweaks to make it your own it can be a dream dress.

Perfect Dress for my perfect day
I had been searching for a Vintage Wedding dress for awhile and found this dress online. I was even happier to find out that there was a DB in Mississauga ON so I didn���t have to cross the border and worry about any customs/duties or hassles.
I was married November 9, 2012. I wanted s a dress that was unique and fun that had a bit of sass to it! This dress is FUN! I tried this dress on with a pair of pumps and fell in love.
I bought my dress in Ivory, and had it altered outside of DB. ( I shortened the Crinoline that is built into the dress so that the lace overlay drops over). My shoes were Guava from DB, and were a great hit with the dress. This dress was perfect for me! LOVE LOVE LOVE.. I even brought it to Jamaica on the Honeymoon so we could get some Beach/Sunset pictures!

Perfect for a Fall Wedding
I am getting married October of 2013 and I was really surprised to find the perfect dress so soon. David's Bridal was the 2nd place we looked and this was the 1st dress I tried there. I was nervous about trying on dresses but the lady that helped us was very nice and helpful. This dress is going to be perfect for our 50's style wedding. Its a relief to have found a short wedding dress that will not drag in the dirt since the wedding is going to take place at a State Park. Thank you so much Davids Bridal!
