Strapless Tea-Length Gown with Cap Sleeve Shrug Style 9T9948
I received so many compliments on my dress, I first saw it online and when other options failed I made an appointment to try it on. I knew when I saw it, it would be the one to pick for our special day :) I will never forget how my husband to be said when he saw me enter the church, how beautiful I was in my dress! I am 5'2", so it was just above my ankles, perfect length for me. I also went with the 3 flower sash in champagne, which complimented the dress instead of the plain satin one.

Instant Dream Dress!
I am 5 feet. I thought due to my height that I should check for tea length dresses but was scared the dress would be too short on me which is not something I would want.
When I went in store I wasn't sure about it but I thought I should try it on just to see the length.
When I put it on I was in shock at not only how flattering the dress was but the fact that it was a perfect full length.
It doesn't quite touch the floor, it's at about my ankles. I love that it comes with a shrug, however in my opinion, this shrug should have been a regular short sleeve rather than a cap sleeve since cap sleeves don't flatter everyone. Including myself.
The lace and beading is so intricate and ideal. The color for my dress is ivory and I compared the sash to the color of the dress and to me it looks white instead of ivory.
Not sure if that's what I was supposed to get but I like that they're more contrasting rather than a perfect match.
I just hope that it won't make the dress look too "yellow".
The dress is quite light. Should be great for a warm summer day wedding, can't wait to wear it for my big day! I also do feel like the David's Bridal picture doesn't do the dress justice. This dress is lace and it has small beading here and there.
I'm attaching some close ups of the dress and one picture to show how the sash looks with the dress.
Hope this helps you decide.
I'm happy I said yes to this dress!

Perfect Gown for Me!
I had admired this dress online for a while before being able to try it on and it was so much better in person! I tried on a total of 8 dresses I think and this was the second one I tried on, and I didn't want to take it off. I knew it was the one for me right off the bat. I tried on other dresses to make sure it was exactly what I wanted, but as I was trying other dresses on I just wanted to get back into this one. I purchased the dress a year and a half before m wedding (it was bought at my first ever dress appointment) and over the course of that 1.5 years I gained some weight which I was unable to shed. Due to the weight gain my dress no longer fit and I was devastated! I had planned on adding a corset back in to help with it but the alterations lady actually suggested I call the store I originally bought the dress from and see if I could exchange for a different size. I did and the wonderful ladies at the London, ON store helped me make my wedding dreams come true! I now have a dress that fits absolutely PERFECTLY and I can't wait to get married to the man of my dreams in 10 days!!! Love this dress, would definitely recommend this dress and David's Bridal to anyone looking to find their wedding dress.

I kept trying on mermaid dresses because I wanted to look amazing with something pulling my figure in. I decided to go ahead and try this dress on for the heck of it. It was the fifth dress that I tried on and the only one that my mom and MoH agreed on and made me cry. I just couldn't get emotional or attached to the others. In this dress, I felt like me. Plus, it was really fun to twirl in.
