I had picked out another dress very similar to this one and really thought it would be the one. The only reason I had the consultant pull this one too, was because it was $50 cheaper than the other one. I liked the first one, but I wasn't completely blown away. When I walked out in this one, my mom was really quiet. I told her, I couldn't believe it, but I thought this one was so much better than the first one. After that, my mom gushed that she was so glad that I liked this one better, because she did too. She just didn't want make me doubt myself if I still preferred the one I came in for.
I really did not think I would like a tulle skirt, but it was really flattering and I didn't feel like it overwhelmed my body. My wedding is a very casual, outdoor, morning wedding and this dress couldn't be more perfect. I'm wearing a pair of apple green, open toe Nina pumps, and I may try one of the other bride's ideas of adding a matching sash (although it is absolutely perfect without it).
If you are looking for something simple, yet elegant and feminine, do not overlook this dress! And don't be deceived by the price. My fiance told me he'd buy me any dress I wanted, but I wouldn't trade this dress for the most expensive dress in the store!

Love this Dress
I knew I wanted tea-length, but was having trouble finding a gown that still felt bridal. This was the 3rd tea-length gown I tried on, and I knew it was my gown before I even saw myself in it! I love the simplicity and elegance. I'm quite busty (32FF), but this dress fits perfectly without drawing attention upward. I think the pleating detail is much prettier than it seems in the picture. I love the skirt and couldn't stop twisting back and forth to make it swish around. I plan on wearing a slip underneath to give it a little more poof. Yellow heels and a short veil complete the look.

Nice neckline and cute cut, but do beware of how awful the bottom can look if your calves aren't sticks... I'm a size 8-10, 5'5 and it wasn't the most flattering of skirt lengths.

This dress is gorgeous, It's simple yet so elegant. I feel like a princess with the tulle bottom but it's such a simple dress. Recommend it and David's Bridal to anyone and everyone!!!!
