I gained some weight and my original dress would not fit. 2 weeks before my wedding I decided that I needed a new one. I had looked at other places but did not find anything that I liked in my price range. I tried this one on in the store and loved it. I was able to purchase it that day. The fit is slimming and flattering. I was worried abut it being strapless, but I had no problems with it on my big day. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

Perfect for outdoor pics
I wore a longer ballgown for my ceremony, but wanted industrial style photos. This dress was perfect. High quality. True to size. Could not be happier:)

Best dress EVER!
DB was my first and final stop in the quest to find my perfect dress. I was looking for a 50s-style tea length dress, and DB had 3 for me to try on. The first was pretty but just wasn't the one. The second was also pretty and very detailed, but felt SO heavy and scratchy, I felt overwhelmed by it. This was the third dress and it was THE ONE! It's so light, soft and feels wonderful. The details are so soft and pretty, and the pictures here don't do it justice. We're having a small San Francisco city hall wedding with a 50s theme, this dress is absolutely perfect. I will have to get the dress altered a bit to make it fit perfectly, but I am overjoyed with this dress! And, it's only $200!
(Please ignore the fact that I'm wearing socks in the picture!)

We had an incredibly fun, low-key, late September wedding in my mother's garden, with the reception at a local green space and fire hall. We had yard games, picnic blankets/baskets, BBQ picnic food, and (because it was midday) plenty of sunshine! This dress couldn't have been more ideal. It showed of my shoes (I went with royal blue peep-toe pumps, similar to those in the one Galina ad), hugged my waist nicely, and (even though it was strapless) stayed up without having to be fussed with throughout the day. I did purchase a bustle to go underneath, and the dress looked even better with the added oomph. I couldn't recommend this dress enough to anyone having a spring/summer/fall wedding!
