Here's the story of this amazing one-of-a-kind masterpiece: I was determined to have the most unique designer dress I can find. I searched high and low and finally found it. . . in Italy! I was communicating with the designer through phone and emails from October 2010, until it arrived in May 2011. That's right, I did not try on or see the dress until it came to me! She sent me pictures and videos only. She was the sweetest and worked with me personally to create the dress you see in front of you! It was one of her exclusive designs! The top and skirt are made from a light-weight shiny silk and the bodice has beading with Swarovski crystals.Thankfully, there is NO BONING in the bodice, which allowed me to sit very comfortably and move around in the limo and during our first dance. This is an extremely rare opportunity to own a very unique dress. NO OTHER PERSON IN THE WORLD will be seen wearing it. If you buy a designer dress from Pnina Tornai or some other household name designer, you will see that ten other people are selling the same dress on this very site. If you are looking for that "WOW" from your groom and guests, you found your dress! My measurements as given to the designer: Bust: 34 in. Waist: 26.5 in. Hips: 35 in. Height: 5'4 Weight: 120 lbs I've spent hours talking to the designer herself and emailing with her back and forth. I also spent approximately $800 to get it shipped from Italy via UPS with insurance. Finally, I had to pay US customs charges that every importer pays when a product comes into United States. However, all the time and money spent was completely worth it! My husband lit up when he saw me in my dress and just could not stop looking at me =) I hope it brings you as much joy as it brought me! I have MANY MANY MANY more pictures available from every angle. Please email me and I will be happy to email you back with pictures. If you have any questions, also feel free to contact me. The dress comes inside a protective garment bag and on a heavy duty blush pink hanger with the designer's name on the hanger. Very light - only 5 pound package. I was even able to go to the bathroom by myself. :) Thank you for looking!
Alterations/Sizing: The bust is perfect for a 34B bust. The good news is that it was altered by hand from a 36C bust size. All you need is 4 tiny snips with small scissors and the bust area expands up to 36C (or even smaller D). It can easily accommodate any sizes in between. I did not need to wear a bra or sew in any padding, but you can definitely do it if need be.
The back of the dress is not super long, but I still needed it to be picked up during my first dance. That's why I asked to sew in a loop out of one of the flowers on the back right. It also allowed me to carry the back without dragging on the floor when we were walking outside. The loop hides completely inside the flower when not in use. I was able to wear the back of my dress on my wrist or elbow and it was very comfortable.
Veil Description:A very long cathedral veil is included. It is already attached to a comb. No crystals, but very neat and clean. Worn for 1 hour during ceremony only. Will come in a bag and will need to be steamed before use (this costs approximately $15). I will also include a matching ring pillow and it is absolutely beautiful! Has matching flower embellishments as the bodice on the dress.
Professionally dry cleaned at a reputable Fort Lauderdale wedding dress cleaning service provider.
