I just picked up this strapless silk 2be gown over the weekend for my destination wedding. I love the simplicity of it. (and was out to avoid any bedazzling or lace! ) Any issues with getting it altered? I’m planning to have it altered to remove the train and hope that it lays well.. I also wish it had a lace-up back instead of buttons for a more snug fit. After altering the top, are you happy with the fit?

Did you get the same dress as me? Really? because that would be really cool 🙂
I havent had it altered yet (my seamstress told me to wait until closer to the wedding to ensure a “perfect fit”) But from what she told me the dress is made VERY WELL, and there shouldnt be any issues altering it up or down.
I was going to alter mine to remove the train as well, but my seamstress did a quick mock up of a french bustle, and it looks stunning with the pleats in the back.
I love my dress. The silk feels so amazingly rich, and I’ve yet to see another bride with anything even similar.. The ONLY snag I ran into was that it is “natural” colored silk. So Ivory is too yellow and white is too white for a veil.
I’ve since decided I dont really want a veil anyway so that problem was solved.

Does anyone have 2be style # 233780? I might be getting the dress but I think the dress looks way nicer in person?

@Jenny8283…I tried on that dress that you have pictured when I was at Kleinfeld’s! It was gorgeous!

Does anyone know the wait for a 2BE dress to come in? I feel like all the salespeople who use “it takes time to order” as a scare tactic to purchase the dress on the spot.

I am a 2be bride, too! Totally fell in love, but I had never heard of the designer before and was a little skeptical but loved it SO much that I bought it right off the rack. It is real satin… gorgeous beading… love!

I ordered my dress in March and it came in in July. So about 5 months or so. Quite awhile!

I have been trying to find ANYone who has even HEARD of 2be dresses…Mostly I just get Salons saying “Oh…thats Mon Cheri dresses”
No no…it’s really not a Mon Cheri dress…
Every Salon I’ve been to has told me that while they admire the dress I’ve chosen, no they don’t have it in stock and while they would be happy to order it, no there aren’t any refunds.
