- Wedding: October 2009
I am still so very much in love with my wedding dress – if I could just keep it to look at it I would, but I know that’s not practical! I went to lots of stores in New York City and tried on tons of gowns, but ended up buying this at David’s Bridal (they don’t make it anymore – so no one else will have your dress!) because it was the only one I found in the shape that I had my heart set on, and knew that my petite frame wouldn’t get lost in (like a big ballgown that my dad loved – sorry dad!). Fortunately, it looks expensive.

The gown skims the body to show off a lovely petite figure, has just the right amount of bling, and then a gorgeous train to give some bridal glamour and drama. I felt like a movie star. I had a french bustle added so I could dance comfortably, yet still maintain the beauty of the dress. It also has minimal cups to help fill out the dress perfectly (I lost weight for the wedding and of course that was the first place I lost it!), but those can be taken out if you prefer. It has a lace-up back, so could fit a range of sizes on the tops. I had it laced as tightly as possible for the day, but you can show off the lacing more if you prefer.
The dress could be paired perfectly with classic jewelry and veil, or really blown out with a vintage headpiece or whatever look you like. I wore purple shoes as my special touch.

It ended up coming in to just under $1,000 with alterations, but I’m parting with it at rack price for you, $500. Includes shipping, or pickup in New York City or Northern New Jersey. Message me with any questions.
