I don’t have any pictures of the back of my dress, except for the sample where it was clamped 🙁  Here’s the stock photo of it in a different color.  I didn’t go into dress shopping needing buttons, but I do think it gives such a polished look!

ohh the buttons!! The buttons were one of my major deciding factors to get this dress!! I will be swapping out a few of the buttons with ones from my mom and grandmothers’ wedding dresses as a special little something old 😀

I’ve got a black evening gown with crystal buttons to the hem, it has a functional zipper however. 

My plum evening gown is lace on the entire back and it has functional buttons. 24 of them. The other eight billion are decorative to the hem.

Reception gown will have hidden snaps to wrap under a bit, buttons will all be functional. 

My debutante gowns (my Mom had me do four, ugh) all had very tight functional buttons by Dad’s request. They were damn hard to get off which was the point.

Biggest bit of advice from Mom was to start the flare of the skirt above your butt, then carefully bring the button line around to your hip and side to sit. Which I’ve ignored frequently, but they can be uncomfortable to sit on.

Sorry the stock photo is so huge. My dress is a Lillian West 6315. Lillian West is a private collection by Justin Alexander. I can’t wait for my dress to arrive. The pic of me in the dress isn’t the greatest quality. Everyone else’s dresses are so pretty. Hurray for buttons!

I’ve got buttons the whole way down the back! There is also a little bit of bling in there. Every 3 buttons there is a small crystal flower! The consultant told me this was kind of a signature for Allure.

 

Also, just because I love the job my alterations lady did on the bustle. 🙂
