Originally bought for £1,500.
This beautiful, vintage style dress is perfect for a rustic, romantic wedding.
The one shoulder ivory gown has a satin bodice with delicate floral embroidered lace over the top. It shimmers beautifully when light catches the crystal beading. The ruched satin cumberbund chinches you in at the waist and creates a gorgeous silhouette.
The original corset fastening has been upgraded and replaced with a zip and delicate crystal buttons to add detail to the back of the dress. I also had the neckline changed to a more flattering sweetheart style. It has a 'puddle' train and the bottom is beautifully scalloped.
I am including a separate tulle underskirt which I wore to give the dress a fuller appearance at the bottom.
The dress was a UK size 10 but was taken in. I am 5'6'' and wore 2.5 inch heels. My bust size was 32C and I had a bit of space to have some 'bump pads' sewn in to lift my bust!
The dress was professionally cleaned after the wedding and the tag is still in place.
