Timeless and Romantic A-Line Wedding Dress
I wanted a wedding dress that would be light, comfortable, breathable, and timeless with a touch of lace for my originally planned tropical beachfront wedding. I was also looking for a dress that wouldn't wrinkle as easily to bring to my destination. This dress checked all those boxes.
Why I Love This Dress: The pleated silk tulle is incredibly light, soft, and airy. The A-line skirt is flattering because it is free-flowing and drapes from the waist down, which gives the wearer an elongated look. It cinches at the waist and has gorgeous lace detailing and buttons on the back. I loved that even though the back was exposed it wasn't completely bare, which I found in many wedding dresses.
Alterations I've Made: The original dress had a V-neckline with lace detailing in the center - I wanted a more modest look so I had the middle sewn together by a seamstress. Since the original size of the dress didn't fit me, I also had the waist area brought in. For reference, I generally wear a U.S. size 4 and 6. The bottom of the dress has been hemmed and there is no train. For reference, I am 5' 6" and wore 2.5 in. heels. The altered hem was long enough to gently skim the ground.
Other Details: The dress came with a matching belt, but I ended up using another belt with more shine to it. I still have the original belt, which will be included with the dress.
From the designer: Exuding timeless style and grace, the Fantasia gown is a statement of gathered soft silk tulle, draped from the bodice to the skirt that is elegantly cinched in at the waist to form a flattering yet free-flowing silhouette. Delicate sheer lace adorns the open-back and sleeve of the Fantasia gown, giving 360° glamour to the gown's everlasting bohemian beauty.
