Alvina Valenta Couture collection wedding gown style 9658.
Creme silk duchess satin fluted bridal gown. Strapless pleated V-neckline with empire waist and flower detail. Ivory Alencon Lace peeks out neckline and hem, sweep train.
The dress is absolutely gorgeous and unique. I fell in love with the dress and knew it had to be my wedding dress. It was a very popular style and is no longer AVAILABLE to purchase by the designer but you can get it right here
I purchased a brand new sample at the time since I thought I wouldn't have time to wait for my size to be ordered. The size of the sample was a size 10, way too big for me but I knew it would be altered so it didn't matter.The size tag is not in the dress. The dress was PURCHASED from bridal REFLECTIONS in Carle Place, Long Island. What I had done to the dress, well, I had crinoline put in at the bottom of the dress to fill it out and give it a trumpet style rather than a mermaid, I also had a brooch with rhinestones and pearls put in the center of the flower, cups sewn in to give a bigger bust, I think a size b-c and the dress is fully altered to fit a bridal size 2.The dress also has pick-ups to bustle the bottom of the dress. flaws: I recently inspected the dress and found some dirt marks at the bottom (pretty light) and found a stain underneath the dress not visible from the outside and a few holes (2 I noticed) in the lace on the train portion of the dress (unless looking for them you can't see them).Also, found 1 button missing from the back of the dress. The dress has not been cleaned so there are some makeup marks on the INSIDE at top. I am including the veil which was custom made with alencon lace trim w/ scattered Swarovski crystals on top of the lace. It is a fingertip veil with a detachable blusher. The dress is creme w/ ivory alencon lace. The veil is ivory.
I wear sizes xs, 0 & sometimes a 2 in a dress - Size 25 jeans or 0 - 32B bra.
Perfect for any bride-to-be that wants a romantic elegant look with a bit of vintage flare.
