This dress couldn’t have been more perfect – it is too beautiful to sit in my closet forever. I purchased the dress from Demetrios in Tampa, FL – I put it on and never tried on another dress! I had a destination Mexico wedding, on the beach (see pictures) as well as to the reception. The dress is not heavy at all, which was important to me so it was perfect for dancing the night away. The 100% Swarovski crystal belt is attached but can be taken off (selling for $300, retail price $700)) if you’re not interested in purchasing as well. A line style, Ivory French lace over a nude-champagne sheath underlay. Swarovski crystals throughout lace. Zip back with cosmetic buttons makes the dress easy to get in and out of but keeps the look classic. Alterations: I had the neckline altered into more of a sweetheart shape (tailored by Demetrios). The dress was shortened so I could wear flats, I am 5'9, 120 lbs - see picture for length) - This was tailored by a woman in Fort Lauderdale, Alterations by Anna; she did a wonderful job. She also changed it to a scalloped neckline to match the lace throughout the dress.
