This gown was an absolute dream--comfortable, unique, and flattering.
It is made of Chantilly Lace with a sweetheart neckline and a slight trumpet skirt with an embroidered tulle overlay.
The bodice and body has intricate white beading.
The custom keyhole straps are detachable (made of tulle, beading and fabric from Monique Lhuillier to match the dress).
There are multiple layers to the dress: tulle underneath, then a layer of lace, then the layers of beading.
It is absolutely stunning in person.
There is no damage to the dress after wear and there are no stains.
This dress with alterations/custom straps was a total of almost $10,000.00, therefore the price reduction reflects a significant decrease in price.
The dress was altered to fit through the waist, hips and the straps were added.
Knowing that we would sell the dress after the wedding, all of the extra material was sewn into the dress to make letting it out as easy and cost effective as possible for the next owner.
Cups were added, but again were made to be easily removable.
The dress has been professionally dry cleaned by a wedding dress specialist immediately after the wedding on August 21, 2015.
Please feel welcome to contact me if you have any questions or would like additional information.
I hope someone has the joy of wearing this beauty soon!
