I wore this stunning, lovely Vera Wang Aurora dress to my October Manhattan wedding. It is made of beautiful, butter soft metallic Silk Duchesse ivory satin. It has an empire waist with modified A-Line silhouette. There is a zipper closure with a gray and ivory belt at the back. It has a chapel train with a French bustle. The neckline is sweetheart, strapless and shimmering with a gorgeous floating crystal garland. Staining under armholes (did not come out with cleaning), and a few minor flaws on outside of fabric of dress; they are very minor. The dress feels structured yet flowy at the same time. It is timeless, unique and I know you will love it as much as I did! I received so many compliments throughout the evening. The best part is that is is very comfortable--I was able to dance and move freely. I hated taking it off at the end of the evening! The dress was professionally cleaned and preserved by the experts at Emily Grace Wedding Gown Preservation. Please email me with additional questions! You will LOVE this dress.
