Pure white Justin Alexander wedding dress style 8477
Bought in Feb 2011 for £1070 from Ava Rose Hamilton in Silsden West Yorkshire (have all receipts pictured) dress was hand made and delivered to the shop in Aug 2011 ready for my big day on 26th May 2012.
I was a size 18 when measured for the dress but had it taken in to a 16 due to loosing weight before the wedding, with the corset back this would fit 14-18 i had about an inch taken off the bottom, I am 5ft 4in and wore 3" heels. All the alterations have been done at Ava Rose by the seemstress.
The dress bodice is covered in delicate flower patterns topped with beads, sequins and dimonties. The 8 layers of tulle skirt has scattered sequins and beads that shimmer with every movement you make. The dress has a chapel train and a button added underneath to make a french bussle if you want the train taken up later in the day. I wore this with a single hoop which is also included in the sale, again only worn once. The dress also has a wrap to go over your shoulders that matches the skirt, again only worn for an hour!!
This truly is a beautiful dress the long bodice is very flattering and hides those lumps and bumps we dont want on our wedding day the wrap covers the top of your arms and gives you a different look. The corset back pulls you in at the right places to give you a wonderful hourglass figure.
The dress hasnt been dry cleaned so as you can expect it has marks underneath from the ground as it trails on the floor but this cannot be seen when wearing the dress. It also has small marks (from where it has rubbed on the skin) on the inside of the bodice under the arms and on the outside of the bodice under the arms (these are very slight), again, once on, these cannot be noticed they only stand out as the dress is pure white. (at the moment I dont have a spare £80-£100 to get the dress dry cleaned as im on smp maternity pay!) this had only been worn once for 10 hours, i just wanted to be as honest as I can these are reflected in the price which is half of what i have paid.
I really want another bride to feel stunning in this dress as i did, its far to pretty to sit in a wardrobe for years.
You are more than welcome to come try the dress on.
