It pains me to put this beautiful gown in the "sale" department.
But, it has minor defects, so I can't sell it as a perfect product.
That said, a bride on a budget can get a great deal!
This lovely, elegant gown is simple and chic, with its trumpet silhouette and ruched bodice. It has slight pulls in the fabric on the seam down the back. I pulled the stock photos, and discovered what happened. It appears someone removed the covered buttons that were on the dress originally. As well as a flower that was on the bodice. You cannot see where the flower was removed, but you can see minor "puckers" where the buttons were removed. I included a couple of pictures so you can determine if it is acceptable to you.
If you are a low-key kinda girl, you could wear it as is. If you are creative, go get some covered buttons and hot glue or sew them back on. Or get really creative and go with a lace or whatever you come up with.
This gown retailed for $1299. It is brand new, without tags. No makeup smudges, no hem on dirt. Makes me want to scream that is was altered! Still a really pretty gown that can save someone a lot of money.
In perfect condition, with retail tags still in tact, this is a beautiful ivory fit and flare. This dress has a built in strapless bra and built in layers of crinoline. (no additional crinoline was used for my pictures, but you can add one for more volume if you desire)
This gown does have some wrinkles, and I gave it a quick steaming for photos, but will need to be steamed (or pressed) again after being shipped.
White strapless A-line with ruched and beaded bodice, lace up corset back, chapel train
This gown is new, with original tags, but I am discounting it because it has a lot of wrinkling and a few dust marks. I have wiped the majority of the dust marks off (they were on creases where the dress was folded for storage) and have also run the steamer over the dress once. If you are a DIY-er, I recommend steaming the whole gown again, and if you come across any other marks, use a damp white washcloth to gently "brush" them off with it - do not rub! Rubbing will cause the fabric to pill. If you are not comfortable doing it yourself, send out for a professional cleaning, Either way - a great deal on a beautiful dress for the budget minded bride!
Ivory fit n flare with exquisitely beaded bodice and chapel train, ruching on midriff, and pick-ups on skirt.
For my photos, I put an A-line crinoline under the dress, and pulled it low on the hips, which is not ideal, but the fit n flare crinoline I had was not working on this dress. You can go without crinoline for a sleeker look, or purchase a fit n flare crinoline from your local bridal store for more volume.
