This is a gorgeous dress with the detail. I didn't like lots of sequins and shiny material. The organza and satin are matte. It is strapless with a capped sleep. I guess you would describe this dress as A-line and/or ballroom. It has a crinoline underneath but i wore a hoop for added fullness.
The detailing on the dress is all around the bodice and edges. On the bottom is the lattice work detail that is continued on the bodice and capped sleeve. The bodice design is of the lattice work and of small flowers. Where the lattice criss crosses and in the centre of the flowers are small pearl like beads that give a hint of shiny but not over the top or distracting. This pattern is repeated at the bottom of the dress and on the capped sleeve. The front of the bodice works down to a V at the waist. Very flattering!
The only alteration done to the dress is the addition of the 3 buttons on the back to do the bustling.
I am 5'11 and wore an inch pump and the dress was just the perfect length.
Veil, headpiece and crinoline not included as i do not have any of them anymore,
I had tried on about 15 dresses at 3 different establishments and when i went to Rainbow bridal and told her what i was looking for, she said I have exactly what you want. this was the first dress she pulled out and i fell in love instantly!
