Worn once for a very romantic wedding in September. Wanted sexy but yet with good coverage on top as I am full busted and didnt want any embarrassing moments. The bead work is embroided with Gold and Champagne and clear beads. Very classy dress ...my most favorite part was the pleated bustline. It was a very attractive gown. I am a mature bride and this dress worked very well, very flattering. I am 5'10 . I also have a pair of open toe shoes that match the pleated bust perfectly in ivory. They are size ten. Can provide a picture upon request. I will gift those to the next bride who wears this gown.
Also please know this is a very well loved memory of mine. Our marriage is strong and we are so happy. So it won't be a bad omen but rather a wonderfully blessed dress for you to wear. My daughters are much smaller than I am and this cannot be used in the family. Otherwise I wouldn't hestitate to keep it! And by the way....many happy wishes to you and your future husband I pray you are as happy as we are!
