The Dress

Stunning, bespoke Augusta Jones "Jay" wedding gown with added delicate lace bolero which can be removed. Comes with a separate satin Augusta Jones belt. The best thing about the dress was that I was able to layer a lace bolero over the top for the first part of the day. I wanted to cover my arms, be respectful in the church, and also add some "Irishness" in the form of lace to the entire outfit (I've lived in the US for 9 years now but am originally Irish so got married this summer at home in Wicklow, Ireland).

The bolero was held in place by tiny buttons on the inside of the belt and the bolero itself could be removed later in the evening when I wanted to dance! The belt stayed on. The bolero was designed to show off the collarbones, and was three quarter arm length with beautiful buttons up the back.

Why this dress works brilliantly:
- Accentuates my waist, especially with the satin belt - very flattering
- Allowed me to eat on the day without worrying about how my stomach would look in the dress
- A train just long enough to be romantic but not too long to get caught in things
- A feeling of a true wedding dress - the silk is so soft and the skirt seems to float along the ground

I am a UK size 12, an 8 in the US and the dress fit perfectly. The only alteration to the dress was to shorten the bottom an inch or so, nothing else. I am 5 foot 10 inches and the dress rested on the ground. When I walked, standing up tall, my shoes just peeped out the bottom with each step. I wore completely flat shoes as I didn't need any additional height.

I am a small B cup bra size but there was no need to add cups or wear a bra as the top of the dress has a corset element so when it's tied, the dress sits upon the waist and makes you feel really secure. I never worried about the dress falling down or slipping the entire day (and the wedding day lasted 15 hours!).

There are three tiny hoops that you can tie up under the dress in order to lift the train off the ground for when you are dancing later in the evening.

The dress has been dry cleaned. The silk is marked at the very bottom where it rested on ground and there are some other marks on the outer layer of the silk at the back. I think another dry cleaning could remove and the way the dress falls, they are not obvious. I am very happy to send more close up photographs on request - I want to be completely transparent about the quality of the dress so you are happy when your receive.

All photos are the actual dress either on the day or as it looks right now.

Overall, it was magic to wear and I'd love for someone else to be able to feel as beautiful as I did on their own wedding day!

Alterations

The only alteration to the dress was the length - the dressmaker took off an inch. I am 5 foot 10 inches and you can see from the photographs when I walked standing straight, my shoes just peeped out the bottom. Nothing else was changed

The bolero was altered to fit my size - the dressmaker took in the arms and fitted the waist.
