"A classic wide strap scoop neckline bridal gown in Duchesse Satin with flattering natural waist and princess seams."
Congratulations! Finding a wedding gown can be tough, but this gown is a dream! I have never felt more beautiful than when I wore this wedding gown. I tried on wedding gowns at Oscar de la Renta, Amsale, Bergdorf Goodman, but Monique Lhuillier's Windsor gown was the one!
It was purchased and fitted at Monique's New York flagship store on Madison Avenue. I spent $7,275.00, all in (incl.tax) + several hundred $ post-wedding to clean and preserve it for You! If you want to look both timeless and chic on your wedding day, this is The gown for you!
I have more details about of the gown under "alterations," including videos that I took on how to bustle the dress. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Styling: I had a stylist for my wedding, and we (along with the team at Monique), made a decision to keep the buttons just to the top of back (above the tush!). You can easily remove the buttons without visible marking, or they sell them on have a seamstress add them all the way down to the train.
Steaming: I told myself that I would steam the gown, and sure enough, I ran out of time! If you see a wrinkle in a photo, it's not the gown's fault! ;-). During the preservation process they steamed the dress, and got the wrinkles out.
Bustling: The bustle can be done two ways (over or under), I chose over, but it's up to you. I took several videos on how to bustle the dress with the team at Monique's HQ. I am happy to send you the videos if you purchase the dress. The bustle has color-coordinated threads (not visible to anyone), which makes it much easier to do.
Bust: The boning in the dress, also acts as built-in support, thus making a bra unnecessary. It keeps you Very tucked in. I'm actually large chested, and I didn't move! That said, I personally needed some lift help, so I had pads temporarily installed on the inside, and then had them removed, so the dress would be like brand new for you.
Length: I'm a drop under 5'8, and I wore Loafer Randall's Natalia Pleaded Block Platform, with the front of the dress just grazing the floor.
Cleaning & Preservation: The cleaning and preservation was done with The Knot.com's preservation team in Kentucky, and shipped back to me in Manhattan. I had photos taken during the preservation and cleaning process, so that the new owner could see that they were getting a stunning gown, that was properly* cleaned and restored. I have kept the extra hanging threads, original gown bags, etc. so if you would like them, just let me know.
