A Carol Hannah stunning Silk chiffon based all over sequined corseted trumpet gown with inset crystal belt and dramatic, slinky train. Silk satin face organza removable overskirt. Perfect for ceremony drama and reception.
I wore this dress for 2015 wedding, each dress is hand sewn custom, and there are only 2 others in the US, its truly a unique and amazing dress. I'm a wedding photographer, so I wanted something really dramatic, sexy and something totally different than the typical white dress. It fits incredible and I was so comfortable and happy with this dress. It photographs beautifully and has a removable over-skirt which makes you feel like you have 2 dresses! I absolutely loved being able to switch it up. I wore the over-skirt for the ceremony and some photos but then it just snaps off for the dinner + dancing or for a more sexy look. In person, it is just incredible but also photographs beautifully...which was so important to me.
There are only 2 other dresses like this in the US, so you would truly have a unique and never-seen dress. The beading is incredible, did not snag on anything and actually feels very sturdy. The dress is in perfect condition and looks just as it did before i wore it, i was very careful, but also its a very luxurious and well made dress, so you feel so safe in it.
As i said, I'm a photographer and have several blog posts up on my blog as well as my own photographers, where you can see one million more photos if you're curious.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ANY QUESTIONS!!! I adore this dress and would love for someone else to feel what i felt wearing this dress, its truly magical.
LENGTH: I had the dress altered length wise, i left the back completely original so it was still long, however, its not a super long train, you can see in photos, its a manageable length. I'm 5'4 and wore 3-4 inch heels with the dress, so its altered for that length, however, i also still have all the original material that was hemmed off if you'd like it.
SLIT: Carol Hannah added in a slit for me, because our wedding was in a hot location, but really just because i wanted to show some leg! The designer put it on a seam so its very easy to sew up if you dont want the slit.
OVERSKIRT: this was not altered, but i did have some stronger snap buttons added on under the belt so it was stronger, there was just a metal eyehook and the skirt could easily just slip off the hook, now its much more secure but still hidden.
INNER BELT: My seamstress added in an inside belt to give more stability and hold the dress up well, because i never wanted to be yanking my dress up - which totally did the job, its really secure and wonderful, I'm so glad its in there.
CUPS: I'm a 34C, and did not have any cups added into it internally, i just left it as is and added in the gel cups on the day of that were not attached, but held in nicely because the dress fit well. You could wear it with or without cups depending on your bust or desired cleavage.
