Oscar de la Renta - Strapless silk chiffon mermaid wedding dress with a ruched sweetheart bodice and a silk organza and tulle piped ruffle skirt.
This is a stunning, hand-stitched work of couture at its finest by Oscar De La Renta. It was procured from Oscar de la Renta NYC. Other than fittings, it was worn for a 10-hour stretch of pictures and the main event, an indoor hotel wedding at the NYC St. Regis. The effect was jaw-dropping and glamorous while at the same time elegant and timeless in its appeal. You will love how you feel and project in this dress.
Alterations included the back being taken in (as I lost weight approaching the wedding), and the ruffled skirt was taken up about two inches so that it is a ~5'9 all-in height (I am just under 5'5 plus my heel height measures were 100mm/3.9 inches with a 10mm/0.39 inch platform); also, an American bustle was sewn in. A few pieces of the tulle accents in the ruffled skirt came off during the hora (Jewish wedding dance) but the effect is not noticeable. The dress was professionally cleaned immediately after the wedding by NYC couture cleaner Jeeves.
