WHY SHE LOVED IT: The combination of the sexy elements (backless, hip-hugging) and romantic vibe (beautiful lace and long train) made it a perfect fit for me, and for our farm venue.
HOW DID SHE FEEL: I felt beautiful and bridal. It was quite sexy on its own, and I felt elegant when I paired it with a very long veil and my grandmother's vintage fur coat. Physically, it is quite fitted but the liner material is SO stretchy that it is very comfortable. I danced the entire night, and never had to adjust or fix anything with my dress!
DEAR FUTURE BRIDE: I hope that you love this dress just as much as I did! I will never forget the love my husband gave me when he first turned around on our wedding day. I can't wait for another bride to get to use this special dress.
