This dress is modern, sexy, romantic. It is also very stunning for pictures in any type of setting. The dress itself was very flattering, only worn once for a few hours, I then changed into a reception dress. The dress is basically brand new. From the designer: A sweetheart neckline mermaid wedding dress crafted in tulle with cascades of beaded floral appliques scattered all over the dress with thin straps. I fell in love with this dress & I hope someone else will love it just as much as I do!
