The designer is Madi Lane from Australia. I fell in love with the dress because of the beautiful lace detailing. I was planning a summer wedding so I wanted a fabric that wasn't too heavy. It has a cathedral train which can be buttoned up after the ceremony- or you can choose to tailor it and remove the long train if that isn't your style. The veil in the picture has lovely beading along the edge and is included with the dress. It was never worn! We called off the wedding a few months before hand so the dress has been in its bag since I purchased it.
