I absolutely loved wearing this dress on my wedding day in the woods! It is so special and so comfortable. It has a Titanium (subtle purpley grey) underlay which makes it not quite white, which was perfect for me as I didn't want a bright white dress but still wanted to wear white. I highly recommend this dress for the unique/boho bride. It lays close to your body when you stand still so you're not in a giant fru fru dress, but still has amazing twirl potential.Alterations made: The dress has been taken in a bit around the bodice and waist (my size is most accurately between a US 4 and 6). A bustle was also added. The dress was not hemmed. The tailor did skilled, subtle work. Please note: the dress was professionally cleaned by Chicago Wedding Dress Cleaners after being worn.One imperfection: the eye, or thread, part of one of the hooks and eyes on the back on the dress is missing. It came off when my husband lifted me into the air! Easy and inexpensive fix.
