I ordered Annabelle in ivory for my wedding dress, which I wanted to be simple, comfortable, and reasonably priced for my outdoor ceremony. I confess to leaving dress shopping until the last minuteâ??three months outâ??because I donâ??t like to shop. Not smart! In my time crunch, I decided this dress would be â??fine' and that's all it was. The tulle felt cheap and was gathered awkwardly on the bodice; the underskirt bunched and was see-through; and the built-in bra cups were visible through the fabric. I felt the dress only looked good on me from far away and if you blinked quickly. After my final fitting and with two weeks to spare, I bought a new dress from a retailer with an online bridal line whose name I wonâ??t mention (which thankfully needed very minor alterations). In the end, I paid more for a better-quality, beautiful dress that I felt lovely in. Sadly, it was too late to return Annabelle for a refund so she was donated to charity. For reference, I am 5â??10â?? and size 10-12.

The Annabelle dress was the last dress I tried on during my BHLDN fitting. This dress wasn't even on my list of dresses I wanted to try on but I am so glad I did. It's the perfect dress for a beach wedding or any wedding!
When I first tried on the dress, it was completely sheer. The Annabelle dress has only one layer of satin material and one layer of tulle over the top so my undergarments were clearly visible. My stylist added the Lazio skirt over the dress which eliminated the sheerness and added a very flowy, romantic look to the ensemble. I paired the Annabelle dress and the Lazio skirt with the Halle sash in silver to complete my look. It ended up being perfect especially because of the price!
Since I am on the shorter side, I was able to alter the back tulle panels of the Lazio skirt to make a train which I bustled at the end of the night. Having the extra length on my skirt allowed for some very beautiful photos of my dress flowing in the wind. I was also able to transform the Annabelle dress to a different look for our reception since it can be transformed 14 different ways! Overall, I was very pleased with all of the items I purchased to create my wedding gown. I felt absolutely stunning!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Small fit,
I ordered the dress one size bigger than the dress size I normally use and it was way small, I couldn't close by about 4 inches.
The fabric looks very cheap and poorly made.
Didn't like it at all :(
I've returned the item.

These dresses were spot on perfect. All the girls loved their dress and said how comfortable they were and they each wore the sash the way they wanted, I liked that they had options. They all danced the night away in them!!
