Ava Maxi Dress
Wore it for my wedding - love!
Wore this to my intimate wedding and it was perfect! A bit larger around the bust/arm area but it still fit great and I got a ton of compliments. The price is amazing considering the cost of some wedding dresses!

Simple. Elegant. Lovely.
This dress is a dream come true. The fabric is light and flowy, the fit very flattering. The sleeves are a bit different than the photo-longer with noticeable ruching-but I liked them a lot.
For girls on the shorter side, a hem might be necessary, depending on the shoes you choose. I ordered a size 2, and at 5'6" I'll need to wear 3-4 inch heels for the length to be right.

I'm a street size 12, but I bought the 14 due to the fit guide's recommendations. I actually would have been fine with the 12, as the 14 is just a bit too big... but in the larger size, the neckline is wider and more drapey (which I love) and the sleeves are longer and cover my bicep tattoo. It looks less demure than in the picture, but still gorgeous. My friend said it looks like a Princess Bride wedding dress! You can adjust the waist tie any way you want, which I didn't realize before I tried it on. Overall, it is super flattering and lovely, and will my wedding dress for my upcoming wedding in Hawaii! Out of the five dresses I've tried on, it is the most flattering to my hourglass figure. It is soft and flowy and floaty, and almost has a renaissance feel, but in a classy and beautiful way. It is also a wonderful cream colour, just what I wanted. There are no embellishments, which makes the style and fabric stand out more. Also, I should mention that BHLDN customer service is excellent and they got this to rural Alaska in record time.

Sleeve not the same
I was looking at this dress to be my wedding dress. When I received it though the sleeves were much longer and puffy in person. Not at all like they look on the model. I was disappointed and returned the dress.
