Annabelle for wedding dress
I fell in love with this dress on the website and all the ways it could be styled and decided i wanted it for my beach wedding. I ordered it in Mint Mist.
I am typically a 6-8 (wider hips, smaller up top), so i ordered an 8 and it JUST FIT. Frankly, had they not been sold out of 10's, i would've returned it and had it altered slightly. I would've preferred it slightly large than a little snug. It's by no means TIGHT, but it is snug. I was surprised so many reviews said it runs large. the opposite was true from my experience.
i have also found that while the panels are wonderful for allowing different styles, they do add bulk to someone with natural curves.
Also, it's not really A-line like the pictures appear. The underskirt is more pencil shaped and it is snug around the hips.
The dress is super long and after i had it hemmed, I honestly felt a little boxy in it.
My wedding is this weekend, so I will update after the big day, but I hope I feel better about the dress on that day than i do right now.
i wanted so bad to love it!
The quality is good and the color is lovely, just not overly impressed with the fit.

Will be perfect with a few alterations.
I purchased this dress for my elopement in rose, size 2.
I am 5'2", so the hem will need to be taken up quite a bit. So for you taller ladies, this dress should have plenty of room for your long lean legs. This dress slightly loose all around. I would recommend ordering in your street size or one size down. Can't wait to have it altered and hug my body perfectly.
The rose colour is a beautiful, feminine, frothy hue. I was concerned the pink would be too girly-girl. Not at all. You'll be very happy with this colour if you've fallen for the Blush trend. Thank you, BHLDN for sending a swatch free of charge before the purchase.
The tulle is a lovely quality and dances around effortlessly. Will photograph very well. The way the tulle is beautifully gathered around the waist and bust-line is so pleasing to the eye and to the figure. Well done, Miss Yoo! The design of the dress speaks for itself and can be worn with little or no accessories.
Thank you so much BHLDN and Jenny Yoo. 10/10! <3

I bought this dress in the rose colour to wear on my wedding day and adore the dress. I will be wearing this with the first light capelet and love the fact that I can have a different look for the ceremony and reception. I found the dress true to size other than around the bust which is quite small, I don't have a large bust but need to go for a size up and have a dressmaker take the dress in around the waist. Beautiful colour and beautiful fabric, would wholeheartedly recommend this dress. I'm quite short so needs taken up by 3 inches.

This dress is truly beautiful and I can not wait to wear it on my wedding day. It came in the mail and I didn't want to take it off. The dress felt true to size a little tight around the bust area. I will size up and have it altered to fit my body. The color is a beautiful soft pink, the pink isn't over powering but very feminine. The material was of good quality and so was the zipper. The dress was very comfortable and will be easy to jazz up with accessories.
