Cute and classic wedding dress
I wore this in ivory for my wedding and people are always surprised when I tell them it was a bridesmaid's dress. It was great for a simple, outdoor wedding (it you have an evening, formal ceremony...not so much). I am 5' 1" / 130 lbs / 32D and a 4 fit really well (a little loose before I put my bra on). Good option for petite woman who don't want to break up their figure or have it overwhelmed by embellishments.
The only alteration it needed was a hem, done by my friend's mom. Again, great dress for keeping costs low!
I also wore it for the reception with the straps tied back so I could dance without worries that something might slip out. ;)

I was looking for a blush gown for my reception (since I didn't want to change out of my ceremony sari into a different type of Indian outfit and I couldn't wear white at and Indian wedding for cultural reasons), and I fell in love with the dress online and I knew it was the one as soon as I tried it on. My maid of honor who went shopping with me said I was glowing and didn't look like I wanted to take it off. I'm 5'1" and petite (but pear shaped), so I bought a size 2 since while the tulle is flowy, the skirt underneath hugged my hips a little too tightly. The 2 was perfect and all I had done was to have it hemmed and have cups put in. Also, adding a glittery/crystal belt instead of wearing it with the sash that it came with made all the difference in the world in accentuating my waist and giving it some more glam and oomph factor since I was the bride. (For a bridesmaid I think the sash would be perfect). I received so many compliments at the wedding, and my mom kept hearing about it afterwards from all her relatives. It was fun to wear and loved it for my reception. Couldn't have been happier!

This dress was my wedding gown. I had ordered quite a few dresses in all different sizes according to their size charts. Originally ordering a size 2, then a size 0. Ended up with the 0 because of the fit around the bust. The only thing i had to do was get it hemmed! Couldn't have been happier with my entire experience of dealing with BHLDN and the fit and quality of this dress! Thank You!

Show stopper Bridesmaid dress!
We bought 4 of these dresses for our daughters who were our bridesmaids, 2 in the Rose and 2 in the Misty Gray. They were obsessed with these dresses, we even thought to change as the wedding got closer given the expected temps at the beach in the evening but they wouldn't part with them after trying them on!! Given the 2 layers of tulle and the 2 layers of satin, there was a good bit of hem work, so alterations on each dress was $80. They ran large for sure, our girls who are 5'3" - 5'7" and 118-128 pounds ALL wore the size 2.
