Perfect Beach Wedding Dress
I bought this in size 2 for our July 18th Charleston Beach wedding and it was PERFECT. I am 5"4" and weight 120lbs. I did have it taken up in the shoulders (my alterationist had to create a seem at the top) as I am small in the torso to shoulders. The feel of the fabric was wonderful and the draping was perfectly light for a our warm evening wedding. I bought a gorgeous rhinestone sash and the Betty Johnson shoes as pictured - perfect!

Love it but...
I loved this dress both in photos and in store. Catherine Deane's dresses are incredibly soft. However, the built in cups in this dress are clearly visible when you wear it. There's a line that can be seen by anyone who looks at you just under each cup, which detracted from the beauty of this dress.

high quality, slightly large
I ordered this and another non- Catherine Deane dress from BHLDN at the same time and the difference in quality was apparent- this dress was incredibly soft, flowy, and worth the price. However, the sizing did not personally work for me as the proportions of the top half of the dress just seemed off. Also, the band around the waist is a ribbon which was disappointing and not at all how it appears in the photo. Still, a beautiful dress, just not for me.
