I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding dress and I cannot count the number of complements I've gotten on it. It was comfortable, timeless and it completely blew away my husband.
Beyond being thrilled with my gown, the consultants at BHLDN were second to none. From the moment I walked into the boutique to the moment I walked down the aisle, they were happy to help.
A word to the wise, the mesh that drapes over the silk is very delicate and is susceptible to snagging. My bracelet got caught more than once.

STUNNING STUNNING STUNNING
What a dress! Stunning and magical, soft and luscious, comfortable and dreamy. Be careful about two things 1) the fabric is delicate everything shows through - wear magical underwear that will not show, I wore the wacoal ipant which is a body shaper that's light weight and smooths invisibly. 2) bones of the dress on the upper bodice show through, both on the cups and on the bones in the middle. Just note this so you know how to hide / remove them in advance.

This dress is amazing! I ordered it online (knowing I could return it) and could not believe how beautiful it was when it came in the mail. The best part is I didn't have to alter it at all! I was shocked that I ended up buying my dress online without even trying it on beforehand, but everything worked out perfectly. I could not have imagined getting married in any other dress. I felt so beautiful and comfortable in it all day.
The only negative aspect about the dress is that I couldn't find anyone who would bustle it... The fabric is too delicate and we were scared that it would rip. The train actually didn't get that dirty at the end of the day but I would be VERY careful with the beading and storage of the dress before your wedding.
I would not have changed anything about the dress and could not imagine wearing anything different on my wedding day.

Beautifully Unique - My Downtown Abbey Dress
While looking through bridal salon dresses, I never found something I thought wasn't just a typical, cookie cutter wedding gown. When my now husband and I decided on a 4 month engagement, I knew a salon dress was out of the question anyway because of time constraints. I visited the lovely BHLDN in Houston, and was convinced this was the dress because I ogled over it constantly on the website. We got it in the mail within 2 weeks, and it was very simple to have altered. I felt gorgeous in it all day. It flowed beautifully, and I wasn't constrained or forced to rely on the grace of Spanx to feel lovely. I paired it with the Curving Periphery Veil, which added a lovely sense of drama as it trailed behind.
Gorgeous dress. I can't imagine a better choice.
