This dress is definitely one-of-a-kind. I've been eyeing this specific dress ever since it came out. I was so sad when my size was no longer available, but something told me to keep checking and thank God I did!! It looks way better in person! Since I'm 5'3, the dress is very long so I have to get it shortened. Also, it's a tad big (ordered the 6) so I have to get it taken in. I'm so glad I bought this dress and I can't wait to wear it on the big day! Thanks BHLDN for never letting me down!!

Better than on the model!
I looked and looked for a lovely dress with a silhouette that flattered me and some traditional details which matched my personal aesthetic. The detailing is beautiful and intricate. Since I'm quite tall at 5-9, the dress's slim silhouette showed off my waist and long legs. This dress is 100 times better than on the model and I just can't wait to wear it on my wedding day!

I am 5'7" 120lbs, 34C, 23"waist, 35" hips
This is the most perfect, beautiful dress ever! I tried on countless dresses before finding rococo. This dress looks much more beautiful I'm person, even better than on the model! I was fitted for a size 2 but it was on back order so I bought the 4, it still fit very well I just had to have the waist taken in a bit. This dress is very long. I am 5'11 in my heels and still had to get it taken up quite a bit, from the waist as to not lose the beautiful detailing at the hem.
My one complaint is that the fabric looks a bit wrinkled, I think due to he nature of the fabric and lace appliquÃ©. Even after a professional press and day or steaming, it still appeared a bit wrinkly but my friends said it was barely noticeable, and in the photos we've gotten so far you can't see it.
I would recommend this dress, it was a bit over my ideal budget but worth every penny. I paired this with the sage veil in ivory

Classic Cut & Vintage Details
I fell in love with the Rococo gown after trying on the sample at the Chicago boutique! It's perfect for the bride searching for a clean silhouette without losing texture and elaborate embroidery.
I am 5' 1'' tall, so I was initially worried about how I was going to shorten the hem without losing the lovely embroidery details on the organza layer. Solution: High heels and a DIY tulle petticoat with enough layers to "puff up" the dress from my waist down until the hem just skims the floor!
