As simple and plain as this dress may seem, it is extremly elegant if you wear the right accessories. I tried on multiple dresses at bridal boutiques and not only were the dresses huge (I wear a 00) but they weren't what I wanted. I ordered the dress and I admit I was a bit scared since it was a size 0 and quite simple but once I put it on, there was no doubt it was The Dress. It had an extreme tailoring done to make it my length and fit. The tailor left the end a bit longer and made a train like look that dragged as I walked. The amount of tulle and flowiness allows for it to look so graceful as you walk and dance, I literally felt like a swan at my wedding. The detailing on the bust is like pleated and it is so beautiful. I added a rhinestone sash to give it more glam. I kept it simple and used the strapless cause as a wedding dress the other styles felt more bridesmaid. Overall this dress allows you to play with it and make it look unique for your own taste . I love my wedding dress and it made me feel perfect on the happiest day of my life.

Not for the bride
I think as a bridesmaid dress the price is right on this guy. I ordered the Ivory color as a possible wedding dress and I returned it immediately. First, it doesn't come in the nice box/dress bag/ hanger other BHLD dresses do.. which, to me, means they realize it's not that great. The material in Ivory looked and felt cheap. I do think in a darker color it would look nicer, paired with a belt would be nice too. It seemed to run a little small for busty girls. I'm a size 6 and the 6 in this was so tight I could barely get it over my C cups.

Lovely Dress, A Few Cons
The dress looks great on my bridesmaids. The tulle material on the dress is not one piece of tulle, its cut into pieces; which is great because you can take two pieces and create shoulders, or different designs. When the tulle is hanging down, you can't tell its not one piece. <- Hope that wasn't confusing.
Dress is a bit dark, similar to the picture shown. Not a problem, especially since I had read another review saying that.
The chest area is quite large on the girls, but they are A-B cups. And the dress is very very long on them. They're all about 5'5 5'6. But its much better that its too long and not too short!
Also if you're ordering to Canada, we had to pay $190 in duties. But the dresses we're cheaper than buying the dress at most bridal stores. It arrived within 10 days or so.
Overall- Really love the dress. and i'm excited for my bridesmaids to wear it on my big day (after its hemmed!)

Smaller than expected
This dress arrived and was lovely, but I ended up having to return it. I have never gotten a Jenny Yoo before, but I got the dress in an 8 since I have the Esme and the Niceties dress (which I wish BHLDN had never discontinued...I wanted to get it in every color, it was so lovely, but I digress...) and both fit perfectly in that size, and I assumed (wrongly,) it would be the same. The Annabelle dress was fine in the hips and waist, but quite small in the bust. My husband couldn't even zip it up. I am medium-chested (34C) so I was not expecting this. It felt like I might have to go 2 sizes up in the chest (but then it would have been too large in the waist,) so I returned it and got another Niceties dress that came on sale, instead. The color of the Annabelle in soft plum was gorgeous, so perhaps one day I will cave and try it in a larger size.
