Â by Verified Reviewer Perfect Dress for Hot Summer Wedding
The wedding was in August in Virginia which is notoriously hot and humid. I was looking for a dress that was both comfortable and chic. I love the way it falls straight down: creates lots of ventilation because it's not sticking up against the body. It was a nice surprise to see how beautiful it twirls on the dance floor. Also something worth noting is that the dress falls a few inches longer on me than on the Bhldn model because I am shorter, but still -- fantastic. I am a small-medium in "normal" clothes and I bought the smallest size the dress came in. It absolutely will need to be taken in as it runs quite large (typical for wedding dresses). I had a neighborhood tailor take it in along the back zipper seam and a little bit on both side panels.. I think the cut is simple enough to bring to a regular tailor that you trust, no need to shell out the big bucks for a wedding dress tailor.

Â by Verified Reviewer for me, perfect
This was my wedding dress, and I love love love it. It is soft to the touch, summery, loose, but flattering. Beautiful, but subtle embroidery, nude on nude. Oh, I love it. I tried on many more typical bridal dresses, but not for me, but then, I'm not your typical bride. I'm 61. The designs for 20 something brides did not fit me well, and certainly didn't flatter. I was married in our garden, surrounded by family and friends, and I felt as beautiful as my gorgeous surroundings. Something to think about if you want to feel free, breezy, cool, hip, fashionable, timeless, and not corseted or crunchy. I danced the night away in this baby. The hemline is to-die-for (but did catch in my heel when I danced). (Also, if you are curvy (as you should be) and find the fit and flare, etc. just doesn't do you justice, this dress leaves room to breath and eat, and drink, and dance, and hug, and kiss.) Tiny bit larger than BHLDN's usual sizing. I wore the medium.
