I tried this dress on in the new Walnut Creek store, and tried really hard to talk myself out of it because no one in my group of family/friends reacted to it when I tried it on, and I wasn't sure it matched my concept of our Paris Park Wedding in June 2017 (I was thinking I'd wear something more like the Amalia). But I couldn't get the Rosalind out of my head! I bought it along with a few other BHLDN options, and made ANOTHER appointment to have Lauren help me style it, and as soon as she put the veil on my head, I was smitten and sold. I love the straps in the front (and obviously the back), and was even more excited that for my athletic frame with broad shoulders, this was a strappy dress I could wear without feeling or looking like a linebacker. Most importantly, I feel happy and awesome in this dress and can't wait to get married in it!

This dress is incredible! I love it so much, I'm so glad I chose it to wear for my wedding. When it first arrived the straps were very long but it was easy to have them altered. There is no bustle so I had my alterations lady make one. The way she did it turned out great! She made it so there were two pieces coming from the sides and one from the center of the back of the dress. Our wedding day was really hot and I didn't feel over heated and I was really comfortable the whole time. I also received A LOT of compliments on it. Definitely a good choice.

I am actually the mother of the bride, but am doing the alterations on the dress for my daughter's wedding in October. We went to the Chestnut Hill store in late December with another dress in mind to try on. This dress had just come in and wasn't even showing on line but our stylist thought my daughter would like it based on her other choices. Although the size she tried on was too big and had to be clipped we all immediately fell in love with it. We decided to wait to purchase since it was our first time trying on dresses to see if there would be something better, but a month later decided this was the one. Based on measurements we went with a size 2 and the fit was almost perfect. As others have said, the back straps are too long and it definitely needed cups. It was also shortened since she will be wearing flats for the wedding. We were also concerned about the back length of the train for dancing at the wedding so I will be adding a button to the back lining in order to "bustle" the train as the tulle layers in the back have thread connections with loops to easily do this. We are thrilled with the results and so relieved this decision was so easy!

This dress made me feel like my loveliest self while wearing it. The cut accentuates a woman's best features. But the best part was how fun it was to dance in. All that tulle was wonderful to twirl!
I purchased a size 4, but I had the dress taken in at the hips since the underlining sat a little too high and wide for my liking. I'm hippy and didn't need any help there. There are, after all, five or six layers of tulle there that create weight. The straps were a little too loose, so I had those adjusted as well. I also hemmed the skirt to my heel height, but it didn't matter much â?? the stilettos I wore kept catching in the tulle as I walked and I punched many tiny holes in the bottom and sides of my gown. But it's not the dress's fault, tulle is delicate and I should have worn a wider based heel.
This dress is dainty yet structured, feminine and graceful yet comfortable. It was just what I had been looking for for my desert wedding. I just wish I had another excuse to wear it!
