I had already purchased a dress for my September 2015 wedding but could not get the thought of lace out of my mind....that is always what I had pictured myself in and is not what I bought.
After searching high and low for a reasonably priced all lace dress without beads, sequins, etc. I stumbled upon this beauty. It arrived within 2 days of ordering in a garment bag with wooden hanger...no wrinkles and packaged very nicely. This dress is GORGEOUS. The quality/material is great and the scalloped detail around the bust and hem make the dress unique.
All of the reviews said to order a size down, but I went by the measurements and ordered a 14 (my bridal size) based on my bust...I'm street size 6/8/10 (40-32-38# A 12 would have fit better in the bust #it's actually loose and will need altered) but the 14 fits great with room in all other areas and hugs and hangs beautifully...I was not looking for something to be skin tight. I'm 5'3 so a lot will need hemmed but with the way the dress is made there will be no problem removing the scalloped edge to do so.
Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase and can't wait to wear this dress for my casual back yard wedding!

Love, love, love!!!
My dress came in today, and I love it! The lace is beautiful, and the cut of the dress is perfect. It fit my curves perfectly, and the sweetheart neckline is wonderful. I am on the shorter end of the spectrum so the dress is quite a bit long but a seamstress will have no issues altering its length. Also, the color of the dress is a bit lighter/whiter than I imagined it to be but I have no real qualms about it. The Seraphina is perfect for my upcoming wedding, and I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase. It's classic & romantic - everything I wanted in a wedding dress. Also, I must add that the dress was packaged perfectly in a cream garment bag with the cutest BHLDN wooden hanger. It was clean, pressed nicely and had no odor.

This did not end up being the dress for me just because I felt like it didn't flatter my (lack of) curves. However, if you are looking for a beautiful strapless lace gown, this could be the one. The quality of the lace is very good for this price point. A friend of mine who saw it said she thought it was just as nice as dresses she'd seen at twice the price.

Beautiful; do order a size down
This is a lovely, surprisingly comfortable gown. The material is soft and very pretty. It's pretty enough for a church wedding but would also be great for something less formal. The gown is structured and shaped nicely but leaves room to breathe. I normally wear a 4 but had tried on Tadashi Shoji gowns before, so I knew to order a 2. It fits perfectly and will require no alterations. It is a bit long, so it will require heels for me (I'm 5'5"). The bust is perfect for 34C, but if you are much smaller or much larger than that, this may not be the gown for you. I am very pleased with it for the price. Very fast shipping and very well packaged in a nice garment bag with a sturdy hanger.
