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!

I only tried this one dress on, because I knew it was the one! I'm 5' 9", 127lbs, and usually wear a size 2 or 4, but I fit into a 00 in this dress. I only had to adjust the length of the straps. Even though it appears delicate, the dress withstood the gravel that I managed to drag around with me during my wedding photos~

The whole BHLDN experience and the final product was more than I ever could have dreamed. Everyone was so helpful in the Atlanta store, and my assistant fell in love with this dress on me as much as I did. I'm 5'4" and 125 pounds, and got a size 2. I had to get the straps taken in to pull the dress up higher and got some length taken off, but everything else was perfect! I purchased a sash from BHLDN and wore flats with my dress. All of my guests and friends gushed over it, and my photographer said it's her favorite dress she's ever seen! I took it as a big compliment coming from a wedding photographer :) I could go on-and-on, but if you're thinking about getting this dress then you can't go wrong.
