If you are looking for a whimsical, unique and couture wedding gown - consider the Tracy by Badgley Mischka! Everyone was stunned when I walked out in this dress. I had an outdoor ceremony in a courtyard on a breezy Miami day and the wind complemented the "feathery" tulle appliques of the skirt perfectly. The dress looks like you are floating. Very white swan/couture ballerina! The dress is corsetted for a stunning fit, made of netted tulle in the bodice, and has hundreds of tulle pieces to create a "feathery" look in the skirt.
UPDATE: Our wedding was featured in the Knot Magazine! Check out my dress on their website here:
NOTES: Belt is NOT included (was sold separately).
Although the color says "diamond white" it is not a stark bright white. It's actually soft white (but not ivory).
I have the original receipts of purchase and cleaning.

This dress has a hidden bustle (that I never used because I changed out of the dress shortly after the ceremony). The length was altered to fit me, but can easily be shortened do to its style. There are no cups sewn in - the dress came corsetted. I requested the designer drop the waist 1.5 inches to elongate the torso just a little (but it is by no means a "dropped waist" style) and it looked amazing, especially when worn with a belt.
VEIL / HEADPIECE DESCRIPTION
I will include the cathedral length veil or the elbow length double-veil (or both) if you are interested at no additional charge. Just ask!
DRY CLEANING / PRESERVATION
Professionally dry-cleaned at LaSalle Cleaners in Coral Gables, the recommended shop of Chic Parisien (the bridal boutique where I purchased my gown in Miami, FL), at a cost of $335.00. Have receipt to show proof.
