Berta 14-13 Wedding Dress
This beautiful hand made Berta gown is impeccable. Made from the finest materials and French lace, hand sewn in Israel, it's one of a kind. Berta is only sold at special events by exclusive bridal shops in the US and around the world. This dress was purchased from such an event at Lovella Bridal. Please see my google drive for an EXTENSIVE number of pictures of the dress including photos of the dress, veil (included), shoes (also for sale), and bridesmaids dresses (also for sale) in action, on the hanger, post dry cleaning, and up close:
The dress features a deep-v with mesh insert so there's no chance for bust mishaps, beautiful hand beading, a lace waist and back, corset buttons down the back and a zipper closure. I wore this dress once at my wedding and immediately had the dress evaluated by my seamstress to restore to the original quality (reinforcing the bustle, tightening any loose beads, etc.) had the dress dry-cleaned and preserved to museum standards (a $700 process in total). The bottom most part of the bustle as a slight imperfection where you can see a small seam where it was repaired so please review the photos on the google drive. Otherwise there are no blemishes, imperfections, tears, rips or stains on this dress or veil.
The dress is a Berta size 38 C cup—Berta has her own measurement guide and offers 36, 38, 40, 42 and 46 dress sizes. The 38 is comparable with a street size 6. The C cup can fit Bs as well and for an A cup you could place a small insert for a snug fit.
The shoulder of the dress to the front hem (bottom front of the dress) measures 62'' and in the back the lace extends an extra 25" beyond that for a train. If you measure from where the bustle is that is about 55'' of French lace to the end of the train.
I am selling the dress with the matching veil included in the price. It also been dry cleaned and preserved in box by museum standards. The veil retails well over $300.
I also have the Kate Spade matching shoes size 9 US available. I wear 8.5-9 US and they fit me beautifully. They are 4'' wedges at their tallest dimension and advertised by Kate Spade as 3.5'' Ivory/Satin colored satin shoes made in Italy which retail for over $300. I also had the shoes dry cleaned and they are except for dirtying of the soles in excellent condition. They are incredibly comfortable, like walking on air. The shoes took me from a 5'6.5''-5'7'' to 5'11'' approximately. Please email me for pictures and details, as they match perfectly with the dress.
The fact that you're looking at a Berta dress means you're guaranteed to have an amazing and stylish celebration of your love to remember for the rest of your life. My wedding ended up being even more amazing than I could have imagined, and my dress stole the show. I had elderly Persian guests tell me it was the best wedding they've ever been to, and trust me, these folks have seen some weddings and some wedding dresses in their time!!! You will more than thrilled with this dress--that I guarantee.
I am open to best offers on this dress and veil combination (with or without the shoes) so if you feel inclined send me your best offer. I want this dress to find a deserving home and bride! All the best and congrats to you and yours!
The dress was hand made to my measurements 33.5 bust, 26 waist, 36 hips and taken in slightly at the hips by the professional alteration team at Lovella bridal to give it a more snug feel given that the dress (and all bridal gowns) gives naturally with wear. The seamstress also made an elegant and easy to use bustle (4 buttons). The measurement before dry cleaning was approximately 25'' waist at the narrowest where the lace insert is, 34'' hips, 33.5'' bust. Measurements were taken with the dress lying flat and are +/- 1-2" when worn. Of course you will want to get it tailored to you if it's not perfect fit but you will want custom tailoring with any dress you buy! I have 4 extra buttons from Berta that I will be providing with the dress. I am selling the Kate Spade Shoes and two Allure bridesmaids dresses as well. Please see the google drive photos for pictures of those and my separate advert for the bridemaids dresses.
Matching Ivory Veil purchased from Lovella Bridal. The veil has an attached hair piece for easy use. The veil retails for over $300 and matched the dress perfectly and has been dry cleaned and preservation boxed. It is 100'' long. Please contact me regarding the matching Kate Spade shoes featured in the pictures and described above (exceptionally comfortable and a perfect color match).
Dry cleaning and preservation performed with Museum Quality preservation, a 700 process in total
