Dress Alterations

I had the mums removed from the hemline, as I felt they were a little too busy. I am also small chested, so I had padded cups added to the bust. They really gave me added oomf and confidence! However, they are easily removable for a more well-endowed bride (lucky!)

Vera Wang Lillian Wedding Dress

Tulip Chantilly lace mermaid gown with hand pieced circular flange train.

The mermaid gown is always one of my most popular silhouettes, because it brings together two things a bride always has on her mind for her wedding day:  she wants to look sexy, and she wants to be unbelievably glamorous. In the first place, a well-sculpted shape can do the trick, and for show-stopping splendor, you really want a full, dramatic skirt.

Lillian is a quintessential mermaid gown with a sweetheart neckline, but with one important modification: the skirt flares out a bit higher than usual, right at the knee, so she can be worn by petite or taller brides alike. So you get that beautiful, completely seamless, sculpted body combined with just slightly more volume at the skirt — it’s an explosion of textures made all the more dramatic by the extreme contrast of the molded shape on top.

Lillian personifies the romantic siren, and really takes lace and floral motifs in a fresh, sexier direction. It’s all about inventing new classics and redefining heirlooms for the modern woman!


*PLEASE NOTE!* Within the first 5 minutes of wearing my dress on my wedding day, my brother stepped on and subsequently ripped the outer layer of tuille on the left side.  The magical staff at the Belmond El Encanto were able to repair the rip with fabric glue and a safety pin.  Every picture of me in my wedding dress were taken AFTER this repair was made.  I dare you to notice!  

I feel it is important to make any potential buyers aware of this tear.  But, it was an easy fix on an already stressful wedding day.  If you were to buy this dress with ample time to make any additional alterations, I'm sure more can be done to fix any imperfections.  If not, a well-placed safety pin blends the tuille with the existing ruffles and is unrecognizable.  Trust me!

For the best fit, compare your measurements to those of the sellers. As long as EACH of your measurements are the same or smaller than the seller’s, the dress should work for you. Read how to take your dress measurements here.
