Alvina Valenta 9216 Wedding Dress
This is an authentic Alvina Valenta Spring 2012 collection gown which I bought from a boutique on 5th Ave, NYC. The dress is elegantly designed and beautifully made. It has a Chantilly lace bodice with silk ribbon and flower detail at the natural waist. The lace peeks over the bustline, projecting subtle cheekiness. The lace is complimented with a swirling multi-tiered tulle skirt and horsehair detail. The look is romantic and whimsical, with subtle boldness, which was exactly what I wanted for my wedding. To top it off, it was incredibly comfortable to wear, and felt so light and happy.
I tried on many dresses before I found this (Vera Wang, Lusan Mandongus, etc etc). But I loved this dress the moment I put it on. Everyone said I looked absolutely stunning in the dress.
I made some alterations to the dress so it is one of a kind. My stylist/consultant and I decided to remove the one-shoulder tulle and make it a sweetheart strapless. This makes the dress look more timeless. I paid $500 (additional to the above stated price) for alterations.
I have some of the tulle from the gown which can be made into a matching veil or headpiece, if you like. My seamstress also removed one of the silk flowers so as to better emphasize my waist (i.e. make it look slimmer). She sewed it onto a hairpin to complete the look. These can be included.
Professionally dry-cleaned and lovingly preserved.
