My dress is for sale! I decided to go with a different style for the destination wedding. Never thought I'd be a two dress bride (well technically a three dress bride..eesh). Anyway the Mori Lee is a size 6 Ivory Taffeta a line gown with swarovski crystals throughout the bodice and along the pickups and train. My measurements are 34-26-36 (street size 2) and the dress is a corset back so could fit a smaller bride or larger - street size 0-6. I did have the hem altered to fit my 5'2" height with 3"+ heels so it could fit a bride up to 5'6". I also had two standard bustles done to showcase the crystals along the train.
I paid $699 plus $225 in alterations and am asking $600 OBO.
