My wedding was the first weekend of September 2016 and I rush ordered this dress in July 2016 since I was finally able to get it into a bridal shop to try on (I'd been searching for it for months!!). Instead of ordering the basic size and having multiple alterations done, I custom ordered the dress according to my height (5'7) so that there would be minimal alterations. Ines di Santo gowns have the BEST boning which requires minimal alterations because it just hugs you in all the right places and is extremely slimming. Her dresses have some stretch to them which makes them extremely forgiving as well. I am exactly 5 feet 6.75 inches tall (I claim 5'7) and can wear a 3 to 4.25 inch heel comfortably with this dress as the outer lace layer is slightly longer than the inner layer. I wore 3.25 inch wedges for the ceremony and Manolo Blahnik Hangisi 3 inch heels for photos. I added a bustle to the gown as well as bra cups so you don't have to worry about wearing a bra or a sticky nubra. No alterations were made to the detachable outer skirt. If you would like additional photos of the dress, please message me.
A beautiful sketch of the dress (digital file) will be included as part of the purchase. It's a high resolution file that you can print and frame or use as part of your wedding decor (e.g., menu, program, table numbers).
