This stunning dress was purchased in July 2014 from Brown’s Vera Wang London and worn on my wedding day in September 2014 (for 8 hours). In excellent condition, and so beautiful. Professionally dry cleaned and stored since the wedding. I have the certificate of authenticity from Vera Wang and receipt. The dress looks brand new. It was cleaned by dry cleaners,"Lewis & Wayne" London (recommended by the Vera Wang shop). There are a couple of very small tears on the inside skirt which are not visible to the eye and are covered with layers of fabric. RRP £7000 (alterations further £500)
I absolutely loved wearing this Tulle and Organza dress. It was so lovely, but so comfortable and easy to move in.
Alterations were completed by the specialist wedding seamstress at Brown’s London. A US Size 6/UK 10 was purchased and was taken in to fit to a US size 4/UK 8. This dress could be taken back out to a UK 10 or taken in one more size to a UK 6 (the seamstress told me). In addition a bustle was added to hold the train of the dress from the back for the reception and I also had the neckline altered very subtly to create a more sweetheart neckline. A beautiful Taupe sash that came with the dress is still brand new and was not worn on the day of the wedding.
I live in Marylebone, London.
From the website: The Diana takes your breath away. Vera Wang has outdone herself with this strapless soft sweetheart full A-line gown with a draped wrap bodice and swirling frothy draped skirt that is at once a masterpiece and a vision of individual style with its delicately asymmetrical tulle layers.
