Monique Lhuillier Alexandra Gown and Alexandra Custom Bolero. Purchased in 2020.
I absolutely love her (Alexandra, the gown!) but she deserves another chance to be worn again! This dress was everything I wanted and more for my wedding day! The lace is so very beautiful in person and photographed wonderfully. Most importantly, I felt comfortable (it feels so light) and confident all night in a wonderfully made gown. That train, that lace, this dress is the epitome of elegance.
The dress has a Ball Gown style silhouette with a sweetheart strapless neckline, internal corset, dropped waist and zip closure in the back of the bodice. The full skirt comes with internal horsehair construction for skirt fullness and drapes, as well as a magnificent lace train. It also comes with detachable tulle spaghetti straps at the front on snap buttons (which were added at my request).
The dress also includes a custom made Alexandra Bolero which is removable from the dress, but I chose to wear all night! I simply had to have the lace sleeve and back! It was made based on the Mauve Balero pattern (Fall 2019 collection) but using the same lace as the Alexandra gown itself. It has pearl button details on the sleeves and a beautiful back design that was custom designed for me. It comes on a hook and eye closure at the front which is simply invisible to the naked eye.
The dress was purchased at a bridal boutique and ordered directly from Monique Lhuillier in April, 2020 and my wedding was in February, 2021. Original receipt available.

Happy to provide further photos in private messages since I can only post 8 here.
The front of the dress was hemmed to a 170cm / 5'10'' height (including heels).
The waist was taken in moderately to size
Custom bra cups were put in to accomodate a larger chest (EURO 60G / US 28G / UK 28F). This can be easily altered for a smaller chest.
