Designer: Élysée Atelier Style: Louveciennes Size: 4 Colour: Ivory Silhoutte: Mermaid Height: Bride was 5 ft 3in and wore 4 in heels Alterations: The deep v-neck of the dress was sewn up to make the dress more modest, this was done by an expert seamstress and spare motifs which came with the dress were added to make the seam invisible. A piece of mesh was added to the underneath of the arms of the dress, also by an expert seamstress to make the arms fit better as they were a little tight on me when the dress originally arrived. These could be easily taken out again Location: Tipperary Condition: Excellent as new worn once
I have made the difficult decision to sell my beautiful wedding dress. It is just too beautiful to stay sitting in a cupboard and I would prefer that another bride gets to enjoy it.
The dress was purchased new from Little London Brides (a licensed Elysee retailer in the UK) for over 3000 sterling. It was only worn one day and was very well taken care of on the day. The train was never allowed to drag on the ground it was only ever placed for photos and I have subsequently had the dress professionally dry cleaned so it is like new.
The only slight repair needed to the dress is to the underarms, these got small tears in them when my husband lifted me during our first dance. The tears are near the seams and can be easily repaired by any competent seamstress.
The dress is absolutely stunning, it is the most beautiful mermaid silhouette and features the most exquisite, hand-beaded floral embroidered lace, sweetheart neckline bodice, delicate long beaded lace sleeves, and signature ÉLYSÉE sculpted hem. The dress is worked all over with iridescent beads and so it glimmers in the light.
The dress was so comfortable to wear and I got so many compliments with many people saying it was the most beautiful dress they had ever seen.
I will also include free for the buyer the chapel-length veil I wore with the dress.
Please email me for more photos. I am also happy for anyone interested to make an appointment to come and try the dress on. We are located near Clonmel in Tipperary.
