Designer: Amanda Wakeley Style: Cleopatra Size: 10 Colour: Ivory Silhoutte: A line Height: Bride was 5 ft 8 and wore 3 inch heels Alterations: The dress was taken up very slightly at the front whilst the train at the back was left untouched. I am 5ft 7 and wore 3/4 inch heels (roughly) so there is plenty of room for further alterations if need be. I also had three small hooks added for a bustle for the amazing long train which I used for the evening reception. Location: Tipperary Condition: Excellent as new worn once
This is the most AMAZING dress I have ever worn and I am really torn as to whether or not to sell it. It is a real show-stopper and was purchased at Myrtle Ivory, Dublin in March 2019 for my wedding in August 2019.
Worn only once last month, this luxurious silk georgette dress is an amazing mix of boho chic and elegance. Embellished with bronze coloured beading across the bodice, this backless dress is finished with rows of draped beading at the back. It’s a really flattering dress to wear, so comfortable and comes with a matching beaded tie back belt that shapes the dress in an effortlessly relaxed fit.
I tried on a lot of dresses from several well known bridal designers before this one – and had almost settled on another dress – but once I tried this on, nothing else compared. I myself tried to source this dress second hand – with no joy! I was very fortunate that Myrtle Ivory was still in business as they were the only bridal store in the country stocking Amanda Wakeley dresses. Unfortunately, Myrtle Ivory closed the end of June so this really is a great opportunity for the boho brides out there to get their hands on a gem of a dress as it is currently not stocked anywhere in the country as far as I know.
The dress comes with the original Amanda Wakeley garment bag, along with additional beading in the event that it is needed.
I also have the original receipt as proof of purchase from Myrtle Ivory showing the full purchase price denoted.
I am reluctantly putting this dress up for sale as it really is the most amazing dress – but I honestly don’t know where I could possible wear it again…so would love it to go to another bride who loves it as much as I do!
