Bodice has a silky sweetheart neck under layer with a full lace overlay.
Full length lace sleeves. Scalloped hem and cuffs.
Lace covered buttons fastening all the way down the back - you'll look gorgeous from behind walking down the aisle!
Stunning straight / column / sheath, high-waisted skirt.

Graduated scalloped hem - lower at the back than the front to show off your beautiful wedding shoes!
An exquisite and timelessly elegant dress - simple perfect for a bride after classic vintage style.
I can imagine it looking gorgeous for all seasons; with a snuggly fur bolero over the top, with spring flowers in your hair and a full length veil or with a rich autumnal bouquet.
Made in New Zealand for Ballantynes, Christchurch and Timaru.
