Stylist Review!

The Athene Gown is a very special piece. The light, delicate chiffon falls into a beautiful silhouette. It has an ethereal and organic look that has been created with the best craftsmanship. The colors and material are perfect for a summer black-tie event. It has a built-in bra, which fit me perfectly and held the dress up well. It does seem to run a bit small in the bust, so I'd recommend sizing up if you're a 34C cup or higher. It also seems to run a bit long and is best for anyone 5'4" or taller. Definitely pair this style with delicate jewelry and nude heels. Overall, breathtaking!

In person is this too much white for a wedding or is the siding substantial?

This dress was super flowy and moved beautifully in the wind, perfect for my low-key beach wedding.

I received this dress as a replacement, as the one i ordered wasn't available. I really loved it, and it saved my big day. It is super flowy, and there's alot of fabric- it came in three pieces. The waist is on the small side, and it is very long. I'm 5'4", wore 5" heels and it was still long. The dark golden skirt and pale ivory turned out just perfect for my sunset wedding. Super happy i got this dress!
