One World One Price
I did not want to spend lots of time trying on overpriced dresses and decided to give lightinthebox.com a try. I chose this dress because of its simplicity, flattering A-Line and romantic lace overlay. I did not go for the custom size as one of the standard sizes matched my measurements. Ordering was simple and the dress arrived within the specified timeline – the tracking via the website worked well and kept me up to date.
When the dress arrived in its tiny box, I could not believe how beautiful it was. I tried it on and knew I’d made the right choice. It did need a few alterations but this was done in two fittings with a local seamstress at little cost. I had the straps shortened, the lace trimmed (it was longer than the satin) and I had the lace from the bottom of the dress turned into a panel that was inserted into the bottom of the v-neck – there would have been too much exposed cleavage otherwise. These were all small alterations and done quite easily and cheaply, turning this dress into the perfect dress for me.
On the day, I felt comfortable and elegant – thanks to lightinthebox! I later also ordered my bridesmaids’ dresses and a guestbook from lightinthebox, all of which were of good quality, delivered on time and much admired by our wedding guests. A brilliant shopping experience.
Brought the dress for my wedding in october2012 was very pleased when the dress arrived
just how i rememberd wonderful. just wanted to ask if the lace over the top could be brought separatley?
I love this dress. it is so much more than what I thought it was from the picture. It fits me wonderfully, I mean yes I'm going to need to alter it but I knew that when I bought it. I love how it makes me look elegant but without trying too hard which is what I wanted. Also the people at Light In The Box were wonderful, there was a slight delay with shipping my order but when asked about it they told why it was delayed and that new date that it would be sent which I really appreciated. Also they responded very quickly which is another thing that I love about because other places wouldn't respond within 24 hours like they did. Overall my experience with Light In The Box has been very good, I will defiantly shop from them again.
could you send me some pics? I want to see the real thing before buying firstname.lastname@example.org thanks

I was wondering if this dress can be worn with a petticoat or hoop for a slightly fuller look?
No, it doesn't need a petticoat.

Wondering if someone could send pics to my email. Im going for a vintage feel to my wedding and this looks promising!!
thanks so much
I´m seriously considering to order this dress but I would like to make sure the following: 1) If I order the satin colour Champagne, what will be the colour of the lace .... Is it color coordinated or not? 2) Is it possible to shorten the dress in case I will need / want it ... of course I will do it myself (I want to make it knee long after the wedding and wear it for another ocassions as well)?
Thank you, S
The lace will be champagne if you order the dress in champagne.
We have no idea about how the dress look after shortening. And we don't recommend to change the style of this dress.

Thank you for shopping with us:)

I am absolutely delighted with my new wedding dress. It is simple and elegant as well as capturing the vintage look I was after. I decided not to go for custom measurements as I still have 6 months to the big day and my body shape will probably change (hopefully for the better!), but I was chuffed with a 10 being too big. I have already confirmed with a dress maker that it will be no big drama to take it in and she was very impressed with the quality of the dress and craftsmanship involved. Delivery was right on time and the whole experience was very positive. Thank you Light In The Box!!!
Like other brides I really want to buy this dress, it is the first one on my favorite list ! But I am unsure of the texture, is the fabric too hard? and the lace is it really old fashioned? My wedding will be at an exclusive beach resort , indoors most of the time, with a ceremony outdoors, and do not want the dress to clash with the place ( too thick or old style), thanks for your insights..
The fabric of this dress is satin with lace. If you think the lace is old fashioned, you could choose other wedding dress from LightInTheBox.com.
