I chose the Verdelle 2.0 gown and the Frederike Veil. By the time I found the Grace Loves Lace showroom in Dallas, I had already been to numerous other bridal boutiques trying to find the perfect dress but had come up empty handed. I had an idea of what I was looking for, and the number one priority was that it had kimono style sleeves. With such a specific look in mind, I was convinced I wouldn’t find it. I was so discouraged. Another bridal boutique who didn’t carry what I was looking for recommended Grace Loves Lace so I called to make a last minute appointment. They got me right in, and I explained my situation to the girl working there. She told me she thought she had the perfect dress for me and brought out the Verdelle 2.0. I put it on and instantly fell in love. I looked at my mom and she said “this is it, you look like an angel”. It even had angel wings, AKA the style of sleeve I was looking for.
I was extremely comfortable, the lace was very elastic. So I was able to dance, have a drink with each of my friends and my husband, sit on the beach, carry the children, while still being very comfortable. I feel lucky to have known GLL and to have been able to wear such a unique dress on my wedding day, I am so proud.
I chose the Verdelle 2.0, but before finding GLL, I actually already had a wedding dress. It was a fitted, strapless gown with a beaded bodice and mermaid skirt… and even though I thought it was glamorous and pretty, I later found myself still desiring something I could call different. The fun and whimsical Verdelle was exactly the different I was looking for. I loved the “wings” that outstretched and caught the wind, the way the lace layered when they collapsed, and how they danced with my movements. The low back was an added bonus.
A few years before James proposed, I found the Verdelle 2.0 gown by Grace Loves Lace when looking for wedding inspiration for a best friend. From that moment I fell in love with the gown I just knew that would be the gown I would love to wear on my special day! I love the gorgeous lace, the beautiful design and how unique the gown I especially the angel-like sleeves (wings!).
