Purchased from Fiorenza in Brisbane www.fiorenza.com.au. Fabric is satin. Original price was $1500. Very flattering. Looks like one piece but is actually two pieces - skirt and beaded bodice. The bodice is really structured, beautiful and intricate. The skirt is very full. A real princess number. Also comes with a satin shawl with a little bit of beading. The dress was worn in 2006, then dry cleaned and has been in storage ever since (In a big box, wrapped in calico - so no crushing). I was planning to give the dress to my daughter but alas I had three boys. The dress has some little dark marks around the bottom. The dry cleaner said she tried everything - so I don't think they're coming out. I don't think anyone would notice and most wedding dresses get these marks pretty early in the piece anyway, as they tend to be floor-length. I loved wearing the dress. It hasn't dated as it's a classic cut. I have more photos that I can send. These were just the two I had handy.
