I chose this dress to go along with our Art Deco wedding theme, which is a natural fit with our personalities. I worked with a personal trainer during my engagement and my husband really appreciates how toned my back is. I wanted to make sure I chose a dress that would show off my hard work.
My wedding gown is a Sottero and Midgley described as follows from their website: Intricate patterns of glittering beads and opalescent pearls rain down the length of this luxurious tulle sheath wedding gown, with illusion sweetheart neckline and plunging, open back. Finished with covered buttons over zipper closure.
I purchased my wedding gown at Diane’s Formal Affair in Jasper, AL, near our family lake house. After shopping in Atlanta (where I live) and Birmingham (my hometown) with friends and family, I finally found the perfect dress at Diane’s Formal Affair. My brother was married in 2016 and his bride also purchased her gown at Diane’s Formal Affair.

Katie’s Wedding Dress Preservation
When we received Katie’s cream Sottero & Midgley synthetic satin wedding dress with embellished tulle overlay it had a mildly dirty hemline. There was a hole and tear in the hem of the tulle overlay and one button was missing.
We repaired the hole and tear by hand with silk thread for minimal visibility and moved buttons to camouflage the missing one. Our goal it to always return gown to optimal condition.
After a thorough wedding dress cleaning we preserved Katie’s wedding gown with our Museum Method™ wedding dress preservation (See pictures below). The gown is then covered with cotton twill wedding dress preservation bag with a tie front. She will be able to inspect and admire her gown any time she desires.
