Bought this for my mom to wear at my August wedding. It is a beautiful gown!!! The color Jade isn't as bright in person as it shows on screen, which was good since we didn't want it too bright. The only thing that was a little different than I expected is the crystal applique. Instead of a clear color, it has more of a colorful rainbow shine to it. It is still a very pretty decorative touch to the dress, though. The flutter sleeves on the dress are perfect for a hot summer day, while still offering coverage. Before purchasing, I measured my mom and went with the size closest to those measurements and it fits almost perfectly. We will just have to take it in a bit on the top and get it hemmed. For the price we paid, I feel the value is fantastic and I would highly recommend buying!
