I wore this dress for my wedding on 8.5.23. It was almost perfect - I received many compliments. I removed a star for the following reasons:
1) The glitter shed was OBNOXIOUS. This dress will shed glitter all night. My arms and face were covered in glitter by the end of the night, as was anyone I hugged. I will probably be charged an extra cleanup fee by my venue, I'm not kidding.
2) I did a custom size order. I additionally needed alternations to put in a corset back (OB quoted around $400 to do it, my local lady did it for $150) and shortened up the shoulder straps since the longer straps made the built-in bra unusable. However, this did cause a situation where the waist was raised a bit into 'empire waist' category. I understand most of this was my fault, but I think OB could require a few more measurements about the length of the torso for custom sizes.
I have been waiting to be able to write this review! Like most people, I was very hesitant about ordering my wedding dress online, but I couldn't get the sparkle kossy dress out of my head. I ordered it through "ready to ship" just to try it on and fell in love with a few adjustments. I got in contact with one of the reps at Olivia Bottega and talked about a few of the adjustments that I wanted to make (raising the "v" a little bit, lowering the back, opening up the arm holes) and they quoted me an extremely reasonable add on price to the dress. I approved the changes and ordered the dress in custom sizing to make sure it fits like a glove. When they finished making the dress, they sent me a video of it completed and shipped it promptly! I then ordered the sparkle veil from their website. From beginning to end, the customer service team was so incredibly helpful in creating my dream dress. I would highly recommend Olivia Bottega to everyone that I know!!!
The dress was beautiful, I was a bit skeptical ordering my wedding dress online. But when it turned up I was very happy. It just needed a couple little tweaks and it is perfect! They were great at responding to all my questions and there was a lot! Highly recommend buying your dress from here!
