The most amazing dress from the newest Gala III (3) range, be one of the first brides to wear this design.
Had Galia Lahav change the rhinestone trimming to the most intricate little pearl beadings which perfectly complimented the couture lace on the dress. Loved the classic silhouette from the deep V in front. There's skin coloured netting to keep everything in place. The back was lowered for a more bohemian feel as the actual dress arrived with quite a high back. The runway sample I tried had the perfect low back like in the first catalogue picture. This dress also has THE most amazing train!
Straps were shortened to fit a 160cm uk6/8 frame. Length in front was shortened to 160cm height + 10cm heels. But as you can see from the pics it was in fact left a tad longer than that. Bustle was added as well as a loop for the finger. The dress is stretchable all over and comes with inner spax sewn in, it's unbelievably comfortable to wear and move around in.
My measurements in the pictures are bust 33in, waist 26in, hips 36in. The dress is actually a tad larger as I had lost some weight since ordering it but left the size as is. It's not really obvious as the dress is stretchable, hugs in all the right places and is very forgiving.
This Gala-802 was barely worn for only a couple of hours during my wedding ceremony as I changed shortly after. It is in almost new condition with no loose beads or fraying (that I can see!). Wish I had a reason to wear it again.
Happy to send more pictures! Will include 2 veils: fingertip & floor length drop circle veils.
