It comes in a fairly small box, and is inside out to protect the detailing. The pictures I posted, it is quite creased but nothing a bit of steaming won't fix!! The detailing on the bodice is fantastic and the thing weighs about 5 pounds!!!! Absolutely stunning, I look forward to ordering my bridesmaid gowns as well!!!
I commented before the wedding about the fit of the dress, but on the day of the wedding, it was even better. I got a million compliments on the dress & nobody believed how inexpensive it was (not even the seamstress I got to alter the straps!).
