The colour is definately brighter, more redish, than the pic depicts but it was still absolutely fabulous to look at.
I felt a million dollars and quite the Mother of the Bride while wearing it. I got complimented over and over on the exquisiteness of my choice and many have taken the web details of where I bought it.
I did purchase a petticoat which really made the dress stand out.
I have since packed my dress up but I'm not sure for long.
