Selling my Ronald Joyce Lola ballgown
Hope you're all doing really well and that the sun is shining where you are today!
I'm selling my Ronald Joyce Lola ballgown wedding dress, as we are finally moving house (EXCITED!) and it is tiny (London...) so I sadly don't have space to keep my beautiful Lola anymore (she's a BIG ballgown!)
Hoping to find her a new owner who can enjoy her like I have. Here is what you need to know (copied over from other sites where I've listed here too):
The dress is a classic princess ball gown made of ivory tulle. With 12 layers to the skirt, it is truly a once-in-a-lifetime gown to wear. The bodice is structured, and features a folded tulle overlay which is encrusted across the neckline edge with a mix of silver-toned beads and crystals (see the close-up photos on this listing).
The dress can be worn STRAPLESS or WITH SPAGHETTI STRAPS. They come detachable, so the choice is yours.
The waistline has more silver beading and crystals, and a silk flower on the right hip. This could be easily moved elsewhere.
The back is a lace-up design.
I'm 5 foot 7 inches and wore 3 inch heels so unless you're super tall you've got wiggle room with the skirt to have it altered to fit your height.
-- CONDITION --
The dress is in superb pre-loved condition. There is one tear in the upper skirt layer - hard to see as there's so much going on on the skirt but you could have it repaired. Other small holes and discolourations on the edges of the underneath layers of the skirt that I don't think you'd see when it's on (obviously I can't say 100% because I haven't put it on since the big day!)
The rest of the dress is in perfect condition. Nothing was spilled, dripped, no sweat marks, tears, or lost beads or crystals. Really is stunning.
-- EXTRA STUFF INCLUDED --
After the big day I has the dress professionally cleaned. I also had a custom made acid-free ivory storage box made. The box cost £300. If you buy my dress, I'll send it to you in this box at no extra cost. You won't have to worry about what to do with the dress after your big day - just have it cleaned and stowed away!
I will also include the underskirt complete with hoop that is recommended for this gown to make the skirt sit perfectly. It cost £70 at the time, so it saves you a little more money.
-- EXTRAS FOR PURCHASE --
I am also selling the two-tier cathedral veil with teardrop crystals on the edge. See photos. If you would like it, make me an offer. I am also happy to sell the crystal hairpiece comb you see in the photos - again just make an offer.
-- THE DEAL --
This dress was just over £1000. The custom box cost £300. The underskirt and hoop cost £70. That's £1,370.
I need to say goodbye to my dress now as we are moving house and I don't have the space. I want to use money from the dress to get our home set up!
-- MAKE ME AN OFFER --
Feel free to make me an offer! The box is huge and it's best for you to come and pick her up (I'm central London right now) but I can send courier too if needs be and will scope out and let you know courier options if you decide to purchase.
Thanks loads, any questions just ask!
