Rated 5 out of 5 by from Advance try on for wedding in September I had this dress sent to me so that I could try it on before a wedding in September. It was a perfect fit, very comfortable and looked beautiful. It is a brighter colour than the pic but I was expecting this as per the previous reviews and photos. I can't wait to wear this Alex Perry to my friends wedding.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dress for my graduation Dress is darker colour than the pic of model wearing it. I thought it looked darker on pics of other ppl wearing it due to photo filters. A little bit disappointed.
