A stunning illusion lace wedding dress with a dramatic neck and back and a super flattering waist.
A dress that embodies pure romance, the Teresa features an illusion (see-through) lace and a dramatic low back. The flower lace is a Celia Grace exclusive -- like nothing you'll find anywhere else -- and adds texture to a classic silhouette. The full A-line skirt paired with an in-set silk waist draws the eye for a dramatic and flattering effect. An oversized silk bow is both dramatic and elegant and pockets add fun and function to this beloved gown.
This dress is fully lined and the bodice is constructed with boning, cups, and interfacing for excellent support. Invisible zipper at back.
Handmade. Fair Trade. Ethical. This dress is handmade by Monirul at a well-respected, woman-owned Fair Trade group in India. Monirul earns a fair wage so he can take his kids to the doctor and send his girls to school. Celia Grace makes a one-for-one donation of a school uniform to a needy child in Cambodia for each dress sold.
This dress is named in honor of an inspiring woman, Mother Teresa, who is an example of charity and love for us all.

Refunds & Exchanges: We are unable to accept refunds & exchanges on new dresses.
What is a Home Try-On? It's when we mail you sample dress(es) to try on in the comfort of your home. Your timeline. No pressure. Try on dress(es) over a weekend and then mail them back with the return label we provide.
What does it cost? The try on is free but US shipping costs $29 for the first style and $20 for each additional style--then we take this amount off your dress purchase.
Where do I choose my size & try on dates? Choose your dress size and 1-3 weekends that would work best for you at checkout. We don't have every size in stock for try ons so we'll help choose the best size and we'll send clothing clips to fit the dress (just like at a bridal shop!).
