Sublimely elegant, Annette features a high neck, cap sleeves and a daring low back. The front of the bodice and shoulders have a stunning banding detail which adds streamlined depth to this classic beaded wedding gown.
Finished with a fine beaded belt.
A note from Karen — “Annette has a fabulous high neck, a little short raglan sleeve, it’s one of the only wedding gowns with a sleeve of this length in the collection. The skirt is cut on the bias so she is nice and clingy. I wanted the feel to be more of a fabric rather than a heavily beaded gown. It is very delicate and very refined.”

When determining the size of your dress, the most suitable size to order will be determined by your body measurements compared to our size chart and how firm you would prefer the fit. To find out how to take your body measurements check out our sizing guide.
This gown looks like a structured, tailored wedding dress but by beading the sequins onto a bias cut skirt these dresses have flexibility in the fit and will accommodate many different body shapes. Because of the flexibility of the fit, this should reduce the amount of alteration work required to tailor the dress to your liking. The weight of the sequins allows the dress to skim the body in a figure flattering way.
Hem length from the waist to hem is a minimum of 117cm / 46 inches. Due to the hand beaded nature of these dresses, some may be longer than the minimum length stated, however it is expected that you will need to have your dress hemmed to your height with your wedding shoes on. Please keep this in mind based on your height and the height of your wedding shoes. If you choose a firm fit, this could affect the hem to sit shorter.
If your preferred gown is in stock in your size, it will be dispatched to you within 5-10 business days. If your size is out of stock, please contact us with details of your wedding date and preferred size and we will advise you of your options.

The beading and embroidery on this garment has been hand-sewn exclusively for KAREN WILLIS HOLMES.
Each and every gown is different and unique. Please treat the garment with lots of love and care when wearing and storing the gown. With most designs the beading & embroidery is sewn in sections, joined by a common thread. If the thread is damaged, it is a possibility that some loss of sequins may occur. Any loose threads must not be pulled as this will result in loss of beading &/or embroidery, instead the end of the thread must be sewn and finished off. It is recommended you take care if wearing jewellery or beaded shoes, they might catch on the beading detail.
We accept VISA, Mastercard and Paypal.
We have return, exchange and refund options available. Please refer to our Online Boutique FAQ for details.
