I have Amy Pond's wedding dress!
dwellsinshells
The dress is by designer Ben de Lisi, and I luffs it. It is also the same dress that Amy Pond wore in her wedding on doctor who season five. I am going to wear it for my wedding. Mine is a size 14, which is a US size 12, approximately. Its a teeny bit loose, but I am going to wait a little while before having it taken in so that I don't have to do it twice if/when I lose some weight.

The getting of the dress is a good story. I desperately wanted this dress but didn't know where to find it. No one had it anymore and the few ebay auctions I found were all sold or expired. I had given up and was resigned to just finding something close and modifying it when I noticed something that looked similar on ebay while just going through the listings. I clicked it and realized that it was the exact dress, labeled only as strapless wedding dress size 14, no mention of the designer or Amy. It was in the last fifteen minutes of auction and in my exact dress size. The lady didn't even know how cool it was, and had simply gotten another one. I snatched it up, and panicked a little because it said pick-up only and she was in england. I was seriously prepared to take my fiance and fly to get it, or have someone pick it up and mail it to me, but she was nice enough to mail it to me anyway. We then had a panic about the fact that it took weeks to get here, but it is here at last.




The dress has a lot more detail in person than you can see in the pictures online or in the episode. There are sequins scattered sparingly in between the flowers and the overall effect is very pretty. The tule is surprisingly soft and heavy. I expected it to be stiffer and more scratchy, but it hangs very well this way.




My fiance knows that I don't really like diamonds so he got me an amber and amethyst engagement ring. I luffs him more than my dress. Our wedding is going to be extremely Brittish considering that the ring also came from England and our entire wedding is going to be themed after Doctor Who.




The dress is a wee bit long for me. I'm going to wear very tall shoes and pray for balance, and also probably have it shortened a bit in the front at least. It is meant to have a bit of a gap above the ground in the front, like here.

Awesome that you happened upon the dress, it looks wonderful on you! Best wishes.

It looks great on you! Congrats on the lucky find!

Thanks for the details shots, it really is a beautiful dress. You're going to be such a lovely bride! Hope you'll also share pictures of your DW themed wedding party.

I don't know if it's really so much *meant* to have a bit of a gap above the ground in front so much as that it's designed for an average height woman and Karen is tall, but it does look very nice either way.

I love that your search had a very happy ending. You have helped my fall in love with it too, thanks for posting the designer as well.

You're so lucky! I've been looking for the dress as well, for the exact same thing actually - My fiance & I are having a DW wedding as well, and I was hoping to find this dress, but so far no luck at all :(

You look fantastic in it! I can only hope for the same thing of myself IF I manage to find one! lol.
If you don't mind me asking, what wording did you use when searching? Cause I haven't been getting anything at all anywhere :(

Omg you didn`t posted someting since 2010 but I need to ask you something and hope, you´re not dead or anything... (sorry I´m german+english= x__X)
I want to make her dress so I wanted to know, If you know, if it´s white or ivory? When you don´t know and you have the dress.. could you make a photo with a white sheet and the dress?
Or do you know how the dress name is +__+?
It would be soo nice if you could answer me : (
