I also love this gown by Claire Pettibone with couture European embroidery and antique lace.While I'm personally not a big fan of strapless gowns (I look awful in them), I love this polka-dotted dress. Wouldn't it be perfect for a garden wedding?
This Monique Lhuillier gown is one of my favorites. While I'm not crazy about how the dress is pulled up in the front, I love the ribbon sash and sleeves. When I began looking online when we first got engaged, I loved this gown. I was new to the whole wedding scene though and had no idea as to how much gowns cost. I emailed the store to see how much it was, since there wasn't any pricing listed (which I now know = expensive). It STARTED at $10,000, that's plus alterations and whatever the other fees might be like tax. I couldn't believe it. The store was Kleinfeld Bridal and anyone who has watched Say Yes to the Dress, you have an idea of the cost of a gown there. This was before the tv show when I was searching for my dress and I had no idea what it meant to go to Kleinfeld's for a gown. I'm so happy that I ended up going to Adrian Pierce Couture in my hometown though. They were amazing and I absolutely love my gown. They're having a big sample sale right now, so check them out if you're looking for a dress.
This is a real bride in the gown (from The Knot).
I've posted about Stephanie James before and here she is again because I just adore her tea-length gowns. They're so much fun! I especially love this Aubry dress with the blue crinoline underneath.
Did you wear a vintage wedding gown? Have you come across a vintage-looking wedding dress online? Post a link in the comments - I'd love to see it! : )
