1970s White Wedding Gown




At the risk of losing our best friend (since 7th grade, we might add), we are showing you below our all-time favorite wedding photo (not including those where the mother of the bride's eyes were closed in every single photo and the photographer painted them in - a dark brown shark eye - when they were actually baby blue). If any photo so profoundly demonstrates the hazards of a having train on your wedding gown it's this one. And yes, that's a beer can in the groom's hand.  Whether or not you think a foot on the train is a bad omen, you can save yourself the risk and opt for a dress that's beautiful and safe with this one. An classic empire cut with a wide, scooped neckline, the gown consists of a sheer white voile layer over a slightly A-line sheath. With an alencon lace bodice accented with tiny faux pearls and sheer, slim sleeves that end in a beautiful beaded lace split bell cuff, it has just the perfect amount of detail to offset the absence of a train, or as we like to think of it - the disaster waiting to happen trailing behind you. The bottom portion of the gown is accented in lace, and the back has a modified court train that drapes from the high waist and just barely sweeps the floor.  The bust measures 33", empire waist 30", hip 35", shoulder 16", sleeve 24", length 57".Made by Fink Originals, it is in excellent condition. $375
