Hypothetical Upon Hypothetical

If I were in the market for a wedding dress (which I'm not) and I were about a size 6 (which I'm not) and I had a budget of about $1500 for a wedding dress (which I didn't even when I was in the market for a wedding dress), I'd be looking real hard at this lovely gown from Shrimpton Couture

She's got all the details, so you should really check out her writeup. This is just one gorgeous dress, and I don't think it was originally intended as a bridal gown, which somehow makes it better. (Not sure why, it just does.)

The lovely champagne color makes this a nice gown for an evening wedding. Think candlelight …

I love the intricate work and the neckline looks cool. The texture and the color looks ravishing and beautiful.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dolxfld6uQE It has a mysterious beauty to it. With the right accessories we can make heads turn with this one.

I love the skirt. The whole thing looks so sleek and understated, without being blah. And the fabric is stunning.

I think it combines traditional colour and style that crosses over to a slightly modern look , quite a good result i think

It makes it better in my eyes because the wedding gown industry seems like such a racket.

Vintage wedding dresses are a hot trend among young brides today. But… I could see a mature bride wearing this dress. Nowadays, everything is strapless and most older brides want something with a little more coverage.
