This advertisement, from Modern Bride (winter, 1955), portrays a wedding gown  which
is highly emblematic of The Era, with its large bouffant tea-length skirt that hints at fabulous petticoats underneath!


Ken found this very special bridal gown in

Sunday Newsday of 18 Mar 07


Full sized


Dior, fall 2004

This is a  special bride from Kristi:

"Seeing this beauty running in her gown - she obviously
knows it well enough to lift it and the crinolines and run -
NOT an easy feat for many gowns.  How many of us could do
 that...  er...  would love to try that? 
Another lost art perhaps.

Misha has discovered a Parisian bridal gown site (Cymbeline) that offers some quite unique creations, as sampled here.
