This makes me smile...

...not because I care about weddings, or even wedding dresses, but simply because I give this lovely lady props for wearing this bat-sh*t crazy, off-beat gown at her wedding. It totally looks like a Barbie dress I had in the 80's. I would so wear this! Why can't there be prom after 30??



It definitely comes in at a close second to my favorite wedding dress -- the red, frothy number worn by Winona Ryder in Beetlejuice...

I've always loved Wynona's red dress in that movie, and I thought I was the only one! When I was little I used to dress up like her.

Gorgeous dress, you're right about having a prom after 30...closest thing I get to that now are company Christmas parties and they're not nearly as fun to dress for :)

Hi there-oh yes, I'm loving it too, the froth and the colours are fantastic!!

Tara -- She was mine, too! I wanted a dress just like that for my wedding. My mom said it would probably kill both my grandmothers, ha ha! I still do plan not to wear white, though.
