OK, Gals, as a follow-up to the 1 gown 2 gown thread...

And putting aside whether you would actually have the nerve to really do it...

If you could (or could have) got married in ANY GOWN except a ''proper'' wedding gown, which one would it be? Links or pics please! Or at least describe it for us.

I love my Rivini gown, and will not be buying another...

However, a strapless slim a line with a dipped neckline (not a full sweetheart) in a HEAVY matte silk satin with a dramatically dropped waist with silk Alencon lace cumberbun (how do yo spell that) starting right under the bust and matte satin bow right at the natural waist. With a matching Alencon lace border at the bottom of the gown. No crystals or anything... just lace and matte sillk satin in silk white.

I''ve actually seen almost this exact gown somewhere... but it was after I bought my Rivini. Which I love.

So easy!


"Bliss", by Reem Acra. It''s something like $6,000 and I wasn''t going to spend that much, but I still love it.

(In the picture below, it''s the pale blue dress in the middle.)

The funny thing is, I'm not a poofy princess dress kind of girl at all. But I think this one is stunning. If I was a millionaire and getting married on a beach, this would be my choice.

what do you mean not a ''proper'' wedding gown?
I think she means a non-traditional gown (something that isn''t long and white/ivory).

Me neither!! But I''m a sucker for this one from Timeless Bridal. But I would do it in burnt orange (like we were talking about in the other thread)

Musey,

I love the shape of that dress. It''s so feminine.

Okay - this is gonna seem weird LOL And I really don't think I could pull it off... but there is something about *this* gown that I just LOVE!! It would go so well with my ring too LOL I wish there were bigger pics....
http://home.att.net/~design-house/gowns/american_gothic/volcon/american_gothic_volcon.htm

I found it when I was looking for hairstyles for KC and it might be my fav gown of all time LOL

ETA:
This one is kinda cool too - like the back more than the front... http://home.att.net/~design-house/gowns/alt/sedona_rose/alt_vintage_uncommon_godess_sedona1a.htm

but what do I know? hehe I got married in white shorts and birkenstocks ;-)

It''s a stunning dress, musey!

My anything-but-traditional wedding dress would be... Silk, dark red, sweetheart neckline and pick-ups. Wouldn''t fit the wedding I''m planning, but that''s not the point, is it?

Oooooh! Ah! Ladies, I am drooling! And I don''t even know what Alencon lace IS!

EBree I love that blue Reem Acra!


And Musey, that gown in orange would be too fabulous.


Cehra: that''s awesome that you got married in shorts and Birkies. Where were you?

reem acra also makes a more traditional version of this dress called diamante. LOVED it! it was one of my contenders. so spectacluar.
i tried in on in ivory/gold. the back was divine and the sparkle, stunning. nothing sparkles like this dress.

If this had come out in time, I might have forsaken my strapless ban to wear this beauty.

Monique Lhuillier''s Spring/Summer 2003 line for sure!! Or possibly Hanna Hartnell.

There are three I like. Escape, Laura, and Barbie. I wanted a silk, slinky, backless dress...which is what I ended up with, I just got a cheaper version and not the $3,000 Monique.

Escape:

I really like short dresses -clearly- for young girls getting married (like myself!)
I think they are young and fresh and dont take them selves too seriously

Yuma County Courthouse LOL
Here''s a pic of my perfect wedding outfit :D We had a renewal on our 2nd anniversary in san francisco that was *slightly* more conventional if you consider that I let my maids wear whatever they wanted as long as it was solid white and we all went barefoot :)
BTW this was many many moons ago and the only thing I''d do differently is wear a more flattering bra and shirt!!!! I was going for comfort in the mid summer heat... the husband is wearing vans and in the ceremony pics you can see his oakleys hanging on the back of his shirt hahaha Can you tell I''d been laughing and crying all morning?? He looks like such a baby!!! His face has filled out and he has a goatee and some grey hair now...

Cehra! Could you both look any cuter? And any happier? I THINK NOT!
And gee whiz do you both ever look... 12 years old! Great genes if you can get ''em.

I am loving the gown ideas. MMM Those short Monique dresses are beautiful and so elegant / sassy. I would love somehting like that.

Mercoledi I wonder whether a woman could actually WALK in that dress! It''s gorgeous, though. And what a colour! I have a skirt like that, where I have to take baby steps, and can''t climb into taxis properly wihtout painstakingly hitching it up. Looks great (except for the hitching part!). Not so practical.

I thought I''d add pictures of the red pick-up dress I talked about... I''d have it made in silk, of course.






Not sure how it would look on me and it certainly isn''t appropriate for the wedding we''re having... But

I think the skirt is more forgiving in real life, the runway pics make it look do-able.

Anyhoo, this is Knottie Mrs.Incredible2 in her amazing red and gold dress with organza hood:

I think she deserves to be in the running for World''s most Fabulous gown.
Check out her maids'' shoes!

Anchor, wow that red dress is wild! I wonder how much it weighs!

And I just mercoledi''s post. That wedding actually looks like fun. You can just tell the bride is a riot to be around. Love the sunglasses in the pic.

Bravesfan: that is a stunner for sure, as far as traditional gowns go. But would you wear it in purple?!
