Wedding Dress of the Week

Feminine and heavenly are words that come to mind when I see this wedding gown by celebrated designer Junko Yoshioka. I love the layers of silk netting and the perfectly hand placed alencon lace on the bodice. Finish your look with dropped pearl and diamond (or CZ) earrings and a raw edge, 2 layer, fingertip length veil. Keep your hair down, or clip just the front back, and add soft curls.

This wedding dress is BRAND-NEW with Tags at www.encorebridal.com.

Originally purchased at Saks Fifth Avenue for $3740, Encore Bridal's discounted price is $2800. Save almost $1000! Now you can purchase those letterpress invitations you've been eyeing.

A Thought For Your Wedding Day

What greater thing is there for two human souls
than to feel they are joined for life-
To strengthen each other in all labours,
To rest on each other in all sorrows,
To minister to each other in all pain,
To be one with each other in the silent, unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting?

-George Eliot-
