And then there is Amsale. How awesome is she?! I've fallen in love with some of her non-lace pieces, surprisingly. Check them out.
How about the sophistication of Kenneth Pool gowns? I love them, even if they don't have enough lace for me and may be more princess than I desire to be at this point in my life. Nonetheless, Kenneth Pool gowns are beautiful!
The gowns below are all gowns I plan to try on before I decide to go with the custom-designed gown. I'm thinking if I do all of these try-ons before the end of the summer 2010, I'll have more than enough time to design the gown and have it sketched and find a designer (already have a few in mind) and it made in time for the wedding in 2011. What gowns are you swooning over?
