My wedding gown pick for this week is unique, flattering, and surprisingly affordable!
This hand cut flower one-shoulder gown by Tadashi Shoji retails for just $798, which is fabulously affordable for a wedding gown!
The dreamy feel of this one-shoulder gown is captured by the beautiful ornamentation of hand cut flowers that gracefully cascade down the dress. Each flower has a hand-beaded center for a touch of sparkle. Vertical pleating lengthens and slims your silhouette while a sweeping train completes the look.
This statement gown is best styled with minimal jewelry and simple, classic hair and makeup.
