Having had featured this particular wedding dress in at least a couple of posts published last year —
I think you can say I still haven’t had enough of how beautifully elegant Grace Kelly looked on her big day because, here I am, talking about it yet again.
This certainly gives us a better look at the elegant wedding dress that makes me want to get married all over again but this time, in it.
The Grace Kelly wedding dress was on display in an art museum in Philadelphia when this photo was taken. And if you visit the thread, a comment shared a few bits about the wedding dress which I also want to share with you.
According to Flickr user angelina_thera, the wedding dress was made by costume designer Helen Rose who also worked for movie studios in the US. According to wikipedia, the wedding dress was worked on for six weeks by three dozen seamstresses. Also, the veil was made by nuns from some European convent. Though, I can’t seem to find anything to support the last bit. I did, however, found more details about Grace Kelly’s wedding dress:
The wedding gown was made from antique Valenciennes rose point lace, twenty-five yards of silk taffeta and ninety eight yards of tulle. Her veil was covered with appliquéd lace lovebirds and thousands of seed pearls. (Source)
Again, if you ladies feel like taking on a vintage wedding theme and would want something elegant enough that it’s fit for royalty, sit up and take notes!
