Here we have another gorgeous 1930’s vintage wedding gown. You can tell the era by the hip hugging mermaid like skirt. A nice deep v-neck with ruffle sleeves adds a simple touch of elegance to make you feel like a Hollywood bride. No way to tell if this is her husband or a vampire in the photo, but vintage gowns are sure to attract even the most soulless of men. 🙂
