... And You Wanted a { Gown} ...


Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy's wedding dress worn Sept.12, 1953 when she married John F. Kennedy; displayed at JFK Library and Museum in 2003 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of their wedding; probably will not be displayed again in this way because the weight of the dress is causing the fabric to tear. My hope is that they find a very good dry cleaner that specializes in the cleaning and storing of fabulous gowns, such as this.

This breathtaking gown in not to be upstaged by this stunning Van Cleef and Arpel engagement ring that consists of a 2.88 carat diamond flanked by a 2.84 carat emerald and tapered baquettes...Hello, Mr President!

Violarulz,

Thanx for the vendor info. I would love to do an blog interview with your friend about the aftercare for wedding gowns.
