DecadencePast is happy to offer this Romantic 70s Vintage Wedding Dress / Gown in Royal Juliet or Kate style from Gunne Sax - Ivory Size S to XS.

Vintage 1970's just after the successful remake film "Romeo & Juliet"...

The cut of this bodice & classic neckline also hint of the clean lines of Princess Kate's wedding dress.

Label: "GUNNE SAX by Jessica SAN FRANCISCO" - no size or content tags (it's swishy, stiff taffeta with satin & chemical lace accents) ~ smalll to extra small (couldn't zip the back on my dress form), so please check measurements carefully.

Full length skirt has wide ruffle flounce at hemline & an attached belt that tying in back. Gown is shown without a crinoline or petticoat, so you can see it holds shape well. Sleeves are puffed at the top. Basque waistline is trimmed in satin ribbon. Princess seaming, pintucks,tiny looped buttons and simple, but elegant trims up the front add understated elegance befitting a princess. The neckline is deep cut to a high collar - all trimmed in faux pearls.

This lovely ivory gown closes with an "insert" nylon zipper running from the bum up to just between the shoulder blades... allowing that regal neckline to stand up in back (another similarity to Kate's gown).

Structural condition is absolutely MINT with all trims present and sound & no tears, broken seams, etc... but it does have a few faint water marks (nothing tragic) along the ruffle flounce in the lower skirt, so I recommend having it cleaned for your special day. I'd have it cleaned myself; but unfortunately the only items my local cleaner's good at are down sleeping bags, Pendleton shirts, and woolen hunting jackets.

This comes from a smoke free home.

I'll be listing several more cocktail and formal wear suitable for wedding dresses in the coming month, so if you're looking for something special, please feel free to convo me. I also am pleased to stock real vintage jewelry items suitable for a bride: https://www.etsy.com/listing/119510504/gatsby-inspired-vintage-double-strand?ref=shop_home_active

This gown comes from a smoke free environment. Many brides choose to have their vintage gowns professionally cleaned before the wedding, but this dress is in suitable condition to wear as is with just some necessary steaming to remove "travel wrinkles" from shipping.

DELIVERY is prompt & careful - I ship same or next business day following payment. NOTE: the postage shown is for boxed delivery - if you instead intend on having it professionally cleaned and/or steamed before using the gown; you may wish to have it shipped in a large, waterproof tyvek envelope for a lesser cost - if so, please convo me before purchase for a delivery quote based on a lighter weight.
