The bride wore the Sky Between the Branches wedding dress, which features an illusion neckline and matte sequins. According to Women's Wear Daily, the designer "was besieged with phone calls Sunday and Monday from buyers looking for the $4,700 laser-cut floral gown." Her website picked up 26,000 unique visitors Monday; an average day sees around 1,500 uniques.

Here are six more Claire Pettibone wedding dresses. (The top is from her Spring 2013 collection, the next four are Fall 2012, and the final one is Spring 2012.) Do you find these equally as enchanting as Priscilla's dress?

I think No. 2 is my fave!

p.s. Claire had NO idea Priscilla picked her dress before she saw photos! (This makes me like Priscilla even more, because it means she wasn't shmoozing for a free dress, which plenty of people would do in her shoes!)

I am sure that the designer here paid big money to get this blurb in MSN. What is tacky, pointless, idiotic is the petty, catty and ultimately stupid remarks that form the text.

Pricilla Chan Zuckerberg is a beautiful woman enjoying the greatest day of her life and this bunch of Pomeranians who want attention and to show off their bridal gowns are despicable.,

I love #4....I think it's my favorite...though I find all of them very tasteful & delicate.  If only other designers could learn from this.

we can learn a thing or two from a billionnaire and his wife. her dress only cost $4,700. most of us who could make minimum wage or who could barely pay our pills who wanna spend $10,000 on a dress.
