Facebook stock might be losing value, but everyone wants a piece of Claire Pettibone, the wedding dress designer behind the dress worn by Priscilla Chan, who married Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in a surprise ceremony over the weekend.

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.

And don’t overlook gowns intended for bridesmaids—or even prom season. A simple, unfussy dress becomes wedding-worthy with some sparkly accessories and veil.
