It's your special day. Wear... balloons?-
Vera Wang is designing Kim Kardashian's wedding gown. Kate Middleton's fabulous wedding dress by Alexander McQueen creative designer Sarah Burton cost more than $400,000. The dresses are stunning, but most brides can't afford custom-made couture, and even an off-the-rack dress can cost thousands of dollars. Luckily for those who don't want to go the mass market route yet still want a one-of-a kind dress to wear on the Big Day, there is another option-and at a fraction of the price a princess might pay.

The catch? These gorgeous gowns aren't made of silk or satin or lace-they're made out of balloons. Hundreds and hundreds of balloons. less
