Light Up the Night... in a FiberOptic Wedding Gown

Here's something really unusual for your outdoor evening wedding. Faernyn's Grove is selling a FiberOptic Wedding Gown with an illuminated train. Place your cursor over the image to see the effect. The strapless gown is made of environmentally friendly HempSilk, and brides can choose to shine in white, red, yellow or green, or... order multiple LEDs, and change your look throughout the reception. I love the idea of a red or blue twinkling train for a Fourth of July outdoor wedding.
