Madonna’s Wedding Dress when she married Sean Penn is up for auction!

Madonna has never been one to conform, like her or loathe her or believe she should wear more clothes! she has always stuck to who she is and wants to be… and for that I applaud her.

This has been ever so clear in her choice of wedding dresses.

In the mid 80’s Madonna married Sean Penn in this dress…and yes that is a veil on a bowler hat!

I’m not over-the-top about this dress, although I do love the tulle skirt, but what I love is that Madonna brought HER to the dress.

If you fancy spending $40k-$60k this dress is currently available to buy on Julien Live Auction now.

So tell me:

  • Have you/would you do something unique to make your wedding dress your own?
  • Do you think wedding dresses should be classic, or used as a basis to create another reflection of your wedding day?

I’d love to know what you think?

Alkikat, shared her crochet creation via Reddit and it is by far one of the must beautiful handmade pieces I have seen! I love the way she has paired it was a gorgeous lawn green sash, and the kick out at the bottom makes her look like she’s just risen from the ground like a goddess!
