Being that the wedding is in Louisiana, in what is our early Summer season, there is no way you will see this future bride in heavy beading, an overly poufy Cinderella dress, etc.
Looking at Jenna Bush’s beautiful ranch wedding, I love how comfortable and beautiful she looks in her dress. Of course, her dress was thousands, probably, but at the same time, I would love a look similar to that. I would love to be comfortable, elegant and of course, in budget.
When I started dress shopping, I had a certain look in mind. I wanted sleeves because I need something to hold the dress up so I’m not pulling it up to keep the gals in check all day. I also felt that I couldn’t pull the look off well either (thinks nightmarish senior prom). I also wanted little to no beading, because beads add weight, and in the summer, who really wants that?
Here were the styles I had in mind when I started dress shopping.
I’m not in fashion but no beading screams my name here. While this isn’t like Jenna Bush’s dress, this quickly became my front runner. It’s just so simple with a bit of volume, but not too much. I love the neckline and the way it bunches up in all the right places. Simple and beautiful!
This gown looks like something that would be worn to an outdoors wedding. It’s a dress with really the same volume as option 1, but the lightness of the dress looks like something that I could walk around all day in, but still feel like a bride.
This dress is very similar to the option 2 dress above, however, I think the fabric looks nicer, and I like the neckline more. It also looks to flatter the model a lot more, but they have different bodies so I’m not sure. Very springy/summery and light but elegant as well!
Did you have a look or dress in mind when you went dress shopping?
