Wedding Attire

The soft ivory silk cascaded from the cap sleeves to the floor. There was delicate beading entwined with a simple lace covering the empire bodice and growing from the bottom, ending in petal shapes. From the waist fell a small waterfall of lace and pearls, narrow at the top and wider at the bottom. The smoothness of the pearls contrasted deliciously with the roughness of the lace, providing a canvas full of texture. It hung lightly, brushing skin with every movement. The train echoed the design of the dress and played off of the waterfall by creating a pool for it to fall into comfortably. The length of the train was detachable.

The bridesmaids wore simple empire waist dresses: a sheath of silk covered by georgette, both a deep blue. The only detailing was a small white ribbon of roses that followed the top of the camisole. The dresses could be tied back to fit each individual as needed. The bridesmaids and bride wore strappy silver sandals or heels. The men wore standard suits from Men’s Warehouse. They had deep blue vests.
