Suki Waterhouse Bridal Look

strapless ruffled ballgown

Although these dresses are from a Met Gala long ago we still covet both these iconic looks. If either of the dresses were in white, they could easily be mistaken for bridal gowns. Especially Suki Waterhouse’s strapless Burberry soft pink, layered silk organza dress. Perfectly paired with a relaxed bun and white gold sparkly cluster earrings.

If you too are wearing strapless ruffled wedding gown, a relaxed up do combined with smaller statement style earrings like these is really a show stopping bridal look. Photographs of Suki and Allison by Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images

Allison William’s fitted tank strap gown paired with a weaved necklace and small studs looks beyond elegant. Taking a style cue from Allison, go with a stud style earring when opting for a fitted style necklace.

Wow worthy wedding

From Naturally Yours Events: Amanda and Dan’s wedding was a truly intimate, artistic affair with amazing food and incredible drinks. The couple wanted their wedding to feel true to themselves, seeing as they met in Chicago and got engaged at an art gallery. So, it’s no surprise that they hosted a 40 person wedding at the restaurant, Boarding House, with a dinner reception that would blow everyone’s socks off.

A Unique Space to Say I Do

The ceremony was on the top floor, where the bride walked down the stairway aisle, passing eclectic framed antlers that were adorned with pops of romantic florals true to their color palette (soft pinks, bold greens, and navy).  Amanda and Dan exchanged their I Dos beneath a unique art installation of suspended wine bottles.

Their venue exudes a friendly, relaxed charm on every level with its tall windows overlooking the city of Chicago, modern green and grey printed wallpaper, and rustic farmhouse tables and chairs. It was the perfect compromise to the modern vision Dan had and the earthy feel Amanda wanted.
