American bridal designer, Vera Wang, famously expressed that a woman is never sexier than when she is comfortable in her clothes. I couldn’t agree more. You should be comfy.
The good news is you don’t have to square off style, class and beauty in the name of comfort.
Take Nicky for example. This beautiful bride regarded comfort above all else. She wanted something elegant and vintage- inspired. All these ideas were combined into a dusty pink dress with a beautifully beaded tulle bodice and layered tulle skirt. I don’t know if you can see it on the pics, but the tulle had a gorgeous, unique rose motif. That was really something special. The classic lower cut V-neck and back line was lined with a scanty strip of Chantilly lace. Not sure about you, but I really LOVE the layered look at the back of the skirt.
Nicky has such an endearing, soft and delicate quality about her – and I think her dress was just an outward reflection of the beauty she holds within.
