Jessica is a vision of timeless elegance and looks simply divine wearing Mon Cheri Bridals Lourdes (Style No. 115229) for her Chicago wedding. In the words of the beautiful bride…
“When I started looking at wedding gowns, I knew I wanted something different than what I’d seen in the magazines. To me, the Lourdes combines understated old Hollywood glam with feminine romance. And, the first time that I tried it on, it became my number one pick for months. I tried on several other gowns but in the back of my mind I always I knew it was the one.
What drew me to this dress was its shape – it skims my curves without adding volume. My favourite part, and what makes it so unique, is the distinctive color combination. The soft mocha underlay lets the French-inspired lace steal the show – you can see all of the intricate details because of the contrast. To top it off, the illusion train provided just enough drama for me, giving the dress a sort of understated allure.
Our wedding ceremony was small and private in a brick loft space with lots of wood and candlelight, so this dress was a lovely complement to the look and feel we were going for. It easily transitioned to our cocktail-party style reception on the rooftop overlooking the Chicago skyline. And the true hero of this gown? Those beautiful cap sleeves – they have that modern vintage feel and kept the dress at bay as I danced all night!
I love my dress so much that I wore it for the trick-or-treaters during our first Halloween in our new rustic suburban farmhouse. As a Halloween fanatic, dressing up as a corpse bride in the dress I adore so much seemed extremely fitting!”
