Remember seeing a preview of this pretty scene over on our Insta Stories last month? Well, we took a little trip out to the Venice Canals here in LA in honor of three gorgeous bridal looks (all available online and in store, BTW) from David’s Bridal. We have to say, the results were pretty spectacular. We really love how each of these pieces below fits with the effortless wedding style so many of our brides are going for in the weddings we share. Relaxed, stylish, and perfectly suited for California weddings and the ah-mazing natural backdrops they provide. Oh, and what’s better than wedding portraits in a canoe filled with flowers… Nothing, simply nothing.
Can we just say how stunning the high neck halter style looks for a modern wedding? This Melissa Sweet wedding dress comes in at under $1K and is available in three shades and sizes from 0-30. It features a fresh silhouette paired with vintage-inspired details like lace and soutache ribbon appliqué.
A backdrop of bougainvillea and peachy tropical blooms is the perfect complement to this gown, if you ask us.
After seeing this dress up close, we have to recommend that you find a way to show off the back. Trust us on this. The full button back and lace details channel that look of vintage elegance without being *too* formal or traditional for a wedding at a more laidback venue.
K, onto look numero dos. Are any of you on the hunt for a reception dress or wedding jumpsuit right about now? Because, Cakies, this is THE jumpsuit.
This one-shoulder crepe wedding jumpsuit is a David’s Bridal exclusive and OMG, it’s so fun. The wide legs and drapey charmeuse bow totally up the chic factor, and honestly, we can so see this as an option for the ceremony, as a reception-only ensemble, or even at one of your bridal events leading up to the big day. Yep, the style is super versatile AND the price makes it even better. Ready for it?
$189.95!!! Did your heart skip a beat?
This jumpsuit also has a removable sash at the waist. We’re really taking the word effortless to heart here.
The concept for our last look was based on this pretty, lace layered wedding dress. It’s such a delicate, elegant gown but we loved the idea of our bride flaunting at a ranch or garden wedding outdoors. Since the eyelash lace, a-line skirt, and delicate beading make it ultra romantic, it really doesn’t need a lot of other details. Beachy waves and natural, bronze makeup from the gals at Fiore Beauty complete this look.
Since blooms are always our fave accessory, this tropical beauty by Stella Bloom Designs stole the show.
Boat full o’ blooms, don’t mind if we do.
These are just a few of the effortless wedding looks you can find both online and in-store at David’s Bridal. Head to their website for deets on the lace halter sheath dress, one-shoulder crepe wedding jumpsuit, eyelash lace wedding dress and more.
