Jenna’s wedding dress preview! shhhh..

Categories   Wedding Fashion

We have to say, it has been such a fun time opening the emails our friend Jenna sends us with her wedding inspiration tidbits. The latest one is insane. Ruffles, pleats, pink poofy layers, soft feather plumes and shiny prize ribbons. Jenna’s dress is being crafted as we speak by her talented sister, Sarah (hello, handmade!!), who studied fashion design at the Chicago Art Institute. Sarah is also currently working on her own line due to be finished this summer (more to come on that later). Behold – a feast of sugary delights:


and then there are the sketches… maybe you should sit down?


Uh yea, we can’t wait to see it in person either. How amaaazing is this?!

The dress in the first picture is to die for! All that sparkle...! *sigh*

Christine on Dec 28, 2009

Um, yeah I love all the horse ribbons- wish I hadn't thrown all mine out! I could have re-purposed them into something beautiful. Love her inspiration and dresses- layers of tulle and netting are so pretty.

Lynn on Jan 27, 2010

Ohhhh... I love the dress with the multi-colour tulle in the first picture at the 2nd row. May I know where do you get this picture?

keven on Sep 15, 2010

good ,I like white wedding dresses

hillary on Jan 3, 2011

i know your probably looking for upbeat comments here, but i cant help but say that the photo of the multicolored tule and sparkly heels are of my dress and my feet. my husband and i had a private ceremony for the sake of keeping our day private, yet our photographer released our photos to all the wedding industry bloggers... which really really sucks. seeing our photos such as this one on the internet when its meant to be private makes me sad and sick :(

atiggys on Jan 24, 2011

Absolute breath-taking dress with all the color.
