Inspired by Movies: 27 Dresses
I just loved the wedding dress that Jane's sister Tess (Malin Akerman) was supposed to wear in her wedding to George in the movie 27 Dresses.
It's sweet without being foufy, has a little bling without being over-the-top, and would hide a multitude of sins. And it has pockets! I also love the extra lace that was used around the waistband for the movie version of the dress. It would go beautifully with these modern toile wedding invitations - modern, elegant, with a touch of sporty/casual.
I hunted down the source, and it is the Reese dress from Amsale's Spring 2008 collection. Description: Silk Faille. Faille A-line gown with low sweetheart neckline and crystal beaded inset. Ruched detail at waistline and tulip skirt with sweep train.
There is a list of retail stores that stock Amsale dresses on their website (no Australian locations yet).
P.S. There's a really fun (i.e. silly) online tool to create your perfect bridesmaid dress on the 27 Dresses website.
