Recently, one of my friends hired me to style her for her brother's summer wedding. The June Chicago wedding will be a casual affair with the ceremony being held in an old church and the reception will be in a vintage furniture warehouse. Sounds amazing right?
Well here is where the plot thickens. My friend was chosen as the one and only bridesmaid and asked to wear cherry red. Now red is a color not everyone can pull off. As someone with very similar coloring as my friend, I knew that finding just the right shade would be key.
My friend and I worked together on a mini-brief for the assignment which included things like sizes, budget, watch-outs, etc. Although she gave me very clear guardrails, I find that it helps to see options to narrow the focus. I mean, I cannot be the only person whose wedding dress is completely different than what they had in my mind originally ;)
Here are some of the dresses that I virtually pulled for my friend (above and below). As you can see, they are all classic in their pursuits as that is very much my friend's style.
|Dress 6 (no longer available), Dress 7 (no longer available), Dress 8, Dress 9|
|Dress 10, Dress 11, Dress 12|
Up next are the shoes. Check back in in the next couple of weeks to see the options I pulled and which she chose!
