There’s something so charming about the romantic feel of a rustic chic wedding. I can’t help but dream of a perfect day filled with lace wrapped bouquets, Mason jar centerpieces, burlap table runners, chalkboard signs—trust me the list could go on and on. But as much as I adore whimsical rustic décor, the bridal party’s attire is what really makes the whole wedding come together. Whether you’re seeking out a vintage lace look or the soft flow of chiffon, Kennedy Blue bridesmaid dresses and bridal gowns are an easy choice for your rustic affair.
There are two main bridesmaid looks we absolutely drool over when it comes to a rustic wedding style. We can’t help but obsess over soft blush tones and dark, vintage lace for an outdoor or barnyard setting. Luckily, Kennedy Blue bridesmaid dresses cover both of these bases.
Our blush chiffon dresses are flowy, flattering, and the perfect pink hue to go with a palette of soft neutrals or deep charcoals. The chiffon styles can be mixed and matched with eight various necklines so each of your ‘maids can have a style that flatters her best! Not that into the blush? We also love Kennedy Blue bridesmaid dresses in the colors charcoal, coral, wine, eggplant, and navy for a rustic theme.
Available in two different styles, a v-neckline and a lace illusion neckline, our navy lace bridesmaid dresses are a stunning combination of sophistication and rustic chic. The navy color and lace styles are not only flattering for every figure, but work on any skin tone as well.
The blush chiffon and navy lace dresses can be gorgeously styled with ivory pearls, low heels, or even lace TOMS for a cute, casual, and rustic look. For a hairstyle to match, we like big curls, braids, loose buns, and headbands to tie the whole theme together!
Since lace is always a fabulous choice for an outdoor event, Kennedy Blue bridal gowns Nicole and Carolyn were our top picks for a rustic look. Nicole features a flattering a-line frame with all-over vintage lace and a feminine, high illusion neckline. This gown is perfect for the modest bride seeking a fun and sophisticated look. Carolyn, on the other hand, is a bit more whimsical with its delicate lace bodice (that features a hint of sparkle!) and flowing organza bottom that creates a light and airy feel—perfect for an outdoor event.
Pair either of these gowns with a simple-edged veil, to bring a soft and romantic feel to your bridal attire. Want something even a bit more unique? Tea-length dresses are a fun and vintage style that brides are becoming extremely fond of. Consider having your Kennedy Blue bridal gown Nicole or Carolyn hemmed for a classic 1950’s look!

Styling your besties in mismatched bridesmaid dresses has been a huge trend for the past few years. And as popular as it still is, we’re slowly starting to see brides revert to having all of their girls dressed in the same style. So how do you decide what’s best for your own wedding? Here are some points to get you thinking about whether you should go the route of mismatched bridesmaid dresses or styling your girls in all the same look.
Romantic, elegant, and totally on-trend; we’re currently obsessing over Bordeaux bridesmaid dresses! Inspired by Marsala, Pantone’s 2016 color of the year, our newest color was created out of the need for a deep red with a romantic pink undertone. Literally, you guys, this color is everything we’ve ever dreamt of! Flattering on literally every skin tone, we think this is a color that your bridesmaids are easily going to fall in love with!
In my opinion, choosing your wedding colors is one of the hardest wedding decisions you’ll have to make. If you’re anything like me, you’re indecisive, overwhelmed by the amount of gorgeous color options, and your color preferences change on a weekly basis. How’s a girl to choose!?
Taking Your Measurements
For the most accurate measurements, do not measure over your clothing. Your measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress. The measuring tape shouldn't be pulled too tight or have too much slack, and should always be parallel with the floor.
**Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so keep in mind that it's not uncommon to find yourself requiring alterations.
Bust size: Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).
Waist size: While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. Take the measurement where the natural crease happens in your side. This should be a few inches above your belly button.
Hip size: Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.
Choosing your correct size
Compare these three measurements to the Kennedy Blue size chart above. It is very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements. For example, if your bust measures 40.5" (size 12), your waist measures 31" (size 10) and your hips measure 41.5" (size 8), we advise that you order a size 12, and get your dress altered down to custom fit your body. Ordering anything smaller than a size 12 would not fit in the bust area. Please note: Our bridal gown size chart is different than the bridesmaids sizing and is listed below.
