Featured Style: A Simple Elegant Wedding Dress

by Danielle Salazar November 06, 2014

From rounded shoulders and gathered sleeves to dramatic trains and sheath silhouettes, bridal trends come and go--and we can't say that it's always a bad thing! With so many unique styles over the years, it's no wonder why so many brides look back at their wedding pictures and think, "What the heck was I wearing?" Simple and elegant wedding dresses are an easy (and gorgeous!) way to avoid future dress-regret. Consider Kennedy Blue's Savannah. This classic and timeless silk gown will never go out of style and is a perfect blank canvas for creating your own look. Regardless of venue, this dress is perfect for walking down the aisle and saying "I do!"

A simple and elegant wedding dress you'll love.

In my eyes, Savannah is beyond perfect. Made from a luxe silk fabric, this fit-and-flare bridal gown will complement your figure in every way. With the strapless, sweetheart neckline and its fitted silhouette, this style beautifully creates curves for girls with less shape, while also accentuating curvier figures in all the right ways. I bet you never thought that a silk dress would be so flattering for any shape!

Styling Kennedy Blue Savannah.

Savannah is a style I refer to as a blank canvas. Its simplicity is by no means a bad thing, but allows you to really make the dress your own! I've seen this gown worn in every setting, from a formal cathedral to an intimate beach ceremony--and not once did it look out of place.

In need of some sparkle? Adding a beaded belt will accentuate your waist and add a fun focal point to your simple and elegant wedding dress. The sweetheart neckline also creates a perfect shape for a fun statement necklace or dramatic earring.

If support is something you're looking for, don't be afraid to add straps! This is a familiar task for seamstresses, so as long as you provide the fabric, they should be able to work their magic. Think beaded, lace, silk, spaghetti, keyhole...the options are endless!

Veils are an easy way to add flair to a simple dress. Choose a long, cathedral veil for a formal look, or a beaded-edge veil adds the perfect amount of bling! Not only are they a fun accessory to complete your bridal look, but how many times have you seen a Pinterest picture of a bridal veil flowing in the wind that you are obsessed with re-creating? Yup...guilty!

Measurement Guide

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.
