We’re so excited to show off this beautiful rustic chic wedding! The cobalt blue color theme that they chose is absolutely gorgeous so check it out!
Matt and Lauren’s romance began during their college years at Clemson and blossomed into an effortless love story. What began on somewhat of a blind date turned out to be nothing that either Matt or Lauren expected. They celebrated their love among friends and family at the Revel Events Center in Greenville, South Carolina. From Matt and Lauren’s decor to the ambiance of the wedding, truly nothing went wrong on their special day.
Matt and Lauren’s floral arrangements were mixed peonies, roses and other delicate flowers all of pastel colors. The theme of their July 1st wedding was “rustic glam” and captured everything that Matt and Lauren had hoped to have for their magical wedding day. The brick details of their unique venue matched their wedding theme perfectly.
Lauren and Matt’s accent color was cobalt blue and was also the color of Lauren’s eight bridesmaids’ dresses. The color was perfect for summer, and complimented all of the bridesmaids in such a flattering way. Their night ended romantically with a sparkler send off from their friends and family.

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.
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.
Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).
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. Stand up straight and do not “suck in” when taking this measurment.
Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.
Depending on the fabric, a dress can be altered down up to 2 full sizes, but can be very difficult to let out as there is only about .5 inch of fabric to do so at the seams.
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.
