Featured on BrideStory | Emily + Caleb

by Kennedy Blue March 02, 2018

Caleb and Emily met through mutual friends and their friendship quickly became a love story. Caleb proposed to Emily in such a romantic way, they enjoyed dinner at their favorite restaurant and then went to the top of Cold Mountain in Virginia. After pouring Emily a glass of wine, he gave her an engraved bible with her future last name on it. Before Emily could thank him, Caleb was down on one knee asking Emily to spend the rest of her life with him.

Their wedding day was the most beautiful and joyous day of their life thus far. The weather was perfect and they celebrated while being surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains. It meant the world to the newlyweds that their family and friends came from around the country to celebrate them and share in their special day.

Emily and Caleb’s reception was in a large, beautiful barn and their overall design was effortless and classic. Bridesmaids wore slate blue dresses from Kennedy Blue that tied in with the overall color scheme. Being surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains really added to their wedding decor. The floral arrangements were cream, burgundy and designed with lots of greenery. Emily and Caleb both had ten close friends standing next to them during their wedding, which was one of their favorite memories from their special day.

Measurement Guide - How to Measure for Your Size

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.

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. Stand up straight and do not “suck in” when taking this measurment.

Hip size

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.
