Maggie + Patrick's Winter Wedding

by Annie goebel March 09, 2018

The fresh Minnesota snow was the perfect backdrop for Maggie and Patrick's romantic winter wedding. The couple chose to feature a beautiful combination of Slate Blue and Navy in their decor and wedding party attire. Maggie and Patrick had a beautiful church wedding ceremony surrounded by their loving friends and family.

Maggie and her bridesmaids got ready together in satin robes. Maggie wore a stunning Mori Lee gown from the Wedding Shoppe in St. Paul that featured delicate lace and a gorgeous train. Her 'maids helped her into her gown and she was draped in pearls and a dreamy beaded veil.

Patrick and Maggie celebrated with a first look before the church ceremony. Maggie was glowing in her fitted lace gown and the couple embraced before meeting up with their wedding party. The ceremony was followed by a warm reception at the Royal Golf Club in Lake Elmo, MN. The reception featured gorgeous blue and gold decor, desserts (almost) too pretty to eat, and a photo booth to capture memories of the 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.
