McKenzie and Adam's summer wedding took place in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Their fresh and bright color palette perfectly accompanied the warm and rustic country feel of their special wedding day. All of their rustic details were designed and incorporated effortlessly into the overall design scheme. Mason jars and strung white lights were a few of our favorite details throughout the celebration.
McKenzie wore a mermaid-style strapless gown with a lace overlay for the ceremony. With her hair in an up-do, the off-the-shoulder look was flawless on her. Her eight bridesmaids wore light blue dresses from Kennedy Blue. They were floor-length with a textured lace top, were flattering on each of the bridesmaids and complimented McKenzie’s bridal gown beautifully.
McKenzie and Adam’s barn-style wedding was complete with a sparkler send off after the reception. Floral arrangements were on-point and McKenzie and her bridesmaids held bouquets made of pink peonies, greenery and petite succulents. The entire evening was a magical and colorful celebration that the newlyweds loved sharing with all of their friends and family. The Anderson wedding was oh-so memorable and full of charm.

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 dress alterations.
Hollow-to-Hem: Hold the measuring tape vertically starting at the indent in your neck area between your collarbones and below your throat. Then, keeping the tape taught, bring the tape to the floor to meet your toes. This is your hollow-to-hem, or hollow-to-floor, measurement. The motion is similar to taking your height measurement.
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 measurement.
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. 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. Please note: Our bridal gown size chart is different than the bridesmaids sizing and is listed below.
