Waist Not, Want Not

My mom always told me to finish the food on my plate. Good for my upbringing, but bad for my girlish figure. With the whirlwind of food tasting, cake sampling, and brunches in your honor, what is a bride to do?

Calling all Greek Goddesses and Josephines! The empire waist dress makes for a very statuesque look that draws the eyes upwards and a slimming A-line skirt creates a lengthened figure that even a petite girl can carry. A band underneath the bust gives a boost to a sometimes meager bosom. Plus there is nothing to constrict the stomach so of course you'll be able to eat the hors d'oeuvre, appetizers, first course, second course, third course, fourth course, dessert, and that third slice of wedding cake.

The result - a regal beauty who is not afraid to eat!

Rosa Clara silk crepe with slight sweetheart neckline - don't the yards and yards of fabric look divine? And I love the voluminous french twist - it adds such a classic modernity.

Carolina Herrera silk charmeuse and duchess satin floral embroidered strapless A-line with crystal detail. Carolina Herrera chiffon and organza with lace applique at skirt.

Christos empire waist chiffon with flower detail at the bust and one shoulder strap. Christos embellished chiffon.

And here's an interesting tidbit of information: did you know style was often worn in white to denote a high social status? Well, don't mind if I do then!
