Wedding Inspiration: Would You Wear A Jumpsuit On Your Big Day?


I said from the start, like two weeks ago, that I didn’t want to go for a traditional wedding gown – don’t get me wrong I still want to make a statement and be a pretty bride but I don’t think a long flowing train and veil is right for a New York City Hall wedding – so what about a jumpsuit as a fun alternative?

So jumpsuits have been getting a lot of love over the past couple of years on the red carpet, I have often gushed how Diane Kruger and Rose Byrne have made a jumpsuit look gorgeous – but I never thought that the trend would make its way into bridal fashion.

Well J.Crew have decided to mix things up with their Eyelash Lace Jumpsuit (£750), made in a delicate lace with bow details and sheer sleeves to add a touch of femininity to the look. They also do a short shimmering sequinned romper if you decided that the jumpsuit is for you but you would rather show off your fabulous pins.

For a registry office, city hall elopement, or just for a quirky bride I think this look might work – and it does really marry the ‘I do’ and the party aspect of a wedding perfectly – but I don’t think this trend is for me.

What do you think would you wear a jumpsuit on your big day?

Video Loving: J.Crew Shares Its ‘Shiny Ponies’

Shoe addicts you have to watch this adorable short film from J.Crew with their gorgeous creative director Jenna Lyons discussing her love of shoes, she has 289 pairs and counting, and how the brand makes their fabulous footwear collections.

I am not as shoe obsessed as some, granted I have a lot of pairs, but sky-high heels aren’t always my thing but I do love to look at them, admire them on other people, and there are some beauties in this film, especially the ones that Jenna describes as “business at the front, party at the back” – they are simply divine.

I am in love with the ‘Etta’ seen in this video, the term ‘shiny pony’ and Jenna – oh and generally everything about J.Crew – I can’t wait for the store to open on Regent Street, London later this year.

“Shoes are like fairies… with that little magical piece that finishes everything” – Jenna Lyons.
