As the weather warms, I already find myself opting for the lightest weight clothing in my closet. I love the casual elegance of a nice pair of linen trousers, and adore the way the fabric looks in table settings and around the house. Linen has been a staple in homes around the world throughout history. For such a traditional fabric, you seem to see it used mostly in “boho-chic” clothing styles these days, but I’ve set out to find more classic looks in the bridal world. It baffles me that there aren’t more styles out there for brides. It could be due to the fear of the fabric wrinkling, but there are so many weaves available now that eliminate that issue. ***Click on the images below to shop the looks.***
This is one of my absolute favorite wedding gowns. The bride found the antique french linen and took it to Sarah Treble to create her dream dress. A custom, timeless silhouette in an antique, cool, breathable fabric? That’s a bridal grand slam.
The gown on the left is contemporary, has a bit of shimmer and shine in the beaded top, and has straps and a full skirt which make it easy and comfortable to wear.
The stunning little white dress on the right, with its intricate linen lace and beautiful stitching, would be perfect option for your reception, rehearsal dinner or bridal shower.
This simple linen dress would be darling for a backyard, beach or brunch reception, complemented by a beautiful linen sash tied into a sweet bow.
For the lovely ladies standing by your side on the big day, opt for linen dresses to keep them cool and unrestricted, so they can run around handling those last minute details and show off their famous moves on the dance floor.
You can also find gifts for your wedding party or a gift for the bride in this durable fabric, monogrammed for a personal touch.
Shakespeare once wrote “Love is like linen; often changed, the sweeter.” While I don’t quite agree with the later sentiment, I do believe that linen is a lot like love…it is beautiful, comes in lots of different forms, and gets even more comfortable with time.
