Wedding Dress Picks From Camille La Vie's Marketing Girls

Camille La Vie Wedding DressesWhen you’re in a serious style crunch, getting a second opinion can be incredibly helpful. Mermaid or trumpet, cap sleeves or strapless; how else to know if something looks fantastic-or should immediately retreat back to the rack? If you’re anything like us, your girlfriends are the go-to’s for any fashion advice. But in the case of wedding dress shopping, many brides like to venture out alone and with a clear head. While the final say is the bride’s only, sometimes it’s necessary to have a fresh perspective. We recently asked bride-to-be’s Jess and Natalie, the ladies behind Camille La Vie’s social media, to scope out their top 3 dresses from the wedding collection-and dish exactly why they chose each for a potential strut down the aisle. Get inspired by their insights below, then keep your own in mind as you shop for a wedding dress. Alright ladies…let’s “I do” this!

Jessica's Picks

Jessica's Wedding Dress Picks“My personal style is classic with a chic, unique twist. I’d like my wedding dress to be timeless with some trendy touches mixed in so it still stands out. I love metallic detailing (so in right now!) with a romantic, yet ‘classic’ bridal vibe.”

1. Lace V-Neck Wedding Dress with Organza Tiered Skirt

“Since I’m not a fan of strapless dresses, I love that this gown has subtle, thin straps. The bodice is simple yet unique with just a hint of sparkle-so, so pretty! The tiered ball gown skirt is very of-the-moment in bridal right now, and incorporates the romantic finish that I’m looking for in a wedding dress.”

2. Lace and Tulle Wedding Dress with Illusion Sleeves

“Although I’m getting married in July and these sleeves might be too hot–I’m still in love with this dress! The mermaid silhouette and open back are so flattering, and I adore the delicate lace sleeves. This dress makes you do a double take because it’s that gorgeous.”

3. Metallic Applique Illusion Wedding Dress

“Gold = YES! I picked this dress because it meshes classic bridal with modern touches, like illusion and metallic. The sheer neckline and back are stunning, and the flowing silhouette makes this dress perfect to dance in-a major factor for me! The metallic appliques add just enough sparkle from every angle-and who doesn’t want to sparkle on their wedding day?”

Natalie's Picks

Natalie's Wedding Dress Picks“When it comes to fashion and style, my personal taste is very feminine and romantic. I usually gravitate towards modern pieces with delicate, ladylike touches, exactly what I’m picturing for my wedding dress.”

1. Lace Wedding Dress with 3-D Floral Appliques

“I love that this lace wedding dress has such a feminine appearance! The 3-D floral applique is contemporary, yet romantic, making for a very unique finish. In a way, this dress also gives off a vintage vibe and I definitely veer towards that as well.”

2. Metallic Lace Fit and Flare Wedding Gown

“Because I’m currently obsessed with cap sleeves, my eyes immediately went to this dress! The lace is so elegant and totally my style, and a trumpet silhouette is flattering on all body types. The illusion neckline is also beautiful and looks super comfortable for dancing the night away.”

3. Strapless Tulle and Lace Wedding Gown

“This wedding dress has me written all over it! It’s exactly my style, with the mod mermaid skirt and heavenly lace giving off such a memorable, romantic look. The train is also simple and graceful…this dress will photograph beautifully!” Xo, Camille
