And there you have it: what Eeeee (of wedding-bralet fame) ended up wearing this weekend.

Kind of a cop out to post a picture with her hair covering her entire shoulders, no?
Well I can clearly see her shoulders. It’s the straps you can’t see, but you know they’re there, and I don’t see what difference it really makes if they’re covered by her hair or not. I think that she and Jordan have created a look that is modern, young, pretty and appropriate, and that hopefully Eeee felt fantastic in. I’m sure that, based on my own experience, the bride would have wanted her friends and family to also feel fabulous on her wedding day (if she was terribly concerned about what other people wore she would have had a dress code). I would have been far more upset about my loved ones feeling awkward and uncomfortable in clothes that were not ‘them’, than about the width/presence of their shoulder straps. Indeed, I believe a couple of my lovely ladies wore strapless dresses with pashminas. Thankfully my groom was not so overcome by the presence of whole inches of bare female shoulder that he abandoned me at the top of the aisle to leap about the room and ravish said wanton females with lusty abandon. Phew.
i don’t think so. i think hair and makeup is an important part of any look, and i think this is lovely from head to toe.
I think she looks amazing.
Gorgeous and totally appropriate!
She looks great! The color of the bralet kept it from looking like lingerie, the skirt is a good length, the accessories are spot on. And she even included a shawl. Were she at my wedding, I would have no complaint.
I was skeptical but I think it is tasteful and pretty!
Simply gorgeous. Well done, Eeee and Jordan! (And loved this follow-up!)
Gorgeous look, I love it!! Must find similar bralet, stat.
Looks gorgeous! and yes, hair styles are a part of the outfit, so her hair covering the straps was probably on purpose. If I wear a dress where I want to show the details or show my shoulders, I wear my hair up. Other dresses, it works better to wear my hair down. The lace detailing is beautiful, and the wrap/shawl makes it perfect if she ever did feel like covering up a bit. Great post and great follow-up!
I have this body shape (she mentioned THIGHS and a smaller bust) and have never considered something like this. Amazing! Rethinking everything.
Aw! It’s really sweet that you posted this. She looks absolutely darling!
I do believe that Eeee has proven that a bralet can be tasteful and downright gorgeous for a wedding. Well Done Eeee and Jordan!!!!
Thank you all so much for the amazingly nice things you’ve said! I feel high as a kite! What a lovely place the internet is today. On this site. In this post.
I felt so comfortable at the wedding and I’m so glad I took the risk because it didn’t turn out to be a risk at all! I didn’t stand out too much, and got no side eye!
In fact, a few separate groups of people approached me just to talk to me about my pseudo dress and tell me how much they liked it! Some were surprised to find out it was a bralet. Others were surprised to find out bralets exist.
The wedding itself was beautiful and the bride was a vision. Me and my bralet didn’t hold a candle to her.
Thanks to this little cliff dive, my bralet compulsion has been reinvigorated!
I might even wear a bralet to my own wedding….and maybe…I’ll show some matrimonial midriff!
Matrimonial midriff! Love.
This is my idea of a great night.
