Spring 2015 Bridal Fashion Week has sadly come to an end, but now we can do one of our favorite activities: Predict which new wedding dresses our favorite fashionable engaged celebrities will wear down the aisle! We already made our own picks for Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston, and Mila Kunis, but Jamie Chung (who's engaged to super-cute actor Bryan Greenberg) attended the Monique Lhuillier and Marchesa shows with InStyle to make some personal selections. Though she's keeping mum about the dress and designer she chose, she dropped some savory hints as to what kind of gown she'll wear while saying "I do". We perused her Bridal Fashion Week diary to put the pieces together!
It might not be a white wedding. This season's bridal collections featured creations in mint, blush, and soft sky blue, which dazzled Chung. "I'm really loving the colored dresses," she said. "I thought I wanted a white dress but now I'm considering a bit of color!" Perhaps she was referring to this sky blue Monique Lhuillier? The whimsical, swirling skirt would be dreamy on her!
She won't be a total princess bride. Chung toured around Monique Lhuillier's showroom — surely every bride-to-be's dream. And naturally, the sight of all of those gorgeous gowns was enough to make her second-guess any thoughts of choosing something casual or simple for her wedding day. "Growing up I was the tomboy, playing sports and getting dirty," Chung said. "I never daydreamed about my 'big day,' nor did I ever want to be the princess. It wasn't until this very moment, standing in Monique [Lhuillier]'s showroom, I realized I do want to be the princess in a fairy-tale wedding ... This is really happening!"
Look for a full skirt. Like most brides, Chung started the wedding-dress hunt with some ideas in mind — only to realize how many more options she has available! Still, it sounds like she's fallen for the idea of a mermaid or trumpet gown with a full train. "I honestly don't know what I want for my wedding dress. Again, this is all so new to me. I've never looked at wedding dresses until today. I do have an idea for what I thought I wanted, which was a trumpet silhouette with a long train made of a light, yet full material (doesn't make any sense right?). And now I'm even more confused!"
Get ready for embellishments! Unsurprisingly, her visit to Lhuillier's showroom had the effect of blinding her with stunning fabrics and beading. We have a feeling that she'll end up with something much more elaborate than she originally intended. "I took a step back to look at the collection as a whole and as time slowed I found myself in a glorious cloud of silk, satin, tulle and crystals," Chung said. "This must be what heaven looks like!"
We can't wait to see what she chooses!
