We've been waiting for over a year to see this former Bachelorette don a wedding dress, and it looks like we finally got our wish. Now if only Kaitlyn Bristowe was actually walking down the aisle instead of the red carpet!
The Bachelor Nation alum attended Nashville's Country Music Awards on Wednesday and totally conquered the carpet, opting for an unconventional wedding dress — in an even more unexpected hue — instead of a traditional red carpet gown. This just proves how damn good Bristowe looks in wedding wear, getting us somehow even more excited for The Bachelorette starlet to marry her sweetheart Shawn Booth. (Who knew that was even possible?...)
Who ever said that you can only wear a wedding dress on the day you say "I do?" We'd don a bridal gown to the grocery store if we could! But if you're going to wear a wedding dress on the red carpet (we're looking at you, Beyoncé!), you might as well go big.
Just ask Bristowe, who chose — who else — fan-favorite wedding dress designer Hayley Paige for her CMAs ensemble. The Bachelorette beauty rocked one of the designer's more sultry and alternative black wedding dresses for the big night, that featured a sheer lacy black crop top with a high neckline, and a voluminous striped organza skirt also in a midnight hue. Feeling a little jealous, nontraditional brides? (Don't worry — we are, too!)
With her super toned torso peeking out from beneath that bridal crop top, it was hard to pull our eyes away from the star's midriff (bridal bod goals, anyone?). But it was impossible to miss Bristowe's 3.5 carat Neil Lane engagement ring from fiancé Shawn Booth. But when will Bristowe be adding a wedding band to her bling? Well, the jury is still out on that one.
"We're living together, we're enjoying being engaged. When we start to plan, we'll let everybody know!" Bristowe told People way back in February. At least we now know that this Bachelorette will be looking AHH-MAZE-ING when she does finally walk down that aisle!
