It's been a long wait (six seasons, one broken engagement and one romantic proposal in the rain) but The Office's Jim and Pam are finally tying the knot! Earlier this month, I got a chance to talk with the show's costume designer Alysia Raycraft, who told me all about creating the bridal style for the special hour long wedding episode.
Budget conscious brides will be pleased to learn that Jim and Pam's wedding proves you don't have to spend a lot to look great on the wedding day. Raycraft stayed true to The Office's realistic feeling by choosing wedding styles that she thought the characters would actually go out and buy. "I thought that Pam would indeed possibly go to David's Bridal because it's along her economic strata," she said. She also loved that the Empire waist on Pam's crinkle chiffon A-line gown could allow the character's pregnancy to show while still looking stylish (click here to get Pam's wedding dress for $399 at David's Bridal and here to see the silver bridesmaid dresses for $145).
Don't be surprised if
