Jen Schefft wore this beautiful wedding dress from Carolina Herrera’s Fall 2009 line when she married Joe Waterman last week.
“It’s a little less traditional than I thought I was going to go for,” Jen told us before the wedding. “It’s a sheath, and I originally wanted something more supportive in terms of holding me in a little bit more. It’s kind of flow-y and pretty, and I think Joe will really like it too.”
The dress, which retails for $5,000, is called Cecilia, and Jen found it at Ultimate Bride in Chicago.
“I wouldn’t try anything on that was over my price point, because I didn’t want to fall in love with something that I wasn’t willing to pay,” she said. “When I tried on my dress, I knew pretty much right away. They say that’s the case, and it was definitely true for me.”
Rather than wear a veil, Jen used pieces from the altered dress to put in her hair. “They’re going to make a little something I can put in my hair and maybe put one side up,” she explained.
