Bachelorette’s Trista Sutter and Molly Mesnick’s Wedding Picks
DVRs will be firing on all cylinders tonight, with Dexter and Homeland season finales, and Ashley and J.P.’s wedding.
Molly says, “The first thing I thought of when picking a dress for this evening was, ‘How in the world am I going to dress a six month baby bump and still look fashionable!?’ I knew I wanted something colorful–so I went with bright orange! People typically gravitate towards black for weddings, so I like to steer away from it.”
With her growing belly in mind, Molly said “I didn’t want anything that had too much fabric, so I knew I needed to find a dress that was somewhat form-fitting. Even when I’m not pregnant, I look larger on TV if I am wearing something loose.”
Ultimately, she picked this Tibi Washed-silk crepe de chine mini dress, found through Shop It To Me Threads, because it’s colorful, has long sleeves, and isn’t too form-fitting. It still shows off a shape, and it’s different from what she thought everyone else would wear.
As far as wardrobe malfunctions, Molly says she had to change the entire silhouette of the dress to fit her belly properly. The new seams a tailor created started to rip during the ceremony! “Luckily I’m always prepared and had a safety pin on hand.”
For original Bachelorette Trista, the first thing she thought of when picking a dress is, “What would Jillian, Molly, Possessionista, Emily, and Michelle Money wear?” Living in the mountains and having two pre-schoolers doesn’t bode well for keeping up with trends, she says, but, knew she wanted something “classy” and coordinated with her new-favorite grey sequin platforms.
Trista, who admits to feeling “a bit like a granny compared to all the young Bachelor nation beauties,” didn’t want anything matronly, and ended up wearing a Sue Wong dress.
On the big night, her dress was a bit big, so was pulling it up all evening. “Even the Bachelor/Bachelorette stylist was yanking it up on the middle of the dance floor. Hopefully it looked good regardless!”
