plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

Hope you were able to find some great gown options in last week’s post!

This week, I’m featuring The Cotton Bride by Chis Cole. The second I found these gowns during my gown search, I had to find a shop in town that carried them.  I was in love with the idea of wearing a simple, cotton gown.  If you have never heard of Chris Cole’s “The Cotton Bride” line, trust me when I say that you’ll be shocked that these gowns are made of cotton.

This first one was one of the first one’s that I had my eye on, but the shop in town did not have it in their samples. Sigh. I love the detail on the bodice and the pleats.

Here’s a close up of the bodice for ya!

I’m not a huge lace fan, but the fact that the skirt and bodice of this gown has a cotton lace overlay blows my mind.

For more beautiful designs, be sure to check out The Cotton Bride website.  Plus, I did some research on the prices for these gowns, and they appear to be in the lower end (under $3,000).

And, as a side note.  I tried to do a little bit more research on whether Chris Cole uses treated cotton or organic cotton and was not able to find out much information.  But I must say that a treated cotton is much better than using a polyester or other processed materials.  Their site does claim to use natural materials, which is one step closer than using a non-natural material!
