“I never really envisioned myself in a white dress,” Claudette says. “I liked the idea of blush, and when I saw the Vera dress on the hanger, I had to try it on. It was between that dress and an ivory one in another store. I went home and couldn’t stop thinking about the blush dress. So I went back, tried it on again and cried!” The dropped-waist gown was the perfect fit for the elegant estate affair, with its whimsical textured skirt, pleated organza and soft, pink hue.
