Individuality was key for Jessica Simpson when it came to outfitting her 12 bridesmaids and two maids of honor for her July 5 wedding to Eric Johnson. Instead of going the matchy-matchy route, each person walked down the aisle in a designer dress that was as unique as the wearer herself.
“Not every girl is the same shape, not every girl is the same size, not every girl is the same personality,” Simpson says in a behind-the-scenes video on People.com. “Of course as a bride we always want to feel the most beautiful we’ve ever felt, but I think the support system of everybody else feeling the best is what makes you feel the best.”
Simpson’s friend and stylist (and bridesmaid) Nicole Chavez dressed everyone for the big day. The bridesmaids and maids of honor wore pieces from designers like Marchesa, Jason Wu, Temperley, and Carolina Herrera. The new Mrs. Johnson didn’t specify a theme for the dresses except that she wanted them to look ethereal with some sparkle. And the result was, of course, amazing.
