I think she might suit a 50's inspired dress like my sister in law:

Your sister-in-law looks SO CUTE in this photo! So is that your brother? They look like they're having so much fun! I seriously could not love this more. It's great to see people having fun on their wedding day.

XO

She needs Lizzie Nichols to reconstruct her wedding dress would love for a cameo appearance by Lizzie in this, is that too much to ask? Probably something with sleeves, and since Heather is blonde ivory might be her best bet. I also see Heather going short like tea length for some reason.

Maybe something like this: http://www.bhldn.com...13-32da085940dd

Or this: http://www.bhldn.com...13-32da085940dd


Great suggestion to have Lizzie Nichols reconstruct a wedding dress for her! And these designs are adorable!

I think this would be a perfect dress. The strapless silk with lace skirting, classic, simple, antique and beautiful. http://www.fishinthe...0.html#pictures


Oh my gosh, these are all stunning!

Well, Heather lives in New York, right? Why not go to the absolute mecca of wedding gowns in New York City? Kleinfelds.

At my senior prom my friend Rosemary (who's the same body type as Heather) wore this gorgeous navy blue strapless gown with ruching in the middle. She outshone all of us other girls (and one of us even wore a wedding dress). So that's what I picture Heather in; maybe not strapless, but something that hugs and accentuates. Cooper would definitely love it.

Here's a suggestion from Kleinfeld's site (you might have to create a profile and phony wedding date like I did, though):

There's also this gorgeous one from Carolina Herrera: http://www.carolinah...ection/5/detail

And this similar one from Vera Wang: http://www.verawang....2012/130-hilary


So pretty!!!!

I think she'd rock an empire waist dress that looks regal but not too over the top.

Holy cow! This is so Keira Knightley from Pride and Prejudice (in a perfectly updated, modern way). Amazing.

I can't actually show you the photo I'd like to, because the website doesn't allow me to insert an image, only a URL for one. Here's one which shows that wedding dresses don't need to be just white/cream/ivory....


Ha! Perfect for a girl who loves to rock and roll!

Here is a link to a design I made, that I think would look beautiful on Heather! :)

My Hand Drawn Design I posted it on Pinterest because I couldn't figure out a way to upload an image from my laptop onto here.

It is loosely based on what I hope for my wedding dress to looking like in the future when I get married one day. One of the many awesome things about Heather is that she's got a normal body type, which isn't something you see or read about very often in a character! :)

Love this contest, and had a lot of fun with it! Thanks Meg and Ann! :)


Mandy over at The Romance Bookie :)


Oh, these are adorable!

PS I love that you have a wedding dress design in mind for the future! I've been married 20 years and I STILL don't know what kind of wedding dress I'd choose if I were ever to get "married" (serious wedding as opposed to courthouse elopement). You are my idol for being so organized!!!
XO

I think Heather would look cute in the following tea length wedding dresses. I'm a fan of this length. I can't see her in anything too frilly and poofy, and I don't think Cooper would want her to be covered up in too much fabric. He'd like to see her showing off her curves. ;)

starberry, I love your idea of Lizzie from Queen of Babble working on a dress for Heather. I wonder if Meg would ever do a cross over like that.

I'm having a hard time deciding because all of these suggestions are so good, but the tea lengths are starting to look like my favorites too (but I also love the look of the full length empire waist gowns too. Ugh so torn! And she doesn't have much longer to decide, the wedding is in October, you guys)!

I think either of these dresses would be lovely on Heather.


So cute!

Actually now I think back on it, Heather seems the sort of girl who would have a bit of colour in her wedding dress...

This one has a Red Train

This one a Beautiful Red lining and back

Totally rock and roll!


Just love the skirt on this one

Heather doesn't seem - to me at least- like the type who would wear a strapless wedding gown. I see her as someone buried in way too much insecurity for that. I also don't see her as someone who would go for a big fancy long puffy gown.

I see her in something more breezey, simple, and fun, with a lacy top: My link

But if she did go for a long gown, I still think she'd keep to having a cute lacy top/sleeves: My link


I could definitely see her in something like the top one (and Cooper's mom not approving)! So kicky and fun!

You're right. I guess I always focused more on how she always insists that she's just "big boned" and not fat, that I overlooked how she acted around Tad. But I think that after she and Cooper got together she became much more comfident, comsidering she spends hardly any time talking about her size on the fourth book. I agree wholeheartedly with you about the strapless thing, though, it is so not her.


I think Heather would definitely go strapless at an evening event at which she's trying to bring out the sexy (and I think she wore a dress like that to the Pansy Ball, at which she danced with Cooper), but for her wedding, which is an indoor afternoon ceremony at a very fancy hotel, I don't think she'd want to do that. I personally think she'd want to tone down the va-va-voom since it's a social affair at which she wouldn't want to be worrying about the "girls" falling out, especially since she'll be the center of attention! B

ut of course, a couple of tiny well placed straps is all she'd need. We'll see what she ends up choosing!

That dress is super pretty, however, and I know you have probably nothing to do with that post from the website, but that post's wording was highly offensive, I feel like! PLUS that bride was NOT "fat", overweight, obese, she had a gorgeous body!

I know you probably didn't, just seriously was offended by that person, who wrote it, wording!
Great dress though! :)

I suppose I should've probably looked into that before posting...oops! I do agree with you on that!

Wow! Everyone has come up with such fantastic ideas already! Hopefully I can compete. ;)

It was really, REALLY hard to come up with the perfect ONE so I narrowed it down to a few. Hopefully that is okay...

I kind of got a little carried away. :P

Each and every one of those, I feel, are simple yet stunning. They are not too fancy but not too casual either. They're all form flattering (but size 12 isn't fat anyway, so no problem, right?! ;) ) and will definitely leave Cooper in awe, no matter what dress she wears, because Heather is lovely inside and out! ^_^

Can't wait for the next book! Oh, and thanks Meg! Happy pickings. Gonna be a hard one I can already tell.

I think, the dream dress for Heather Wells should be one inspired from the kind of dress the character of Callie Torres wore at her wedding in the show Grey's Anatomy(another one of my addictions besides Meg's books <3 ) with a li'l help from our Miss. Queen of Babble aka Lizzie Nicholas ;) . Now though Heather's a blonde & Callie a brunette, this dress would flatter her just as much as it flatter's Callie :) because both of them have a very close body type
the dress: https://www.google.c...00.html;400;500 (the girl on the right, that's Callie & the dress she's wearing that's the dress for Heather :D )

 

to go with the dress, these pretty glittery heels :) : https://www.google.c...es.html;714;468

 

& also, to add a bit of color & enhance the Rocker Chic side of Heather, this bouquet of purple & white roses: https://www.google.c...07).htm;638;646

 

along with this really sexy swarovski headband :D : https://www.google.c...eadband;300;300

& ta-da! we have our purrfect wedding attire for Heather! :) <3
atlast, love u Heather (& Cooper 2 :D ) & love u Meg! :) hope u liked my idea! :)
