Did Jessica McClintock create the perfect offbeat wedding dresses?

Posted by

After doing a ton of wedding profiles, I started to notice a recent offbeat wedding trend. Apparently, Jessica McClintock has captured the hearts of offbeat brides this past season with her black and white wedding dresses.

With it's dramatic contrast between black and white  and vintage-style lace, it's like a classic wedding dress with a punk-rock edge. And it's easy to see why brides are having a love affair with these dresses. Of course, in true OBB style, each bride who wore this fabulous dress made completely her own…

I first saw the black and white beauty when I profiled this amazing Pigeon Forge wedding

Jenn rocked this dress out with a pair of red cowboy boots a black veil/fascinator and a sexy, bad-ass attitude.

And then, there it was again at a backyard wedding in Wyoming

the happy bride

Jenny customized the heck out of her dress with black lace trim and splashes of color. I'm not exactly sure how she did it, but what I do know is that it's kinda' amazing! And, come on, how many other wedding dresses have been worn on the summit of the Grand Teton!?

Then I saw the funky, spunky short dress at a this Houston, Texas wedding


Shablis accented the dress with two different pairs of shoes (the black and white heels pictured above and maroon chucks and socks) plus the, now infamous, “Don't Panic” button.

And now a sneak peak of a wedding we have yet to profile…


Amber here chose the perfect dress for her black and white damask wedding, did she not? And it looks freaking stunning with a birdcage veil and bright red roses. Plus that necklace makes me wanna DIE like Rachel Zoe.

    • I bought my dream dress from Jessica McClintock, it’s boned, ivory, and has a cake bottom and trail. Fits so perfectly and is beautiful. I got it half off so it was $300. Will be wearing it October 15th 🙂 She makes such great quality things with awesome style

  1. I thought about the short dress a while back but I don't have the money for it.. 🙁

  2. That short dress was on my style radar from a while back. Glad to get a reminder of how much I like it!

  3. Beautiful Spanish influence! My only regret is that the model in the ad is in desperate need of a sandwhich.

  4. I bought the short dress for my wedding, it's absolutely STUNNING and was amazingly true to size! Plus it's going to look amazing with the Chuck Taylors I'll be wearing.

    So yes, she makes some pretty kick-ass dresses!

  5. Those are incredible!! Oh boy do I want one! Even if not for my wedding … I could wear this EVERYWHERE!!
