The One With All The Wedding Dresses; Friends Bridal Inspiration

Monica Phoebe and Rachel Friends Bridal Inspiration – Lora Grady Photography 7

What’s my favorite Friends episode ever? Hard to say, but can definitely tell you that my most-GIF’d Friends episode ever is “The One With All The Wedding Dresses” which is why I was so tickled by this hilariously cute bridal inspiration a la Rachel, Monica & Phoebe.

While we hope these gowns weren’t ‘accidentally borrowed’ from any real brides (we love you Monica, but oh the horror!) we are quite smitten over each of the three designs by Desiree Hartsock. If you haven’t heard, she’s stealing modern bohemian bridal hearts in the hip neighborhood of Ballard, Seattle (just down the street from Christina’s bridal shop!)

The shoot goes beyond recreating the classic ‘three gals on the couch drinking beer’ portrait (although, we love it, too!) with oodles of creative dessert inspiration. In proper Friends fashion, the three brides enjoy chocolate milkshakes and a NY deli-style dripping cake which we think Monica would approve.

Photographed by Lora Grady & designed by Elle & James Co, this editorial has inspired us to gather our girls for a wedding planning + Friends marathon, who’s with us?!

The inspiration behind this shoot was actually drawn from the Friends episode “The One With All The Wedding Dresses”. I wanted to design a shoot involving multiple female models and a shoot where you could feel the whole women support women vibe & “Saturday’s are for the girls” feel. When planning a wedding, it is obvious that a bride and her fiancee get to enjoy all that goes into creating a special day but also a bride needs her girls! There is so much to celebrate between the bridal showers, bachelorette parties, standing by a brides side on the most important day of her life and celebrating years of friendship. This shoot was geared towards all of the amazing women who make each other feel special on their big day.

We also had an amazing team of women business owners in on this shoot. Jenny Cookies created the amazing sundae cake (which is a nod to a friends photoshoot google: friends ice cream sundae) and we had Desiree Hartsock provide three gowns from her bridal collection! Having a former Bachelorette involved gave us even more Galentine’s Day inspo (will you accept this rose?) We had models that we felt represented a Rachel, Phoebe, and Monica which was fun and Libby Tipton created a “will you be my bridesmaid” suite rather than an invitation suite. So many fun details with such a fun theme!
