By now you've probably heard that Katherine Schwarzenegger and Chris Pratt tied the knot last weekend. The bride wore two custom gowns from Giorgio Armani Prive and topped off the look with her mom's veil.
While we might never have the chance to wear a custom creation like that, it turns out she reportedly kicked off the festivities in a dress that mere mortals (aka those of us who did not marry Star-lord) can buy.
Butterfly Dress, $278, Reformation
If that name sounds familiar, it may be because the Duchess of Sussex, formerly Meghan Markle, wore a piece from the Los Angeles-based brand last year during a trip to Australia.
With floaty, off-the-shoulder sleeves and a fitted bodice, it's a glamorous choice for any occasion; the lightly flared trumpet skirt adds just the right amount of drama. Simple and sweet, you can pair it with glamorous heels or simple flats, and the sweetheart neckline lends itself well to whatever jewelry you want to wear.
Even better, it comes in a huge range of colors — there's the classic ivory shade that Schwarzenegger donned, or more dramatic shades like red and black. The design is also available in a few patterned options, if you're looking to add a floral touch. Despite its sudden popularity, most of the sizes and patterns are still in stock!
However, the $275 price tag can be scary — especially for a summer dress that you might only wear a few times. If you know you only need the dress for a special occasion, it is available on Rent the Runway in a few patterns.
