Lauren Bushnell Marries Chris Lane: 5 Sleek, Modern Wedding Gowns Just Like Hers

Lauren Bushnell Marries Chris Lane: 5 Sleek, Modern Wedding Gowns Just Like Hers
Shop Story

On Oct. 25th, former reality star Lauren Bushnell married country singer Chris Lane in Nashville during an emotional ceremony, surrounded by family, friends and a sprinkling of celebrities (like fellow Bachelor contestants Amanda Stanton and Jen Saviano). The bride was so excited to see her almost-hubby, Bushnell told People Magazine, “I walked down the aisle a little too fast.” She added, “I just couldn’t wait.”


Perhaps her enthusiasm had something to do with wanting to show off her gorgeous wedding gown, which was designed by Nashville-based Olia Zavozina, with Bushnell’s guidance. The new Mrs. Lane says, “I felt so good in it. The dress is such a statement in itself, but it just fit me so well, and I was so comfortable. I felt like I was wearing a slip dress.” The modern sheath featured a plunging neckline and a dramatic train. And Lane, who proposed just four months before the nuptials took place, was a huge fan. He explained, “Lauren had kept her dress a secret the whole time, so I never had a chance to see anything. Just seeing her in it was even better than I thought it would be.” If you also love the sleek, minimalist vibe of Bushnell’s wedding gown, check out these five copycat styles, from affordable to splurge picks, that’ll make you look like a star on your own big day.

What Reviewers Are Saying:
I tried this dress on in store and loved the material. Its very lightweight and breathable (different from most dresses I had tried). I love that the style of the dress is simple and elegant, with no fluff, no lace, no beading.
