Jessa Duggar's Wedding Look

On her wedding day, Jessa Duggar wore a blush bridal ballgown, made of English net and satin, with a beaded bodice of Swarovski crystals and pearls. She ordered her dress, which is from Allure Bridal's modest collection, through Tesori Bridal.


“It was the second dress I tried on,” Jessa told PEOPLE. “I love it.”


To achieve the style she was looking for, the bride had a few layers of tulle removed from the gown before her wedding day.


Jessa wore her heart-shaped pendant necklace, a gift she received from Ben when the couple began their courtship. Her sisters helped her fix her hair in the curly style that has become the Duggars' trademark. (Watch our Duggar hair tutorial below.)



Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald also chose to write their own vows.

  1. Her dress looks like it has a higher neck than in the picture of the model. The model's neckline in really low.

    3. I doubt it would have been altered. Every dress would fit each person ddifferent depending on how long a neck is or the chest cavity. I have seen them wearing shirts as low as the model which really is not even that low. This is a dress that is modest from the beginning and wouldn't need any altering. Just different body wearing the same dress produce different looks.

    4. They have to have the neckline altered to meet community modesty standard no bareback or cleavage

  2. Jessa seems very fashion forward so this dress really complements her personality. Love the color and love that some rule was removed. Beautiful!

  3. I am happy for Ben and Jessa. At the very top of the page the new photo of Jessa and Ben is only labeled with Jessa's name and not Ben's name. Please correct this.

    2. Well it's only talking about her look, not his look, so it's correct to put only her name. They aren't talking about his tux. They are talking only about the dress she wore.

  4. Hey Lily and Ellie

  5. I'm really surprised that the Duggar's didn't "buy used and save the difference". I borrowed my cousin's wedding dress and (my mom) just had to pay for the dry cleaning for it (it was also used as my 'something borrowed' item)

  7. I need to have a question answered. Is Jinger about to enter a courtship with Lawson Bates? I want to be sure I ask the right folks and you gals are pretty close to the family. Those two sure would be a great couple! Also I pray for Jana. She will make some man an awesome Provberbs 31 wife! She is so sweet and so loving! God bless these amazing girls! We all could learn a lot from their example!

  8. It's beautiful. I wish the girls, both and her Jill would style their hair in an up-do for their wedding - they have so much gorgeous hair to work with. Do something extra special! I also notice Michelle doesn't change her hair one bit for a wedding!

  9. Wow, the model's arms are so skinny!!! What an unrealistic expectation of us! All of you: don't believe this lie.

    I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful. . . . I know that full well.

    Thank you Duggars - Jess you looked gorgeous in that gown - kudos for breaking tradition!

  13. Congrats and God Bless you Ben & Jessa! Love your dress and can't wait to see the wedding!
    We were able to rent my daughter's dream wedding dress for a small fee. The dress fit perfectly with no alterations needed.

  14. Above in the family photos, it should say Jill & Derrick. Jill is the Duggar and her name should come first! (You got Jessa's correct!)

  18. There, there now , all the impatient people who wanted the header changed A.S.A.P. you can relax now. Geeeze,give the ladies a sec to catch their breath, they were kind enough to hurry and get the pictures and comments up at speedy rate....and they put alot of it on Sunday which usually is a day for time spent with God and family. I will apologize for those people who have no patience. THANKYOU ladies!:-) Sincerely,Linda

  22. I read that Jessa only had Jinger in her bridal party and not all of her sisters. Is this true? Will her wedding air on TLC? Questions aside , She looked absolutely gorgeous and I LOVE her dress. I also loved that they had their first kiss in private.

  23. I think that she really deserved a white dress that symbolize purity. There are few brides to deserve the white dress. She had a nice dress but i wshed to be perfectly white.

  24. Love the hair tutorial!

  25. congratulations to jessa and ben on their wedding but congratulations to jessa on her birthday today have a MARVELOUS time

  26. The model looks so much like Jessa that I was questioning if that was her or not! Agreed the dress was a right choice for Jessa, lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Jessa was fit and slim looking at the rehearsal dinner, I think Ben has been making her exercise.
    I think Jessa is just about the same size as this model. More pictures of the big day are welcome!

  28. I agree, you should have Jill's name first. She's the Duggar, not Derrick.

  29. That dress is absolutely beautiful!! Made me want to get married all over again....... Maybe one of my granddaughters will like it as much as I do... Jessa, you are a beautiful bride... Good luck to you & Ben...

  30. Beautiful dress! I'm so glad to see a wedding gown company actually has a few modest styles. Thirteen years ago when I got married there weren't many modest gowns at all to choose from and I had to add cap sleeves to a dress, but I loved how it turned out. I look forward to watching more of Jessa and Ben's courtship/engagement/wedding... I wish there were more wholesome tv shows like this to watch!

  31. Jessa looks beautiful, even better than the model. Ive never been a fan of colored wedding dresses but this changed my mind. Colorful enough to add character but not too much so it looks gaudy.

  32. Can't wait to see the wedding!!!! So excited for the whole family. :)
