I think Claire will choose something modest (duh), but modern. I’d like to see long sleeves. I think something slimline (but not tight) would suit her. Plain and simple, not too much lace - she is very pretty, so she doesn’t need lots of details. 

I imagine something elegant like this (without the low back), but if she goes for a fuller skirt it might be in a similar style to Kate Middleton’s dress.

This looks a lot like Lauren’s. When we got introduced to her, I was impressed as her style was definitely different from the Duggar brand. She showed some very pretty “hot secretary” outfit for example and not just country girl/librarian chic. Nothing wrong with those but they all look pretty similar and Lauren sticks out. Claire seems to be less into fashion from what I have seen. You need to feel extremely comfortable in your body to rock a dress like that and it’s definitely a more fashionable style. The long sleeve, lace, full skirt type has been a safe bank and pretty mainstream ever since Kate Middleton stepped out of the car. (I would have never thought her fashion choice could actually start a trend- she is definitely not a trendsetter or has the best style.)

I am definitely unsure what style will be the style of this decade in terms of wedding dresses. The strapless, full skirt was very 2000, and the long sleeve lace very 2010. I see a lot of tight dresses (s.a.), boho and vintage inspired ones. It will be interesting when we look back what and if there will be a noticeable 2020 look.

Long sleeves would fit with the season, I think the suggestions above would be a really good option but they do look a lot like Laurens dress.

My read on Ma Spivey is that we'll see Claire in full fundie princess splendor, aka more of a Kendra style.

My big question is will the dress already be modest or will it be horribly turned into an ugly modest creation?

@Audrey2 oh I don’t see Hilary signing off on any ugly bodge jobs. Having hooked her Duggar she will be looking for something modest and stylish - Claire may or may not get a say in it.

That's gorgeous. If I'd had a winter wedding instead of the early fall one we did have, I'd wear that.

@MaryOrMartha I think it'll be similar to that, too! maybe not with the shiny satiny material, but a lace bodice and simple skirt. maybe like these?

^ girly, but more subtle than Kendra- or Jessa-level princessy.

Most on-trend wedding dresses these days are already fairly modest. I think the frankendresses were more necessary when everything off the rack was strapless.

I think she’ll go short or half sleeve with an a-line gown. 
 

I don’t see much lace but I do think she’ll have sparkle. 
 

If she does do lace, I hope it’s embroidered.

It’s a hard prediction. The last dresses (minus Abbie’s) were pretty much in line with current fashion trends. I don’t see a Boho or a glam aesthetic like Josie and Whitney Bates brought out in the last years. If they stick with more fashion-led choices @ihaveanexamintwodays and @Jinder Roles might have a shot. Kendra‘s and Lauren‘s dresses were fantastic and matched their personalities. Somehow I don’t see Claire as interested in fashion trends and her personality seems to more calm and caring, almost motherly (?). We haven’t seen much of her so who knows though.

Hopefully she can pick something she really likes without being forced to tone it down or ramp it up for the Duggar image.

I hope she picks something young fun and pretty. I would hate to see someone so young in a frumpy matronly dress that wears her. I would actually prefer to see her run for the hills.... but ah well we can at least hope for a dress that she genuinely loves even if we (as a collective) think it’s horrid. 
I know it has been said before but I never get why they just don’t by Morman wedding dresses. Already modest and most of them I would wear. My dress taste likes covered shoulders and arms etc I dont mind my girls to be a bit on show though so that’s where me and mormans part ways.

@AussieKrissy I guess the ritual of choosing the wedding dress with Michelle and various other Duggar women has become easy filler for the show. The Say Yes to the Dress formula is hugely popular and the producers hope it will pull in viewers. Plus Duggars are cheap and if it’s filmed they get the dress paid for and no doubt transport for all the hangers on to the shop.

I wouldn’t be surprised if during one of Michelle’s visits to Texas they filmed the dress choosing - probably all wearing masks like the hypocrites they are.

I am absolutely loving these descriptions!  

I married for the first time quite late in life, and was married in a simple floor length dress w/ a floral design on a pale lavender background. If was an outside afternoon wedding and the dress was comfy and easy to get around in. 

I love the pics of gorgeous dresses upthread with yards of fabric swirling around the feet of the bride, it looks very romantic.  BUT, from a functional point of view, like even walking down the aisle, how do these work?  Is an attendant required to hold up and arrange the piles of fabric or tulle?  It looks great in a still photo, but the logistics of actually functioning in such a dress at a wedding look...daunting.

Frequently gowns are designed so that the train can be attached as a bustle so the bride can get around more easily and dance at her reception. But yes, that is why brides need attendants. In theory, one could also do an over-skirt which would be detached after the ceremony, but I don't know it that actually happens. 

The most interesting choice I ever saw was when I attended the wedding of a woman of Chinese descent. She was married in a traditional white wedding gown at the church. Then, for her reception, she changed to a traditional Chinese wedding dress, which was red. It was designed so she could move around in it easily. The reception was held in a Chinese restaurant which was closed to other business that day. It was some of the best food I have ever had, though I did pass on a few of the traditional delicacies presented.

It was very filthy the next day 😁

My dress had quite a floaty train too. By the evening I was too drunk to worry about it getting trodden on/dirty etc. (Obviously this wouldn’t be a solution for fundies 😂). It did end up a real mess but nothing a good dry clean couldn’t sort!

I once stumbled upon a long floaty train on a dance floor. Alcohol might have been involed. Nobody got hurt and I didn't tear apart the dress or anything.. still one of the more embarassing moments in my life. But at least all the other people (including the bride) had a good hard laugh.

Our wedding venue has a beautiful spiral staircase that leads down to the lawn where our ceremony was, and I thought it would be so nice to make a dramatic entrance down the stairs. I clearly wasn't considering my train or heels when I made that decision. I'm pretty sure the first time my husband saw me walking down the "aisle" the look on my face was more terrified, "please don't let me fall down these stairs in front of everyone," rather than happy and excited to be marrying him. Oops.

You look beautiful. Although the best decision I made was to wear converse under my wedding dress, they were my something blue.

Thank you! I love the idea of Converse. I only wore the heels I did because they were the first present my husband ever bought for me when we first started dating. I did change into flats (and the short dress I wore to the rehearsal dinner) for part of the reception. We did a cha cha/swing combo for our first dance and there was no way I could cha cha in a long train.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
