Lena Dunham’s Custom Bridesmaid Skirt is About to Break the Internet

Okay, Lena Dunham and fellow bridesmaids just made wedding history…

Last night, longtime pal of Lena Dunham, Audrey Gelman, married Ilan Zechory, founder of Genius. The pair got married in Detroit, and although they had loads of totally Instagrammable details, the bridesmaids absolutely stole the show.

For the wedding, each of the eight bridesmaids wore a custom beaded pencil skirt from J.Crew and  fitted mock turtleneck sweater, and the maid of honor wore a similar beaded dress. According to Audrey, the skirts were hand-stiched by Jenna Lyons and the J.Crew team.

On each of the skirts, the bridesmaids were allowed to choose how they wanted to customize. Lena posted this photo, showing the various beadwork, patches and details for each girl.

Believe us when we say that we’re absolutely blown away by these unique bridesmaids skirts.

So, what if you want to replicate this look but you don’t have Jenna Lyons and the J.Crew team on hand? Think about giving your bridesmaids a color palette and letting them each choose their own skirt. You can tie the look together by having them all wear the same top, like Audrey did.

Oh and by the way, check out these other adorbs details from Audrey and Ilan’s big day.
