In 2014, Scheana-Marie of Vanderpump Rules fame married Michael Shay in a 2-piece custom-created crop top wedding dress made by her Aunt Dimitrianne Wood. Featured was a sweetheart neckline with pearl beading and an embroidered high-waisted mermaid skirt, and her wedding planner, Danielle Rothweiler, stated, "Her dress, without a doubt, was uniquely Scheana. She had no desire to be in a traditional wedding gown, and instead opted for a crop top gown. The gown was actually made by her aunt and it included removable straps. She kept the straps down for the ceremony and then pulled them up for the reception so that she could have fun without pulling her top up all night." 

I don't know if anyone recalls, but I distinctly remember people being shocked and dismayed at Scheana's choice. The internet, especially Twitter, let it be known too, and didn't hold back. Some of these people may prefer a more formal gown, instead of casual, but to be honest, it got kind of ugly. 

Scheana-Marie's Crop Top Wedding Dress that created such a stir:

And when I saw the Embellished Spaghetti Strap Wedding Separates Top by DB Studio, I was immediately reminded of Scheana's dress from her 1st wedding. Back in 2014-2015, you didn't see that many brides wearing crop top gowns, and they didn't seem all that readily available either. This trend was still gaining traction on the fashion runways and wedding aisles, but today, crop tops are incredibly popular.

Described as a wedding separates top that is beautifully embellished with luxurious beading, crystals and pearls, the beaded crop bodice is accompanied by spaghetti straps, and meant to be perfectly paired with the wedding separate skirts. Available in a plus size top as well.

My Thoughts
While not my preferred style, sometimes brides want to be the complete antithesis of traditional, timeless and classic. The crop top trend is hot and isn't dying anytime soon, but no matter what is in at the moment, what is most important is that you embody your own signature style and make the gown of your choice work for you, even if it is Scheana Marie inspired.
