J.Crew has done wonders for wedding fashions. Future blogs will be dedicated to how they can help with dressing the men in your wedding party and the little ones as well, but this one is all for the bridesmaids. This season, the designers at J.Crew have really stepped it up – of course it doesn’t hurt when the First Lady dresses herself and the First Kids in your clothes!
The fabric is divine, everything from cotton cady to silk tricotine, silk taffeta and silk chiffon. These fabrics look rich, in stark contrast to some of the rayon/cotton jersey dresses on the market. Like always, the colors and palettes pop and provide many opportunities to match the overall wedding color scheme. One of my favorite colors is this tea rose in the Cecelia short dress above. This is one of my favorite silhouettes in a smoothe silk tricotine.
These satin high-heeled sling backs would go great with the dress above, and they are on sale -even better! I know this comment will bring on some mocking from some special people in my life, but these shoes make my heart go pitter patter a little… the sweet color, the Italian design. Relatively affordable shoes do not get better than this if you ask me!
This color is another fave in the Spring collection, and I love the cut and design of this dress. The shoes above would also work well here.
What’s great about these designs is that brides can pick a palette and a fabric and let each individual bridesmaid select the silhouette.
The one major issue I have with J.Crew’s wedding collection is that most of their dresses only go up to a Size 12, rather unrealistic for the average woman. Still, if those limited sizes do happen to work for you, the prices are reasonable, the quality is supreme, and your bridesmaids will be happy in a dress they can definitely wear again!
