@spotted_giraffe:  Have you looked online? I would assume they have a coupon policy or a way you can sign up for emails…

I haven’t heard them having crazy awesome sales – but I may be out of the loop.

Plus, if it goes on sale – it is becoming harder to get all the sizes you need. If you see the dresses you like now then get them – if you don’t want to pay those proces look elsewhaere – I used modcloth…

I think you have to wait for a general sale.  JCrew doesn’t really do coupons.  A lot of times the stuff is Final Sale, so you can’t return it, but if your girls know their sizes, you can get a great deal.

You just wait for a general sale, JCrew isn’t big on coupons. However, if you or anyone in your bridal party is a teacher or college student (or still has a college photo ID and looks similar to the photo still) you can get an additional 15% off.

Hi!

I had J. Crew Bridesmaids dresses in m wedding. I found this website:

http://jcrewaficionada.blogspot.com/

…I showed my bridesmaids this website so they had the info about when they would have their sales. I think sometimes you can save up to 40%!

Hope this helps!!

I think the sale is at the same time each year, when I was first looking at J Crew dresses the sale was on (I think it was February-March)  I think every style was on sale, so you just added the dress to you cart and it was the sale price.  I think it was 20% off.

Over the past year I have received numerous coupon codes from jcrew in my email usually 20-30% off. Just sign up through jcrew. They are definitely less often now that it is wedding season, and harder to get because a lot of size are sold out so I am glad my BMs got theirs early. 

 

Usually when they are on sale more than 30% it is only select style and select colors as well so it depends on that as well.

@spotted_giraffe:  Don’t let it stress you out – ease off the gas on it.

Back up and reassess – do they HAVE to match – do they HAVE to be the same color – do they HAVE to be solid (no print).

Mine are none of these – unmatching floral cotton dresses that each girl picked. I am sure if you look through the unmatched bm bress threads you would be hard-pressed to find a bee who was sad she made this decision.

The girls get to find something they can wear again (and don;t bemoan the price of the one they are forced into).

You don’t have to have this be soemthing that stress you out – let it go. 🙂

@spotted_giraffe:  I used J.Crew for bridesmaid’s dresses and I’m so glad I did. Some girls were able to get their dresses straight up on sale (two actually paid $60 for theirs). Other girls ended up using a 30% off coupon. They do coupon codes a lot, but be warned, the coupon codes tend to exclude bridesmaid’s dresses, so they’re more likely to have a handful of chances to use a coupon code. If you go the jcrew route, I recommend getting complimentary swatches first, and then checking with a consultant on your favorite color to make sure it’s not about to be discontinued.

@spotted_giraffe:  Have you seen Donna Morgan?  They are similar to the J Crew dresses (flowy, chiffon) and are cheaper even when the J Crew ones are on sale (unless they were super on sale).  Plus they are sold in stores so you can try them on.  They are having a sale right now, but it seems to be random styles and colours only: http://www.donna-morgan.com/bridal/by-color/icat/bridal_color
