Hey beautiful bees!
I decided on JCrew’s silk taffeta bridesmaid dresses for my girls in Caspian Blue (I allowed them to choose the style), and was wondering if any other brides have used or are planning to use these dresses?
I would love to hear opinions or see pictures!

Nice! My Maid/Matron of Honor (don’t have any BMs) is wearing their silk taffeta dress, the Lorelai, in light flamingo. I think their sizes generally run large, as she ended up in 6 and is normally an 8 across the board. I like how many different styles J. Crew offers in the same fabrics and colors; it makes it easy for all your maids to find the most flattering style for herself. 🙂

Love the Lorelai!
They definitely run big, a couple of my girls were thrilled because they had to order a size 2! 😉

I’ve got my girls in two different styles, the Sangle and the Halter Sangle in Brook (light blue) and they are sooooo pretty!!! I was very happy with how they looked in real life and I think they run pretty true to size bc I had one girl who ordered a 0, one ordered a 2, one a 4 and one a P4 and they all pretty much fit perfectly, only 1 needs alterations (and that’s the 0 girl, whose ridiculously skinny)…

I just tried on the Gracen last week in the store and it was gorgeous. Also – they run a bit long (I’m 5’5 and it was below knee length on me) so you may want to order petite sizes to get them to knee length.

Yep! I’m using the one pictured above in jduck’s post in the color called Spiced Wine, and the dress that looks just like that, but with a halter strap added in Spiced Wine also. They are SUCH cute dresses! I didn’t notice them being too long, but I’m 5’10” and my bridesmaids are taller than I am. I did notice they run a little big. My sister and I both fit a 6 in those dresses, even though we’re usually 8s.
