I just ordered the Jenny Packham Aspen. It was completely over my budget and I had spent SEVERAL months freaking out about my dress (I had put a deposit on something else that I ended up hating)…but now I feel so enormously happy. I am generally a very budget-conscious girl (and not terribly fashion-conscious to be honest) but I realized this really is my once-in-a-lifetime dress. And I love it so much. And if I have to have everyone I know staring at me for a day (not my favorite) at least it’ll be in something I truly feel like a million bucks in.

Here are a couple of pics of me in it.

I tried on a bunch of Jenny Packham dresses (mostly from her SS 2012 collection) and they were ALL stunning.

For the record, I do think with this particular dress, it helps that I’m flat-chested. But don’t think all the JPs are like that at all!

Do consider trying them on. It was kind of a transformative experience for me. The bridal consultant said to me, “If you’re really a Jenny girl, nothing else will do” and I think she’s right!

@RexManningDay:  Man that’s a beautiful dress.  I just googled it and the article I found said:

“If you are over a C cup and need to wear a bra it might be worth finding a new object of lust. As the dress is virtually backless and frontless one needs reasonably perky, self-supporting boobs. Cups can be added internally to the dress to give a little boost and Jenny Packham are providing a sliver of extra lining to make the a tad more modest.”

Sad for us bigger chested gals.

Thank you so much, ladies.

@LurkerBee, if it makes you feel better, this may have been one of two times in my life I’ve been thankful for not having any cleavage (13-year-old me spent many, many nights believing they would come. They didn’t.)

But, in all seriousness, there were quite a few lovely JP dresses I tried on that wouldn’t have the same problems if you had a fuller chest.

Hi everyone!

I have a Jenny Packham aspen dress in ivory – size UK 8 (taken in minorly so could fit a UK 6).  I am 5”7″ and plan to wear heels with the dress.  (I am as US size 2).  My wedding is July 2013 and I would be willing to sell afterwards for $3500 USD.  Please contact me if interested!

Also:  I am a 34C cup and the top part fits perfectly!

Thanks!

I’ve been reading these posts for months now, since getting engaged in August and I FINALLY decided to start the dress shopping process this past week. I am very happy to say I am now going to officially be a Jenny bride!!!!! I tried on about 7 dresses from the 2011-2012 collection and finally decided on the Willow dress  (Ivory/Champagne) for our Great Gatsby wedding!

 

Anyone else wearing Willow/Aspen or have anu suggestions on head pieces/veils? …. I’m leaning towards the Jenny headband (acacia II) but would love to hear from other JP brides.
