- Wedding: October 2009
I can’t tell you what a panic Bridesmaid or Best Man dress shopping has been for me! I procrastinated and next thing I knew it was 13 weeks to the wedding when we finally went shopping. Then I found out it can take 12-14 weeks to special order a dress! So we were looking for ‘off-the-rack’ dresses. I had my heart set on a bright tropical pink for my destination wedding and sure enough, FALL stuff is out now. I was so bummed out and it was totally my fault for putting it off.
Well early on my girls both told me the LOVE J Crew dresses. Unfortunately on the screen AND on the swatch I just didn’t like their pinks. FINALLY, last weekend, desperate, I went back to J Crew to see if I could see swatches again. One of the workers happened to remember they had some ‘returns’ in the back. She brought out the full dress in the “Tea Rose” pink and it is SO PRETTY! What a relief. I still didn’t like it on the swatch, but on a dress, in natural light it is lovely.
Best of all, the summer colors are on sale and this $165 dress was only $99! So now I’m happy AND my girls have dresses they love AND my procrastinating saved them a lot of money! They placed their orders and had their dresses 4 days later.
So, if you’re looking for a simple tropical color check out J Crew: http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Browse/WeddingParties/Wedding_Bridesmaid/dresses/silktricotine/PRDOVR~62983/62983.jsp’ defer=’defer
