- Wedding: October 2011
I was hoping to get some input from savvy brides on a little dilemma I am having about bridesmaid dresses. I LOVE the J. Crew Blakely Dress in Wild Plum, which is a cotton silk faille fabric. My sisters love the color and the style but we are concerned that the fabric is too casual. My wedding is in a church at 2pm but we are having an elegant reception in the evening. J. Crew categorizes this as one of their “day” dresses but they told me on the phone that they have bridesmaids order these dresses for black tie weddings!
Is anyone familiar with this dress or cotton silk faille? Can it be dressed up enough?
Our alternative is to go with the Blakely dress in silk taffeta in Spiced Wine – I’m just worried this won’t be purple enough. In some pictures, it lookes very purple but in others it looks more red to me…
