I pretty much had my heart set on the Spiced Wine Silk Chiffon dresses from J. Crew for my ladies. Since I am going to see most of them in the next few weeks, I figured I would order a bunch of dresses to make sure 1) i liked the color and style 2) they could figure out which dress and size they wanted.
I ordered 6 dresses (5 in Spiced Wine, 1 in Sweet Thistle because I wanted to see what this color looked like too). Turns out, I like the Sweet Thistle color better.
We are getting married in late February, but in Texas, it’s kind of like early Spring rather than “winter” down here. We are going to be getting married outside (weather permitting). My question is which dress do ya’ll like the best? I really like sweet thistle, over the spiced wine, but is it too “spring-y”?

I love the spiced wine! I thnk it is beautiful! Perfect for February in Texas. Not too wintery and not too springy… And I love the style as well!

I love the spiced wine color.

I actually think the spiced wine is more of a fall color and the sweet thistle is more appropriate.

If you like sweet thistle best, go with it. Definitely not too spring-y for late Feb in Texas 🙂

okay so i’ve decided we are going with…SWEET THISTLE!! 🙂 it’s the slightly less popular opinion on the ‘bee, but ultimately i think it’s going to be the best option for our venue.
three of my ‘maids are located in ohio, and i took a bunch of dresses up there when i visited this weekend. i am letting them pick between 3 dresses, and they’ve all picked the same one!! i was really surprised by that. they picked the silk chiffon “taryn” j crew dress. lets see if the rest of the them pick the same dress 🙂
now maybe i should start thinking more about colors for the wedding…

I like the sweet thistle the most…..strapless always reminds me of hotter weather.

I am wearing that exact strapless dress in spiced wine for a wedding in 2 weeks. I love the dress. I may actually wear it again!
