Has anyone had their BMs choose from J. Crew’s line of Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses? Some of my girls and I went to the only J. Crew wedding showroom in NC this past weekend to see the dresses in person. I had selcted the ‘spiced wine’ color, with the intention of allowing each girl to choose the dress they liked the most and felt most comfortable in. The fabric was gorgeous in person…and the photos on the website really don’t do it justice. I’d see the dresses photographed at a friend’s wedding and they photograph much more purple than do they burgandy (which is what I want, because I was orignally looking for an eggplant color…turns out the perfect ‘eggplant’ is REALLY hard to find).
I was especially excited to find out that you buy their dresses as you would any normal garment…you pick your size and order. That way, they allow 60 days to return. I was thrilled becasue I know with other designer lines, they measure you and make the dress exact, thus no refunds!
Anyway, what was your experience with J. Crew bridal??

I bought my sister (MOH) her dress from J Crew’s bridesmaid dress line, and it was no different than buying from any other normal retail store. I ordered her normal size, it fit right off the rack, and there was the same generous return policy if we had any problems… which we didn’t! So my experience was the same as any other time I by from J Crew!

Yep! Mine are from J. Crew and they are wonderful! I actually found them to be a little generous in sizing. I bought two dresses for myself in my usual size and I could have gone down one, too.
Only one of my girls needs to make some alterations to her dress. I have never bought a bridesmaid dress (despite being measured) and been able to wear what they sent. They have always needed alterations. So, the fact that two of my three don’t need any changes is a huge score in my book!

Ours were from J. Crew. They were chiffon in dusty shale. Absolutely gorgeous. We did find them on the clearance section and ordered them online for a fraction of the price. The dresses were $40, originally priced $250! Check that sale section!

My dress and my MOH’s dress are from there. So easy to order, got them in a few days and they are amazing. I think they are a hidden gem in the wedding dress industry!

I just replied to your other post, but J Crew now carries a bridesmaids dress color called “Dark Eggplant” or at least it’s on their website. I haven’t gone to the store yet, but I just wanted to chime that in. They said that when I go I can call ahead with styles and colors that I want and they’ll get them in for the girls to try on.
