I will be following this thread! i love the silk taffeta ones too, but i feel bad asking my BMs paying that much for the dress. Funny that the cotton ones don’t come up in the search at all.

I think for a spring/summer wedding that the cotton would be fine. I like the first style more than the 2nd!

I really like that dress and I was thinking about having my ladies wear it, as well. But finally decided to go a different route and found something at White House Black Market. I don’t think that embossed cotton will be too casual. I think that would be beautiful, especially for late May.

One of my Bridesmaid or Best Man wore the Lorelai dress in the silk taffeta and it was so cute.  If you prefer that material, you might be able to find them on Final Sale.  I know that’s what my friend did. 

I actually bought the Aubrey dress in the cotton earlier during the Final Sale at the end of the summer, just as something to have in the wardrobe.  I think it’s flattering and pretty–you could definitely get away with it for a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress.

We’re doing the silk taffeta ones.  In black.  Don’t have any pictures but they look good on.

You’re once again increasing my sadness over the fact that J. Crew doesn’t have the extended sizes one of my BMs needs. I think the Lorelai dress is gorgeous!

I have the dark pacific Loralei cotton dress and will try to dig up a picture of me in it!  Super cute dress, super comfy, and can be dressed up with some gold jewelry and strappy sandals.

@max – that’s a good point, I usually fit into a size smaller, but I’m not exactly sure what size my one Bridesmaid or Best Man is right now (she was an 18 but gained some weight) so I don’t want to do anything to make her feel self-conscious. 

I kind of love that dress though – hmm, rehearsal dinner dress? Lol.
