Does anyone have pics of real weddings with Jenny Yoo bm dresses? I am ordered in the Jenny Yoo Phoebe style for my girls.

My bridesmaid LOVE their long crinkle chiffon.  They are soft and wearable.  And unless all three of them are standing next to each other at the same time, they don’t  appeal very bridesmaidish.  Nice color choices, too.

My 2 BMs wore Jenny Yoo dresses (and my Maid/Matron of Honor with the blond hair wore Queue Collection).  They are pricey but the quality is fabulous and the dresses are very wearable again. I have a lot more photos if you are interested….

I live in Philadelphia and was totally bummed that there isn’t a Jenny Yoo location here.  So, I traveled to NYC to visit their location there…and it was completely worth it!  I went with 5 of my bridesmaids so it was pretty intense but the sales woman was extremely helpful and informative.  This made the appointment efficient and actually fun!  My bridal party consists of a a lot of different body types and we were still able to find a style that worked for everyone!  The colors were so vibrant and rich, that it was difficult to choose.  I am very excited to have my maids wear Jenny Yoo at my wedding on 10/10/10!

Just thought I would post a recent experience here, since when I was looking for Jenny Yoo reviews I only found these old ones. Might have saved some heartache had I been able to find a recent review. Hopefully others can learn from my mistake!

I had a terrible experience with Jenny Yoo bridesmaids dresses. One of my friends used the designer a few years ago for her dresses, and they were fabulous.

However, I think they have changed their manufacturer or something, as the dresses my ladies received were AWFUL! They were falling apart after trying them on once, and did not fit properly– and we’re not talking about a sizing issue, the fit was all wrong due to the design and construction.

We are now unable to use the five $300 dresses for the wedding. We’re going with a back-up option from BHLDN. So much for “made-to-order” dresses! 

Hoping to warn those looking at Jenny Yoo to stay away- I can’t believe the very low quality and the poor customer service.

My bridesmaids are ordering the Jenny Yoo Aidan in Victorian Lilac. As I have 5 girls with 5 different personal styles, sizes, body types, etc., I really wanted to have each girl wear a different dress for my wedding but from the same designer so it would be the same color, material and length. Plus, due to the wedding’s formal location I needed the dresses to be long, which limited the options and increased the price. 

 

We originally tried Jcrew, which I thought would be great since each girl could pick out a different style. Wrong. Everyone went for the Heidi, which didn’t end up working on the petite girls, even in petite sizing, and not all of the girls were happy with it. The Jcrews were more expensive but there was a 30% off sale when we first tried them on.

 

We then tried Ann Taylor (V-neck in Silk Georgette). I was happy with the quality of the fabric of the dress but it didn’t fit the “different dress per girl” criteria and the empire waist wasn’t flattering on everyone. 

 

One thing to note about Jcrew vs. Jenny Yoo is that Jcrew does use real silk fabrics, whereas the Jenny Yoo is a high quality synthetic (luxe chiffon). The Ann Taylor dress was a Silk Georgette, and I think it may have been a real silk. AT also has great sales, and although they are very expensive full price, they frequently run 40-50% sales. We ended up ordering them to try on for $180. 

 

The Jenny Yoo Aidans seemed to be the perfect match for what I was looking for. I can update this when they finally arrive, but I’ve had 4 of the 5 girls try it on and everyone looks great in them and seems to appreciate the convertible style. Since I have 9 months to go until the wedding, I think we have time to practice to get the styles right the day of. We were able to get 15% off, which brought the price about $10 under what we would have paid for the Jcrew Heidi long dresses at the 30% discount. I personally think it looks like a much more wearable and versatile dress, and I kind of want to order one for myself! I will invite the girls to post their opinions themselves when their dresses arrive :o).  

One disappointment — the final cost is around $243/dress. I wanted to keep the cost of the dresses under $200, so I toyed with the idea of ordering Aidan-style convertible dresses off of Etsy. However, when I saw the Aidan in person, the detail in the bodice and pleating in the skirt convinced me the dresses were worth it and that the Etsy route was much riskier. Plus, with the shipping you pay for them to come from China, it’s not that much cheaper in the end.
