My maids are wearing these! We’re doing a mix of the tea-length, everyone has a different style top but they are all in the peacock color. We are just order them now, so  I don’t have much to say yet!

We did get to visit St. Paul and try them on in the store! I thought the fabric was really high quality for the price. It’s flowy and soft.

And the peacock color is darker than what it looks like on the website. We also really like the mint, which is more light blue than it looks.

My BMs are ordering a mix of those two exact dresses in the picture, same color and style. I told all of them about the try before you buy option, but nobody has ordered a sample yet. I can’t wait to see them in person. Anyone have pics of these dresses on real life BMs?

Just ordered these this weekend for my bridesmaids! I went to their shop in Minnesota. FYI, they just came out with two new styles for the chiffon dresses – a halter and scope-neck with straps. The halter especially is awesome! I don’t think they are on the website yet.

We’re going with the peacock color. It’s even better in person. I highly recommend!

ohh! can anybody who has seen them in person comment on the blush color that they have available? is it a really light faded pink? or more of a colorful baby pink? 

thanks in advance!

@pandake:  I’ve seen the blush color in-person. It is a very lgiht faded pink. The coral is brighter, more “colorful.”

 If you contact them, I think they will send your a swatch. They sent me one for peacock. Good luck!

I know this thread is pretty old, but I just ordered from Kennedy Blue and thought I’d add my thoughts as a Public Service Announcement to brides and wedding parties. Summary: Do not order from Kennedy Blue. Had a terrible experience (as a bridesmaid). 

Ordered a dress back in November…and the promise was that it would be delivered by February 21. The bridal party (who was scattered throughout the US) arranged for try-on meetings, etc. based on that date. Feb. 21 rolls around and…NO DRESS. I contacted them to inquire, and they pretty much said that the dress was already on its way and that it’s not that much longer, so nbd. Actually, here’s their actual email, copied and pasted below:

Hi,

The shipping date is an estimated shipping date from our designer. As we do try to get the dresses to you by that date, we also have stated on our website that there will be a slowdown in production due to Chinese New Year which generally is 1-3 weeks. This year the slowdown was minimal, however as we do ship two day priority I think the dress shipping on Feb 21st ( following a federal holiday with no mail service) should not be stressful. With the weather, the mail service and possible delays from overseas, it is very difficult to guarantee you dress will be in hand the day of the estimated ship. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you. We coordinate with the designer and the production staff overseas and do our utmost to ensue all of our customers receive their dresses in a timely manner. You should receive your dress by Friday, Feb 24th.

Again, our apologies for the inconvenience this may have caused.

Thank You.

Jeanne C.

Aside from the fact that they did not accept responsibility for their wrongdoing, they decided it was appropriate to tell me that their transgression “should not be stressful.” It was unprofessional of them to decide for me what is or is not stressful–especially since airplane tickets and $$$ were involved (long story short: we were obviously not able to have the try-on session in time). IT WAS STRESSFUL. Especially for the bride. 

Also, we chose Kennedy Blue partially because it seemed like a legitimate site that offered high-quality dresses. However, as you can see from their email, their dresses are just made in China. I’m wondering if it’s even MASS made, since all us girls had issues with the fit. 

As a lovely cherry on top, when the dress finally came, there was a pubic hair on it. 

I’d suggest taking your business elsewhere. Kennedy Blue is tempting because of the prices (when they have sales), but you really do get what you pay for (actually, less) and it’s simply not worth the stress and frustration.
