I was pretending that I have extra spending money and was on forever21.com. I went to their "brilliant buys" section, and found these. They remind me of a cheaper version of a JCrew dress I saw at a friend’s wedding. For $10.50, I think they should definitely be ordered and at least TRIED ON. Mostly available in jewel-tones, but also in brown. I think the red is super cute. Like I said, for $10.50, even if the material isn’t as nice as a JCrew, your girls won’t care; when the heck do you get to wear a cute, inexpensive bridemaids gown? And chances are, they actually WILL wear this again. That’s all I’m saying…. Has anyone tried these on yet? I’m thinking of picking one up for myself, for the holidays…
Or, for a better comparison:
JCrew, $165 silk chiffon Sophia

They are cute but you might want to check out the additional model pics. The dresses look awfully short for wedding wear, although it probably depends on how tall your bm are! Just something you might want to check–good find though

Woah, I agree.Â Those views on the models are very, very short.Â Your bridesmaids would have to be very short to pull it off.Â I definitely wouldn’t wear that without pants underneath.

Hi everyone I purchased those dresses from Forever21 in red for my bridesmaids and everyone is thrilled. However, they are for the reception. We’re all wearing long and formal for the ceremony and changing into these dresses to dance during the reception. If you’re curious about what the dresses look like in real life, go to my blog. It’s currently under construction, aesthetically, but most of the posts are readable. 🙂

I just bought the Forever21 dress in black – it’s a great deal given the price, but is *very* short (and I’m just 5’4"). Suitable for a party, but probably not so much for a wedding.
If you are inclined, you could do a little creative sewing work to replace the lining (which is only starts at the waist) with something a little longer that might look cute peeking out under the chiffon-like outer layer, or maybe also add a decorative border/edging to equal the extra length…
