BIG NEWS. This is the dress that my bridesmaids will be wearing. In 5 different colors (one color being the one above).
Why I love this dress:
1) Doesn't look like a "bridesmaid" dress per se;
2) I can incorporate all the colors that I originally wanted into my color scheme;
3) It's flattering on everyone;
4) It's floaty, and fits perfectly with the whimsical/tea-party-ish theme I am going for;
5) It's inexpensive; and
6) Since it's J.Crew, THERE IS NO NEED FOR TAILORING and it arrived in 3 days.
I would highly recommend checking out J.Crew for bridal wear.
