Recap of J.Crew Trunk Show

Happy Monday Budget Brides!

God was so kind to shine some great weather to all of us in NYC. Don't you just love it when the weather is really crappy during the week but the weekend is full of sunshine and fun.

So The BBH was at the J.Crew trunk show today and we saw some beautiful bridal and bridesmaid dresses. Now we do have to be honest some of the dresses were utter disappointments while others gave us that warm feeling inside when you know that you have seen a definite purchase.

Now we would like to make the note that J.Crew could have done a better job of displaying the dresses. Since the trunk show was set up directly across from their concerige desk it made the space a little tight for our liking.

However, this was a perfect opportunity to see the dresses up front and personal. Kudos to J.Crew for developing and executing the trunk show because Brides were able to touch the fabric and assess the dress based on its actual look & feel and not just from a picture.

The Slub silk Penelope gown was definitely our first choice. The dress is made of silk which surprised us because alot of the J.Crew dress that are made out of silk have a more stiff look to them. This dress was amazingly soft and sexy draping the body delicately but giving attention to all the right places.

We picked the Silk Taffeta Ruffle Wrap dress as our fav because it is versitale. When a Bride picks this dress for her bridesmaids, she is giving them the option of being able to wear this dress again. This is not only a bridesmaids' dress but it can also be worn to work, out to dinner with clients, cocktails and church. We also love the shape of the dress and the ruffles that cascade down the collar of the dress to the tye closure.

We would suggest that if you live in the cities listed below that you go and see the dresses in person before you make a purchase online. Who wants to deal with the hassle of returns!
