A Surprising J.Crew Bridesmaid

You all are going to think I’ve completely lost my marbles this Monday morning, but stick with me! If you’ve been planning your wedding for any length of time you surely know not all brides have the same fashion sense, and thankfully we’ve gotten to a place where this is embraced.  You don’t want to wear white? Great!  Don’t want a long frilly ballgown? Fabulous! 

And what about your ‘maids? We’re all completely over the “put a big bow on their butts and make them ‘ugly’ ensembles”, right? Even so, maybe the dresses you’ve seen on the rack just don’t…jive with your wedding theme. Well please feel free – even excited! – to think outside of the traditional box.  If J.Crew just isn’t for you….think again. Maybe it is.

Scrap the idea of bridesmaids dresses all together!

Whoa! I know I probably just offended a bunch of you with this. A button down white shirt with a pencil skirt and cardigan? Have I lost my mind? No.  Add a great nude peep-toe, a long beautiful necklace, maybe a flower hair clip, and you’re in business for a casual garden wedding.

See? 😉

Love it! These ladies have the same basic uniform but chose shirts and accessories that worked for them.  Just another example of what an open mind can do for you! Added bonus: Your girls can honestly wear these clothes again!
