Easy Bridal Fashion

As my 3 year wedding anniversary approaches, I have found myself day dreaming of our special day, and one in particular detail: my wedding dress!

I’m not like most people, I did not find the wedding dress shopping experience to be fun; rather, I kinda hated every minute of it…(other than the good friends, good lunch, and even better champagne.) So after a disastrous experience, I took to the interwebs in search of my dream dress. Where did I find it? Only my favorite “Go To” store of all time, JCrew!

If you are a bride-to-be, don’t be afraid to order your dress online. Most places have free shipping AND returns, and feel free to order several and have a fashion show in the privacy of your own home! I would totally have a fashion show with these beauties…

  1. Chloe Dao, Olivia
  2. Ann Taylor, Silk Strapless Tiered Gown
  3. JCrew, Silk taffeta Sascha Gown
  4. JCrew, Cotton cady Erica dress
  5. JCrew, Jacquard jardiniere gown 
  6. JCrew, Bow monde gown


  1. Ok, let’s elaborate this story a little–Your best friend in the whole entire world emailed you a link with the title “If I was getting married this is the dress I would want” and you quickly fell in love. Since I wasn’t getting married anytime soon and you just so happened to be, it was free game. And it did looked absolutely amazing on you! P.s. That was the best champagne I’ve ever had…

  2. I tried this and learned that J. Crew wedding dresses can run a bit small, so be sure you call and talk to bridal advisor and get the right size. I ordered the same size JCrew dress I’m wearing right now and couldn’t come close to zipping it up. However, my local store was great about taking the return and it was so easy.

    I agree that traditional dress shopping is not magical and fun. What other time do you purposely try on expensive things that are the wrong size and then decide to buy it anyway? 🙂

  3. I love the jcrew dresses. I wish they had been around when I got hitched.

  4. @L Dubya: True story!

  5. @Haley: Thanks for the tip!

  6. @Danielle (elleinadspir): I know right, and most of them are fairly budge-friendly, as far as wedding dresses go anyway…
