J Crew Bridal Boutique Grand Opening

Last Tuesday I attended a launch party for the first ever J Crew bridal boutique here in New York City. Darcy Miller hosted the event, and with Darcy + J Crew teaming up, I knew that I was in for a fabulous soiree.   What I didn’t expect was to see so many fabulous bridal bloggers there!

Vane (of Brooklyn Bride) and I hopped in one of these pedicabs when all the bridal bloggers headed to dinner after the party.  The wedding industry and the bridal blogging industry is actually quite small, so it’s great that we’re all able to run into each other regularly and catch up.

I love the chambray shirt trend because you can dress it up or dress it down. In fact I own the shirt below! :)

Perfectly folded cardigans in every possible color lined the walls.  The store has all the accessories you need for your wedding day, from perfume to purses, shoes, jewelry, belts, headpieces… even Essie nail polish in some of their most popular neutral shades!

That’s me in between Jillian of 100 Layer Cake and Liene of Blue Orchid Blog and Think Splendid.   Do I look any different now that I’m a mom of a 6 month old?! 8O

I think the peony has become the quintessential wedding flower.

    Oh man. How badly did I want that Streamer gown for my wedding? It was so gorgeous. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite mesh with my self-imposed $1000 limit on wedding spending!! I suppose I’d be a little more nuts to just like… buy it anyway to prance around the house in.

    What a beautiful store! I saw this preview on Martha Stewart and thought it was so cool that I got to see it on there! And now you’re giving us all a sneek peak inside! I love the look of the white button down shirt and the long elegant skirt…so classy for a mother of the bride. Beautiful colors of BM dresses! Thank you for sharing…PS you look beautiful Momma Bee! :)

    My girls are wearing JCrew…this store looks amazing! Getting BM dresses from JCrew was one of the easiest things I have done so far…one of the girls even had to exchange a dress that we got a discount and free shipping on b/c she recently found out she is expecting her second baby!!! :) A quick phone call and trip to the store and she had a new bigger dress in days…I highly recommend JCrew for BMs!

    J. Crew bride here! I was lucky enough to be able to try my dress on in the Georgetown store in DC, but they just had a small selection of dresses (I thank my stars they had mine), and a regular dressing room (albeit set apart from the others). How wonderful to be able to have the full, dress-buying experience at the new flagship wedding store! Part of me wishes my experience was a little more “typical”…
