helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

While I was in NYC last week I had the pleasure of attending some fabulous wedding industry events! I am so excited to share some of this fun with you! The first event was for J.Crew's Bridal Boutique– a physical bridal salon located on Madison Ave. in NYC where you can actually try on the wedding and bridesmaid dresses from J.Crew!!

Bridal Boutique

While I've always admired J.Crew from afar due to my limited budget, alot of their bridal line is actually pretty reasonable! They have lots of wedding gowns under $1,000 and more than a few under $500 so you can still get that fabulous J.Crew style even on a smaller budget. Their bridesmaids dresses, while most are $150 or more, are dresses that your bridesmaids actually CAN AND WILL wear again. So if you can get multiple uses out of them I definitely consider them budget-savvy. 🙂

Not only does the salon carry gowns and bridesmaids attire, but you can also find lots of other bridal items,
some of which are exclusive to the J.Crew Bridal Boutique including:
