Any potential bride or groom on the hunt wedding gear knows that J. Crew offers an affordable yet chic range of bridesmaids dresses, suits and gowns.
Imagine the excitement of many brides right now! This past week, the retailer opened its very first wedding boutique on Madison Avenue in New York City.
Modeled in the style of a French salon, the store’s main floor houses a “by appointment only” showroom, featuring hand-beaded gowns, Leah C. couture headpieces, as well as four private suites fitted with two dressing rooms, which can be booked by appointment. (The floors are also made from reclaimed wood for a worn-in, vintage feel, which delights the Eco-Activist in me!)
The boutique’s offerings are a broader range of what is offered online: shoes, jewelry, gowns, suits. In addition to the clothing, the boutique also offers personalized service with a wedding specialist who can coordinate wedding fashion down to the itty-bittiest (or biggest) details such as the rehearsal dinner and even honeymoon!
Gowns range in price from $295 – $3500, suits range in price from $98 + $198 (pants and jacket) – $195 + $475 for Tuxedo pants and Jacket.
For people who can’t travel to New York, J. Crew has 7 other stores that offer a wedding shop and wedding specialist as well as a selection of gowns, suits and bridesmaids gowns online.
