We Asked LearnVesters If They Would Purchase A J.Crew Or Ann Taylor Wedding Dress...Would You?


The picture-perfect wedding of little girls’ dreams usually focuses on one main (namely white) item: the dress.

While most brides would agree that it’s important to feel beautiful that day, many also admit that they don’t have to spend that much money on a dress to be worn once. We are on a mission to find dresses that meet both your style and budget standards.

Yesterday we asked LearnVesters if they would consider buying a J. Crew or Ann Taylor wedding dress. Our faithful readers responded via Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook, and we wanted to share some comments with you.

@suziesavings tweeted, “Ann Taylor is so good with petites…I can imagine that when the day comes, I’ll consider shopping with them!”

@CPierceVT told us that her friend’s bridesmaids wore “perfectly elegant” J. Crew dresses with clean and fresh silhouettes.

On Tumblr, however, LV reader A Bit Of Silliness agreed that the dresses were beautiful, but that they were way beyond her budget. And The Deepz told us that she’d be willing to spend that amount of money on a wedding dress if it didn’t make her nauseous.

Do you agree? What do you think about these styles? Is the price right? We’d love to hear what type of dresses you’d be willing to buy for your wedding day!
