Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had fantastic weekends. We went hiking, which = awesomeness. And afterward we stumbled upon the cutest little wedding location… more on that, later. Now, on to more important things… like THIS:

Have you heard? I’m sure you’ve seen chatter about this, but do you know the unbelievable news, in full? First this happened, and now this is happening ↘
That’s right; J.Crew is opening its very own Bridal Boutique, right in the heart of New York City. This is kind of a big deal. And here’s why: I love a lot of what J.Crew offers in its wedding line. Like, overall, love it. Love a handful of wedding gowns, looooove a lot of their bridesmaids dresses, and adoooore their bitty baby frocks (aka flower girl looks). What do I hate? That I CAN’T TRY ANY OF THEM ON.
I’m really looking forward to just plain loving everything about J.Crew’s bridal line, now that they’re opening a store at 769 Madison Avenue, right down the block from where I live – just kidding, I so don’t live on Madison Avenue. But it’s a nice little ride on the train from where I’m located, and I will be taking that ride as soon as this boutique opens. Hallelujah, J.Crew. You finally opened a freaking bridal shop. Jeez. Took you long enough. (Awww, you know I’m hard on you because I love you.)

Now, while I enjoy their bridal gowns immensely, I have a little news for you… it’s really their bridesmaids’ gowns that rock my socks off. In fact, I think I’d even consider wearing one of them on my wedding day. Whoa! Yes, I know, weird. (Well, really only if I did the City Hall thing.) But seriously, if you take a look at them… well, they’re just gorgeous. So I HIIIGHLY recommend handing each of your maids a swatch and sending them on their merry way to find the perfect dress for your big day. Ooh, and some jewelry and shoes to match. :D
(I feel compelled to note here that it’s a real shame they don’t put their magazine images online – pretty much none of these pics do the dresses justice. Like, at all. Please order the catalog; so much better – so much more eye candy to eat up. Believe me.)

So, are you interested in having a consultation (aka try-on-fest!) with one of their bridal consultants? Great news: even though they’re not set to open until early this Summer, they’re already taking appointments. Which is interesting to me. Anyway, want one? Just email Kate@j.crew.com!

Ooh, I almost forgot! Two things:
1) For everyone who was subjected to my teaser about a certain “PERFECT GOWN” the other day on Twitter, fear not; I will be revealing this incredible find (not J.Crew, by the way) in the near future. Quick hint: it’s got it all.
2) I found the CUTEST LITTLE SHORT WHITE DRESS the other day. I’m seriously going to post about it this week, I think tomorrow. It’s sooooo cute. Just wait ’til you see it!!!!!
