I need ideas as I am running out of time and patience! I have a beautiful Allure gown for our wedding reception in June, but we’re getting legally married in the US Virgin Islands in January and I still have not found a short dress appropriate for the occassion. I am only 5’3”, and a size 18-20W (I have a very large chest). I look best in V neck dresses with a natural waist (no empire). I would prefer a light color – ivory, white, etc. – but also open to pretty much anything else at this point.

I don’t know if this will help. But I found this dress on jormalsbridal.com. ive never heard of them. But it looks like a jasmine’s bridal type website. You could also try JcPenny or macys something like that I’m sure they have a beautiful white dress. It wont be a wedding gown persay but you can save a lot of money that way. Also Nordstrom might have something. I know they have some bridal stuff

Thanks for the suggestion. I definitely am not set on a wedding dress. Something weddingy will be close enough. The style you suggested would not work with my chest (40H)

I feel your pain, I’m a 40F and a size 18. Fitting the girls into a dress is hard!
What about something like this (from Davids Bridal):

Maybe you can start with something you like. If its long just try it on and if you like it talk to alterations and see if they will make it short for you. I’ve seen a lot of brides cut up a wedding dress to dance in for the reception to a tea legnth.
