I bought this Tadashi Shoji dress from Saks a while ago, and it was listed with eveningwear, not Bridal. I think it is discontinued now, but it was a smoking deal and looks appropriate (we are having an outdoor wedding and reception).  It is also incredibly comfortable (there is a lot of give in the fabric), and it is long enough to trail a bit in the back.

@eecuadrado:  My dress is listed as a bridal dress, but it’s not very bridal to me (other than being white) and I think you could wear it when not getting married (if you just felt like wearing white, which I never would, but anyway)

My dress is marketed as a bridal dress, but can be made in various colours.  The colour I ordered it in (dark blush/dusty rose) was worn by one of the members of Lady Antebellum’s wife on the red carpet, but hemmed in a high low fashion.

This is an Alfred Sung bridesmaid’s dress from the Dessy site, that I’m going to get. Going for city chic, since we’re doing it in Central Park. Having my hair down and pairing it with some light pink, d’orsay Jimmy Choos. Might get some sparkle added to the little sleeves, but I just love it. Can’t wait to try it on!

Mine was in the “evening gown” section of Macy’s, but I’m not sure where else you’d wear a long white lacy gown?!?  But I liked the pricetag, $120.
