I will be the maid of honor and only attendant in an outdoor wedding this July (2013). The wedding is going to be a destination style, as it is being held on a river front, with a castle in the background. I am expecting the weather to be hot, so I really prefer a short dress and a light fabric. I think satin is too heavy.
My dress color needs to be in the coral family, leaning more toward a lighter shade (think DB coral reef) but I know this will vary by designer. I would LOVE to find a street dress instead of a bridesmaid’s dress, but because I am plus size, I am not having any luck.
I had a breast reduction but am still on the busty side so I don’t want strapless or one shoulder and I can’t have anything to deep plunging because of my scars. I don’t mind cleavage, just no JLo Versace style! I am over 40 so little club dresses are out. lol.
I checked Target and they do not have any coral dresses. JCrew does but not my size. V neck looks the best and DB has a cute jersey V neck but it only comes in Guava (which the bride doesn’t like).
Looking forward to any suggestions. If it is something I loved and could wear again, I would go over $200, but I would prefer not to. I was hoping to find some dept store options so that I could order and try on. DB is the only store I have been able to try any… they have a few there that are ok…it will have to be that if I don’t find anything else! Thanks!
