Now that we’ve decided to elope, my dress ideas have changed drastically! We’re getting married at the courthouse next month! eeek. He still wants me to wear white and would love the dress be short. I was thinking a short (around the knee?), fitted, dress with boat neck and 3/4 length sleeves. A little vintage. A little curve hugging (he likes to see my figure).
I can’t find this dress ANYWHERE online 🙁
It’s winter… Can I get away with a knee length dress and heels without tights (ew.. it’s white!) … I’m planning on buying a cute wool coat as well. I’m pairing this with a birdcage veil!
Anyone see anything like this out in fabulous interwebs? Because I searched all night and NADA. :/
Help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks ladies!

@JuniperSage: have you considered buying a longer legnth dress and having a tailor shorten it to the legnth you want? it would be a cost effective way of getting exactly what you want.

Don’t know what your budget looks like, but Dolly Couture has some super cute vintage-inspired short gowns (like this one: http://www.dollycouture.com/collection/beverlywood-vintage-wedding-dress.html )

I’m doing a couthouse wedding in May before my big church wedding the following year (Fi is military) I got a cute white dress from Davids. They have other ones, check out the site, this one was under $100 and they will ship it to you. What about doing something like this (strapless) and getting a bolero?

@AirForceWife78: Yeah .. I think I might be considering the strapless option. If I did this, I’d get a faux fur bolero … I think that would killer with a birdcage veil!

@JuniperSage: Oh, that’s gorgeous! I also like PPs suggestion of altering a dress shorter if you’re having trouble finding a shorter dress you like.

Theres an ivory colored lace 3/4 sleeve dress from Liz Claiborne at jcpennys that when I saw in the store I was thinking ‘that would make an adorable court house wedding dress’ it’s has a vintage look to it, I have a link but I can’t figure out how to post a pic from my iPhone, heres the link hopefully it’ll work (its a moblie link so hopefully, fingers crossed it works)
Yay my first weddingbee post 🙂
