Our wedding’s at a historical park. We’re going for a “vintage country summer picnic” kind of feel. I am in love with this 20s-ish style dress (it would need a slip underneath, which is fine by me). I would probably want it altered to sleeveless.
This is the back view (the front neckline is kind of boat-neck; it’s really pretty):
Plus, it is SUPER cheap.

That is really pretty! I love it!! It looks perfect for a vintage picnic style wedding!! Awesome find!! 🙂 I would save the arms if you get them taken off-Maybe you’ll find a use for the fabric !!! 🙂 Rhonda

It’s pretty, but I would recommend going to a western outfitter store. They have dresses similiar to this AND you can try them on.
But that’s just me, I don’t like to buy clothes online.

Love it!!! And it sounds as if it would suit your wedding. Personally, I think I like the sleeves, and I’m having a hard time picturing the dress sleeveless. Of course maybe it’s just hard to tell without seeing the front view.

I love the Scala dress too.
If that’s the style you are going for, definitely check out the Nataya dresses.
and here also:
Also, the victorian trading company carries Nataya dresses and other dresses too and overall I just love their catalog!
My dress is vintage-y but a different era and probably too long for what you’re wedding will be like and I don’t know your budget but still, here it is:
And here is another made by the same designer (Jacquelin Exclusives):
Hope this helps!

@mrsv2be: lol I’m definitely not looking for western wear (definitely not my style at all), and it was super cheap online so it’s no big loss if it doesn’t fit or doesn’t suit me. Thanks, though.
@[email protected]: Aw, thanks! You’ve been so supportive with everything 🙂
Thanks everyone for the pretty suggestions! The problem is, it will be summer, so I definitely don’t want polyester, and no full-length. As you can see, it’s been a slightly difficult and frustrating dress-shopping experience so far, haha.

@Catstax: I would definitely check out Nataya then. Lots of airy fabrics and most are knee length to tea length. But the dress on etsy you posted, I can see it with shorter or no sleeves, totally!

@MsInterpret: The Nataya line is gorgeous and really affordable! Thanks so much 🙂

@Catstax: You’re welcome. The Red Dress shop (or something like that?) link I posted earlier seems to have the largest selection but I just found a website, “Romance of Yesteryear” and they had some Nataya on clearance.
They are very affordable for a wedding dress IMO. My problem is, I want them for NON wedding use and when looked at as everyday wear they stop being so affordable!

Try eBay for Nataya dresses. I got mine for $100 NWT when it was going for $198 else where.

@Catstax- Love the dress, but I would recommend just shortening the sleeves- vintage dresses had sleeves! It would look perfect
