So, we are having an afternoon wedding. Almost like a classy high tea. Light food and refreshing drinks. However, for all of our friends, and us (we are mid 20’s) we still want to go out after our actual reception. We are having a dry reception due to family memebers and what not. BUT afterwards, our bridal party has gottenus a huge party bus and we will get ready and go out downtown! Then Fiance and I will stay at our honeymoon suite at a downtown hotel.
Well — im looking for a dress to wear that night. I dont want to wear mine. Its not ballroom, but still, i think it will be a little big to be trapsing downtown. So i want something fun and flirty but still bridal. but not too expensive, bc I wasnt really expecting to do that at the beginning of wedding planning, but its whats happening now.
So, any ideas from the hive would be appreciated!! 🙂
ps im 5’2 and ill be wearing tall heels!! 🙂

Not sure how you feel about David’s Bridal, but they have some really cute short dresses in the $100-200 range. Here’s a satin one shoulder gown, a unique and slightly sassy dress, and a sweet strapless one. Any of them would look great with tall heels and you can still wear your veil or a cheaper birdcage to make sure you’re still ‘bridal’ while you’re out in the crowds.

@Mrs.Estep I do like that one a lot.. and I could add maybe a little something to jazz it up a bit. I really like the sparkle at the bottom! Thank you!!
@ NDBee How funny…. i was actually looking at 2 of those dresses. and the last one, with the stripes, is in my top 3 so far!! haha. Thank you as well!! And, yes, I plan on doing some kind of veil ish thing in my hair. I was even thinking a mini top hat with a mini veil. lol
@ JM1217 OMG, i LOVE that Windsor site… i will DEFFFFFF be browsing that!!! I love pretty much all of those dresses, and they arent that expensive! Thank you much!!

I would definitely look at David’s bridal, they have inexpensive bridal type dresses.
I think this is simple but pretty!

@JM1217: the “Carlyn” dress is amazing, with the seams & the tulle.
