@Allyg:  

I had a reception dress that was a cocktail type dress. I got it at Dillards. Its by Adrianna Papell. It has a beautiful illusion neckline.

I wore it on the formal night of our honeymoon cruise and I got lots of compliments b/c the neckline is so amazing!

@Allyg:  Just in case the style I got above isn’t what you are going for I suggest looking on modcloth.com. They have some really pretty ones!

Also Nordstrom has a good selection.  If you enter Reception dress in the search line on Nordstrom.com, you’ll see lots of options.

@HannahGrace:  I tried the 1774NT on and if I hadn’t had to wear flat shoes (my H is the same height as me), I totally would have bought it.  Good luck. 🙂

@Karmagirl:  Awesome, thanks for the info! It looks so pretty online that I’ve half fallen in love with it even though it’s over my budget.

@Allyg Sorry for threadjacking!  I’m excited that you are into the shorter dresses too 🙂

@Allyg:  hello. I purchased the all lace dress from DB. It is super pretty. I wore it to my bridal shower, my wedding luncheon, and my rehersal dinner. I have pictures if you want to see.

this dress has a zipper all the way up the dress, which you can zip up a bit from the bottom for a nice little leggy effect.  Super bridal.
