I need to get my measurements sometime this week or next. But I’ve been looking at some dress porn. All of these are under $200, which I like.
This is my favorite from what I’ve seen. I’d get the sash in black (or blue and wear matching blue pumps :P). Very vintage-looking. I think I would rock it with my jet black pixie cut.
Also, I’ll be wearing thick-framed plastic glasses with my dress. I’m not getting contacts just for one day and I’d like to be able to see at my own wedding! I may get a pair of really cool, blingy frames if I find ones that’ll be perfect. Maybe a pop of color that matches my bouquet or something. My man’s always had a thing for bespectacled women anyway, so he loves this idea.
A close runner-up, also a black or blue sash.
A close third:
I love the back:
I would like this one in white too. I love everything else about it, but the beadwork on the bust looks a little bulky to me. It’s a lot.

Love your ideas for the first dress I’m picturing it and it sounds so pretty and vintage! I also really like the last dress you posted. Have you tried either on? Id like to see pics 🙂

I like the first dress it’s lovely. I also found a few tea length dresses on Unique Vintage that are awesome as well.

Tea-length bride here as well! I love the first and last gowns- but not too sure about blinged up specks with all that going on in the last one…. I think the first would look awesome with the glasses your describing!

Tea length bride here too!! I love the options you picked, but if you go with quirky, blinged out glasses, I kind of think the second dress (the one with the sash) would look best with that style 🙂 JMO

@loveisallyouneed: JJ’s House doesn’t have store locations so I’ll have to decide which one I want and order it in my size, then probably have it adjusted here and there. I’m a bit iffy about just ordering something I see online, but I hate trying on clothes. They do have a return policy if I hate it or need a completely different size. Luckily, we haven’t even set a date yet. We just know we want an autumnal wedding and we’re still considering various venues.
I’m pretty dead-set on the first dress. I’ll show it to my husband in case for some reason he hates it, though I don’t think he will at all.

@CorvusCorax: I haven’t heard of them before but now I’m definatley going to check them out. I doubt your husband would hate it in any way becuase the dress itself and the plans you have with your glasses and sash are going to be gourgeous 🙂 if you go through with ordering it please post pics! I’m starting to consider tea length dress for myself now after this post
