Mr. Library and I are getting married on July 17, but because of Catholic rules, our marriage will not be accepted by the Catholic church until we have it blessed inside a church (we’re getting married on a covered bridge).
The Catholic blessing ceremony (is it really a ceremony? I’m not sure…) will be in August after we get back from our honeymoon and settle in a little bit. I need to find an appropriate white dress for the ceremony. I am hoping to find something about knee-length with some coverage in the chest area.
Anyone have any good suggestions of where to look for this dress? Thanks!

J.Crew! But that could add up in price. I like the Antonio Milani line for Dillard’s right now. They’ve got a lot of nice white dresses that you could wear forever (and they are fairly conservatively cut). Dillard’s seems to have a nice selection of that line on their 50-70% off racks.

I’m wearing the BCBG applique dress as my wedding dress. Its pricey at Nordstroms but I found mine on ebay for about 25% off the in store price. There are some really cute vintage dresses on etsy too!

If you want something a little bit fancy–try a bridesmaid dress that comes in cream/ivory! I noticed that some of them do. I also agree with the J Crew suggestion, but maybe in their general section, not in their wedding section because it’s pricey.
Can you tell me more about this blessing ceremony? I am a Catholic getting married at a non-Denominational ceremony, and am therefore very interesetd in this blessing ceremony.

Some pretty bridesmaid options:

The blessing ceremony is something that our priest has set up for us. According to what has been explained to me, the Catholic church won’t record our marriage on Mr. Library’s Catholic record (is there a better name for the piece of paper with the dates of all of the faith progressions on it?) unless we have it in a church. Our ceremony is outside, so we were told that we need to go to a church and have the priest bless us there. I guess it makes us official in the eyes of the Catholic church. Our real anniversary will be the day we get married, but according to the Catholic record, it will be August 22.
