    Honestly, if you can find a dress off the rack that works I’d say go for it. YOu’re getting married – you can be dressier than your wedding party! You might have luck at J.Crew or a department store if you don’t want something SUPER fancy/princessy – DB is also having a huge sale right now.

    Well you could try going to a second hand place or buying off the rack and see if you can find a dress that needs no alterations. The only thing is you’re likely going to be very busy this week, so it will be hard to find time to search for the perfect dress that also fits you. 

    I bought my dress second hand and it needed no alterations. I got it around 2 months before my day, but I could have easily bought it a week before, it wouldn’t have mattered.

    I was worried my dress was “too fancy” for my rustic wedding too, but everyone told me I looked perfect and matched my venue very well. I think it’s pretty hard for the bride to be overdressed. 🙂

    I would get a fancy dress if that is what you want, it’s okay if you are fancier than the rest… you are the BRIDE! Go for it!

    If a new dress makes you happy, then go for it!  I don’t think a bride can be overdressed at her own wedding, especially if you choose something from an upscale deptartment store.  You can also call around to bridal salons and see if any dresses fitting your theme are available to immediate purchase and take home.  A flowy white dress is so pretty for beach themed weddings.  I say go for it and do what makes you happy.

    @Punky bridester:  Do you have a picture of the Craigslist dress? I think you should go for the dress! I mean, you don’t want to look back on your wedding day and regret the fact that you never got to look like a bride, you know? Maybe the OH can dress up as well! Or is he happy with just the board shorts?
