So, this is a combination question. My september wedding is a very casual beach wedding (BBQ, barefoot, etc), and I’ve had trouble finding a dress I like that is a good mix between being somewhat casual and something that still feels like a wedding dress. Untillll I found whiterunway.com! I almost instantly found two dresses that feel like they could be THE one. like, I really love them. The problem is, the two dresses I am really leaning towards are really considered bridesmaid dresses. SO, question one….has anyone ever known of a bride that wore a white bridesmaid dress in place of a ‘real’ wedding dress? and two…does anyone have any experience ordering from whiterunway.com? I KNOW there are tons of horror stories with online dress shopping, BUT with a quick google search, there are TONS of real pictures of weddings that have used dresses from the site (that look quality and beautiful), and lots of positive reviews. I’m mainly only seeing pictures of weddings that have used the dresses for bridesmaids, however. Opinions?
here are a couple links to the dresses, which would be in white.

if you’re getting married in the dress, then it’s a wedding dress. doesn’t matter if the label says “bridesmaid” or “prom” or whatever. wear the dress that you love. no one will know the difference.
i love the ingrid one!

The ingrid dress will proabably be more flattering. The skirt on the sienna is very odd.

I can absolutely vouch for White Runway. Ive been to their showrooms in both Sydney and Melbourne and have tried on both those dresses in person, as I am considering them for my bridesmaids, however having said that they are stunning dresses that could be used for any occasion.
If you follow white runway on Instagram you’ll see that people have worn those dresses, particularly the Sienna for other red carpet events and such.
Having tried them both on, and seen them on my bridesmaids, i favour the Sienna. Very flattering with the draping. It really comes down to the neckline for those though, neither of my bridesmaids busts suited the one shoulder of the Ingrid. But ive seen it be very flattering on others, you just have to have the right shape.
Look up the PGP Sarah on White runway. I think that would make a stunning wedding dress!

Sorry, I’ve never used that site so can’t help on that.
But just want to throw it out there, those two styles in particular can be found in other bridesmaid dresses. Two Dessy dresses look quite simiar:
I’m not sure about the Lela Rose but I know the After Six is closer to $200 so worth checking out. You should also be able to find them at a retailer so you can try them on to see how you feel wearing them.

I don’t want that “bride” look (white dress, etc) and I found a bridesmaid dress I fell in love with. I’m having an outdoor picnic wedding with a vintage twist and I think my dress is fun! So do what you want and what makes YOU feel good. 🙂
