Bridesmaid dresses (some of which are super elaborate, LOL) can often be ordered in white, and they come in much faster than bridal gowns. (They’re also MUCH cheaper, too, but many are still of very nice quality.) Check Alfred Angelo’s website, for instance, to see if you like any of their styles. Sounds like you’re well on your way to accessorizing, too!

i second village_skeptic about bridesmaid dresses. here’s one of my favorites:

for department stores, you can check out saks, nordstrom, and ann taylor.

there are a few other options:

1. you can look into buying 2nd hand dresses from here and here.

2. many brands, such as Casablanca and Maggie Sottero, have a “destination” line which has dresses that are more simple. you can see if you can find floor samples of those dress.

good luck!

I’ve always loved Kate’s reception dress.  Sometimes, bridal stores/salons have dresses (samples) that they are willing to sell that day at a heavy discount. Also, I’m not sure what your budget is but Priscilla of Boston is going out of business and they are only open until Dec 31st, you may want to call one if you have it locally to see if they have anything to sell and it may be at an amazing discount.

I looked at Anthropology bridal dresses for you, but the price point is much higher.  I was going to recommend Nordstrom & Lord & Taylor, but I see the pp’s did that for me already.

Last but not least, Davids Bridal made a replica of Kate’s reception dress, call around and see if they would sell you a sample or have one in stock to sell : )

@Whitt1212: Have you looked into Ann Taylor’s wedding line? I always love how their petite stuff fits on me, though I never tried their wedding dresses.
