Hard to tell without seeing you in anything but think about what cuts and styles of tops, dresses and skirts you look best in and maybe look for a white dress like that in a non-bridal store, like formal wear you’d be comfortable wearing just in white?

did you try on only chiffon dresses?  You might want to go back to DB and try on other styles

Also just wanted to add that if you can find a style that looks good than you can add what it does not have like straps cap sleeves whatever. Some bridesmaid dresses also come in white or ivory so check those. What a beautiful place for a wedding!

Oooh, that looks so gorgeous!  I’ve never been, but Savannah seems so magical.

When you say DB dresses don’t work for you, do you mean they aren’t flattering or you just don’t like them?  Or is it because everything’s strapless?  Do you have any pics of things you’ve tried on you’d want to post?

I don’t know your style, but I think this would be lovely in that setting, and you can order it to your measurements:

I also think if you can find a simple, matte satin or taffeta dress, something like this shrug (also customizable to your measurements) would be just the thing to top it:

But try to enjoy yourself shopping!  I know it’s frustrating (having my own dress crisis!), but when will we get to experience this particular frustration again??  =)
