It’s pretty, but I would recommend going to a western outfitter store. They have dresses similiar to this AND you can try them on.

But that’s just me, I don’t like to buy clothes online.

Love it!!! And it sounds as if it would suit your wedding. Personally, I think I like the sleeves, and I’m having a hard time picturing the dress sleeveless. Of course maybe it’s just hard to tell without seeing the front view.

It’s pretty!

I love the Scala dress too.

If that’s the style you are going for, definitely check out the Nataya dresses.

and here also:

Also, the victorian trading company carries Nataya dresses and other dresses too and overall I just love their catalog!

My dress is vintage-y but a different era and probably too long for what you’re wedding will be like and I don’t know your budget but still, here it is:

 

And here is another made by the same designer (Jacquelin Exclusives):

 

 

Hope this helps!

@Catstax:  I would definitely check out Nataya then.  Lots of airy fabrics and most are knee length to tea length. Smile  But the dress on etsy you posted, I can see it with shorter or no sleeves, totally!

@Catstax: You’re welcome. The Red Dress shop (or something like that?) link I posted earlier seems to have the largest selection but I just found a website, “Romance of Yesteryear” and they had some Nataya on clearance.

They are very affordable for a wedding dress IMO. My problem is, I want them for NON wedding use and when looked at as everyday wear they stop being so affordable! Tongue out

Try eBay for Nataya dresses. I got mine for $100 NWT when it was going for $198 else where.

@Catstax- Love the dress, but I would recommend just shortening the sleeves- vintage dresses had sleeves!  It would look perfect
