Philly Bees, I am looking for suggestions on where to go dress shopping. I am not really looking for a bridal shop so much as a nice dress shop.
The traditional wedding dress just isn’t in my budget, it isn’t "me", etc. I am hoping to just find a nice dress off the rack somewhere, probably not white, maybe green, not too formal as it will be an outdoor wedding, but formal enough that it shows I am honoring the occasion.
I strolled through Macy’s dress section, but had a hard time finding anything in my size (0-2).

I would try some of the dress shops along Walnut Street, starting maybe with BCBG, which can be expensive, but still not as much as a full-fledged wedding dress. Then maybe try Ann Taylor and Anthropologie. As the holidays get closer you’ll have more options in terms of longer dresses, but right now you’ll probably have a better chance with lighter colors. Good luck!

Hello Shy Violet, Here at Heartfelt Planning (www.heartfelt planning.com) we suggest Nordstorms for a fabulous evening gown that can be used in the way you have described "not too formal as it will be an outdoor wedding, but formal enough that it shows I am honoring the occasion". They have gowns ranging in prcies, from dark to light colors, from halter to spaghteti straps. Nordstorm is located in King of Prussia, not too far from Philadelphia, we hope that this was incredibly helpful.
