Just a thought, a lot of bridesmaid dresses can be ordered in bridal colors like white, ivory, etc. so don’t rule them out. They can be more simple and less flashy.

It’s your wedding- whatever you wear will be appropriate!  It doesn’t have to be white, or poofy, or even a dress at all.  What do you wear when you want/need to be more dressed up?

I also normally dress casually and value comfort… my dress was blue, and wasn’t really a dress (top+skirt).  Best part is that I can wear it again =)

If it makes you feel any better, offbeat bride has all kinds of brides that are wearing all sorts of things, including brides in pants: http://offbeatbride.com/2007/09/brides-in-pants#referrer

Wear whatever makes you feel pretty and special =)

If the dresses at Jcrew are too formal you can always pair them with a wrap or cardigan to dress them down. And wear flats, not heels.

Another site that has some great dresses is  http://www.shabbyapple.com

I always thought if I were going to do a courthouse wedding (and I’d SO still have a professional photographer) it would be cute to wear something "Stepford Wife" inspired. Knee length but poofy skirted, fitted-top, with a big bow on the back and a little pillbox hat. If that’s not your taste, maybe a skinny white pencil skirt and a  white button up tucked in with some SOOO fabulous shoes? Carry a simple bouquet to feel more "bride-like" maybe…

Add a bouquet and a little birdcage veil, and ANYTHING will look bride-like!

I love the very classic, 50’s look of a nice, sharp suit. Pencil skirt, pants, whatever, any color will do. And like snmcdowell said, stick a birdcage veil on it and you’re a bride!
