I’m currently looking for my wedding dress and all my girlfriends find me weird cause I’m looking for something totally different than the long wedding dress. Cause I remember my sister ans sister in law wedding and it was hell to go the bathroom with the big beautiful dress!!! Need like three person just for that!!!! Don’t get me wrong I really love those dress but it just not for me.
I’m doing a cinema theme and I was thinking of a short 1950 wedding dress but can’t seem to find one in montreal. I find one that I really love but onetsy! I’m a bit scare to order it without even try it first. Also the only one I really love is really really not expensive compare to what I see here in montreal. So I’m asking myself maybe it’s look great on picture but not in reality. So I don’t know what to do!!! If I listen to my friends they telling me that you have to at leat try it before cause sometime when it’s on you, you don’t like it as much!
Here the link for the dress I really like, let me know what you think of the dress. Does it look cheap?
A girl who really need help to find a wedding dress cause the wedding is in june 2013. It’s coming really fast!!

I think that dress is beautiful. Etsy is full of gorgeous dresses!
As long as you get measured correctly (go to a seamstress) then it should fit you fine.
If you love it, then buy it. It’s a very good price, and if it’s not as good as in the photo you can always sell it on.
ETA: Looking at her feedback, you would need to order it ASAP so you have time to decide what to do with it.

You could always try on similar long dresses – ones with sweetheart necklines and natural waists. That’s a pretty universally flattering shape, but it could just help you feel more confident in your choice.

If you’re based in Montreal try a trip down to David’s bridal in Ottawa- my dress came in from them yesterday (yay!), and customer service was great. I thin Galina has some yealength dresses which arbeautiful!

ahh! Love this dress, this is similar to the sunday rose or sv415 (what I’m wearing) only a shorter version. This is not cheap, it’s gorgeous, go for it. I think it goes w/ your theme well. (I would however suggest trying on tea length, as I thought I wanted one to, but when I put it on, it didnt work for me and I ended up doing traditional). But I love this dress and I love the details and fabric, and Love that you’ve personalized the look and made it your own on your wedding day. Hope you post pics in it when it arrives! 🙂

Ooooooh! Love your style – this exact dress was one of my favorites for a while too! Don’t worry, it totally looks bridal and gorgeous. 🙂 I agree with a PP that the only thing is, go try on a couple tea length dresses FIRST, with a full skirt like this one if you can, to really get a feel for how it looks on you. I was dead-set on a tea-length dress for my park wedding, but I’m relatively short and it ended up skewing my proportions quite a bit and making me look shorter and rounder. I ended up with a longer empire dress to look taller. So, make sure the silhouette is flattering on you and then you’ll be golden 🙂

no it’s not weird to not want the big dress. I didn’t want a big dress either. I wanted more of a flowy dress, not ballgown

@dirbyden: I don’t think it’s weird – I’m the same way, I didn’t want a dress that looked and felt like a “bridal costume”, ya know?
That dress is gorgeous and what a great deal!
I ended up with a $100 dress from Macy’s. I just wanted something simple and I couldn’t fathom spending more than a couple hundred dollars. (I’m fine with spending 2,000 on booze though! lol)

I’m from Toronto and I totally went for a short dress!! It’s way more me. It was a summer farm wedding so it was very appropriate. Also, I can wear the dress again as a cocktail dress with a different belt and accessories so it’s not a «one day» dress 😉
I love the dress you posted!!! Vintage and classic.
Here’s my dress for reference:
I actually used a flower belt similar to the one you posted:
