I really like the first and third ones! I found this one in the prom section at my local marshall’s. I was considering getting it as a reception dress!

I have noticed that too about white prom dresses. I like the first and fifth one. Very pretty dresses!

After my last fitting, my seamstress told me there was no way I was doing my choreographed first dance in my actual dress because it’s far too heavy. So I picked up this prom dress for $129 from dillards!

I saw some random Instagram picture a few weeks ago that I thought for sure was a bridal picture because the girl was wearing a beautiful white dress and holding a BOUQUET. Then I read the caption ‘Prom 2017’ – I was like WTF?! It’s been a while for me, but I definitely don’t remember too many white, bridal looking prom dresses in high school!

I do however, think it’s a very cost effecvtive way to get a good wedding dress!

I looked at prom dresses when I was dress shopping last year! I seriously considered this one.

misschic94 :  definitely! If you hadn’t said the ones you posted were prom dresses, I would have assumed they were from a bridal site – the 4th one even has a train!

misschic94 :  Thank you! I’m not sure if the picture shows it well, but the top layer of the dress has glitter. My favorite thing in the world!

misschic94 :  Me too! I ended up wearing this dress from Unique Vintage, with a tulle skirt I got on Etsy over it for the ceremony.

The dress I wore for my first wedding came from a prom dress website, it wasn’t white, it was pale yellow and blue (some part of me must have known to save the white for later 😍) but it was a beautiful dress, very well made, and only $180
