Any suggestions of where to look? I’ve been EVERYWHERE in NYC. Finding short or tea length dresses aren’t a problem but for some reason long is impossible.
I’m getting married this January 2010 and my colors are white / pewter (gray…) & light blue kinda periwinkle-ish. Ideally I’d love it if it had some kind of vintage look.

I am also looking for long vintage looking gowns!
http://www.newport-news.com has a lot of pretty dresses for good prices and I remember seeing a few silvery and pale blue and purple dresses. There are some that look grecian…
I’m looking for plum colored dresses that look latin, so I wasn’t able to find anything for me, but I wish you all the best!
What is the style of your wedding gown?

Auro877: Welcome to Weddingbee…here’s what I found:
CEO528: Welcome to you also! Here’s what I found for you, too:
I think for both of you long is hard for you to find right now because of the season we are in. You might have to wait until closer to your weddings (depending on when they are) and I’m sure you’ll have more luck with more department store type of dresses. Otherwise, you can get some Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses from Bridesmaid or Best Man lines for a reasonable price.

Wow thanks! Those are great…
My dress is a Reem Acra modified A line in ivory satin with blue detiailing and a blue silk train. I got it at a sample sale – never could have afforded it otherwise!

If you do the no-frills program at RK bridal, you should be able to get them for under $150… mine were tea-length, but they were $130 with the no-frills program.
The no-frills program means that the girls had to measure themselves rather than being sized by RK, and find their own seamstresses rather than doing alterations at RK. RK basically just acts as the middle-man for the deal, since you can’t order directly from the manufacturer. I thought it was win-win, since I’ve heard mixed reviews about RK’s seamstresses anyway.
EDIT: The bridesmaids dresses we picked are normally $170-$200, based on pricing I did at other stores in NYC and the bridesmaids’ home towns, so the discount was pretty sizeable. There was a $40 charge for "plus-size" dresses, and a $14/dress charge to ship them to the bridesmaids, $8/dress for more than one dress going to the same address.
