I went with my mum to a few boutique stores and just browsed for some one off dresses. I stayed clear of anything that had the word bridal in it. It doesnt need to be from a bridal store! Should try online. You might have luck! 🙂

My mom can be a pain to shop with too, so I sent my sister with her instead. I just didn’t want to deal with the stress (which there was plenty of, my sister kept calling me telling me how picky my mom was being).

Hope you find something!

Sounds like shopping with my Future Mother-In-Law.  She HATES clothes shopping with a fiery passion of a thousand suns.  We didn’t try bridal stores but a bunch of deparment stores.  She finally bought a dress, found another one she liked better, and returned the first.  Shopping with my mom was much more pleasant.  (May have something to do with size availablility.  They’re both like 5’1″-2″ but Future Mother-In-Law discovered she needs a size 22 while my mom is a more common size 14).

@kermie: 10 HOURS?!  Wow, if I tried to keep my Future Mother-In-Law out shopping for 10 HOURS she probably would have tried to kill me (or cancel the wedding, or resign to showing up in her work/office clothes).  I think we made it about 4 maybe? and that included lunch.
