@sweetpea3363:  Macy’s has a good selection of white cocktail dresses. If you want something longer to go over it, look on etsy for a tulle skirt that you can tie over it. There was a pin on pinterest (sorry I didn’t pin it, I just looked at it) where a girl had done this and it was beautiful. Kind of made me wish I had gone that route it was so cute.

Ditto on Macys or Nordstroms.  You can order and try them on at home!!  I went that route b/c I also wanted (and ended up wearing) a cocktail length dress.  Nordstroms also has free shipping each way, so there’s no reason not to just have a fashion show in your bedroom 🙂


Ann Taylor and JCrew also have some great shorter options.


I ended up getting a discontinued Alfred Angelo dress.  I’m pretty sure it’s from their now-defunct Little White Dress collection, b/c I haven’t been able to find a single picture of it online.

I love that more ladies are rocking the short dresses.  For some of us, a big gown just isn’t “us”, and isn’t it all about feeling like yourself on your big day?


Good luck–and post some pictures! 🙂
