I wore a short dress for my chapel wedding.  It was a Bridesmaid dress in white (only $98), so try looking for those as well.  Or try this site, they have cute looking vintage short dresses:  http://www.dollycouture.com/

Here’s my dress (Mori Lee Bridesmaid or Best Man dress)

I agree with finding a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress in white or ivory.   Although I’ve seen quite a few short dresses lately that I’m loving!

I am jumping on the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress train. They are less expensive, come in all kinds of lengths, and are less likely to make a scene in a public place.

However, knowing your desire for sleeves, what about something like this? http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Short-strapless-sheath-dress-9N9781_Bridal-Gowns-Shop-By-Size-Plus-Sizes

One more word of advice on the issue of sleeves… I’m a plus-sized gal myself. And yes, I have those things that flap under my arms like sad grandma wings. But usually a strapless or straps only dress is more flattering than attempting to put sleeves on. I know you’re self-conscious about them and I totally get it. (Please see self-deprecating grandma comment above.) However, sleeves the wrong length can emphasize that which you wish to conceal. While the abscence of sleeves really makes it an area where there’s no reason to look because there’s nothing going on.

Just a thought. You should do what you’re most comfortable with in the end. If you’re not comfortable, you’ll be fretting with that dress all day and it won’t be fun.

Try checking vintage/consignment shops and websites–dresses from the 50s typically have the sleeves you’re looking for but if they’re not short, they can always be cropped to the proper length.
