I need a short white wedding dress for my reception. I want it to still be “bridal”. Our reception is nontraditional–no dinner/dancing in hall…it’s a night on the town! So I definitely can’t be in a regular long dress. I already have my wedding dress which is the traditional route and I love it, so I’d love it to have a taffetta sweetheart top since that’s my favorite part of my dress. Any ideas where to find the perfect sexy little white dress? 🙂
I really still want it to be clear that it’s bridal, but I’m not afraid to have fun with it. I just have no idea where to look!

How much do you want to spend? most bridal lines have a little white dress collection starting from davids bridal all the way to pricier lines like Amsale

I love these from David’s Bridal
Definitely consider a short, white bridesmaid dress as an alternative. It will probably be a lot cheaper than the short wedding dresses, but still have the bridal element that white dresses bought from a dept. store won’t.

I got mine at Priscilla of Boston – they have a large selection but tend to be a little pricey for a second dress (I’m only wearing the one short dress for ceremony and reception). Nordstrom’s has a decent selection online, though and a lot of them are in the $100-$200 range. http://shop.nordstrom.com/c/wedding-bride-party-dresses?origin=topnav

I’d like to stay under $500 🙂
I like the first one from David’s but I wasn’t a fan of the back (when I tried it on, it was goofy on me…the back zip made me look “lumpy” on that particular style.
I love strapless styles, and I’m super petite (5’1 in heels!!) so finding something that doesn’t shrink me is important.
Since it’s the “after” dress, over the top styles are welcome. 🙂

These are by BCBG:
You can also search Suzi Chin – she tends to do a lot of SWDs. Both brands are available at major department stores like Macy’s and Nordstrom.

It’s a Unique-Vintage dress. It is white. This dress is new without tags. It has been tried on approx. 3 times. It is a size 10 and for reference I am 5’2” without heels and am a 38C, I wear size 9-11 pants in juniors. It comes with a black sash. Sorry the sash looks odd in the photo, I tied it wonky…

One of the Blogger Bees sells this dress on her etsy shop and it was only $130. She looked amazing in it and she and her mom make them. If you want the shop, I will pm it to you.
