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.

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.

I have a really cute dress for sale – it’s on ebay – buy now for $65 or bidding starts at $35 – here is the link


I posted a thread on weddingbee classified earlier for more pictures:


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.
