My sister’s getting married this summer, and she’s looking for a short dress. She needs to stay under $500, and bonus points if she can order it online, since she lives in Spain. Show me your short dresses for inspiration! And, if you don’t mind, please post the price.

She starts at $595, BUT it’s a Dolly Couture and she has other dresses that are lower than this. dollycouture.com I think her dresses start at $300 something.

@Miss Tattoo: Thank you! This is the style I was looking for, but I couldn’t remember the designer. I sent her the link to the new Anthropologie dresses, and while she loved them, they’re kinda out of her price range.

Those were I had saved. The one with the red shoes is less than $500.
Davids Bridal has some nice short dresses:
http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Tea-Length-Satin-Gown-with-3D-Floral-Details-WG3165_Bridal-Gowns-Shop-By-Silhouette-Short –this was my favorite. It is super flattering on many body types.
http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Satin-Tea-Length-Gown-with-Box-Pleats-WG3038_Bridal-Gowns-Shop-By-Silhouette-Short this one cut me in half and made my waist look big. I can’t believe the price on this gown. It felt just as nice as the Dolly Couture dresses.
http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Short-Dress-Featuring-3D-Floral-Appliques-ES9895_Bridal-Gowns-Shop-By-Silhouette-Short I found this one to be too youthful, it felt a bit like a prom dress on me but I’ve seen it on lots of brides and it was darling. It is more informal than the galina tealength gown.
Here’s a photo of my favorite bride of all time. She is wearing the Dolly Couture Manhattan.
And here’s me sporting a double chin with my idol Dolly Couture. I did not pick this gown but it was beautifully made and the fabric was a very nice quality.

i’d suggest looking at bridesmaid dresses. a lot of them come in white and are under the $500 budget. check out this link to watters: http://www.watters.com/BrowseByColor/WtooDresses/White/#Style:919 to get you started.
