Limited also has a wedding collection now, as does anthropologie. They might have the flowy dress you’re looking for!

Call ahead to the bridal salons, there should be some that have a slew of dresses for less than $1k. They’re also getting in tons of Spring 2011 dresses, so they should be selling their older samples at quite a bargain.

Have you considered looking at white bridesmaid dresses? Or have you looked at Bloomingdales/Nordstrom/Niemans?

Good luck!!

I love the suggestions above. I also thought I would throw in my experience. I was 4 weeks out to my wedding and still didn’t have  adress. I ordered from this website and everything came out beautifully and wiht the fastest shipping it came in my timeframe. They make custom sizes which I think would be a problem for you unless you fit everything right off the rack. When I sent in my measurements the dress fit me right out of the bag with nothing extra needed.



Here is my review.

My Dressilyme CHINA dress is ready!!!!

My Dressilyme CHINA dress is ready!!!! Part 2


Other than that the websites above from the other girls should get you what you need in time. I hope it all works out for you.

Definitely check out Nordstrom. They are really getting into making bridal salons in their stores. At the one near me they have set it up where they even have bridal consultants and a bridal dress & accessories section. Some of the dresses are less than $500 and ready to wear which is awesome! Also try recycledbride.com, oncewed.com, and preownedweddingdresses.com.

Good luck!

Too bad there isn’t a picture of your vision or a more detailed description? I’m sure many bees would chime in since we were all in the looking for dresses boat at one point of another. 

I was also, going to mention JCrew. Right now their flowy dresses are like $200 SOME and by now, Not sure if they’d have your size….All I know is they go quick. So jump on that if you are able.

What was the price bracket?

I’ve seen vintage/inspired with flow for $1,000.

I am planning on getting a Nataya 9005 dress in pink.  There is another Nataya dress that sounds almost exactly like what you were describing.If this dress doesn’t work for you just search on Nataya, she has several designs that are very pretty from XS to 3XL.


This is the one I was talking about. And here is mine:

The wrap dress is a wonderful idea as well.  This will allow you to use accessories to add bling.  Definitely check out Nordie’s in Woodlawn Hills because that location carries wedding dresses.  I believe JCrew @ the Farmers Market carries JCrew’s wedding line.  Also check out BCBG in Beverly Hills.  Ann Taylor also has a ready to wear wedding dress line but I don’t know which LA location has the wedding line.  Since you want more of a flowy chiffon dress you should check out destination dresses, which tend to be ready to wear.  I was originally going to wear a BCBG dress but my girlfriend laid down the law.  Good Luck

Have you looked at samples for sale at bridal boutiques? They can be majorly discounted, and I am sure you could find a flowy chiffon gown! That way you get it off the rack, and you still have time to fit in some alterations. I would give it a whirl! You never know, you may stumble onto something fabulous!
