Maggie Sottero makes a light gold dress that is GORGEOUS. A friend of mine wore it and i swas kinda like "really, gold?" and I was wowed. Is this too much for you? It depends how "bridal" you want to go.

 I don’t knwo if i’d want to spend $800 on a dress if i was going with a simpler dress like this. What about any of the off the rack Banana Republic, J Crew gowns, etc? Maybe a "destination" dress would be better? Like a tea length? 

 Or this: http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?line=d&style=JD1214 I love this one. That back is sexy!

 Little fancier: http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?line=d&pageSize=96&style=SD5211

Hope that helps! If you can give us more direction we might be able to provide more ideas

If you can afford it, Martin McCrea makes some very unusual gowns and will usually dye them to any color you want, http://martinmccrea.com

You might want do do a search for vintage dresses or tea dresses. For a super simple look you can go with holyclothing.com which has a more boho feel.

Believe me, I understand, I looked at wedding dresses for MONTHS until I thought I would vomit if I saw one more!

If you don’t want to wear white, what about wearing something in a pale blue? It might go well with your fiance’s uniform.

I would say to go hit the consignment stores! Search for a sweet vintage dress that is a different length or color. You’ll be sure to not look like anyone else!
