    I don't want to use my dress for a TTD session since I'm having an AHR, so I'm looking for another one. I went to a resale shop today that is known for its wedding gowns. I didn't find any wedding dresses I liked (I want something pretty simple), but I did find a prom dress. Here's a link to the dress: Dave and Johnny.com. It's the first dress, but I'd get it in white. It's hard to tell in the pic, but it has tiny beaded straps, and the piece she's holding from the back, is a sash that comes from the front (across the chest there's a different fabric that wraps around to the back). The one they had there was too small in my chest. I'm trying to lose a few pounds before the wedding (next month), but still think it will be too tight.

    Here's my dilemma- the one at the store was $59 (I originally wanted to spend around 50-75 if possible). I found the dress online for $140, then at another site for $110. So, if I'm going to spend this much, is it worth checking out David's Bridal $99 dresses? That's where I got my "real" dress, but didn't check out that rack when I was there. I LOVE the prom dress, but am also a little worried because it seemed pretty see-through- guess I'd just need a full-length slip so when I get in the water it isn't TOTALLY revealing!!!!

    Anyway, what's your opinion on this? Sorry this got so long- anything to avoid grading the projects I need to grade!!!! (One more week of school, then it's wedding planning- and Lia Sophia shows- 24-7!!!!!!! I can't wait!!!!)

    if you think it might be see through don't use it, and if you have to buy a slip won't that be expensive, undergarments are always expensive.
    Try David's Bridal, that's what Ann did.

    I agree with the David's Bridal. If you are going to spend that much anyways, it's worth a shot!

      I went to the site that you posted and I really liked 3 of them...style number 3580 (this one was my fav), 2892, and 3004 but in white I think the back cris cross will look so sexy in the water when you're rolling around in the sand
