      I ordered mine from Davids Bridal.  I plan to change into it after the dinner at the resort and then again for later in the night of the AHR.

        So far, the best ones I've found have been at BCBG.  I've had my eye on this one for a while:

        Good point!  I'm getting marring in Jamaica in May and hadn't even considered the dress needs to hide sweat.  Thank you for mentioning that.

           I LOVE the Maggie Sottero dresses.  I never considered a tea length but the more I look at this thread, the more I consider it.  I do have great legs...

           

          Why are you ladies doing the non-traditional/shorter dresses?  What made you decide?

            I tried on the Maggie Sottero Isadora Marie, which is just the longer version of the Isadora Ann (they didn't have the Ann in store).  I really liked it, but my mom won't even hear of it!  She says the short one looks like a prom dress.  (I bet if I had wanted to wear it to a prom, she would've said it looks like a wedding dress!)  I personally love the idea of a shorter dress - just think - you don't have to worry about getting sand all over it, you can go to the washroom solo, and it would be soooo much more comfortable. Unfortunately everyone I took dress shopping thinks that the fact that it's a destination shouldn't affect the dress you wear, and it should be big and poofy and bride-like. Sorry for the rant, but the point is I really do love the Isadora Ann, it's gorgeous and IMO perfect for a DW.

                  I love this dress.  I have been thinking its the one for about 5 months now and think I should just order it. :-)

                   

                  As far as good buys go, this dress is $800+ on the Maggie Sottero website but I saw it for less than $150 on www.milanoo.com.

                    Went dress shopping in person for the first time this weekend and I'm not sure what to do.  Here is the one I tried on and really like - the model looks kinda trashy so its hard to get a good concept, but it looks great on (and not as short as it is in the pic).  The back is traditional with a corset lace up so it does seem "bride-like" and oh so flattering.
