    Sorry if this has already been posted, but I wanted to share the idea with anyone looking for a beachy wedding dress!!


    I was looking at wedding dresses today with my cousin and couldn't find what I was looking for because I wanted beachy and I wanted inexpensive. Not to mention, my wedding is in 7.5 months so I'm really pushing it for the dress to be ordered and come in on time. 


    My cousin had the brilliant idea to look at bridesmaid dresses instead of wedding gowns. The salesgirl told us that 99% of the bridesmaid dresses come in white/ivory. So I tried a bunch on and found one that I love! And it's only $230! Yay!!! And bridesmaid dresses only take about 3-5 months to come in. So I'm totally fine for time.


    Bridesmaid dresses are just more flowy and way more in chiffon to give you a simpler, beachier look. More variety for that look, I found, than in the wedding gown section.

      That's exactly what I did.  Couldnt find a dress that I wasn't sweating in (in an a/ced store), so I asked for options, and that is EXACTLY what my sales lady said. Especially that I will be trashing it. It was a bit over 200 and I'm very pleased with it :)....

        A friend of mine did this and it worked out perfectly for her.  She was also in a time crunch and ended up being exactly what she wanted:)

        46 booked and counting!

              This is a fantastic idea! I am planning on getting a second dress for my TTD, and now I know exactly where to look

                I've never heard of this, but what a GREAT idea.  I'm planning our wedding w/ only 6 months prior to the date and want to lose a few pounds before I pick a dress.  A bridesmaid dress will be a great idea!
