Really? This is a bridesmaid dress? I totally cannot tell, and no one else will either!
I am also looking casual, and short too, and keep worrying that it will not look bridal enough. I keep falling into the "oooh, look at that one!" trap, when I said I wanted casual, casual,casual! Finally, FI said to me... "The people there are going to know you are the bride. You are the one carrying flowers, walking down the aisle, and saying I DO. Who cares if they do not think it is fancy enough?"
Duh. I hate it when he is right.
BUT that being said, I think yours is PLENTY "fancy" and if you want to add a belt or something, I am sure that is doable too. Gorgeous choice, I say go for it!

When I was in the bridal shop and explaining what I wanted the sales girl were SO helpful and said "you know, that exact dress you are describing sounds a lot like one of the bridesmaid dresses we have..." I didn't want to be rude so I thought, why not? and tried it on... well. it was PERFECT! And available in white and the best part? $260!!!!!! So... Just wanted to give you ladies a heads up if you're looking for something a bit more simple and are on a budget, most bridesmaid dresses come in white and the cost savings speak for themselves! What do you guys think?? Does it look "bridesmaidy"? I haven't bought it yet, but I think its the one.. I might add a belt for the reception to glitz it up a bit but its sooo what I wanted and Im so happy! Hopefully you can see the link..
