It is not close to white. :rolleyes: It's nude, or at least Caucasian skin nude. I would get it in a heartbeat, in fact, I liked it so much I checked out if they had my size in petite for the beach wedding (although it's probably a bit too formal). They don't have my size. :(

Get it if they have it in yours.

I didn't think it was close to white... Hmph... are they really that worried that I would steal the bride's "thunder", as they put it, for wearing this color? Unfortunately the smallest in petite is a 6P... the measurements are a tad bit large. I might order it and hope that the dress comes small.

I really like this dress (http://www.express.com/metallic-ruched-stretch-lace-dress-41216-683/control/page/20/show/3/index.pro) too. Is it also too close to white?

Look what I found on ebay! (http://fashionbynight.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/ID1009-W930-744.jpg) It's so simple but elegant. It can be dressed up or down. Can I wear red to a wedding?

Sure you can wear red, but I think you'd look really smashing in one of the blues! :glamor:

I haven't bought my wedding dress there, yet, but I think I will. I bought two other dresses, though, and they were both well made and fit perfectly.

I bought these two:

and

And they also have gorgeous and cheap wedding dresses.

You absolutely can wear red to a wedding! I really like the nude dress, and you probably would be fine wearing that color. I, personally, would not feel comfortable wearing white, ivory, nude, any off-white shade (especially lace and strapless). But, I am older than you and more stuck in some old fashioned ideas. I have no issue with red or black for a wedding, I just would shy away from any white/off-white. Go to this site:http://badgleymischka.com/bmcruise/ the bottom left dress (look #16) is what I got for my 30th Anniversary party. The dress is beautiful! It's lined with a stretch nude silk, then a layer of a very thin, fine, off-white stretch lace, then a layer of gossamer gold lace. and it's beaded with faux pearls and gold beads. But, I would not feel comfortable wearing it to a wedding. I'll have to go somewhere else fancy to wear it again!

Can't read any of it! :) But they have very nice things.

^^ I was just kidding around, there is a "English" button at the top of the page.:)

Just keep in mind that the prices are in Euros (33% more in US dollars). Still, very reasonable, though.

Thanks! I felt beautiful in it. And, I got so many compliments. I loved the simple elegance about it.

I'm not sure if you mentioned this, when is the wedding? We are having way too much fun helping you shop! :)

Found another dress (http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/adrianna-papell-strapless-lace-sheath-dress/3134187?origin=category&resultback=0) in champagne that I really like. I have little boobies so there's no fear of anything popping out, lol. Would this be appropriate? My nice lightweight silk/cashmere sweater would work well with it to wear during the church ceremony.I really like this one -- and with your sweater would be more than appropriate for an afternoon church wedding -- especially a Catholic nuptial mass. It certainly isn't close enough to white -- at least not in my eyes.

Red wouldn't be a problem, as others have stated, but without some sort of jacket or wrap, I don't think it is suitable for the wedding -- the reception is another matter. Just throwing in my 2 cents from the point of view of a former Catholic who still occasionally attends mass at Christmas/Easter when visiting my mother.

I love that site - and the prices are very reasonable. The quality is good, too. Not outstanding but especially for a wedding dress I will wear only once I don't need outstanding quality.

And thanks for the interest. :)

At the moment I am considering three very different choices.

A long elegant one:
http://www.lightinthebox.com/A-line-V-neck-Floor-length-Chiffon-Elastic-Satin-Wedding-Dress--FSY02275-_p152973.html

and two short ones:

http://www.lightinthebox.com/de/Isabel_p34789.html

Maybe I can get some fashion tips too?
I am dark haired and have relatively light skin with freckles.
I am normal weighted but most of my weight is in my middle area. :mad: So I need something that is flattering around my tummy and behind.
My lower legs are fine, though, so I usually look good in short dresses, if I say so myself. ;)

So, oh wise FSUers - what is the perfect dress for me? :shuffle:

ETA - if you buy from lightinthebox you will have to pay import taxes when they ship it to you. It was about 20% for me.
And you can change the currency to USD if you want - right at the button where the price is written.

The wedding is June 16 across the bay in San Francisco peninsula. I have some time... and I'm LOVING all these dresses. Thank you EVERYONE! hehehe

Hedwig, you brought up a good point about bodytype, another thing I never even considered! Yeesh, can you all tell I'm not much of a clothes shopper? I've been working on getting fit since my Dr. scared the crap out of me last year on my annual health check up, warning me about diabetes, heart disease, etc so I've gone through some changes. Here's my bodybuilding.com photo gallery (http://bodyspace.bodybuilding.com/photos/view-user-photos/28110342) which will pretty much give you an eyefull (maybe too much, WARNING, stretchmarks shots! lol) of my shape. I'm also short, exactly 5 feet tall.
