Ultimate wedding & party destination since 2009

Dear ESB: Please help me find a party dress!

July 26, 2011

Love it when East Side Bride goes shopping for us, don’t you? Here’s her suggestion for a perfect party dress:

Dear ESB,

My wedding is fast approaching (a month!) and I already have the dress (yeah!). Here’s a picture of what it looks like (it’s not the same dress, but looks super alike, although without the band in the middle, just more lace).

Now the wedding will be in hot hot middle of August in Maryland and we’ll have barbecue! And I want to party and dance dance dance. So, I need another cream dress (shorter length) but I’m not finding any!

Every one I see in white/cream is too weddingy. I want something that shows my shoulders (not necessarily strapless), is a little tight and not too long (I’m petite, 5’4”).

Any advice???


Budget: Under $500


This beaded silk-chiffon Alice + Olivia is a teence over your budget, but sooooo sexy!

And not too wedding-y at all.

You should be grateful I’m even recommending a SECOND DRESS, which I am generally against just on principle. But I shudder to think about the humidity in August in Maryland.
