A reader question...

One of my dear readers sent me a really interesting question, and just in case any of you are curious about the same thing, I thought I'd share!

She asked me about my dress, because she's looking for a fun, short, retro-style dress for her wedding, which is in only 6 weeks!

Here was my response...

I'd be more than happy to share :) The style of my dress is "Taylor," from Priscilla of Boston's Vineyard Collection. Here is the link. There are tons of cute, short dresses on that same website, I did a whole post on short dresses here.

I would suggest calling bridal stores in your area and seeing if they have any short sample dresses that they would be willing to sell. Samples are usually size 6, 8, or 10, and if they are willing to sell you a sample, you will probably get it for 20-75% off the retail price, depending on the condition of the dress and how soon they can replace their sample.

Here are some other good places to look:

Dolly Couture's Ebay Shop

This one at revampbykelly's Etsy shop is only $69.00!

Or you can search the following sites for short dresses:





I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions... Good luck!!! :)

Do y'all have any other good suggestions?? I'd love to pass them on to her!

I too am getting married in a short dress (the Fiesole from Melissa Sweet's Reverie collection--I can't wait!)and love having an excuse to look for more. Here's a few that you might be able to get on short notice.

White as Snow dress by sarahseven:
Check out her Etsy shop for more cute short-dress options. These are nice b/c she can tailor to your measurements, so hopefully no need for alterations.

Also, don't forget department stores like Nordstrom, where you can find some of these gems:
