HELP! Looking for short wedding dresses!!

Hi ladies, I'm a weekly lurker here and noticed that you gals are pros in giving ideas, advice, and tracking things down!!


I'm having a destination wedding and am looking for a second dress to trash.  I was thinking along the lines of maybe a shorter dress, tea legnth perhaps and not over $300!! 


Any help would be so much appreciated, trust me, I've been looking for what seems like forever with no luck at all.  HELP!

Is there any particular style (i.e. straps, strapless). Any color ideas?

Hello! There are a few shorter dresses as part of the David's Bridal online collection...I did find one by Maggie Sottero and the online price was $388 maybe cheaper in your area and sometimes the bridal stores are willing to price match.  Here is the Maggie Sottero one...

I am going back and forth on if I want to wear a short or long dress.


Have you looked into bridesmaid dresses?  Some come in ivory and white.


I have been looking at eBay and thinking of buying a full length dress and making it short. 


What do you think of retro dresses? (I am not sure of their prices...they may be out of your range...) http://stephaniejamescouture.com/


Have you checked nordy's?  http://shop.nordstrom.com/c/6014155/0~2376776~2374327~2374331~6014155

Damn, yall are freakin good!!  Not even an hour and all these links already!  I'm so excited, there are so many pretty Jim H. dresses and SO reasonably priced, thanks Chic!  Also, I love the vintage couture dresses.  It's funny, one of the locations where her photos on her site were taken at the Neon Boneyard Museum in Vegas, they restore all the vintage Vegas signs and put them on display for all to see.  This is where we'll be doing the TTD session! 


Thanks for all the responses!!

I bought a Carmen Marc Valvo @ Loehmann's  (to wear to my after wedding brunch) for under $150 and I just picked up my Calvin Klein wedding dress ( I think it is actually a BM dress) for $80 there!
