Hey friends! So with my wedding just a little over four months away I figure it is probably time to buckle down and find my wedding dress. The only problem? I’m literally the most indecisive person on planet Earth. Especially when it comes to buying clothes. And EVEN MORE especially when it comes to buying clothes that are more than 20 bucks.
Since getting engaged, I’ve kept an eye on a few of my favorite websites and took note of the recurring elements that sent my mouse darting for the bookmark button. I know I want a short, vintage-inspired dress with some lace elements. I’m not too picky about the shade of white. I like a more structured silhouette with classic, flattering lines. And I don’t want anything strapless because I know my life and I would just spend the whole time hoisting it up. And faffing with your clothes is just never a good look.
Based on those specifications, I patrolled the interwebs, and have settled on my EIGHT FAVORITES. (I know, I know. 8 is still a lot but I TOLD you I was indecisive!) While each of these dresses tick all my boxes, they’re all still quite different. And I like them for completely different reasons! So, I’d LOVE your opinion. Want a closer look?
1. ModCloth Perfected Prestige Dress
The overlay on this one is very unique. I like the shape of the dress and think it would be quite comfortable in the Kentucky July heat.
2. ModCloth Beyond the Bells Dress
I love the detailing in this one! The skirt maintains a structured shape with that subtle side gathering while the top is lovely left loose and boho-inspired.
3. Ralph Lauren Embroidered Lace Sheath Dress
This one is definitely the most simple of the 8 but there’s something really elegant about it. I love the straight across neckline and the dainty, barely-capped sleeves.
4. Eliza J Bell Sleeve Fit & Flare Dress
Hello 70’s vibes! This one may be a tad wild but the white makes the lace pattern appear more playful than bold and who doesn’t love an excuse for a bell sleeve?
5. Adrianna Papell Lace Fit & Flare Dress
How beautiful would this be paired with some simple ballet flats and a huge bunch of colorful wildflowers? I’ve always had a thing for all things prairie-inspired and I think this dress fits that bill quite nicely.
6. BHLDN Hadley Dress
The intricate lace pattern makes this one look just a smidge more sophisticated than the rest. I would wear classic and simple accessories and let the dress itself do all the outfit talking.
7. J. Crew Natalia Dress in Leavers Lace
This one would fit in splendidly amongst the art and giant windows at our gallery wedding venue. I love that the dress is short in length while the shape and sleeves play little eye-tricks to elongate.
8. J. Crew Elsa Dress in Leavers Lace
The shape of this dress may well be my favorite. The structure would help me rock the look with confidence while the look of the lace and the sweet sleeves would add softness and romance.
