Challenge: Wedding party dress for Swedie

  1. Okay, so I already have my bridal gown for the wedding in Sweden. It's being made after my measurements right now, should be ready in March (I'll pick it up in the US in April). So, that's what I'm wearing on my wedding day.

    In July we're having a post Wedding party at FH's parents house in Chicago for everyone who can't make it to Sweden (his close family is flying over, but obviously a lot of people can't make it). It's going to be pretty casual there, so I'm not wearing my wedding gown again. So I need a cute, white, summery but really classy dress for the party. I like classic design, and I want to be striking :biggrin: I'm thinking knee lenght or just above the knees. I've been looking at soooo many dresses but I can't find what I need :sad: Since I know all you ladies are amazing fashionistas I figured you could help me :idea: My limit moneywise is about $400 I'd say, I'd love it if it was less than that.

    After that party we're going on our honeymoon, I'm so excited about this whole upcoming summer!! :biggrin: :biggrin:

    THANK YOU lovely ladies!
     
  2. Not knee-length but very lovely, not too formal.... All from J.Crew:

  4. Ooooh, IntlSet, Thank you!! :biggrin: I like them! I was thinking of something a little shorter and more casual, but these are all great choices! I just checked out the Jcrew website and they have so many cute dresses, I will definitely go there in April when I'm in the Us again! Thanks!

    More suggestions peeps? :biggrin:
     
  5. Oooh, that's super cute! :love:
     
  6. a lot of those jcrew dresses could be altered to knee-length quite easily and i love the shape of the upper part of all of them! and most jcrew dresses aren't particularly expensive.
     
  7. that is sooo funny! The first thing I thought of when I read Swedie's question was Jcrew! I think they have lovely sophisticated things for a great price!

  9. Ladies, you are all amazing :love: Thanks so much for helping me in this time of despair :p I like the Anne Klein Suli! ;)

    Ayla, that's really pretty, but $1400 is out of my budget :p Heck, I could buy a dress AND a Vuitton for that :biggrin:
     
  10. Oops.. didn't see the budget ! :shame:
     
  11. yeah, the REAL wedding gown is already about that much, so I need to be a little careful :sick:
    Thanks though :love:
     
  12. Cute dresses! I'm not adding anything as you have so much good choices already to choose from!
     
  13. ILoveCoach, thank you!! :biggrin: I really like a couple of them, two more stores I'll be going to in April! Thanks again!
