you might be better off going to a flagship library and viewing old bridal periodicals back to the 90's and 00's then..

my library stocks back issues from magazines for reference....

you might also ask your mom if she remembers what specific subscriptions she ordered...

^ Honestly, not really crazy about it. Not a fan of the belted look, and if lace, I would like it more luxurious ...

I agree with Ta-ta, and it seems like the dress is a little big for you, it swallows you.
I am sure you could find something more flattering for your petite frame.

I like it, the belt not though.
But I also wouldn't mind that the dress would be a bit more flowy/softer.

I agree with ta-ta and Jina. To me, the dress definitely swallows you and I would also have picked something that looked a little bit more luxurious.

There are several good lace options if you are on a tight budget ..

What do you think of this dress?

^ I love the first option EvaH suggested, and I believe it's the most adequate for a beach wedding. The current dress does "swallow" you. Of course, it is your wedding day, and it is your dress to choose and wear - and love - but I guess you wouldn't be asking here if you were 100% sure

^haha yeah that´s true.
I had a couple of dresses here. But that one was the only one I could image me wearing.
I have this "perfect" dress on my mind, but can´t seem find it.
I don´t want it to look like a wedding dress. Thanks EvaH for the suggestions, but they aren´t my cup of tea. Too much "wedding" in those dresses.
I don´t have a tight budget, but I also don´t want to spent 2000€ on something I would wear only once.

I had this stunning dress last year, but sent it back. Back then I needed a dress for someone elses wedding, and it was too much of a wedding dress. But the dress isn´t available anymore.

Not sure about the color yet. Wanted to match it with his outfit.

I want a long dress with laces and not sleeveless (My breast is too small, dresses slip off). hmpf...

Thanks everyone for your reply!

Hm floor-long, flowy, laces.... It should look great on photos... and on me.
I´m pretty short, so floor-long dresses are usually too long for me.

IMO if you are quite short & thin and want a floor length gown then it should not be flowy but tight and enhance your curves. Or else you will have the same issue than with the asos one: you will be drown in it.

If you still want it long & flowy then your best chance is to go custom made so it will be perfect for your body

^ you think so? hm... have to think about that...
can´t it be tight and flowy at the same time?
like tight at the top/breast area and flowy at the skirt part?
I would go with a hi-lo dress, too...
hmmm hmm hmmm

Yes that's exactly what I mean: fitted at the bodice and flowy afterwards. But it all depend of your body shape. Maybe you need/want something fitted let's say at your cleavage/boobs areas and flowy afterwards or maybe something fitted up until your waist and then flowy or up to your hips etc.. Depend on what look best on you & what you like
Best of luck

Hi myown...

you say you want a floor length gown, but you also mention that you're short and floor length gowns are usually too long for you. are you fixed on the idea of a floor length dress?

In any case, i did a bit of browsing for you.... bcbg have some quite nice, affordable options that fit your description of white lace and floor length. what do you think?

http://www.bcbg.com/Avi-Pleated-Gown...=&navid=search

http://www.bcbg.com/Runway-Bijou-Dre...=&navid=search

i think the first one in particular is quite beautiful and seems more fitted on top so perhaps you wouldn't get lost in it quite the way you are in the dress you posted. i also think it's a bit less generic with the pleating.
