Little White Dress (See Jane Pick)

I'm in need of a white dress for my wedding rehearsal dinner.  I had my heart set on the Elizabeth and James Mackenzie dress in Ivory, but alas, it's sold out everywhere.  Time passed and I forgot about my search.  Once Alicia (who's getting married the weekend after me) asked if I found one yet, I realized that I didn't have that much time left to look!  Since the wedding is in Mexico, I'm looking for something effortless, but also pretty.  Also, I want to wear it again for our "home reception" which will take place in July back in Ohio for all the guests who can't make the trek south of the border.  One more prerequisite: I'd like it to look as good with these shoes as it does with a pair of fancy heels.  There are so many great dresses out there...I can't choose!



What's your vote? (or feel free to send the link of others you like!)

  3. a tie between 2 and 4 for me. I definitely think number 2 brings ALOT more wear-ability to the table so it could be looked at as an investment piece to be duplicated in various and beautiful other outfits in the next year... i don't know though. It's your reception look and feel like the beautiful princess you are!

  4. I'm DYING all over number 2. It's absolutely stunning and would look amazing with heels or those nude sandals. Number 3 is pretty too.

  8. 2, 3, or 4! Ahh I can't pick. I love how fun 4 is though, and I think it would look great on you!

    Have you posted at all about your wedding planning? I would love to see more details about Mexico! :)

  9. Also, I say 4 again because it can be a skirt as well! So versatile!

  12. I love numbers one and two. Everytime you talk about your wedding I get so excited for you! It's such a wonderful time. I remember when my cousin got married (about three or so years ago) it was such much fun and she was so excited it was awesome. I can't believe you're having it in mexico too, that's even more incredible.

  14. Number one for sure!!!! The model in the picture even looks like you! It's a perfect match! I think those sandals will complete the entire look! A little mexican glow, and a colorful margarita in your hand...PERFECTION!

  18. I really love 2 & 4. They are both beachy yet have something unexpected and fun about them- and you could dress up/down both of them. So exciting! I can only imagine those with beautiful jewelry and beachy hair! So pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  19. OOooooh so exciting! 1 & 2 are my favorites! Both are so chic, yet sexy in a subtle way. #4 is probably my least favorite - not that you asked! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  20. #2 or #3 If your wedding dress is going to be long (which I assume it is.) That way your rehearsal dinner dress is much different from your wedding dress. Plus they are both so cute! And they'll show off your gorgeous gams!

  21. I vote number 1 - it's STUNNING!!! But they all are gorgey!

  29. It's a tough call...they all look great. And you'd look so lovely in them. How will you style your hair? (That sometimes helps me decide on the dress.)

  30. i looooove #'s 1 and 4. they are so ethereal. no matter what you wear you will look so stunning, i am sure! congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  31. My vote? The one with the asymmetrical hem for sure! It is just so easy yet a bit special…perfect for a rehearsal and beyond! I adore your strappy sandals that you plan to wear with this dress :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I vote for #1. Effortless for Mexico and perfectly bridal for a 'home reception'. Enjoy and Congrats!

    I like this one it looks a bit old fashioned.

    ReplyDelete
  35. #1 & #2 are my faves! But I think #2 would be perfect to fit all of your events. I think it would go nicely with both the sandals or a fun pair of heels! SO exciting...the countdown is on! xo

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love them all! 2 is my favorite. I got this one for my rehearsal :)

    I want to marry this dress…..i.e.: I'm in LOVE with it!

    ReplyDelete
  37. 2 and 3 are my favs!... the back on number 3 is perfect for Mexico!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love #1 - especially for mexico! I think it's just important that you're in something comfortable so you can enjoy your friends and family and not worry that you're in a really tight or uncomfortable dress.

  39. I love the first and the second :)

  41. You'd honestly look gorgeous in all of them, but I think 4 is so perfect for the location and occasion! It's sweet, sexy, and breezy all in one!

  42. love dress #1. you have a great blog. i enjoyed reading your posts. i'm your newest follower. xx

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ahh these are all perfect choices... I think you'd look amazing in all of them but I'm leaning towards #3! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  44. hi jane! i really like #3 out of the bunch. but i actually think you'd look better in this one because it's less tiered/cake-like but still fun and flirty!:
