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!)

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!

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.

My pick is number 3.

The Closet Confessions said...

My favorite is 2 - flowy and effortless while still having a nice shape!

love #4 but possibly belted? I think it'd be perfect for mexico!

Taylor Marie said...

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! :)

Taylor Marie said...

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

Cassie Lee said...

So completely in love with the first one!!!

Lynzy said...

My vote is definitely for #1! Oh, and I will be mailing out your shirt THIS friday! Work has been insane and getting to the post office has seemed nearly impossible :)

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.

I'm having a $100 dollar Shopbop giftcard GIVEAWAY on my blog! Come check it out :) It's open to international bloggers as well.

Tracy said...

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!

how exciting that your wedding is right around the corner! my cousin and his wife got married in Mexico in May in 2008. It was such a fun treat----vacay + a wedding. can't beat it!

audrey marie said...

aaez said...

i love 2 and 4!!

Bud and Leo said...

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!

Helena from BrooklynBlonde said...

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! ;)

Marie a la Mode said...

#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!

Amber's Notebook said...

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

Liz said...

I have been obsessing over these two dresses myself and they would look so cute on you:

Ashley said...

Swooning over #4... So romantic and would look great against the beachy backdrop. :)

April said...

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.)

Taylor said...

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

Cat said...

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 :)

Samantha said...

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

Closet Fashionista said...

I like this one it looks a bit old fashioned.

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

#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

Hello Cupcake said...

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!

Crystalin said...

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

Becca [Free Honey] said...

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.

Orange and Cloves said...

I love the first and the second :)

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!

Alicia said...

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

Alicia said...

And #1 ;)

cwu1126 said...

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!:
