Where to Find the Perfect Dress for a Wedding

May 23, 2018

Wedding season is upon us! You know what that means,  it’s time for DRESS SHOPPING! Finding occasion dresses is a love-hate thing for me because I love shopping but it’s tough to shop for my body size. I’m petite but curvier in the chest area meaning that not all dresses fit me right. It happens all the time, I’ll a dress I really really like  and after trying it on in the dressing room, it’s either too long or I have to size up because the chest area is too small but then the dress doesn’t fit my waist properly. It’s a struggle sometimes.

However, I want to make your search for a wedding guest dress easy by sharing some great websites with beautiful and wedding-appropriate dresses. I found some of these while doing some of my own wedding guest dress shopping. The wedding I’m going to is in a couple weeks. Yikes! I really need to find a dress.  Some of the other websites on the list, I’ve talked about before but thought I’d  recommend them to ya’ll anyways:)

Good luck dress shopping!

Draper James

Draper James is Reese Witherspoon’s clothing line that is inspired by her Southern heritage. I love how romantic and charming all the items from here are. Also, great news for all the plus size girls out there because she’s releasing a whole new summer collection of sizes 12-28. Get $20 off  your next purchase through this link!

Gal Meets Glam

Gal Meets Glam was started style and beauty blogger Julia Engel. Her style reflects through all the pieces in her clothing line: feminine, elegant and classy. Writing this post, I actually found out her dresses are available at Nordstrom. Here’s the link for her online shop too!


I haven’t personally bought anything off Boden before, but I love all their styles and intend on buying something from them soon! All the dresses here have beautiful vibrant colors that are perfect for summer.



If you follow me on Instagram (if you don’t, you should)  you’ve definitely seen my talk about Modcloth. I love how they offer regular and plus sizes! They have lots of vintage-inspired clothing and lots of fun prints to pick from.  The things I’ve ordered from Modcloth run true to size. Get 20% off your order of $75 or more by clicking here and signing up for their newsletter.


ASOS is a British online fashion website with the cutest fashions. I’ve noticed that the clothing I’ve bought here runs a little big so I would size down. I really like that they offer something for everyone: petite, maternity and tall clothing! They also have a men’s section on their website too!


I haven’t bought anything from this website yet, but I love all their designs and dresses.


This is another website I discovered on my search this week. They have a plethora of designer options. You really have to search on this website but I saw some really cute dresses for reasonable prices. Just be patient and search.


This is another website where you have to be patient when looking through all the options. I spent like a whole hour just searching in their dress section and I found so many I liked! Sadly, some of them were out of my price range so I ended up not buying any from here. I’m going to keep browsing though for future items.


Another one of the websites, I haven’t bought from but have heard great things from. I love all their styles and collections.

If you have any other sites you know of, please comment with them! I’m always looking for new sites to shop 🙂
