I am a Bride's Maid in a wedding this June and I neeeeed the PERFECT LBD. Not only do I want to look fantastic for my best friend's wedding but my exboyfriend will also be in the wedding so I have to look good! I am short (5'2") and about 110 pounds and I am struggling to find something with the right amount of sass and style but still conservative enough for a wedding in a church. I am not on a super strict budget but I do not really want to spend over $250 (unless the dress is to die for!). Please help me out! Thank you sooo much!"
Sarah, this is a tough line to walk: Demure & sweet enough for a church wedding, but yet sexy & fabulous enough to make your ex boyfriend say, "Dayyyyyyum!" and realize he's missing out on the most amazing girl ever? Hard to do, but we found seven dresses that could work (keep in mind that dresses that are mini-length on a 5'10" model will be much longer on you). Of course, if it's a very conservative church wedding, you may want to invest in a shawl or shrug to cover your shoulders during the ceremony. Oh! And! Don't forget to ask the bride if your choice is okay with her before you click "purchase now"! Good luck, and have a great time knockin' 'em dead at the reception!
