Pre-Wedding Dresses

Ok, so I have my actual wedding dress, but I need so many dresses for wedding related events and activities! B and I are having 3 showers in addition to my sorority shower, bachelorette party, and bridal shower. That's not counting a dress for the rehearsal and to leave the reception in. It sure is a lot, but I'm not complaining!

I've also recently become obsessed with looking "bridal" at these events. I am famous for my love of black clothing. As I type this I'm at work in one of my many black cardigans coupled with a pair of my many black pumps, which is pretty much my staple outfit. Except I'm the bride and I want to wear something that's a little out of character for me. So I've been searching for white clothes, gasp!

Remember I pride myself on sales so my first purchase was a 75% off ivory sleeveless top with pearl and rhinestone accents around the collar from Maurices along with fabulous champagne peeptoe heels. (Sorry no online shopping for this store.) Bachelorette or bridal shower outfit #1-check!

While the search for the perfect "getaway" white dress might continue I found a strong (and cheap) contender this morning. Meet contestant #1 coming to you from Target.com. The dress is only $9.99 so even if it doesn't take home the crown it's still worth it and I can put a black cardigan over it :-)
For all you bargain finders out there Isaac Mizrahi's dresses are on super cheap sale online and it's worth checking it out even if you aren't trying to be bridal.
Where have you found great dresses? How are you trying to "be bridal"?
