I am getting married in July of this year. We are eloping and will be getting married while flying in a helicopter over Niagra Falls. So I need to find a dress. I'm 50. I would like a light colored dress and a short one not too short but not a gown.

So please recommend some online and brick and mortar stores for me to try. Oh and I will also need shoes. Where is everyone buying shoes? I basically live in sneakers.


Thanks

eShakti might have what you're looking for. Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials! I like the idea of eloping at Niagara Falls.

At eShakti you can customize the details of your dress and the prices seem pretty good to me.

How exciting!
Choose something that has a bit fuller skirt & shoes with under a 2inch heel, so you can get easily into & out of the helicopter. I would look for "garden party" dresses.

I have looked at jjshouse and simply dresses and I have seen some nice dresses for under $150. So I think I should be able to easily do that

Thank you. I checked you links and ideas. Looks like I am a bit plain and I like solids

Are you looking for something that looks bridal, or are you just going for a decent dress that you could wear again?

I'd look at J.Crew, Ann Taylor, or maybe even Land's End might have something.

Out of all those I loved the sheath most, but think it would be difficult to get in & out of helicopter with it.

For helicopter I liked this best, https://www.jjshouse.com/A-Line-Prin...8056884-g56884
Pick color that goes with your skin tone & brings out your eyes. I liked the blush pink.

Also you might want another dress to wear on the trip & could pick somethimg more casual but still more dressed up than usual.
