    I was just about to ask if you’d seen Stephanie James’ dresses when I read short and lace, but you beat me to it!

    Candy Anthony does gorgeous short lace dresses too. She’s British (and expensive) but good for inspiration!

    I’ve also seen some lovely short lace dresses on etsy.

  • Meg

    I think I’m getting mine made, Berry, but… I always go by her store down south, so I might just try some on!

    Maybe try Recapture Designs on College in Oakland. They restyle vintage wedding dresses (and party dresses) to make them fit and modernize them. Even if you don’t find your wedding, its so worth the trip.
