I have loved this dress ever since I saw it a while back on Nordstrom. I think it would be a beautiful dress for a beach wedding. If you are short on time (but not style) pulling an off the rack look can be easy and affordable. At around $1040 without the flowers it's a pretty good price, if you want to save even more you can find similar shoes for much less. Did you purchase your dress of the rack? Would you consider it?
