OK.. I need help from all you very very stylish Pricescope Brides-to-be (and married Pricescopers).

I need a rehearsal dinner dress... I cant seem to find one that appeals to me right now... Heres some info:

1. The rehearsal itself is on the beach.. at 4pm
2. The dinner is in one of Seaside's lovely cottages (I'll attach a picture!).. but we'll be mingling inside and outside.. as there are large adirondack chairs on the huge deck.. fire pits and lots of outdoor seating..
3. The dinner is Barbecue!!! yes.. I cant wait.. soooooo excited about having some good ol' southern bbq.
4. I really want something that is casual, but elegant.
5. Can be either long or short, but flowy is a must! Or if its short.. strapless and structured are two things I LOVE.
6. I really dont want to wear white (I want to save that for the wedding!)

I hope you ladies can help me out... I am at a total loss!

Thank you all in advance for your help!!!

Here is are two pictures of the house: This first one is the North side of the compound

ETA: I cant upload my second picture.. sorry.. I get some kind of error that I've never seen.. but you gals get the idea!

Colors?

Anything but White or Black... I think bright would be nice... as it will be spring time.. and I ADORE pink... ("pink is my signature color!!")

Budget..?

I''d say no more than $250 - $300 (max) Of course if you ladies can find something for way cheaper.. I am way open for that as well!!! anything to save money!

In navy

In alpine

And I looove this- structured & strapless but maybe too formal:

Have you checked out www.bluefly.com? They have an ENORMOUS selection of heavily discounted pretty designer dresses. They have flat rate shipping too so you can order a tonne, try them on, and return whatever you don''t like. Plus, they send everything wrapped up in pretty tissue and all elegant and stuff, for those of us that like the full shopping experience, even when we''re shopping on line.


... only do I recall you''re in Panama or something very cool like that? I bet they ship there, but I wonder if it''s more expensive.

I had a look and it''s an extra 15% off everything today. Plus, you can search by colour, so here are all the PINK dresses! Yay pink! I love pink too.

I just love that chiffon one by ''Joie'' halfway down the first page.

Oh you ladies are just the absolute best!!

Molly: I love the last two dresses you posted.. LOVE the green one.. especially the back.. and the saffron yellow one.. I dont think that is too formal at all.. In fact.. cant you picture a really cute pair of heels with that.. something fun? I wish you could try that on in the store.

JCrow: I ADORE that dress! just looove it... I have never seen that designers clothes before... do you know how they fit? I tried on sooo many mermaid gowns for my wedding dress and they didnt work at all.. so I think I would be concerned that that dress would fit like a mermaid gown in the hip area.. I dunno though.. it is absolutely divine.. and just the look I was going for!!

Jas & Ebree: You both are such a wealth of information.. thank you so much! I do love the Anthropologie dress.. in fact I love a lot of their dresses... I just am not too sure with their sizing.. and I would have to order online...

Pandora: hmmm.. not really sure a Sari is for me.. but thank you soo much!

Independent Gal: I spent a good hour on blue fly today.. thanks for the tip... they have some pretty stuff and are great with their shipping methods.. I am in Turks and Caicos... and really having anything shipped here is a nightmare in the making (theft, customs.. etc..).

I found a Jcrew dress that kind of shows the look I am going for... unfortunately the dress is white.. I think they are marketing it as a wedding dress.. (casual of course) This might give you ladies another idea of the look I am going for:

Also.. this is the one that I am totally in love with... but.. its ivory.. and its 1200 bucks.. (NO THANK YOU) but again.. its kind of the look I am going for... flowy.. beautiful, elegant.. beachy... etc.

Thanks again ladies for your help... you are saving my sanity!!!

Call them and ask if they''ll do it. Website says they sometime accept rush orders with 4-6 week delivery and 30% surcharge, which would definitely be tight. But knotties seem to say they run true to size so maybe you wouldn''t need alterations.
