Street Style Roundup: White dresses!

I'm finding little to no inspiration for my wedding style from actual brides. Most of the dresses I've seen are pretty repulsive to me, with exceptions for a couple Vera Wang dresses (that are a kajillion dollars), the BHLDN Zinnia dress (which I have a discount for), and some from Etsy (pretty cheap for the most part).
What I do find inspiring are ladies with real, day-to-day style that happen to be rocking white dresses, short and long. Here are a few I've seen most recently!

Love the styling on these BHLDN looks.

Etsy Dresses

This vintage dress from Allen Company Inc (based out of Allentown, Jonnie's hometown!) is super cute! I think the whole strapless-bride looks is really overdone, but this dress is just doing it for me.

I like the idea of a vintage dress, or sourcing Etsy's artisans for a handmade dress. Surprisingly, a handmade custom dress on Etsy is cheaper than a "designer" dress that's Made In China for David's Bridal or whatever. The only issue is the "trying on" thing. But if I find someone in San Francisco or Philadelphia, that might not be a problem at all.

These dresses are by Leanne from Project Runway! And they are made from sustainable fabrics.

These dresses are by Angela Vaden on Etsy.

melabo cake toppers

My mom is probably going to kill me, but I really want one of these goofy cake toppers by Melabo on Etsy. Which heads to choose? I think Jonnie would make a good robot. Should I be a squirrel, unicorn, or a cat?
