Casual beach wedding dresses - where did you find yours

I am getting married in Florida but I do not live there. I am looking for new ideas on where to find a wedding dress, either online or if someone could recommend a specific designer or national store, that would help too.  I've been to 6 stores in two states and have also ordered (and returned) dresses from 3 online stores.  Why is it so hard to find something simple, informal and beachy?  Here is what I am looking for:
  • ivory
  • empire waist
  • no/little train
  • chiffon or similar fabric
  • no beading, sparkle or lace
  • full-length
  • under $500 if possible


I have tried the following national stores with no luck (plus a few local boutiques):


David's Bridal
Ann Taylor
J. Crew
Nicole Miller


Does anyone else have any other ideas?  I will not buy a dress without trying it on first, so anything purchased online has to be returnable.

Thanks for your help!
