(Wedding) dresses for n00bs; where online to look and what search terms?

I am looking for a non-traditional wedding dress but am not finding a ton that I love in my city. When I looked at Nordstrom, which was the best of the available brick-and-mortar options, I found this
, which I loved and looks good on me, but the navy is way too dark a color. If I want to find something with a similar fit and/or look online, what "dress words" do I search for, and where should I be looking?
I'd gratefully accept any other suggestions for fits or dresses that might work, but it would help if you explained the vocabulary to me like I'm 7 so I can use it when I'm looking. I have a figure that's hourglass-y verging on pear and am about 5'2". I'm worried about looking WAY too busty or hippy, and I think one of the reasons the linked dress looks decent is that it fits closely up top, nips in at the waist and then skims any unpleasantness below. I'm probably looking for something in a green or blue.
