Petite brides Show your dresses!

I go dress shopping early September and I’m excited but so nervous because I’m so short 5 feet even. I keep hearing how a ball gown would overwhelm my frame and that I don’t have the legs to pull off a mermaid. That I would have to go with either a sheath gown or A line but I hate feeling so limited. I would love to see all of my short brides in their dresses!!!

    I initially listen to the “based on your body type and height you should get a...” but ultimately I think it’s crap. Try on anything and everything you like. It’s your day, don’t let anyone tell you you can’t wear a certain style. I’m 5’2” and curvy and I loved the fit and flare gowns I tried. I also liked the HUGE ball gown my four year old picked despite feeling like it was swallowing me whole - it was about as wide as I am tall, but so sparkly and I felt beautiful (until I saw the $2700 price tag)! Good luck!

    Try on all sorts of styles! I am 5'1" and ended up getting a white bridesmaid dress that was spaghetti strap and A-line. (I have narrow hips and felt like it looked good on me). And all the bridal dresses I tried on were super heavy or the detailing was very....off-scale? Seemed too large or something. Some fabrics are incredibly hot as well so consider time of year you plan to get married.

    If I had a curvier shape, I would have gone for a fit and flare; I LOVE those on an hourglass body!

    I'll post a photo of my dress once I get pics backSmiley smile

    Thank you for saying this! I hate feeling limited and I will go in and try on one of each style. I really would like a Mermaid style because I’m also curvy and would like to accent that. So I’ll try to keep n open mind. I wish they would have petite models wearing wedding dresses as well in catalogs.

    Yeah dresses do seem heavy! I definitely want tulle because it seems lighter. I’ll try on one of each style. Thanks for the encouragement!!
