Hi all! We are getting the bridesmaids dresses from David’s Bridal, but I have a question … One of the girls is short (around5’2″) and the dresses we will be ordering will be ball gowns (unfortunately for us short gals they do not make bridesmaids dresses in petite sizes). Now I know that for wedding gowns from most designers that you can order it shortened for an extra fee, but does David’s Bridal do that too? It would be at least five inches off (I ask because when I had a ballgown style dress which gathered at the skirt and had it altered at David’s Bridal they just chopped off the bottom in alterations so the dress looked completely different than the other (much taller) girls). Just wondered if anyone has done that or if it is possible since it would be more porportional if the manufacturer did it, rather than lopping off the bottom. Thanks ladies!
