    @MsChandler:  If you love it and feel beautiful in it, then it is perfectly bridal enough! Your wedding dress is a dress to make you feel beautiful and special, and if this makes you feel that way, then don’t worry about how it appears to others. It’s gorgeous!

    Honestly I think it looks perfect for a romantic vintage garden wedding. I love the color. Do you have a picture of the sash?

    It can be hard to find flattering dresses when you’re so short (I’m 4’10” too). I felt like I looked like a cupcake in a lot of the foofy dresses I tried on lol

    I think that with pearls and a sash, it shoukd have just the right amount of fancy. Great choice, I love it.

    I think it’s lovely! Definately bridal, I think it’ll look great with the pearls & all. What material is the skirt, btw? It’s hard to tell from the pic but I’m curious 🙂

    @MsChandler:  I think accessories and great makeup can dress anything up!

    I do have my dress! It still needs to be altered so I dont have any pics of me in it. Here it is..

    @MsChandler: I love that dress! Im also petite – 5’1″ 😉 But I dont care if I look like a white puff, I lurve ballgowns! Anyway: If you doubt it though theres obviously something not quite right. Perhaps a little bit of bling on the belt, rather than a plain one. You dont have to go diamontes either, dress it up with matching pearls!

    It totally does have a vintage 1930s/40s look to it. (Just referred to a book I’m borrowing from the library for vintage wedding flower ideas)

    Love the princess line; definitely not what a bridesmaid would wear back in those days.

    A lot of people would say my dress is not bridal enough — but meh! Wear what’s comfortable because that’s what I call “bridal enough”. 🙂

    Wear a birdcage or short veil and you will look bridal

    @MsChandler:  

    Yes, I do! Here is the dress thread I created when I received my dress back in May. I was inspired by Stephanie James Couture’s dresses for 1950s era. Even though the dress (picture of me in dress w/o petticoat) didn’t need a petti, I decided to add one for flounce drama.

    When you try it on, ask the dress shop if you could try it with a slip underneath to see if it makes any difference in the shape.

    I also love your dress the way it is! I’m not sure about the sash; I’m a curvy girl too.
