I dont know what youre stressing about, that dress is great on you! I did try on that lazaro gown, and with our height ( im also 5’3″) The torso should not be as long. It seems like they are already shortening it for you though. Also you can alway wear tall heels to look taller! I dont know if you like heels, but im such a shoe girl. Im going to wear at least 4 inches for my wedding.

Oh, that’s not a bad trumpet at all!  The bodice stops much higher than I figured it would.  I’m only 5’0 and every trumpet I tried on did look awful for my size.  I think since you’re shortening the bodice it’ll be beautiful!

I think it looks great on you!  I know you’re standing on a platform, but your torso looks great, and if you’re getting the dress shortened… even better!

I agree with july112010, wear some tall shoes!  I’m also 5’3″ and I’m wearing 4″ heels (the ones in my avatar).

Umm.. since when is a trumpet style dress the ‘worst shape’ for a short bride? How about a ballgown? I’m a little confused about that as the only dresses that looked half decent on me were trumpet or mermaid style. My dress hasn’t been made yet, but here is a pic from my Muslin fitting on Sat. Believe it or not the muslin is currently 3 inches too short and it looks fine in this pic, so with that extra length it will look even better. You better believe I was upset when she zipped me up and I could see my shoes after I specifically told them I was wearing 4 inch heels and wanted the dress dragging on the ground. BTW I am 5’1″ and 103 lbs.

I think the dress looks great on you (and will be even better altered) and you are worried about nothing!  For that girl on the show, I think it was being very short combined with being a bit “thicker” that made it maybe not the best choice…. totally not the case for you!

Hey hun!

I think I win the contest for the most vertically challenged bride in a trumpet dress? haha.

I’m 4’11, and 100 lbs. Here are a few pics from my wedding day.

Meliss, you have nothing to worry about, you are going to look gorgeous! And you’re getting it shortened anyway so you will be fine!

i’m only 5’0 and about 100 lbs and i’m wearing a trumpet dress also.  I actually felt that they were the most elongating on my particular shape.  a-lines and ballgowns swallowed me.  my dress is also being custom cut so that the proportions are right for me.  

i think that the dress you bought looks AMAZING on you and if it makes you feel better, your first dress post gave me such bad dress envy that i almost decided to go try it on.  Once it’s fit to you, you are going to look perfect.  I guarantee it.
