I have been trying on dresses for over a year now and our wedding is this december, I originally brought Maggie Soterro Adeline but after seeing photos of me in it when it came in, I wasnt allowed to take any before, I hated how it looked in me so I ordered another last month, I’m now worrying that it might not be the right type of dress for my figure, I am 5ft 3 and my fiance is 6ft 2 so I’m really worried I’m going to look really short next to him. Every article I read says short petit brides should wear plain dresses with little detail, column dresses or empire line but I do not feel like a bride in these. I have attached a photo of my new dress do you think I picked wrong for my body, I have also attached a photo of me in the Adeline by Maggie Soterro so you can see my figure I’m so worried I’m going to look awful. Thank you for your advice in Advance x sorry photos are so big I’m new to this

I absolutely love the your dress && I think it is very flattering on you! It fits your body so well and shows your figure!

I think your new dress will look great and I wouldn’t worry about how tall you will look next to your fiance. I’m only 5’0 and I wore heels and then platform sneakers to dance in. Your fiance loves you for all of you, and I’m sure your photographer will shoot the pictures in a way that flatters both of your heights.

I know you already bought a new dress but your original Maggie is amazing! Personally I think it looks better than the new one and it looks killer on you. Sorry, I know that doesn’t help

Sweety no matter what dress you wear you are short and your Fiance is tall, the shape of the dress won’t change that only heels!! And I hate those guides they are ridiculous, as long as your personality fits the dress then you can pull it off, period!

I like this dress a lot! Honestly my fiance is a foot taller than me, and I will be wearing whatever I want! I don’t care about the rules. Pick something you will love 🙂

I’m normally pretty blunt on these boards when brides ask if dresses are flattering on them. If it’s not, I say so and point out why I think it’s not working for them.
The one you have on in the self-picture seriously looks awesome on you. You’re short. So what? You still have the curves to pull a dress like that off. If you’re so self-conscious about your height then wear heels.
