Hi everyone! I just thought I’d post this because before I had no clue. I’m petite. VERY petite lol. I’m 4’11 and weigh 100 lbs. I was so worried when shopping for my wedding dress because nothing fits me. I have to have everything altered. I could wear kids clothes but really, what grown woman wants to wear a dress designed by Hannah Montana. 😉 When shopping for my dress I was worried about getting everything in the right place, meaning the waist to fall correctly, bust, etc. Also I was so worried about the hemming of the dress, especially if the skirt had any detail. I didn’t want all the detail to end up on the floor and thrown away. Anyway, fast forward the 6 months after I ordered my dress. We got it in, and I scheduled my appointment with the alterations department. The seamstress was very calming and positive when I expressed my concerns, insisting that it would be perfect and you’d never know, but I still had this niggling doubt in my head. So, I got the call Thursday that my dress was ready and scheduled a time to come in for a final fitting. The dress was PERFECT! It fit like a glove, and honestly looked like it was made for me. :):):):):) So, if any of you petite brides are worried, don’t be! Alterations really are amazing and can do just about anything. Good luck and congrats to all of you.

Thanks for posting about your experience. I have been worried about my getting my dress altered to fit me. My measurements are so out of wack (way smaller than the smallest size around bust, size 4 to 6 waist, and size 8 hips). I had to order my dress to fit my hips, but it will be way too big everywhere else! Glad to hear everything worked out for you! Hopefully I won’t have any issues either!

Awwwww yay!!! I’m 5’0″ and hover around 105-110 lbs. I ordered my dress and am (im)patiently waiting for it to arrive! I am SOOO nervous about how it will fit. The sample I tried on was so long and obviously did not look right on me, but the dress was so beautiful. I’m just hoping it looks as good as I have imagined it will… I’m so glad to hear that your dress fits you perfectly!!
PS. I have really tiny feet and often shop in the kids section because it’s cheaper! Some of the shoes look just like the adult ones… I will fully admit that I own a pair of “Wizards of Waverly Place” flats. 😀 Fiance LOVESSS to make fun of me for that, but the shoes are too cute and were so much cheaper!

Lol…that sounds like me. 🙂 I have shoes that are reminiscent of the Wiazrd of Oz and size 4 little girls and every time I wear them (sparkly ballet flats)FI says something. ;). I love them though.
