@Cennet: OMG! I know what you mean!! I’m Barely 5′ and I constantly am wearing 3″ heels!!  I have found a gorgeous dress, but I chose a romantic ball gown.  If you choose a dress that’s not entirely busy in front, then you can really pull it off.  I found out that any floorlength dress (with heels, hehe) can make you look taller.  I was paranoid when I went shopping that I would be a teeny girl in a ball of white, lol, but it worked out perfectly πŸ™‚


That’s mine.  Don’t let your height dictate what you can and cannot wear, just go try on dresses for fun and find the one you love best. 

P.S. I almost went for a completely fitted Maggie Sottero πŸ™‚

At 5’2″, I’m not the absolute shortest, but I definitely look it next to my 6’3″ fiance and his 6’6″ brother and dad!  I’m definitely wearing a ballgown, though.  I’m also wearing heels, which helps.  Mine’s the Maggie Sottero SaBelle:

@GreenEyedMoon: Haha, the men in my family are tall as well, and my fiance is exactly 6′ and exactly one foot taller than me, I look really short next to him, hehe πŸ™‚

I’m about 5’2″/5’3″.  My Fiance is several inches taller than me, but I’m not dwarfed by the height difference… and I HAVE to wear heels, or I have NO GRACE! LOL!

I’m wearing a fantasy-ish type gown instead of the traditional wedding gown.  LOVE the Maggie Sottero SaBelle, though!  I just want to be able to walk in my gown, lol.

Yes ma’am– I am barely 5′ with shoes on.  My dress is Geena by Sottero & Midgley.  I really really don’t wanna have to wear huge heels though!

I’m in the just barely 5’0 camp too.  I wore 3 inch heels and this dress (Casablanca 1881):

I really liked a different Maggie dress, but the skirt was too big for me proportionally.  Being short made dress shopping tough, I wish you all the best!

I’m 5′ and my bf is 5’4 or so, so I can really only get away with a kitten heel to not be taller than him so I feel your pain!  My first hubby was 6’3″ and I wore sky high heels with my gown!
