I’m only 4’11”, and heard the same thing! Apparently I needed something “form fitting,” but I hated feeling constricted in any way, especially around my hips. I’m not done dress shopping yet, but this Mori Lee 2674 is my front-runner for now. I’d get it in ivory.

I’m 5’3″ and I got a ball gown. Petite brides can wear ballgowns. However there are certain styles that  will look better on our stature and frames. When I went wedding dress shopping for the first time I was talking with my bridal consultant about this and she said usually for petite brides, empire waist or natural waist ball gowns look the best because it creates an illusion of height because the skirt is higher. And she was abosolutely right! I wasn’t too big on the empire waist but the natural waist ballgowns I found looked the best on me. After I found the silhouette that looked the best on me, I bought my dream dress online!

My dress still needs alterations done to it so it kind of looks messy right now because the skirt is too long. But I love her! She’s gorgeous! I can’t wait to wear it in 11 months! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m 5’0″ and I’ll be in a ballgown as well. Unfortunately I don’t have any actual photos of me in my gown because the bridal salon I bought it from do not allow pics to be taken in there, so here’s a model pic of my gown:

citygirl828:  Thank you! And yes, it’s a Pnina. You’re dress is gorgeous as well and you’re lucky you don’t need alterations! It looks like it fits you perfectly! Alterations for me has become such a headache with my dress! I keep trying to call bridal salons to see if they’ll do alterations to my dress and every single one of them have said that they only do alterations for gowns that were purchased in their store! It’s getting very frustrating lol
