I’m 5’3″ and I’m wearing a ball gown. The trick if you’re petite is to either wear a natural or empire waist ball gown or a mermaid. Petite brides can’t wear dropped waisted ball gowns because it cuts them off right in the middle so it will make you look shorter. It will also create the illusion that the dress is swallowing you whole. Having the longer skirt that sits at the natural waist will create an illusion of height. Same thing goes with a mermaid or trumpet because it elongates your frame. I hope that makes sense.

This is my beauty! 🙂
