I think mine is pretty classic. It’s Rivini Freya.

I tried on the same gallina gown as the one pictured above and it was gorgeous but I went with aless expensive online gown. Personally I don’t think you can get anymore classic/romantic than lace!
This is the dress I went with and I love it!

Here is a dress that I tried on that my mom and Future Mother-In-Law both described as floaty and romantic:

@WolvLove: I’m on the short end too.  From what I’ve read around the internet, ballgowns tend to swallow up short girls and make them look shorter, but I would think it depends on the person and the dress more than anything.  

My mom and I pretty much agree on an A-line silhouette (although sometimes we disagree about what ‘A-line’ means), so hopefully that won’t make me look even shorter.  From what I’ve seen on this board so far, it seems like A-lines are generally considered reasonably classic / timeless / romantic.  🙂

I’m a short girl (5’2″) and I got an enormous ball gown!!  With a drop waist, I think it elongates nicely!  I think mine is very classic, and the lace makes it very romantic!  Can’t wait to wear it!  Good luck to you on your quest! 🙂

@MissBananaBread: I am 5’2″ and form my pics above you can see I wore a ballgown. I was scared because I had heard the same thing but I actually think it turned out nice. I think it depends on the body type.

@mandypop:

I love Marisa! One of my top contenders was a Marisa gown. And you’re right, the designer is quite mysterious, but in a good way.

I don’t have a picture of me in the dress, but I went with a Pronovias gown for my Museum wedding! I wouldn’t call it timeless or romantic, but I do feel it is somewhat classic. I was looking for a dress with a lot of DRAMA, and felt this one in the mermaid / fit & flare flattered me most, whilst still having that ballgown affect towards the bottom to keep it somewhat classic.

By The Way, I’m also short and felt the mermaid / fitted dresses were best for my height. They made me feel statuesque, whereas I felt sort of lost in all the fabric of a ballgown! But everyone is different depending on your proportions. Good luck. Dress shopping is so much fun!! xx

If you like lace…it’s the Wtoo Zora…I had my mother-in-law add the buttons down the back and close up the front so I didn’t show too much cleavage.
