@PaganJenny:  Ohhh my word yes! I am 5’1″ with DD’s….I see no one like that anywhere in mags, ever. I prefer to google image pictures of “real brides” along with the style # or designer I like, to get an idea of how it could potentially look on me. Don’t be discouraged! 🙂

@PaganJenny:  I know exactly how you feel…..I think thats why we turn to the bee so much looking for brides in dresses so we can see what they look like on real people! I know maggie sottero has a section on their website with real brides and I have always found that helpful!

****Of course I am married now but when I was looking!!

I felt the same way when I was flicking through bridal magazines, in the end I turned to google and blogs to see real life brides!

@PaganJenny:  You’ll find a lot of posts of real people in dresses on here. I would try to look at some of the dress threads on here rather than look at magazines. A lot of the dress models are super tall, standing on boxes, and/or photoshopped. Most women aren’t this tall or skinny.

I’m about the same size as you and just skipped the magazines.  I looked through designer’s websites, then googled the name of the dress to find real bride’s picks.
