When I went shopping I said I wanted to try on all shapes . . . They put me in every type of gown . . . I don’t think that’s an uncommon request.

@CassandraAshley:  I would try a fit and flare!

These are all gorgeous and look about 110 lbs, not sure about height though.

@CassandraAshley:  A-lines are universally flattering. There are different degrees of a-line. You can get one pretty full, to a modified a-line that is more form fitting. Severe mermaids and trumpets can cut off us short gals. There are always exceptions though. Honestly, you won’t know what works until you go and try stuff on. A good consultant will be able to have an idea of what is going to work on you and give suggestions.

A-lines are pretty universally flattering. As long as you let the consultant know it’s your first trip they’ll be happy to help you try on different stuff.

@CassandraAshley:  ball gowns actually make short brides look shorter. Fit and flare and a line are flattering on most figures.

@CassandraAshley:  To be honest you aren’t going to know what looks good on you until you go try on lots of different dresses!


Keep your options open and try on different styles! You are pretty average height….I wouldn’t consider 5’4″ short so you can prob pull off most styles. Also if you wear heels that will put you at taller than average so you have nothing to worry about in regards to your height really!

The first time that I went shopping I told them I have no idea what I want so I want to try on one of everything. 

I also said if you have one dress that is ugly and/or over the top and nobody ever wants to try it on, I will try that dress on because I’ve got nothing to lose. 

The one that she brought me when I said that was not ugly or over-the-top. it was beautiful. Just way too heavy for my September wedding.  I was a little bit disappointed actually.
