If you’re going the custom route – I’d avoid anything with a lot of lace or embellishments – because you will likely be disappointed.  The replica companies do a great job with the shape and general concept of a dress, but the difference is apparent in the expensive details like lace. I saw a replica of that first dress, and it was not what you’d probably hope for.

I would check out designs (or replicas) by Jenny Yoo, Nicole Miller, J Crew – etc.

Oh my goodness that dress in the 5th picture (with the girl looking downwards and holding a bouquet) is gorgeous – where did you find it?!

I think that something in the style of the first dress would suit a petite frame – A-line with only a moderate flare. It would accentuate a small waist without having the ‘poof’ factor. I would also look for something in a sheath style (like the second-last dress you have there) because the way it hugs your silhouette wouldn’t add bulkiness / wouldn’t swalllow you up.


These are a couple that I quite liked, that I think would flatter your shape without being overwhelming:
