Cait2007:  I really do like that dress, it just didnt have enough sparkle for me. If it had sequins or something on it I probably would have gone for it!

I’m 5’2″ and wearing 4 inch heels. In the photo, the dress has been pinned but not altered. Hope this helps!

I am 5’1″. My dress is Maggie Sottero Lorie. I ordered it 5″ shorter in front! I can’t wait to see how it looks when it finally gets here in June! The anticipation is killing me!!  This was the sample…

I’m 5’0 and will be wearing this a-line dress.

I’m meeting with my seamstress soon and I’m super nervous about how everything will turn out! I’m not trying to mask the fact that I am short, but I also don’t want to look out of proportion or like my legs have been chopped off. My sister snapped this incredibly unflattering picture of me in the dress at home and I look like Alvin from Alvin and the Chipmunks! Granted the dress is too big and I’m not wearing shoes but still…

I plan on raising the waistlilne at least 3 inches so that it hits at my natural waist. I may also take out some of the crinoline so that the dress doesn’t overwelm my body and will take the skirt in at the sides. I’ll also wear 4 inch heels for the wedding. Any other alteration tricks I should consider? Is the wide belt causing problems?
