Honestly, I saw the pictures before I read your post and I was surprised to hear you’re 5′. You look way taller in the pictures! I think it’s a good dress ๐Ÿ™‚

I think it looks quite lovely on you!

I’m an inch and a half shorter than you are.  I wore a mermaid gown, and still kick myself every now an then for talking myself out of a more princessy look.

I think the dress looks great on you. For my personal tastes, it is too much, but I don’t think it’s too much in the general scheme of wedding dresses (as long as it is venue and season appropriate).

It’s definitively NOT too much. You look great in it, and you look taller than 5′.

It’s a beautiful dress but I don’t like that way it flows from the lower hip.  I prefer the stremline from the hip down but this might due to no alteration yet.

Because you asked this question, and because I always strive to be honest and helpful, I am going to say that, in my opinion, the skirt of this gown is just too overwhelming and textured for you.

I totally understand why you are drawn to some of the various dramatic elements of the gown — the sweetheart neckline; the form-fitting, beaded bodice; the ruffled skirt accented with flowers. However, to me, the IDEA of this type of dramatic dress is much more attractive than the actual execution, at least for this particular gown. To me, the skirt of this dress appears to be swallowing the rest of the dress — and you.

Perhaps you could use certain elements found in this dress as inspiration to provide an idea of some of the elements that you’d like to consider in a gown. However, I suggest that you prioritize which element(s) is/are most important to you, since I think it may be too much to try to incorporate all of them into your final selection.

I love the dress and don’t think it makes you look short at all!
