I would try going the custom route for your situation. Because you are so petite even altering a pre-designed dress wouldn’t look right on your frame, the proportions would be all off! I would find pictures of a styles you like and take them to a talented dress maker so they can fit your body/proportions correctly.
In terms of what to look for I would stay away from ball gown and drop waist styles. A ball gown will give you that “flower girl” look because you are so small (I know the feeling, I’m only 5’0 100 pounds). A fit and flare or modified a-aline silhouette would look nice. If you have no butt I would stay away from mermaid and trumpet dresses as they need curves to help fill them out. I would also look for a sweetheart neckline as it will give you a little more up top.

This would look gorgeous:
A style like this would look great on you too as it would define your waist:

My brother’s wife is about your size. She had such a hard time finding a dress and she ended up getting one custom made. It was less than the wedding dresses she was trying on. It was less than $500.

why dont you make an appointment at a bridal store near you and try on some dresses. Thats is really the BEST way to tell what will look best on you.

@Totes Magotes: It is a Jim Hjelm dress. Like I said, though, I would maybe try on a few dresses and then go the complete custom route. Altering a dress that was meant to fit someone a foot taller and 50 pounds heavier than you (even if you can order hollow to hem) won’t look right because the proportions would still look off.
