I love this maggie sottero dress It’s called Sabelle.
This is me trying it on:
I Really love it but I am scared it will be too much dress for me I am only 4’11” When I tried it on I was on a stepping stool. I love how it looked on me. They told me they would alter it to my size but I’m scared. My family loved it as well but some of my friends think it might be too overwhelming for me. What do you think? Any short brides out there have this dress or something similar???
This is the dress on the model:

I personally think it looks great on you! The gown makes you appear taller. My maggie did the same for me, I’m 5’3″

I tried one on that was similiar to yours, it was Ambriosa and I really liked it. I wanted to wear my dress, instead of having the dress wear me, so I ended up not purchasing it.
HOWEVER, one of my girlfriends is also 4’11” and was able to pull a similar dress off at her wedding 😉 She wore high heels and looked stunning.
I think, if you really love the dress, then go for it. I have dress remorse and wished I would have gotten a fuller dress. I envy all the pretty dresses with the pick ups.
And by the way, it’s really good on you 😉

Looking at the picture I’d never know you’re 4’11” so you wear it just fine. Just trade the stepping stool with some heels and go for the petite size.

I’m just about the same height as you and I’m going for a big Maggie dress too that is apparently pretty heavy and has a lot of layers. You look great. Go for it!

I’m only an inch taller than you are, so I understand your concerns. I think as long as the dress is taylored to you, you won’t have any problems. You will be amazed at how gorgeous it looks once it’s altered to fit you.
You look beautiful.

it’s a gorgeous dress, wear heels, and make sure they cut the dress based on your hem to hollow measurement so that it’s proportioned correctly. go for it!

i am only 4’11” too..It has been very difficult to find a dress. I think this looks great on you!! Are you ordering it in petite? I know even with the maggie in petite I will still have to hem it, us under 5 feet girls have it hard. Make sure you stand off that stool, with all the Maggie’s I have tried I make sure to get off whatever stool they put me on because I think “oh wow this looks great, I look so tall” I am very close to purchasing the Jenna, and I originally thought it would be too much dress for someone my height, but it actually makes my torso area look taller.
