bell616:  I love the first dress your mom nixed, but i think your choice is equally beautiful and looks to die for on your body

bell616:  I’m 5’1″ wore the Angel Rivera Juno.  It is trumpet with ruffles along the back so its a great combo of ruffles, but not too much that it overwhelmed my petite frame. (the only image online you can find is with the one shoulder design. Mine was strapless, here is a photo of me wearing it while dancing. It is organza, and extremly comfortable to wear!)

Ballgowns are great on petites. Each person’s body is different. I’m petite and I’m wearing a ballgown. No one is going to stop me! 

I love your dress, OP, but I also love you in that ballgown. Oh my gosh, it’s pretty fantastic on you.

I totally do not want to disregard what you are saying that, you don’t feel beautiful in your dress.  However, as someone who experienced dress regret I think it is sooo common because after commiting to a dress, you start thinking ‘But what if there is something better?’  So yeah totally go and try on other dresses and see if you can find something you feel more beautiful in.  BUT, I honestly think you look incredible in your dress, you obviously did try on quite a few dresses and you decided on that one for a reason.  All the best to you.  PS.  You look sooo good in a ballgown!

m2016 I adore your dress (remember my dilemma between yours and “Exotico”??? I really like the idea of wearing mikado as a bride but am afraid I wont… 🙁

I am 5’3″ and wearing a ballgown. I can’t wait to put it on when it comes in my size!  You look great in a ballgown and your dress is gorgeous!
