@D1NHER:  i thought i wanted simple and ended up with a lace gown as well.  it is stunning.  i didn’t bring anyone with me to my first fitting so i don’t have a picture of me in it. but here is the sample pic.

I will add – I NEVER thought I’d go with lace (over satin, no less). Just goes to show you never know!

Pic of you/yours?

This is the best pic I got.  I didn’t go with this dress,  it looked awesome on the mannequin, but it’s not really what I wanted.   It was also about 8 sizes too big, lol, but I thought it was really pretty, and didn’t overwhelm my smallness 🙂


I’m 5’4″, and just under 100 lbs, so not as short as you but I’m pretty small still.

Here’s mine…it honestly never occurred to me that lace wouldn’t work on a petite frame.  First time I’m hearing that.  I’m just about 5ft. Dress is by Anjolique
