I love this thread!  I am 5’1.5″ (the .5 is very important), and was just seaching weddingbee earlier today to fine posts about what is the best fit for petite brides.  I am going to trying on my first dresses in a few weeks, know what I like, but have no idea if it will look good on me! Can’t wait to see all your pics!!!!

My dress was a custom made Casablanca and was a princess silhouette with a full A-line. It wasn’t what I wanted, but I do realize that for my size and shape it was the most flattering. I’m 5’0, not the skinniest, and I have a fuller hourglass figure.

I am 5’0″ and pear shaped, so finding a dress that didn’t overwhelm my small frame and also didn’t exaggerate my hips was difficult. But I finally ended up going with a Maggie Sottero dress that I absolutely love!

Love it! πŸ™‚

5’2″, think I was on my tip toes in this picture haha.  This was a little big, they only had a size 10 to stick on me, ended up getting a 6.  Thankfully only had to have it shortened!!

The real question is… how much did alterations have to hack off the bottom of your dress?

@bump:  Ahhh this is where the thread went. I went back to see if anyone else posted in the original, and it moved. =) I’ll repost my dress bc I just love it that much to keep sharing. =)

@lauraf147:  I always tell people I’m 5’1 and 3/4. When as you’re short as us, every little bit counts!

I’m 5’1″ and I went with this A-line from Allure πŸ™‚ Haven’t gotten the real dress in (this one is 8 sizes too big… eeks!) but I’m really pleased with it!

Bees, your dresses look beautiful on you!!  Here’s a satin/organza “fit to flare” on 5’3″ (just got it, before alterations and poor photo quality):
