Ooooh I love that one too!  I’m surprised because these are two silhouettes that I thought I would never be able to wear, but both of you petite brides look bee-utiful!

Thanks!

I just found that overall the strapless/poofy dresses/ dresses with pickups made me look like a child bride.  This dress is very flattering on a petite figure and is a little sexy.  Though, with alterations, it will not be as much of a deep V in front or back. 

I went with a dress that I felt like I was wearing, rather than it was wearing me,  There were also a bunch of lace vneck ones that I felt looked good on me too.  I think the key is in a tailored top and not-too-big of a skirt.

I am a petite bride as well.  So it was rather difficult finding a dress that fit me since I’m about 100-105lbs and I’m 5’0" tall.  I honestly thought I would never find a dress since all of the samples were made for people that are size 9 and 5’9.  You should consider looking at Casablanca Dresses.  They are great for petite people.  Look at the attached link and you’ll see a pic of me in my dress under hhcheung2000.  The pattern helps to elongate my body and make me look taller than I really am!  It’s a Casablanca 1948.

Pretty!  I should mention my dress is Marisa 710.  If it helps to know, I am 5’1 and 105 lbs.

I’m still waiting to be allowed to take pictures of my dress (going to get measured next week and that is when they’ll let me snap photos!), but I’m going to be wearing a James Clifford J1820. It is great…shows off my figure (I’m 5’3 and 102lbs)…I just love it! I’ll have to post more pics when I actually get to see it on me…albeit it will be with huge clips holding it on!

How frustrating is that by the way…that all of the samples are so freaking big? I understand why it is that way, but I was having such a hard time because half of the dresses I tried on you had to pretty much just imagine how they will look in the proper size!

Thank you!!!! I love it too!!! I can’t wait to get the "real" pictures from our photographer. These just don’t do it justice.

*ugh!  sorry, trouble with the pictures…

After trying on like a hundred size 10 dresses and not being able to imagine what it would look like on me in my size (5’3" about 105)…I decided to have one made!  It is still in the process of being made, and I cannot wait to see it finished!  I know it will fit me perfectly…yeah!
