I’m 5’2 (almost) and this is my dress. It’s from the Spring 2014 collection and no stores in my area have a sample for me to try on, so no pics of me wearing it yet. I will def post pictures once my dress arrives at the bridal store where I purchased it. I’m going to wear 4 inch heels.

These dresses all look great!  I was surprised to hear that so many of you are wearing 4-5 inch heels!  I am short but I have never ever been able to wear heels with confidence.  Anyone else wearing less than 3inch heels?

Here’s my dress (but I don’t have pics of me in it because the salon wouldn’t allow pics).  I haven’t seen my dress in so long that I honestly can’t even remember how I look in it.

I’m 5’3″ and went with a just under tea-length dress. All the floor-length ones I tried one just made me fell shorter & the full on tea-length was horrible! I had them bring it up to just over my knees & added a 2-3″ wedge heel & I was tall enough to kiss my hubby without him leaning over!

I’m 5 feet even and ended up wearing my modified A-line with flats since I really like how I fit right into my SO’s arms. Here’s how it looked on the big day –

@BeckyS0:  You look amazing in your dress! I love the neckline especially. I always saw myself wearing a shorter dress too… up until I fell  ridiculously in love with my dress’s train.

@Saria213:  Can you tell me the designer and name of your dress? It is absolutely gorgeous! Is it Sherbet colored?

Here’s my dress. I loved the top detail on the bodice which helps draw attention to my face. 🙂

I’m 5’4 and wore 2″ heels

5’2″ and only wearing very low wedges, practically flats. I think I would have loved a ball gown but they swallowed me! My dress is being made to measure with some small changes to the neckline and the addition of cap sleeves.  I’m so lucky made to measure was an option because we were slightly overwhelmed by the alterations needed with most lace gowns and simply hemming doesn’t fix the fact that the proportions of the dresses were still for someone much taller. I finally get to try on *my* dress in a month… can’t wait!

@xkrsa:  I love your dress! And it’s so flattering on you! Where did you buy it? Who is the designer. I love it so much, I may have to see if I can find it myself!

@LeonardLady:  Sure! It’s Allure 9018. The technical color is ivory over light gold. I added Allure’s custom cap sleeves to it as well. Here are a few more pictures from the big day in all kinds of different lighting. I absolutely love the color, it’s super flattering!  🙂
