I think the dress is very pretty! That’s a great option in dealing with someone who is petite. I think the dress looks bridal and have a feeling it will feel more bridal once you try it on with a veil!

I’m not clear on whether you bought it already or not… It’s a nice dress, but the cut across the bodice is going to make you look flatter than you really are since it’s designed for girls before they’re fully in puberty.

I wonder if you could put a gentle sweetheart in the neckline and some cups in the bodice to help with that?

I would love to see you in it, since maybe it looks totally different on you.  Otherwise, it is a pretty dress!

you can definitely do alterations on this dress to make it more sophisticated,  for example, putting a sash around the waist to emphasize your figure, altering the neckline to make it look more grown-up, changing the girlish spaghetti straps to a sleeved or strapless dress, etc.  Also, you could always wear crinolines under it for extra volume and get a chapel veil for extra length!  I think the details are quite pretty.

It is a really pretty dress! You could change the neckline to make it a little more flattering on your chest. Finding a Jr dress is a really good idea though for a fit for you. But if I were you I would definately alter it to make it more “grown up” looking.

ah i think you can definitely modify the sweetheart like mrs. dg said, you could also get more beading sewn onto the bodice… take it to a great seamstress and i’m sure they could change it to your modifications… no biggie and score for coming in under budget…

It’s a very pretty dress but a little plain – sorry

Take the buttons off and put a large brooch or flower, straps out of strong of rhinestones, add more swarovski crystals to the embellishments already on the dress, alter the neckline a little making it more of a sweetheart neckline.

Go all the way with a cathedral veil for the ceremony and a birdcage for the reception – something to make it more bridey.

But, good option for someone your size. There’s not a lot ot there for a really petite bride.

I’d love to see you in the dress.

I think it looks very bridal.  What about adding a lacy bolero to make it a bit more sophisticated?
