Personally, I think a wedding in Vegas is the best place ever for a short wedding dress.  The dress you posted is SO adorable, and a little sexy too.  I’d say go for it.  (And, PS, my MoH gets those same hives, so I totally understand where you’re coming from.)  🙂  Good luck!

I say, wear which ever one makes YOU feel more comfortable and confident! You already know you’re going to feel nervous so make sure that you have something that is going to help relieve that instead of make it worse. I love, love LOVE the short dress!!! It’s beautiful, bridal and different!!! But I’m usually the one bucking the system, so you might not want to take my advice.

As far as having someone walk with you, I’d say, again, do what ever is going to make YOU feel most comfortable and don’t worry about anyone else’s opinion. I did not want my dad walking me down. So, I asked my middle brother to do it. If you have a close friend (male or female), a relative, or consider coming in the back and having your Fiance walk up the isle to meet you at the back of the facility. You guys could walk down to the front together. I love the imagery of that, with the couple approching the alter (or insert better non-religious word) as a team.

Another comment on this topic. I knew that I was going to be very nervous that whole day. I’m very type A and anxious. So I had a friend come by the house and do a grounding meditation with me for about 10 minute before I got into my dress. It was WONDERFUL and probably the best decision I made. It really help me be in the moment. I’d recommend having someone outside with you who can help you through the nervousness and help you focus on what this is all about whether that’s prayer or meditation or whatever. Do everything you can to make the moment comfortable and safe for you! Let me know if i can be of more help! Good luck! You’ll do wonderfully!!

I think that dress is super cute and would look really nice! (unless, of course, you’re quite a bit taller than the model, making it potentially too short for comfort.)

 Do you have a mother-type figure that could walk you down the aisle?

Good luck!
