The very first wedding gown i tried on was from the designer justina Mccaffrey … i love all her simple and classy design and the materials she used for her wedding dresses. The style i like is called Jubilate. http://www.justinamccaffrey.com
The second dress i tried on and the one i am planning to buy is from paloma blanca and style 3802. My sisters sa me in both dresses and they both told me that the paloma blanca dress was more flaterring on me. I think because i am 5foot3 a size 0 and tanned, the paloma blanca dress accentuate my upper body better and also the blush color goes perfectly well with a tanned skin tone. The bottom part of the paloma blanca is also better suited for my body compared to the justina mccaffrey gown which iis larger from the waist line to the bottom.
www.palomablanca.com Dress number 3 is from Pnina Tornai. I saw one of her dress from the TLC SHOW say yes to the dress and immediately fell in love. Unfortunately the dress i like is not in my budget(i mean my parent’s budget because they are the one paying for my dress … i know they won’t mind buying me that dress if i really want it but i do not want them to spend that much on my dress….that why i already told them a budget for my dress and sticking to the budget no matter how much i love a dress), so no need for me to try the dress…coz i know i will not be able to buy it …and this will make me sad. This dress is from the website http://www.kleinfeldbridal.com NEW york and i think it is the only shop selling her design. im not 100% sure though. So here are the 3 wedding dresses i really liked. Tell me what you think and if i made the right choice.

It’s difficult to pick a dress without actually seeing it on you, but I would go with your sisters’ advice and choose dress 2. You’re likely to go overbudget on so many other things, that it’s worth saving early on in the planning.
If you’re 5’3", the dress will need a lot of hemming, and perhaps you can have the extra material made into roses like in the Pnina dress.

the second dress is beautiful! if that one is most flattering to your figure, then definitely choose that one. no point in getting an expensive, beautiful dress, only to find out that you don’t look your best because it doesn’t suit your body type.

the second one is a great dress. 🙂

I think because you are so petite that option 2 is the best. I’m afraid that in the other dresses the dress may be wearing you, instead of you wearing the dress. While #2 has volume on the bottom, it is form fitted on the top and does not seem like it would overtake your small frame too much. And it’s beautiful 🙂

i like dress #2… I dont like all the flowers on dress 3. If you do want that dress for cheap there are some websites that you can buy from that will sell it to you 30% cheaper than the MSRP. You just need to make sure they have gotten a lot of good reviews.
That’s how my bridesmaids have bought their dress and they got it 60 dollars cheaper than any bridal store i’ve been to.

I agree with MsB, too often you see petite girls’ dresses completely overpowering them…I think #2 will look the best on you, based on your description. Gorgeous dress!

Thank you all for your helpful comments. Now i can say i do not regret choosing dress number 2 and know that i made the right choice considering my body type and all. My choice for number 2 was also due to the fact that it has volume in the bottom. As far as i remember i always wanted to wear a dress with volume …and unfortunately most dresses with volume result like MsB said being the dress wearing me instead of me wearing the dress. I am so happy i found dress number 2 coz it has a little bit of volume in the bottom and also the blush color goes perfectly well with my skin tone.
Blackbird …what a wonderful idea…i never though of that!
My only concern about dress number 2 is that it has only a zip in the back …. but the store owner told me i could order buttons from the designer in the same color of the dress and they will be able to add it all along the zipper at a small cost.
p.s anyone has a picture of the back of paloma blanca style 3802
