    I feel like most people are against them (I say this because a couple of people I have mentioned that I was thinking of a short dress to, have reacted in shock and have made me feel like i was in the complete wrong for even considering it!)

     

    I am a very petite bride - I am only 4'10"

    I feel as if a regular full length gown would swallow me! I have worn longer gowns before. I had a quinceanera princess ball gown when I was 15, so I know I do not want to do that again. 

     

    I am also a bit on the different, unconventional, totally non traditional side of things.

     

    What do you all think? (I will be trying on my first wedding dresses this coming Memorial Day weekend!)

    I am short too - though not as short as you. I originally was toying with the idea of a shorter dress - that was FI's request, and I thought it would be great on a beach. I had a lot of eyebrows raised at me about getting a short one though. And I ended up getting a longer one. It was hard to try short ones on when shopping, since they would have had to be shortened to get the full effect, so it was hard to tell what did and did not work.

     

    For me, personally, tea-length did not work, but I am a little curvy and they made me seem round. Ones about knee-length were much better; very comfortable and fun.

     

    I say, though, go for it. Go for what you want, what would make you comfortable and feel beautiful. At the end of the day, THAT will look better than pictures of you unhappy in a more traditional dress, just because it is what everyone thought you "should" wear. There are some awesome short dresses out there! I love the look and the idea of a short one. Perfect for a beach. Try on lots, and see what works for you. And be sure to post lots and lots of pictures!

              HI Beauties!  I hope all is going well with your planning.  I have been a newlywed for almost 2 months now!  I cannot believe how quick time is going by.  It has been such a whirlwind since we've come back from Mexico.  We are so happy and wish we could do it all over again!  I feel so behind on this site.  I am just starting to catch back up with everything here.

               

              I wanted to share some photos of my Paloma Planca Style #4115 with you.  I added the sequined belt to bring a little bit of bling to it.  I am sorry I could not decide what pictures to post so I kinda went a little nuts and posted a bunch.  Please bare with me...I am a giddy bride!  LOL  xoxo
