I am highly considering a short wedding dress, since it will be sooo hot the day of the wedding, but I still have reservations. Anyone out there doing a short one also? Have pics? Or did you do a short dress and regret it? Ahhh..so many options!!

My dress is long, with not much of a train. With destination weddings, really anything goes. I know for me personally, I just love the long wedding dress look, no matter how hot it is!

Sorry, I have no advice. But I was definitely considering one (mostly because I'm short) as I was having a hard to finding gowns that didn't swallow me up and force me to do a ton of alterations. It will likely be an "average" of 93 when when I'm getting married. I ended up finding a nice, long chiffon dress that I love and I think I'll be completely comfortable in.

I was going to look into one, to be honest, but when I got to shopping it totally slipped my mind and I never asked to see one!

 

A lady on this board who married at my resort wore one and it looked great!

 

Anything goes!

I am only 5 feet tall, and never wear dresses that are floor length. A short dress is more me, I'm just scared I won't feel like a bride in one...

Have you looked into those ones that are longer in the back and shorter in the front.

I saw one the other day (thru photographer who did our family/engagement photos) and I thought it looked sharp.

the "high low" dresses look aweful on me! I'm only 5ft tall, and they make me look even shorter. :(  I saw a picture on Pinterest of a dress that is long for the ceremony and has a detachable bottom to make it short for the reception. I can't seem to find one anywhere though like that. Anyone heard of such a thing?

@@palmtree99 I'm 4'11" so you're taller than me if that makes you feel better! :) I completely understand where you're coming from. I never wear long dresses either. But I got a Pronovias dress. I think most of their dresses can be order to custom lengths. I didn't have any luck with any of the other designers I tried on. I was basically told they would chop the bottom off and with all the material left over, I could have had another dress made. It's a struggle being short! :)

@puravida2015  I will look into Pronovias, thank you! Hah, I'm not taller than anyone :) Yeah, being short is the worst, makes shopping very tricky!

I am also 5 foot tall…and I never wear long dresses because lets be honest…they are all too long! lol However, I knew with pretty much any wedding dress I get I would need alterations…so I am not really concerned that it is too long because it will be altered!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
