    Dress ideas 👗

    So I'm looking for a dress that I could wear on our wedding day. We don't want a huge thing and I honestly can't see the point spending an absorbent amount of money on a dress. I know people will say go in store and try them then but it online, which makes sense, I get that. My question is, I'm vertically challenged (5ft 1) and finding things that fit is always so hard. I'm wondering if you know of particular styles of dresses that could suit short brides or styles that I could alter easily? I thought maybe if I look at those styles I might find a better fit and usually my tailoring is almost as much as the clothes sometimes. Any ideas/ suggestions would be awesome. Thanks again

    My mom is also vertically challenged She bought a cheap lace prom dress for like $30 I think (college days). It doesn't have a train or anything...just a simple lace full-length dress. Maybe you could check online stores for a simple normal dress in the style of your choice.

    Can't you make one yourself? Or have any friends that know how to taylor one?
    Distance means nothing when someone means everything.

    I've no skill in that area and sadly don't know anyone who could assist. I've been researching and it's quite astonishing how in much the price increases when the word "wedding" is mentioned.

    I am also tiny and I think those sleek sheath dresses look great and they'd probably be the easiest to tailor on your own. Maybe like these? 1 2 3 Definitely looking in non-bridal stores will make it easier to find an affordable dress.

    WeddIng dresses don't have to be expensive. Mine was only $350 from David's bridal last year. Fortunately, mine fit like a glove and didn't need a single alteration. Have you considered a tea length or short dress, or are you looking for a traditional wedding dress?


    I love him. Forever. And every day after that.

    I'm liking the whole bohemian style and would like 3/4 to long sleeves as it'll be winter when we get married. I'm happy to go with something I can dress up and wear again for other functions.

    I bought an ivory coloured dress from a regular store for about 50. The shop is Coast but I think it might only be UK. When I'm home later I'll try to find a photo.
    A flower can grow, but it can never change into a different flower.
