Ways to Find Your Prefect Wedding Dress
Finding the perfect dress for a little bride can be difficult. Many dresses are designed with long skirts and trains, so you will probably have to make changes. When it comes to the overall silhouette, the key is to find something that will emphasize your figure and highlight your frame in a beautiful way.
To ensure a good fit, we have collected all the tips and tricks to find “the one” for petite and petite brides. Before you start looking for your wedding dress, think about these ideas:
Stay monochrome. Try to find a dress that uses the same material throughout, without exaggerated details. Some details are ok, but smooth fabrics like stretch satin and crepe are ideal. Smoother fabrics will help visually lengthen their stature and create clear vertical lines.
Avoid horizontal stripes. Instead, pay attention to the vertical folds on the skirt, vertical seams on the top and a long row of buttons on the back. These options will create a flattering silhouette and make you look taller. If you want to add a belt or ribbon, choose the same color pattern.
Choose a high-waisted Design. An Empire waist dress, that is, the Waist cuts just below the chest, makes your legs look longer. A soft and light skirt is ideal here. We also like this Silhouette for a tall bride.
Pay attention to the length. As mentioned above, you will probably need changes, so avoiding a long train will help reduce costs. It also means skipping the long sails of the chapel.
Do not hide your beauty. Dramatic prom dresses with a full and fluffy skirt will make you look shorter instead of taller. Swollen shoulders and voluminous fabrics and details also create disproportion and make you look matterous.
Pump up your shoe game. To complete your wedding Anniversary Look, add a pair of high heels-from Fancy stilettos to casual Espadrilles. Comfort is the key, so be sure to wear them throughout the house to break them. This is a great idea if the height difference between you and your future spouse is significantly different.
Now that you know what to look for, take a look at some of our most popular wedding dress styles and silhouettes for short brides:
One of the most feminine silhouettes for a wedding dress is the mermaid / trumpet style. This style is super flattering and emphasizes the chest and hips of a bride. This is a great Option for the petite bride who wants to show off her curves. The flared skirt brings a little volume (not to mention drama) and does not overwhelm a shorter frame. If you want your legs to be even longer, choose a size higher than your natural Waist.
We found two completely different Looks here: a strapless mermaid dress made of stretch satin and a bold, fitted trumpet dress. The satin dress is classic, with a straight neckline and satin buttons. The embroidered details on the trumpet dress are enough to add a little Dimension without overwhelming the Silhouette.
A common style for a shorter bride is the columnar or sheath dress. The Simple Silhouette is perfect for the bride who likes minimalist Design or wants something creeping to highlight her curves. The vertical seam lengthens the body – from the shoulders to the hips. This is also a great Option for an outdoor wedding, because most of these dresses are made of light fabric.
The off-the-shoulder sheath dress on the left is super elegant and made of flowing crepe. The curtain also creates a beautiful shape. Another awesome choice is the Imari sheath dress. The scallop lace detail emphasizes the dress and brings a modern touch to the Silhouette.
An a-line dress is another great Option for a petite bride — the Silhouette fits her hips to accentuate her Waist. We especially like an a-line dress with a defined Empire Waist that creates this elongated effect. This style is perfect for any type of wedding, from a casual outdoor ceremony to a traditional church wedding ceremony.
For the modern bride, the clean lines of the Persephone dress on the right side are perfect. The V-neck is chic and the romantic coco jacquard fabric adds a whimsical touch. If you are looking for something Bling, the tulle sequined dress with jewel neckline is fantastic. We like the sheer top with the illusion leg and scalloped keyhole. The lace appliqué adds a touch of Vintage romance. Both skirts have a longer train, but you can shorten the hem or add a drift for a shorter bride.
After all, you can’t go wrong with a short wedding dress. This style is super fashionable today and absolutely functional for any type of wedding. Shorter brides will love to show off their legs and they will look taller. Also, what a great way to show off finisher shoes! The best part is that you can have all the ornaments you want without disturbing your Figure.
The Loki off-the-shoulder lace dress is awesome. We love the fun tiers and the scalloped lace neckline. Ruffled sleeves look whimsical and romantic — a heavenly Duet. For a more elegant version of a simple dress, this midi dress with Cami neckline adds volume thanks to a transparent tulle yoke. The flowing skirt is absolutely swirly, which means you can dance and swing all night long.
