Hi everyone. I'll be 69 when I marry my h2b. I'm just under 5ft and am currently size 18-20. Any suggestions on what type of dress I should wear please. I'm not looking to wear white. Thanks in advance
Hi it depends if you want something vintage style or something more modern, 50's style is lovely :)
A high low hem would look pretty with you being 5ft it will make you look taller. X
Have a look on Vivienne of Holloway, they have some stunning vintage dresses that would suit you x
I'd try some 50's tea length dresses, maybe with a petticoat? Polka dots and petticoats have loads, I got my bridesmaids dresses from there.
I would go with whatever makes you feel Good,it's not always about what you should wear it's about getting the bridal feeling from a dress
I'm also just under 5ft so I typed into Google wedding dresses for the short bride and I had loads come up try that xx good luck x
Yea 50s be nice try fairy gothmother x
I agree with 1950's dresses as so Amazingly flattering .....
# Elsie's Attic
Also consider whether going for a skirt & top as that is what I ended up choosing so I could wear it again in the future with different coloured tops & bottoms ....& different coloured petticoats change the skirt too ....
Thank you everyone for your comments. You've given me lots of ideas. Greatly appreciated
You should wear exactly what you are happy n comfortable in
I am 4ft11 and size 18-20 and have this dress. Makes me feel amazing. Oh I haven't mentioned my partner is 6ft4. xx
fit and flare will show ur figure and make u look taller
You can have any dress you want there are no height or size restrictions for brides x
Like you I'm fairly short & a size 20 I found a 50s inspired swing dress from lindy bop very flattering for my shape.
A line and corset back for the fuller figure
Have a look at veromia
This is a 50s Chiffon dress. Usually used for prom i think. Its on AliExpress xx
I was looking on wed2b website for dresses in the prom dress area and they do a lovely tea length dress, and Congress in a variety of colors, so could try looking there.
Try on all styles and go for what you love and get that feeling from I am 5ft 2 and thought I cannot not get a ball gown because it would make me look short but it was completely the opposite so go with open mind and just try on everything you can
Aline makes you look slimmer as it doesnt cling to you im pregnant but you couldnt see when i tried on aline style dresses i was shocked
I am the same so my question is are u getting married in a church or registry office? i have gone for a cream trouser suit and a hat with small bouquet of roses and and small high heel shoes xx
I am in my 40,s and am only 5 foot 3 this is the dress I wore , I tried on loose fitting ones like ball gowns they made me look even shorter . My friend wore a tea length for her wedding il post a photo below x
