Wedding Dresses Tips for Petite Body Brides

When choose wedding dresses for petite brides, you need to know which styles suit them. Some tips are also important to know. Generally, petite brides should avoid overwhelming their small frame. Choose airy sheaths and structured trumpet styles over big, frothy ball gowns.

A dropped-waist or mermaid silhouette isn't off limits. Just opt for slim, more structured skirts over wide, poofy ones.

When done right high-low hemlines of lace wedding dress can be an asset, and may even make your legs look longer.
