Petite Wedding Dresses

For brides who are under 5 foot 4 inches tall, petite wedding dresses are the perfect choice to create a statuesque look on their special day. Unlike traditional ball gowns, petite gowns are designed to accentuate and highlight the bride's assets, rather than overwhelming her with fabric and tulle. For a more formal affair, a smart floor length petite wedding dress is ideal, while a knee length gown with heels will make the bride stand out in a summer or tropical location wedding.

Petite brides searching for the perfect wedding dress should consider a sheath or modified A-line gown. These styles have waistlines that are higher than the natural waist, which can help create the illusion of longer legs. To keep the look simple, these dresses have minimal embellishments, such as no big bows, long trains, or gathered skirts. If there are embellishments, they are usually limited to the bodice to draw the eye upwards and focus on the bride’s face and neckline. Finding a dress with the right proportions for petite frames can be a challenge, but selecting a gown from a petite collection ensures that the dress is tailored to fit.
