hi all, just wondering if there's anyone planning to wear a shorter knee-lenght dress? I have an idea in mind but can't seem to find exactly what i'm looking for. Has anyone else got the same problem? I want somethng with a full-ish skirt, and maybe lace detail. I have seen so many fab full lenght dresses that I'm tempted to give in! Any help and suggestions welcome! :)

I just looked a the photos on the homepage of the couple married in New York..i want her dress ..its EXACTLY what i've been trying to find!! Very jealous!strapless is out for that makes it even harder to get what i want. Thanks again..let me know if you have any better luck! :)

I had originally set my little heart on a short dress but when I tried on a few they just weren't working for me - the people in the dress shops were telling me it's because I'm not tall enough. I personally don't think that was the issue - but they didn't work nonetheless. Luckily enough I fell in love with a full length dress to so it didn't remain an issue. My dress is not strapless though - because much like some of you I just simply don't do strapless. They do tell you that adding straps is easy but in the end I went for this neckline - a little different I thought.
