I think you would be able to wear a ball gown wedding dress, but you have to get it made for a petite person. Maybe at a place that caters to Southeast Asians such as Thai, Laotian, Cambodian, Filipino or Vietnamese. I say this because women from those countries are more likely to be petite. I also know that western style white wedding dress are becoming more popular in Thailand and Laos and I suspect the same is true in Laos and Vietnam. I think they have been popular a long time in the Philippines.
