Are the requirements for this style of modelling any different to high fashion modelling requirements?

It depends on the designer/show/production.

Some of the local bridal shows around here cast girls who aren't even marketing themselves as llamas to save on budget....

The bigger productions tend to use girls who are agency represented, or at least agency standard.

I love doing bridal modeling and IMO, they come in all shapes and sizes. Although I can understand what you mean to an extent because most wedding dresses by default are made for women 5'8" and up with or without heels.

See I'd love to do it but I'm very slim and only 5'3. But then surely At wedding fayres there's women my height and build wanting to know what a dress of a certain style would look like on someone there height and build. Which is why I wondered if the requirements were much different.

I've been to a few castings for bridal magazines sold on stands in stores.  They use agency models.

For smaller publications or individual advertisements they may not go the agency route.
