Short Wedding Dresses
The bridal dress of choice for many icons of our time including Audrey Hepburn and Yoko Ono, short wedding dresses have long been in vogue and offer a fun and fashion savvy alternative to longer length bridal gowns.
Short wedding dresses are available as new and preloved garments across many different styles and can be purchased in traditional white and ivory, champagne and pink shades. There are short wedding dresses to suit every bride and each style of occasion in sizes including 8 to 22 across regular, petite, plus size and tall size types.
Short wedding dresses are made from a variety of luxurious bridal fabrics such as silk, lace, satin, organza, chiffon and tulle. Your final choice will depend on your own sense of style and manner of occasion.
Venue in Mind
It is a given that short wedding dresses make perfect choices for beachside or summer weddings (and lessen the chance of a soiled train). If you know the sun will be shining on your big day opt for a strapless or strappy style dress made with floaty chiffon or soft lace to keep you cool and hike up the hemline to show off those legs!
If you are planning a church wedding consider a short wedding dress with a traditional lace pattern or one with 3/4, half or even long sleeves. A vintage inspired tea length dress (which will fall somewhere below the knee and above the ankle) incorporating embroidered tulle lace will ooze understated elegance, suitable for a more formal setting. If lace isn't an option try adding a full length veil to a short wedding dress for a show-stopping entrance.
Short wedding dresses also offer up a number of practical advantages compared to their longer length counterparts. This shorter style offers more comfort and freedom of movement, meaning trips to the powder room will be less stressful and after party dance moves will be unrestricted.
