The Short Wedding Dress

More and more designers are adding the short cocktail-length wedding gown to their collections. These mini wedding dresses were mainly recommended for beach or destination weddings because of their more casual, summery look. But today’s designs have become ever fancier and classier, and brides today are choosing them as an alternative to the classic long gown. I’m really becoming a fan of this cutie since it comes with benefits: affordability–it’s usually cheaper than a long wedding gown due to the use of less fabric–and the flexibility to move around and dance to any style of music. Your look can be sweet but sexy at the same time, and you can really show your personality with such a non-traditional wedding dress!

  1. I love this post. I think short wedding dresses are great. Brides are now wearing them at all types of weddings, not just beach weddings, these days. I think almost every bride has an insane fear of tripping while walking down the aisle. With the short wedding dress concept this fear has all but been eliminated!

    I love the dresses you are showcasing. I especially love the Oscar de la Renta Dress in the third row.

  2. I like your design for short wedding dress, very good dan beautiful
