When you think wedding gown, you probably don’t think of a mini! Instead, the words wedding gown conjures long, flowing, voluminous dresses draped in flounces and flowers, buttons and bows.
However, they’re hardly the only choice in wedding gown style and, if you’re a bride who likes to do things a little differently – or just aren’t into long, flowing gowns, a short wedding dress may be perfect.
Short wedding gowns are appearing increasingly among designer gown collections and, as such, brides looking for a shorter gown have plenty of choice in style, colour, cut and materials. And, of course, it’s completely up to the bride just how long – or short – you’re willing to go.
Tutti Fruitti by Charlotte Balbier is a simple dress that looks anything but. This knee-length paper taffeta affair features a classic boat neck collar and a puffball bubble skirt that is glamorous but also a little bit fun.
From Madeline Gardner’s Morilee collection, this taffeta wedding gown features crystal beading and, though it may be short, it’s still very, very romantic and the ivory coloring is perfectly elegant. You may not even need any accessories, well, except for your wedding band.
Sexy and powerful, this Elena Luka gown is short in the front and long in the back, and combines crisp and bright white with silver. What a stunning and memorable look!
From Justin Alexander, this tea length wedding gown combines the past with the present. It’s retro styling is detailed and delicate enough to suit a vintage wedding, but not so overbearing that it would be out of place in a more modern celebration.
Isaac Mizrahi’s 2013 bridal collection is full of surprises including this very sweet black and white gown. It works surprisingly well being delicate and feminine, yet also showing a bit of urban attitude. LOVE it!
