In the world of bridal, there are many different shapes and cuts and styles, ranging from modern and chic to classic and vintage. There are slits and sleeves, ball gowns and trumpets, sheer and full coverage. All of which, are beautiful in their own right, but the style we are obsessing over today is a style that cuts a little above the knee and creates a flirty and fun wedding day look made for dancing the night away. Short wedding dresses are for the bride who loves fun, style, and her shoes. Ranging in a variety of cuts and fabrics there are many ways to look like the bride while showing some leg.
For a classic, feminine look, we always recommend modesty and a hint of vintage. For example, we discovered Rosa Cara’s Neri gown featured in her 2017 collection available at Bridal Boutique of Arizona. With a boat neck, three-quarter length sleeves and a slightly below the knee hem, this gown is the essence of flirty and classic. The sweet lace has a very modern look with finished flowers and pockets, keeping the look up-to-date. We love this gown for a courthouse wedding, or for vow exchanging amongst family and friends on a sea-bound cruise.
If you want to represent a more classic style, and to look like a bridal ballerina, see Justin Alexander’s sweetheart bodice, ribbon lined, tulle gown, from his newest 2017 collection, style number 8800 available at Suzanne’s Bridal Boutique. This style is beautifully classic with a modern edge. Mixing both satin and tulle with vintage buttons, marrying elegance with femininity. We suggest wearing this gown with a pair of ivory, satin, kitten heels, embellished with bows to complete the ensemble.
Short wedding dresses are popping up in all of the designer’s collections this year, and we are so excited for the fun and exciting wedding day looks that they are going to create!
