Shop The Short Wedding Dress

Taking our initial cue from the 1950’s affinity for the short wedding dress, we have compiled some modern?options for the bride who enjoys something a little different. From the minute mini, to pretty tea dresses and the short-to-long option, the shorter choice can be both retro and modern,’sexy and seriously gorgeous.

A cropped length can be particularly becoming for petite figures, as they are not swallowed up by yards of overwhelming fabric. Alternatively, a taller bride who wishes to break up her long figure line will also appreciate the shorter side of bridal. If on the taller side, it is best to go for a length that still falls below the lower thigh, so the dress does not appear unintentionally?high on the leg. If you wish to still have the drama of the full length, opt for a short-to-long skirt.

Either way, consider the short option and browse through our top picks from the best of 2016’s bridal offerings.
