The perfect white dress (or beige…or off-white!) for your wedding day DEFINITELY doesn’t have to be long. In fact, short wedding dresses are becoming more and more popular, not only for brides having a beach wedding or those looking for something to change into for their reception, but for pretty much every other type of wedding and wedding venue.
Just like wedding pantsuits and cropped tops, what’s considered an “appropriate” wedding dress is definitely changing. While I wouldn’t necessarily recommend wearing a short wedding dress to a religious church/temple ceremony, I would strongly encourage a short wedding dress at a restaurant reception, loft/warehouse wedding, a rustic barn wedding, and any other unique wedding venue that lends itself to a more modern (if not vintage) vibe.
The other beauty about short wedding dresses is that they are (typically) less expensive. If you’re looking to save money on your wedding dress I would definitely consider shrinking that dress in order to shrink your budget!
I went shopping for some awesome short wedding dresses for the gallery, above, and LOVE what I found. Whether you’re looking for something a little bohemian or something more prim and proper, there’s a dress style for pretty much everybody.
