Who says you have to wear a long wedding dress on your big day? A bridal gown can be anything your heart desires and anything that reflects your personality! That’s why I highly suggest choosing a dress that makes you feel happy, even if it’s not the usual style expected of a bride. Do not be afraid to explore out of your comfort zone, which is why we’re diving into short wedding dresses today!
If you’re having a casual celebration or just want to make a loud statement, an ankle length dress can be the way to go! Here are the top reason why a short dress is fitting:
1- Casual but Chic short wedding dresses
If you’re looking for a casual look on your wedding day but still want to be glamorous, here are a few options for you. You can go for a sweetheart neckline dress with a tight corset and a voluminous skirt. A short dress doesn’t make it any less bridal, only more fun and comfortable!
In order to look pretty, you have to feel pretty and you definitely will in Molly! This strapless sweetheart neckline gown with its tight corset decorated with boning and polka doted embellishments. A perfect embodiment of beauty and class. Wanna know what’s the best part? You can match it with a sheer bedazzled cape as well!
2- Religious ceremony or Civil Wedding
For those who are holding a religious ceremony such as a katb kteb which are usually an intimate event. For such occasion, a long wedding dress might not be very practical given the fact that you might feel slightly over-dressed. Don’t get me wrong, when you’re a bride there’s no such thing as over-dressed, that’s for sure. After all it is your big day and the only day you get to wear something unique, so embrace it! But still, you might feel weird wearing that extravagant wedding gown with everyone around you in casual wear. In that sense, a cocktail wedding might do the trick as it’s still a bridal dress but with a modern casual twist.
This ankle-length wedding dress by Eva Lendel can be a great option for your katb kteb or even civil marriage. Its high-neck with Juliette long sleeves are cover in 3D floral lace and polka-dot details. The tulle skirt falls down just above the ankles to give you that casual yet elegant look.
3- Second Bridal Look
For the brides who are not sold on the short wedding gown trend, no worries you can still participate. Instead of wearing one dress to both the ceremony and the reception, you can always choose two and still look ‘bridal’. Start your big day with a long, traditional wedding gown for these royal walking down the aisle pictures, then change into your short dress for the party.
How stunning is this short dress? Ella is a corset bodice dress with a tutu-like skirt and thick straps. It’s defined around the waist in a sparkly belt to outbalance the plain white color! Aside from a second look, you can always choose Ella for your bridal shower look. Imaging how cute you’ll look wearing this flirty short dress with fun heels, a soft make up and loose waves? Now I can’t wait to wear this one on my bridal shower!
4- Rock that Exit Look!
Are you familiar with the exit look? Basically, some brides like to change into another dress, something casual to exit their venue. It’s a popular tradition in the USA where guests gather around the newly-weds and see them off. Even if you’re not going to have an exit moment, I think a comfortable dress is a must after a long day. In that sense, I would recommend changing into Asti dress.
This simple wedding dress is a straight across neckline with detachable long Juliette sleeves, cinched around the waist in a thick belt. what’s great about this dress is that you can wear it more than once. Just because a dress is white doesn’t mean it’s bridal, you know. Pair it with colorful heels and jewelry, a fun bag and look your best on your next occasion!
