More brides are choosing wedding gowns that are shorter than the traditional wedding dresses of yesterday. Feeling free on the dance floor and cooler overall are among the top reasons brides are making the switch. Most of us don’t wear crinoline or layers of tulle on a normal day. Trying to walk gracefully with pounds of excess material isn’t always the most comfortable way to spend your wedding day!
This Essence of Australia Dress Style D2101 is a prime example of how formal and elegant a shorter gown can be.
This exquisite embroidered knee-length wedding gown from Essense of Australia is made from gorgeous lace on tulle, and features a pretty lace illusion neckline and back. A Diamante-encrusted band slims the waist, and the back zips up under coordinating fabric-covered buttons.
Showcase Your Style
There is nothing less formal when it comes to shorter wedding dresses. Tea length, above the knee or mini style wedding gowns may actually suit your personality better. Sadly, many brides are talked out of even trying these styles on by their disapproving family members. Be bold and stay true to you. If you envision anything less than floor length; give it a go. Share any concerns with your bridal consultant so they can help you maximize your appointment and help you pull some unique options.
This strapless lace mini dress is sophisticated, a bit sexy and absolutely stunning.

Your Ultimate Party Dress
How many friends have re-worn their wedding dress on a girls trip to Vegas, on their honeymoon or for fun on Halloween? More brides are choosing a wedding gown with potential for future dates. Of course, preserving your dress for posterity and your future daughter or family member is still popular; however, if you are truly hoping to get the most bang for your buck, opting for a shorter wedding gown may help you maximize your budget.
Summer weddings mean sunny and bright days… along with a lot of heat. While summer’s rays shouldn’t have the final say in your dream wedding dress, we know you want to look and feel as glam as possible. Short wedding dresses can be just as stylish as a traditional wedding gown, plus they let you feel the occasional breeze. via: brit.co
Save Yourself from Purchasing a Separate Wedding Dress for Your Reception
Deciding on a wedding dress that is comfortable from the start can save you a boat load of cash. While it may be trendy to have two different wedding gowns, think of all that extra money that could be going towards your honeymoon instead! Wearing a wedding dress that you can move comfortably in will allow you to enjoy doing the limbo at your reception and not force you to disappear and go get changed midway through your day.
Less Photo Limitations
As mentioned by “Ash Darling” on Rock N’ Roll Bride,
“YES! Absolutely love a short wedding dress! They are super cute and you get to go to cool places for photos because you’re not so worried about getting dirty.” via Rock & Roll Bride
How many cool photo opportunities did you see online or within your photographer’s portfolio that left you thinking “I LOVE that shot but it will destroy my wedding dress!” One of the best things about shorter wedding dresses is the ultimate freedom they provide. Traipse through creeks, beach front waves or vine strewn forests with careless abandon with your short wedding dress. Show off your shoes, your personality and your smile when you celebrate your wedding day with a shorter wedding gown.
