With summer (and wedding season!) officially underway, we've got only one thing on our minds: wedding dresses! While most brides still favor a traditional long wedding dress, more and more modern women are considering higher hemlines. Perfect for a summer bash, a short white dress is fit for alternative brides-to-be.

The Fall and Spring 2014 bridal runways were filled with tons of short options that are perfect for warm weather weddings. Designers like Monique Lhuillier, Pronovias, Randi Rahm, and Ines di Santo sent wedding-worthy knee-length numbers down their bridal runways recently, proving a little white dress would look picture-perfect for your walk down the aisle. Available in traditional bridal fabrics like lace, tulle, and organza, non-floor length dresses can be totally reminiscent of a classic wedding dress.

Don't want to part with your long wedding dress? Then consider a shorter design for your bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or a second dress for your reception.

And if you're considering a shorter wedding day look, you'd be in very fashionable company. Celebrities like Keira Knightley and Olivia Palermo both wore short or convertible styles on their wedding day.
