First comes love, than comes ring, next comes dress! Whether you're looking for a rocking reception dress, something sweet for a courthouse wedding or a casual look for a laidback affair, we've rounded up our favorite short wedding dresses you can buy right now.
Let's get real — we definitely love the biggest of wedding dresses, with the longest of trains around here. But sometimes, there's nothing like a short wedding dress to show off your modern style, not to mention those rocking legs — no doubt a result of some serious pre-wedding barre workouts. If It girls Whitney Port and Olivia Palermo are any indication, wearing a short wedding dress is a style status symbol! More and more modern brides are opting to skip the big bridal moment for something short, sweet, and super cool.
Whether you're shopping for a city hall ceremony, a vintage inspired wedding (hey, Audrey Hepburn wore short dresses to both of her weddings, and if it's good enough for Audrey!), a little something for your rehearsal dinner, bridal shower or engagement party, or a short reception dress to tear up the dance floor, combing through the thousands of little white dresses out there can be completely overwhelming. Like you need another thing on your to do list, right? So, we did the work for you!
From wedding designers like Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier, and Oscar de la Renta, to fashionista-favorite Self Portrait, and even Topshop, we found a little white dress to suit every bride's style — minimal, modern and sleek, classic, bohemian, or romantic. From the shortest of minis to tea length gowns, and a few high-low hems in between, these short wedding dresses are sure to cement you in the wedding dress hall-of-fame! Oh, and did you say instant gratification? These dresses are all available to buy right this very minute. We thought you'd like that.
