It's safe to say short wedding dresses are having a moment. With short dresses going back as far as the 1920s and a major staple of the ‘60s, an increasing number of bridal designers drawing upon past decades for inspiration, and the rise of the nontraditional bride, more women are opting to wear short wedding dresses. We’re all about self-expression, so we love the idea of ditching the big wedding dress in favor of something more flirty and sweet. Besides making one stylish and unexpected fashion statement that will guarantee turning heads, the short wedding dress has a few perks that are certainly hard to deny: It’s less expensive, easier to dance in, has a lighter and cooler touch (in the spirit of approaching summer and all), allows you to show off some truly spectacular pumps, and you know, being able to go to the bathroom without the hassle and Maid of Honor in tow. And did we mention you can also wear it again? We think Yoko Ono, Cindy Crawford, and Audrey Hepburn were certainly on to something. Need more inspo than those icons? Here, eight real brides who pulled off a higher hemline.
