Brides-to-be have the option to do nearly anything and everything to their hair before the wedding, but if you're a bride with a short cut, hairstyle options may seem almost nonexistent. Not to mention, finding hairspiration may prove to be a bit challenging. Still, having hair that stops at your shoulders instead of down by your waist doesn't mean you can't have a show-stopping hairstyle as you walk down the aisle! If you're a long-haired gal and contemplating the big chop, a short style can give you that fresh look you've been craving.

So, whether you're looking for a pixie cut or something a bit longer, browse through some of our favorite short hairstyles from real weddings.
