Youthful and flirty – shorter wedding dress lengths are ideal for brides who feel swamped by full length gowns, want a non-traditional wedding dress, or are dressing with the summer weather in mind.
Bridal catwalks showcasing spring 2016 collections were awash with short styles; Oscar de la Renta’s collection features mini-length skater style skirts paired with a variety of necklines including Bardot, high ruffle and lace illusion, whereas Mira Zwillinger favours the wedding two-piece ensemble with swaying tulle skirts, and Naeem Khan showcases feather skirts for a more grown-up, sophisticated take on the short wedding dress.
For a slightly more modest way to wear a short wedding dress, go for a gown that just grazes the knee. The Catherine Deane and Lama Jouni dresses pictured are classic city-wedding gowns, whereas the three-dimensional fern detail dress by Marco and Maria would be perfect for a countryside or garden tea-party wedding.
