As we see beautiful intimate weddings happening recently, we’re also seeing some gorgeous short wedding dresses! A short dress can definitely be just as memorable as a floor-length gown and it’s easier to walk around in, too. You also get an opportunity to show-off your shoes, stay comfy all throughout the ceremony until the reception, and be absolutely stylish whether your dress is custom made or RTW. There are different kinds of cuts and silhouettes for short dresses and we’ve gathered a couple of options for you to check out! Read on and find which short dress style is so you!
A Short Mermaid Dress Covered in Lace
This strapless dress will fit like a glove! It’s similar to the mermaid silhouette we typically see on long gowns with flared skirts that cascade to the floor, but this gorgeous number has a skirt that falls just below the knee giving it a fun twist. We also love how this dress looks so classy covered in lace.
A Sleeved Top and Poodle Skirt Combo
What’s great about this kind of ensemble is that it has separate pieces: a sleeved top and a poodle skirt. You can definitely reuse the top and skirt and match them with other outfits in your wardrobe. It’s simple, flattering, and practical!
A Classic Midi Dress
If you’d like a little more length, then a midi-dress would be best! It falls until mid-calf, but still won’t cover your feet. You can wear statement shoes as the accent to your bridal look with this kind of dress. The midi-skirt has also been around since the 40’s and it’s still very on-trend up to now. A timeless style, indeed!
A Modern Filipiniana Dress with a Twist
Here’s a unique take to the modern Filipiniana. A half sweetheart neckline with a butterfly sleeve on one side and an off-shoulder sleeve on the other. Doesn’t that look pretty? This dress was sketched for a bride-to-be and we’re so excited to see the finished product!
A Boat Neck Dress with a Flared Bottom
This boat neck dress with long sleeves and a flared skirt detail is a classic beauty! Its simplicity makes it a great choice for intimate weddings. When you look back on your wedding photos years from now, I bet this kind of dress will still be in style.
A Minimalist A-Line Dress
If you’re a fan of classic and simple silhouettes, then this is the dress for you. A pleated A-line dress is always flattering! Plus, these dainty spaghetti straps make it look even more feminine. This style also proves that you don’t always need a lot of embellishments for a dress to be beautiful. Less is more!
A Flowy Mid-length Dress
For that princess-like feel, this is the dress for you. This strapless dress with some extra flowiness in the skirt is a great alternative to a ball gown. You still get the ease and comfort of a mid-length dress with added glamour.
A Fitted Bodycon Dress
A bodycon type dress is also a head turner! This is great for brides who want to try something different apart from poofy skirts and other traditional wedding dress silhouettes. The cinched waist makes fitted dresses like these look even more flattering, too.
A Straight Cut Dress
Some brides have also chosen short or mid-length dresses for their intimate weddings. A straight cut dress like this is another practical option, and is great for both church and civil ceremonies. It’s comfy and can definitely be in your wardrobe’s rotation. A simple dress also gives you the chance to accessorize as much as you want.
A Draped Dress with a Feather Cape
You can also go for a beautifully draped dress with a feathery cape just like Ava Daza during her civil wedding. Details like fringes and feathers can elevate the look of a short dress and add an eye-catching element.
