20 Short Wedding Dresses & Gowns

Short Wedding Dresses & Gowns

In three words, short is sweet! Make the most of warmer summer days by baring those lovely legs of yours in one of the latest Wedding Trends – mini wedding dresses and short bridal gowns! Ideal for less formal or outdoor weddings, these shorties can be cute, pretty and even classic, depending on the style of the dress.

Whether you’re looking to pull off a modern or vintage style, a short wedding dress can be customised with lace, long sleeves, waist-cinching belts and sashes or a knock-out one shoulder style, as seen in our collection of 22 One Shoulder Wedding Dresses and Gowns.

Adding any of these to the mix will ensure you’re dressed to the nines in a way that you and everyone else will go gaga for!
